As a leader of a security consulting firm I find this podcast the most useful. While there are other podcasts that keep you up to date on recent hacks and technical tools, this podcast covers the broadest topics in language everyone can understand. Not every buyer of Cybersecurity has deep...Read full review »

I really like this show and have been listening to it since it began. Some of the things I enjoy the most is just how approachable the hosts are. If you send them questions they can go on the show. I also enjoy the what’s worse. It’s a great risk management exercise where I get to see some...Read full review »

Would certainly be a lot more useful to better discuss the successes vendors have had in engaging with CISOs and what’s made them successful. In recent months were listening to the standard put-downs of vendors we see across industry.
sputnick45 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/20/20
I thoroughly enjoy listening to these every week. The podcast is carefully segmented and entertaining while educational. The timing length of the shows are great. Keep up the good work, I hope it never finishes!

As a sales engineer for a vendor, David’s opinion and the opinions shared by his guests is actually really vital to my role.

I always enjoy listening to this podcast when driving to a meeting re-center myself in understanding what’s important to a cyber security professional and what they absolutely despise from reps. Great way to keep yourself in check and bring up topics that are important to them. Thank you David...Read full review »

You have earn the words of praise as your podcast has helped me better understand how to further my career in cyber security so not to make the same mistake others have made ... Keep it up ... Always get excited when there is a new episode
Cybersecurity Philosopher via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/18/19
Thanks David and Mike - your podcast has upped my game and sharpened my sword significantly! The struggle is as a seller is getting fed canned marketing messages, media zero days, and buzz words 24/7. Your podcast has helped me see more clearly into what actually matters for security leaders,...Read full review »

I hope to become a CISO one day and I really appreciate the how the conversations of the show bring different aspects, opinions, and insights of what being a decision maker at that level is all about.
H-Squared-01 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/21/19
I have been listening to this podcast for about 3 months now. Coming from a non-technical background, it allowed me to immerse myself in the world of cyber security. It’s intriguing to hear from the perspectives of CISOs across a wide variety of industries. Highly recommend the subscribe!

SeanGRichards via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/06/19
I have listened to most of the CISO series podcasts. Much of the discussions are unfiltered with geniune advice from the hosts and guests on it. I appreciated this series and will continue to listen and support it.

A podcast with good attitude, fresh, funny and most important: useful & interesting. Good chemistry with the hosts and a professional post edition.
OrioruSan via Apple Podcasts · Spain · 04/02/19
My job is to convey our value to Ciso’s and positions alike. This podcast helps me better understand the other side as well as what they’d be looking for from me. It addresses many of the things i would want to ask a Ciso, but do not typically have the ability to do so. My only feedback would be...Read full review »

I am a salesperson for a security vendor and the reason why this podcast has been valuable for me is listening to David and Mike's feedback around what we shouldn't be doing when we reach out to our prospects. We don't know what we're doing wrong until someone tells us, so these...Read full review »

I’m a vendor for a leading identity governance company. It’s still SO hard to get the attention of the senior leaders, even when you know you have something of value to them. Your show gives a little glimpse behind the curtain of why it’s so hard, and practical tips for trying to make a more...Read full review »

Your podcast should be a requirement for all sales teams at every security company regardless of account status. The BDR team as well as the person who manages the “Wal-Mart” account should be listening to your podcast in my opinion. If every security company could force their teams to practice...Read full review »

Q the Appsec guy via Apple Podcasts · Singapore · 11/14/18
Great content, great humour, great "style". This is welcome remedy to vendor loaded "yet-another-podcast" and market cliches. It´s real for real security professionals, and not come across anything quite as good. A recommended antidote to the market snake oil!Read full review »

I’ve spent a good portion of the last few days listening to David’s podcast and reading his collection of articles. I’ve been in sales for more than 6 years, but in security for only 6 months.
