Conversations 16: Reflections on Ruxcon 2016

Ruxcon logoThis episode of Corrupted Nerds takes a look at the Ruxcon 2016 information security conference held in Melbourne on 22 and 23 October.

Just like our look at Ruxcon 2015, I’m joined by Michael McKinnon, now director of commercial services at Sense of Security; and Darren Pauli, security reporter for The Register.

There’s also a conversation about measuring risk with Ron Gula, founder of Tenable Network Security.

The discussion was recorded on 28 October 2016 on the banks of the Coburg Lake Reservoir in Melbourne. The interview with Ron Gula was also recorded on 28 October 2016.
