Muneeb Imran Shaikh on "Cyber Threat Intelligence" 

In this podcast episode, Thomas and Randy sit down with Certified Expert, Muneeb Imran Shaikh, to discuss everything from defining security posture, to Muneeb's favorite cricket teams. The crew breaks down major challenges that security leadership can face on a day-to-day basis, and then discusses how to mitigate that risk. Later, Muneeb breaks down how to understand the value of the assets in your company that could be at risk, and the potential threat and fallout of a cyber attack on our financial systems.

EE Certified Expert, James Bunch, is a Systems Engineer for CNR Technologies in the Metro Atlanta area, and is experienced in IT Administration, Networking, and Desktops. In this episode, Thomas and Randy dive into James' journey from IT novice to expert in his field. Before delving into his IT experience, James gives Randy and Thomas a rundown of the ins and outs of pro gaming and Twitch streaming. Later, he explains how his passion for gaming and tinkering with computers led to his pursuit of a career in IT. He explains how in lieu of a more traditional approach, he turned to Experts Exchange for his tech education. The group goes on to discuss how the true benefit of Experts Exchange isn't simply solutions, but a full community experience.
