Physical/Cyber Convergence - Live from Dubai w/Brian Seeley & Nathan Swain

This week Phelim goes to Dubai to attend GISEC - an actual live, in-person cybersecurity event! That’s right, folks. It’s not a typo. So… is this a sign that things are returning to normal or are we jumping the gun here, people? 


Listen in to find out how it all went as Phelim chats with two of the top speakers from the event. One is a U.S. Marine, Brian Seely, who is the only person EVER to hack into and wiretap the U.S. Secret Service and FBI. And the other, Nathan Swain has a list of equally exciting roles, including having safeguarded the virtual vaults of the Bank of England as its former Lead Cyber Security Advisor
