The Definitive List of Cyber Security Podcasts (in progress)

With all these lists of top 10 cybersecurity podcasts kicking around we wondered how many cyber podcasts really were out there and how many were still live and producing weekly, daily or monthly cyber security shows.

Turns out there are loads!

We know this is still not the definitive list (there’s 47 here and yes that pained us) but we will constantly be updating this for it to at least become the most up to date list of cyber security podcasts!

If you’ve listened to a good one we have missed or want to plug your own drop it in the comments and we will add to the list!

Apologies to our French and German visitors, we are putting together a list of the best cyber security podcasts in other languages!

Application Security Weekly decrypts development for the Security Professional – exploring how to inject security into their organization’s Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) in a fluid and transparent way; Learn the tools, techniques, and processes necessary to move at the speed of DevOps (even if you aren’t a DevOps shop yet). The target audience for Application Security Weekly spans the gamut of Security Engineers and Practitioners that need to level-up their skills in the Application Security space – as well as enabling “Cyber Curious” developers to get involved in the Application Security process at their organizations. To a lesser extent, we hope to arm Security Managers and Executives with the knowledge to be conversational in the realm of DevOps – and to provide the right questions to ask their colleagues in development, along with the metrics to think critically about the answers they receive.
