Top Security & Cloud Podcasts

I get asked all the time, “how do you stay abreast of the latest trends in security & cloud?”.  I am an audio learner and I spend a lot of time in the car so listening to podcasts is one of the most efficient ways for me to learn. I listen to a variety of podcasts while I am working out, driving to work, or doing the laundry [had to put that one in for my wife].  I am also a big believer in sharing so I have listed the top 10 podcasts.  This is not a definitive list but it does get you started.  If you have one’s that you think I should have mentioned, please feel free to share.

Podcast Title Podcast Description Location
Security Now TWIT One of the first podcasts on security that I started to listen. Steve Gibson does a great job of covering the latest news and threats but also going into the background education on DNS, Encryption. I encourage people to look through the archives especially if you are just getting started in this space Here
PaulDotCom Security Weekly A great podcast that goes deep technically. These guys share openly and cover a wide range of topics. However, for the younger members of the audience pool there are some topics that do deserve the EXPLICIT tag. Here
Network Security Podcast Sad news….these guys just recently announced they are going silent….work and family commitments have taken over.  Good luck!  The archives have some great content that covers what is happening in the overall security space. Although the title suggest traditional network layer security they cover a number of larger security issues. Here
Ship Show A great title and focus area on what it means to be in the DEVOPS community.  The recent topic on QA is especially important as it pertains to security.  Not sure the DevOps model has the security/QA completely handled yet. Having said that our team has been doing this since 2008. Here
RiskyBiz Great topics on a variety of security news items and products.  The latest review of is really interesting. Here
This Week in Google A great podcast that I have listened to for years.  Jeff Jarvis has great insights on privacy topics and how Google is responding.  Gina Trapani, founding editor of Lifehacker, always has great tech insights. Here
This Week in Enterprise The Digital Jesuit, Fr. Robert Ballecer, SJ, takes us through the latest news from Enterprise IT.  He has a wealth of knowledge on compliance, running large IT organization, and his guests are always strong IT practitioners.   Here
