39: When Hazel met Cisco Talos' first responders
Show Notes

We’re delighted to be joined today by members of the Cisco Talos Threat Detection & Response Group, a group we haven’t chatted to on the podcast before, but hopefully this goes some way to making up for that error.

Joining Hazel for a brilliant discussion, are Christopher Marshall (far better known as Marshall), Director of Talos threat detection and response, Diana Brown, Security Research Engineer, Doaa Osman, Security Analyst, and Lilith Wyatt, Security Research Engineer.

The Threat Detection and Response team are Cisco customers' first responders. They're hunting for the hardest-to-find threats, and for one team, they come into work every day and try and do something that's never been done before.

We have a chat about the team's day to roles, and how they each got into the security industry. Each path is fascinating, and unique.

We also learn about the supportive culture within Talos, and how each team member is given the freedom and encouragement to do their best work.

This conversation is for anyone who wants to get into the threat detection and response aspect of the security industry, or who may have kids or mentees who would like to do so.
