Healthy Paranoia Show 13: To CISSP, Or Not To CISSP

Welcome to another lofty episode of Healthy Paranoia where we take on the profound problem of security certifications, specifically the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP). Joining Mrs. Y and Greg Ferro is an illustrious cast of infosec luminaries, including; well-known security analyst Wendy Nather, founder Grecs, IPv6 fanatic Joe Klein, and the enigmatic Jay James.

We cover topics such as:

  • Cert Junkies
  • How listening to this podcast will fulfill your CPE requirements
  • Cloud constipation and why Greg Ferro is like Roto-Rooter
  • That Richard Bejtlich‘s name should always be invoked in respectful, hushed tones (genuflection optional)
