InSecurity Podcast: Kip Boyle – A Security Sherpa at Your Service

Are you active on LinkedIn?

Not active like the ones who just say, “congratulations on your work anniversary.” We mean active like asking questions, replying to posts, and really engaging with your contacts.

There is a lot of great conversation out there that can provide answers to some important questions and contribute to solving problems in your work environment.

One of the things that makes LinkedIn great is that there are sincere people who genuinely want to help, not just their personal connections, but the larger community.

Kip Boyle is one of those people. Some people might find it enough to put in the work as a CISO. Others may stop after publishing their book. Not Kip Boyle. Kip is out there every day engaging fellow security professionals in conversations that spur creative approaches to solving problems.

His latest project is looking into how he can ease the entrance into the world of cybersecurity. Take a moment to check out Masterclass: How to Break Into Cybersecurity

This week, Matt welcomes Kip Boyle back to the InSecurity Podcast. Kip is a cybersecurity CEO and author who is also a prolific contributor to LinkedIn. We go through some of the more thought provoking conversations Kip has started on LinkedIn over the past year. These are the topics people are discussing. Join us to hear what the person who made the statement or asked the question has to say!
