Welcome to the StoryCorps @ RSAC podcast series! Every month we'll be featuring a different conversation between cybersecurity professionals about their lives, the industry and the future of cybersecurity.

This month's conversation features friends and colleagues Wade Baker and Jay Jacobs. Baker, now Vice President, Strategy and Risk Analytics at ThreatConnect, is the creator of the Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report. Jacobs is the Sr. Data Scientist at BitSight Technologies. Prior to joining BitSight, Jay spent four years as the Lead Data Analyst on the Verizon DBIR.

What can we learn from data? 

Baker and Jacobs talk about the ways in which challenging assumptions--by looking at data--can change the way we see the world. 

This podcast was produced by RSA Conference with interviews recorded by StoryCorps, a national non-profit whose mission is to provide Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share and preserve the stories of our lives: www.storycorps.org.
