https://www.swordandthescript.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/bab_011_tim_callahan.jpg There’s a talent shortage in cybersecurity and it’s been that way for several years. Because of that shortage, some analysts forecast millions of cybersecurity roles will go vacant over the next few years. One source of cybersecurity talent is veterans because they have a natural inclination to protect information and gauging risk. That’s according to Tim Callahan, a 23-veteran of the Air Force, who today serves as the global chief information security officer (CISO) at Aflac. That idea is a big part of the conversation in this episode. See the show notes online at www.bootsaboutbusiness.com.

The Ron Burgundy Podcast

The Ron Burgundy Podcast

Will Ferrell reprises his role as Ron Burgundy in his brand new Ron Burgundy Podcast! Each episode has a different theme in which Ron engages in conversation with another notable person on the topic at hand. In true Ron Burgundy fashion, these conversations have a tendency to go off the rails, and we find out things about people we never knew we wanted to know. In season 2, Ron considers a run for President, continues to perform music, and blacks out at work. In Season 1, Ron addressed important issues like bullying and the mind-expanding nature of meditation, and attempted to ultimately answer the question “seriously, what is a podcast?”
