Peter Kim of The Hacker Playbook series joins me today to talk about all things hacking! Peter runs a popular west coast hacker meetup, and I was fortunate enough to attend his Real World Red Team training, which I wrote a review about here. Peter sat down with me over Skype to talk about:

  • The origin story of The Hacker Playbook series (btw please buy it, don't steal it! :-)
  • How do you balance work and family life when trying to pwn all the things and have a personal life and significant other?
  • How do you break into security when your background is in something totally different, like a mechanic, artist or musician?
  • What are some good strategies when approaching a red team engagement - do you always start "fresh" from the perimeter? Do you assume compromise and throw a dropbox on the network? Some combination of both?
  • What are some other low-hanging fruit organizations can use to better defend their networks?
  • Do you run across some of these good defenses - like honeypots - in your engagements?
  • If you could put on a wizard hat and solve one security problem (be it technical, personnel or something else) what would it be?

...and more!
