The Final Episode
17:04This isn’t the easiest thing to do. Now that I’m writing the podcast post after recording and editing the podcast, I have a sense of relief. For the last month plus, I’ve tried to decide whether or not to shut down the podcast. The fact that it took this long to record a final episode tells me that it was time. I wrote about my reasoning in a blog post on the main page. This may or may not be the end. That largely depends on if someone would like to pick up the podcast and produce it themselves. I’d love to guide and mentor someone on the journey. The podcast has been beneficial to me and the many people who have reached out providing appreciative feedback. I’d love to see it continue. I’m also content that this is the end of the podcast. I will be at BSides Nashville shooting pictures and very likely be at DEFCON manning the Social Engineering door. Come see high or reach out to me on social media (@TimothyDeBlock) or email (timothy[.]deblock[@]gmail[.]com).
What is Emotet?
31:17Daniel (@notdanielebbutt) and Kyle (@chaoticflaws) are the two guys I go to for clicking on suspicious links. Recently, I’ve been seeing more Emotet. So, I wanted to have the guys on to talk about the malware that is making a comeback. The CFP is open for Converge Conference. The conference is May 16 and 17. They’ll have one day for blue team topics and one day for red team topics. Make sure to submit your malware related talk topics. Also make sure to check out MiSec if you’re in Michigan.
State of the podcast for 2018
20:502018 was a good year. I made some format changes that I’m really happy with. I picked up some new audio equipment. I resolved my recording process (I think). I’m not a big statistics guy. I don’t really care if two people or 200 people listen. I’m just happy to have some really great conversations with people and contribute back to the community. I’ve got a new recording setup that will hopefully make producing a podcast much easier. I’ve setup a Twitch channel for gaming and potentially recording EIS episodes on. Follow for notifications on when I go live. I’ll be trying my first EIS episode Monday, January 7, 2019, at 8:30 p.m. CT. I’ve also turned what was my attempt at a GamerSec Discord channel into the Exploring Information Security channel. Here you can interact with us while record (or on Twitch). Join other people interesting in the podcast. Game with other infosec professionals. Thank you for being a listener of the podcast. I am refreshed from my month off and energized for what’s ahead in 2019.

What is advanced OSINT?
1:05:14This past DerbyCon, I had the opportunity to take the Advanced OSINT with Ryan (@joemontmania) and Colleen (@UnmaskedSE). The course was great! It was different from some of the other OSINT courses I’ve taken. They covered very specific techniques and tools. After presenting on those techniques and tools we were given the opportunity to dive in from a free-form standpoint.
When will passwords go away?
9:16This is a solo episode. I had the idea after sitting in a vendor pitch today where one of the sales guy mentioned that passwords WILL die. I disagree. I think passwords have been around for a long time and will continue to be around. They’re easily replaceable and is stored in the most secure location. Unless there are mind readers, then we’re all just screwed anyway. I would love some thoughts and feedback on this one.

Why communication in infosec is important - Part 2
26:37Claire (@ClaireTills) doesn’t have your typical roll in infosec. She sits between the security teams and marketing team. It’s a fascinating roll and something that gives her a lot of insight into multiple parts of the business. What works and what doesn’t work in communicating security to the different areas.
