In this ranty edition of the Exploring Information Security podcast, Jayson E. Street joins me to discuss how to achieve security awareness through social engineering.

Jayson (@jaysonstreet), is the VP of Information Security at Sphereny. He and April Wright (@aprilwright) are doing training at both Black Hat and DerbyCon on how to achieve security awareness through social engineering. The training focuses on helping blue team members setup effective security awareness programs.
