On this week's show we're having an extended chat with 34-year NSA veteran Brian Snow. During his career he rose to director level -- he acted as technical director of three divisions within the agency -- before he retired in 2006.
Brian joins us to talk about the Snowden disclosures and how the NSA's culture changed post 9/11.
Brian also had some great comments on quantum crypto concerns that I've broken out into a separate podcast - I've put that one in the RB2 feed along with a recording of a panel I hosted at the Splendour in the Grass music festival a few weeks ago. You can find them in the RB2 feed.
This week's show is brought to you by Tenable Network Security, thanks to them, and in this week's sponsor interview we're chatting with Tenable CEO Ron Gula about continuous monitoring.
Adam Boileau joins us for this week's news, as does special guest Andrew Colley.
