This is the Origin of Pwned. My background includes many different security positions over the years working for a variety of different organizations. I have held a variety different security positions from security auditor, to a security engineer, all the way to being the chief information security officer for a fortune 750 company.

Today I spend a large part of my day talking with security professionals from all over the country in many different industries. Over the years I have talked to folks at hundreds of different companies and a little over 1000 security professionals at those organizations.

In order to be the best advisor to those companies and those security professionals I have become a voracious consumer of content. Some of the most common ways that I consume content is through audio. With the biggest audio collection being podcasts and audiobooks. However, I had almost no Information Security podcasts in my subscription list.

So true to my entrepreneurial form I decided to produce my own weekly information security podcast. The podcast is intended to be short in duration and try to right size the security information that I provide to fit within your busy schedule. Each week I will share questions and  conversations that I have with companies and security professionals from all over the country in many different industries. Some questions and comments are related to security framework and best practices, some are related to security technologies available to us today, and some are  discussion of general industry challenges.
