Important note: you need to email us from a protonmail.com to take advantage of the baked-in security. Emailing from a Gmail account kind of defeats the purpose :-)

Who are you?
Hi, I'm Brian, I run 7 Minute Security, LLC and you can read more about me here.
I was in IT for ~12 years focusing primarily on data center build-outs, physical-to-virtual conversions, security assessments, user awareness training, server hardening and general consulting with clients.
In 2013 I took on a new adventure to focus 100% on information security. There’s a ton to learn, so I wanted to write it all down in a blog format and share with others. However, I’m a family man too, and didn’t want this project to offset the work/family balance.
So I thought a podcast might fill in the gaps for stuff I can’t - or don’t have time to - write out in full form. I always loved the idea of a podcast, but the good ones are usually in a longer format, and I knew I didn’t have time for that either. I was inspired by the format of the 10 Minute Podcast and figured if it can work for comedy, maybe it can work for information security!
Thus, the 7 Minute Security blog and its child podcast was born.
When I’m not doing infosec stuff, I'm hanging out with my family or singing with Sweet Surrender.
