7 Minute Security

Dec 7, 2017

Two weird things happening in this episode:

  • I'm not in the car, and thus not endangering myself and others while podcasting and driving!

  • My once beloved lav mic made a trip through the Johnson family's washer and dryer. I don't know that she'll ever record anything again. We'll see once it fully dries out (fingers crossed).

I spent some time this last week getting back into Windows systems forensics, which has been really fun. If you want a play-by-play guide with some fantastic, practical, hands-on advice, grab yourself a copy of the Blue Team Handbook: Incident Response Edition. I also started a forensics page on BPATTY.

Also, I picked up a Google Home Mini for $30 and can honestly say it quickly has found a special place in my tech/geek heart...even if it is recording everything I say and sending it to the NSA. But a small device that will play Michael Buble's Christmas album as soon as I command it with my voice? Worth the privacy sacrifice.

Finally, if you're in the St. Paul, MN area tomorrow and wanna hear me come talk about "Blue Team on a Budget," come to the Government IT Symposium - more info here.
