InSecurity Podcast: Javvad Malik on the Illusion of Protection

We live in a world where attacks and compromises are daily front-page news, and we know both intellectually and emotionally that protection is ultimately an illusion. The only hope we really have is to move to prevention, which is an idea that runs counter to the popular “detect and respond” mantra.

In this debut episode of the InSecurity Podcast, host Shaun Walsh is joined by special guest Javvad Malik (@J4vv4D), as they delve into one of the more subtle yet pervasive issues in security: The Illusion of Protection.
