Today's guest is Todd Snapp from Stridepoint, the developer of Relay Managed Security Awareness.

We do a deep dive into "Security Awareness" services. And, of course, my big question was about the managed piece of this.

Several companies will now send out test phishing email to catch client users opening things they shouldn't. Relay Managed Security Awareness goes way beyond this, including preventive micro education. We also answer the question, "What is security micro education?"

Official bio:

Todd is the President of Stridepoint LLC. Todd and his team have led the charge against Social Engineering and developed key programs and systems to help organizations defend themselves. Todd was instrumental in performing ethical social engineering attacks on some of the largest companies in the US, including government and Fortune 500 organizations. The attacks yielded unprecedented access to the organizations’ sensitive and highly secured data using only the telephone, email, and facility visits.

With over 20 years of experience educating contact centers and managing large global networks, he has insight into the marriage between technical and non-technical security. A self-proclaimed “ethical con man,” Todd has made it his career goal to enlighten the corporate and government worlds to the serious threat posed by low-tech hackers.
