Nerd Out Security Panel Discussion: EP 14. Reports Galore!

In the latest episode of Nerd Out, Dave is joined by some old friends, Joe and Bridget, while they welcome in Amanda Mason to the panel where they discuss the latest series of reports from the FBI, the U.S. Senate, and from across the pond and the Manchester Arena bombing inquiry. They discuss the value of these type of reports, and the lessons that can be learned from the observations. Amanda then shares some of the insight from the January 6th incident from a first-hand view of the situation as it unfolded. After going through the reports and calling out some of the challenges highlighted the panel goes through a rapid fire session with questions ranging from security trends, ransomware (sorry Jen), and what the panel is reading or watching. The reports discussed include:

Active Shooter Incidents 20-Year Review, 2000-2019 
Examining the U.S. Capitol Attack: A Review of the Security, Planning, and Response Failures of January 6
