Malware Report Podcast: Marcus Sachs’ Take on Cybersecurity

December 3, 2009,  marked the 150th episode of the Malware Report Podcast (http://www.eset.com/podcasts). We talk about a lot more than malware and for the 150th we invited Marcus Sachs, director of the SANS Internet Storm Center to be our special guest to chat about the current cyber security landscape as well as the government’s role in thwarting cybercrime.

Marcus has a vast depth of experience in fighting cybercrime both in the private sector and with the government, and he was also named a member of the Commission on Cyber Security for the 44th Presidency. Additional information on Marcus can be found At http://www.sachs.us/marc/

In the podcast, Marcus references a couple of websites. One of them is http://csis.org/program/commission-cybersecurity-44th-presidency. Marcus helped to put together this report. An additional site is http://www.dhs.gov/files/partnerships/editorial_0206.shtm. Partnerships between the private sector and government are essential in fighting cybercrime and you can participate. http://www.dhs.gov/files/programs/editorial_0827.shtm talks about the National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP) and http://www.dhs.gov/files/programs/gc_1179866197607.shtm give more information about some of the sectors that participate.
