Risky Business #377 -- Wassenaar back to drawing board, latest from BlackHat

You're drunk, Wassenaar. Go home.
06 Aug 2015 » Risky Business

On this week's show we discuss the BIS decision to ditch its car-a-zay plans for Wassenaar regulation, the latest car hacking news and more.

We also check in with Trey Ford in this week's feature slot. Trey was the General Manager of the BlackHat conference, these days he works at Rapid7, and he joins us to talk about the vibe in Vegas at this year's conference.

This week's show is brought to you by RSA Security! Big thanks to RSA for making this week's show possible. RSA's very own Chris Thomas will be joining us in this week's sponsor interview to talk about the role industry should be playing in education. RSA is helping a few universities set up "learning SOCs", but where to from there?

Don't forget you can now support the Risky Business page via our Patreon campaign.

Oh, and do add Patrick and Adam on Twitter if that's your thing.
