Lloyd vs. Lloyd

An informal discussion of current issues in cybersecurity

Are Two Clouds Better Than One?

April 30, 2021

Two heads are often better than one – that’s why we started recording these “Lloyd vs. Lloyd” CTO Perspectives.

But are two clouds better than one? There’s a lot of talk about multi-cloud, but it’s no simple thing to think through all the security implications of choosing one or the other. Add in multi-cloud and hybrid environments, and you increase the complexity of the situation.

Join Mike & Wayne, RedSeal’s CTO and Federal CTO, for a discussion of the good, the bad, and the ugly of single and multi-cloud strategies.

Taking Over A Network

November 10, 2020

What do you do when you find yourself responsible for the security of a network you don’t know? Without an understanding of what’s on a network and how it’s set up, you can’t protect it.

This is something that happens to all of us:

  • You join a new organization
  • Knowledgeable people leave
  • Your organization merges with or acquires another
  • A new network management company comes in

Join RedSeal’s two CTOs – Dr. Mike Lloyd and Wayne Lloyd – to get their thoughts on the best and quickest way to understand and protect a network you take over.

Defend Forward, But Protect Your Base

September 15, 2020

Our national Cyber Protection Teams (CPTs) are taking U.S. cyber defense beyond our borders. As part of a Defend Forward program, they’re being invited into the networks of other nations to find and shine a light on malware – so we can all be protected from it.

But while they’re defending forward, there is a role for all of us on the home front. There are things we can do to protect our networks and keep our cyber teams in the fight.

In this broadcast, Wayne and Mike discuss Defend Forward and how we can be our own cyber protection team back at home.

When Fido Moos and Bessy Barks:
Security in a Cloud-First World

July 20, 2020

The cloud presents an approach to DevOps affectionately called “pets vs. cattle,” which forces a different cybersecurity strategy. As with all change, the pets vs. cattle approach creates opportunities and risks of doing it wrong.

In this broadcast, CTOs Dr. Mike Lloyd and Wayne Lloyd discuss this approach. They’ll share their different perspectives as they cover:

  1. What “pets vs. cattle” means
  2. If it’s a net benefit or a curse for cybersecurity
  3. Mistakes can you make when implementing it
