In this episode of Security Nation, we chat with Wendy Nather, head of advisory CISO services at Duo Security, about her work bringing awareness around the unspoken issue of the Security Poverty Line (aka, how difficult it is for organizations to build effective security programs when they lack the resources to make it happen). Wendy talks about how budget, expertise, capability, and influence can influence an organization’s security standing, the issues that arise when security pros can’t agree on what’s needed to be “secure,” and the importance of empathy in understanding why organizations may make decisions that are considered less secure.

In our Rapid Rundown, Tod and Jen share their biggest takeaways from Black Hat and DEF CON and discuss being on "BlueWatch" (*cue the "Baywatch" theme song*) for RDP vulnerabilities such as DejaBlue.
