Silver Bullet 84: W Hord Tipton of ISC^2

hi sc-l,

Paco Hope and I have debated security certifications for years (a friendly battle of sorts).  During my last trip to 
London on a train to go visit Ross Anderson in Cambridge, Paco suggested that I interview ISC^2 Executive Director Hord 
Tipton.  I'm glad I did!

Hord and I talk about his long and storied career in technology and security.   And yes, we talk about certifying 
software security professionals with the CSSLP certification (which Paco helped develop).  I'm still not sure I believe 
in it, but I do understand what Hord is trying to accomplish more fully.  Have a listen:

As always, thanks for your feedback, and thanks to IEEE S&P for co-sponsoring the podcast.
