When I think of a NAS, I generally think of it in terms of a storage device. Then again, that kind of ignores the whole “network-attached” part!

It’s become a media narrative that there is a “talent gap” in cybersecurity. The story goes that there are plenty of good paying jobs, but not enough qualified people to do them. On the face of it, there seem to be good reasons. The spate of high profile data leaks and hacks have made security a front and center concern for organizations of all sizes. As the sophistication of these attacks increase, it makes sense that the number of jobs needed would also increases. But Ben Tomhave can’t stand this narrative. He makes the case that this talent gap is actually symptomatic of organizational dysfunction.
Ken Nalbone and Rich Stroffolino are running down the IT news of the week. This time they are talking about the latest US-Huawei tensions, Slack reaching 10 million DAU, Rubrik’s data leak, and Japan’s plan to hack into their own IOT devices.
