The Mr. Robot Guide to Security Strategy, Part 2: Off-Camera w/ James Plouffe
Mr. Robot’s plots are fiction but based on reality. Designing security exploits is like filming the show, with most of the work “off-camera” and behind-the-scenes. In this episode, James describes why the transactional nature of IT makes organizations vulnerable and why CIOs and CISOs need to fundamentally rethink how they structure and prioritize the work of their teams. We also discuss how to make attackers noisy, the role of laziness in hacking, and why James didn’t get a consulting gig for the recent Queen biopic starring Rami Malek.
