Brian Snow worked for the USA's National Security Agency from 1971 until a few years ago. By the time he retired from the agency he had risen through the ranks to the position of technical director, information assurance.

He's also one of Risky Business listeners' favourite guests.

This week's show features an in depth conversation with Brian about all sorts of recent trends in the information security area -- Stuxnet, technical debt, surveillance news and more.

It's a cracker interview.

This week's show is brought to you by Tenable Network Security, and that company's CSO, Marcus Ranum, will be along to give his take on Stuxnet. He says it changes nothing and is not an act of so-called cyber-war. In fact, Marcus says (quite rightly) that there's no proof whatsoever that Stuxnet was the work of a state-run agency.
