In this episode Dale interviews Sean McBride. Sean was on some of the earliest Unsolicited Response episodes when he was a Founder and Analyst with Critical Intelligence, the first ICS Threat Intel company. The first 10 minutes of the interview discuss the state of ICS threat intel today.
Then the discussion shifts to Sean’s current job and passion, creating and running an ICS Cybersecurity Associates Degree program at Idaho State University. We go into what students learn, what jobs they are likely to get, how to scale up the number of students and more.
