Ep 9: A Journey from Information Security to Cyber Security

On our most recent podcast we featured cyber security expert Derek Gabbard from FourV Systems. Derek has spent his multi-decade career working with cyber security systems and protecting assets—which has led him to what he does now, an interesting combination of security and research. These days, there are so many ways to protect your systems, devices and people. What’s not talked about is the resulting data and evaluation of those protective measures. Are they working? Are you identifying risks and then optimizing them? Gabbard says, “We’re basically trying to show you how you evolve.” There’s So Much Data Out There, How Do You Manage It All? Derek states that there’s no perfect way to create a rock-solid correlation between an occurrence within your system and an alert, but with the amount of incoming information they can create metadata that helps refine the process to reach a point where the data is helpful. The more data that is gathered and organized, the more trends, an...

Ep 8: Finding Balance in IT Innovation & Standardization in Education

Finding Balance in IT Innovation and Standardization in Education Plug in your headphones and kick back, it’s time for episode 8 of IT Time! This week we welcomed Matthew Belardi, the Director of Business Information Systems at Education Affiliates. Matthew joined us to talk about the challenges that educational organizations face when implementing mobile devices in the classroom. Matt has many years of experience moving education systems from archaic platforms into true student information systems. He estimates that he has been to more than 75 schools across the country to affect change in learning management platforms. We have noticed that updating and managing technologies in the professional ecosystem is a growing theme for all industries— check out our discussion about the healthcare system with Christian Boucher here— the education sphere is no different. As technology rapidly advances, new ways to afford, incorporate and maintain devices and software must be addressed. So,...

Ep 7: Return of the Start Button and Other 2016 Tech Trends

The Return of the Start Button and Other 2016 Tech Trends This week’s podcast guest joins us from Spiceworks, a community of IT pros and platform that offers free tools to make the sysadmin’s life easier. Meet Peter Tsai, Spiceworks’ IT Content Guru who lends his experience in IT to unique technical content that IT pros can’t get enough of. Peter certainly knows the industry; he has a background that includes positions as a sysadmin, programmer, technical writer and server engineer, so the content he is creating (think webcasts, infographics, IT articles and reports) really engages the millions of community members he serves. Our last podcast featuring James Foster from ZeroFOX touched on the trends that we’re seeing in security and social media, so this week we wanted to keep the ‘trend’ ball rolling and see what Peter thinks will be big in IT in 2016. So, what’s Spiceworks? It’s a decade-old community that produces free applications for IT pros to help them do their jobs ...

Ep 6: Social Media Security: The Latest Threat Vector

How Safe Are You On Social Media? This week we welcome James C. Foster; CEO of Maryland-based security firm ZeroFOX. Foster and his organization are working to protect against threats on social media and other digital communication channels. The ZeroFOX platform is a cloud platform designed to monitor social media entities (accounts, people, keywords, hashtags, etc.) and detect cyber security threats impacting your organization. Foster, a security industry titan sat down to speak with our team to discuss the many threats we face as individuals and as an organization through our activity on social media. Why is Social Media Such a Target? According to Foster, social media is the largest, fastest-growing digital communication platform there has ever been. It outpaced email in 2014 and is on pace to outgrow the web by 2017. For some, especially the growing, tech-dependent generations, it replaces email, text message and other Internet usage with much greater risk. Why is ZeroFOX releva...

Episode 5.5: Apple vs. FBI – More than a single phone.

Bryan Glancey Weighs In: Apple vs. FBI If you’re like us, you’ve been keeping a close watch on the latest news about Apple vs. the FBI in a case that could have serious implications for everyone using an Apple operating system, and beyond.

On the other hand, the ramificationsand precedent set by unlocking the phone could undermine trust at the foundations of one of the largest industries in the world.

Your Mobile Device’s Most Vulnerable Point? You. This week’s podcast guest really got us thinking about how we use our mobile phones.

Episode 4: Shadow IT – The Happy Virus

Shadow IT? It’s Not As Scary As It Sounds This week’s episode of the Tricerat IT Time podcast features James Quigley, CEO of Canvas (check them out!) and frequent TechCrunch contributor. James recently wrote a piece on the growing utilization of Shadow IT that caught our eye, so we were thrilled to have him join us to dig further into the concept. Let’s Take a Look Back. Years ago, when quick advances in technology were a ‘nice-to-have’ and not a necessity; organizations weren’t sitting on the edge of their seats waiting for the next release. James mentions, “there wasn’t somebody who would disrupt your business in six-month’s time if you didn’t deploy the right technology.” Things were released slower. IT departments had more time to evaluate products and software. Enter the Millennial. With a new generation of workers (who, by the way don’t remember life before the Internet) standards and timelines have changed. With that type of pressure to maintain, IT professionals ...

Episode 3: Legal Lessons in Moving Beyond Courier Service

What We Learned From My Cousin Vinny This week we’re welcoming Craig Kalty of Custom Systems to the studio. Craig has 25 years experience in network integrations andworks with several large law firms whoare currently striving toward BYOD-friendly environments. In his recent experience, Craig has seen a repeated trend: an increased focus on simplicity and security. There is a lot of confidential information, documents, and photos, (such as the infamous photo from My Cousin Vinny of the 1963 Pontiac Tempest…and not the ’64 Buick Skylark), that need to be safely moved from the hands of one person to another. This need to move information begs the question, are we really ready to say farewell to the courier service? Are clouds safer? Legal IT (like most large IT industries with a lot of valuable data) is making progress, slowly but surely. Craig sees a theme: the law firms aren’t really driving technology, rather the technologies available are drive what the law firms are able to do...
