1. Relations Between Buyers and Sellers of Security Products – David Spark – BSW #171

The concept of the CISO/Security Vendor Relationship Series started more than two years ago when relations between security vendors and practitioners appeared very strained. Since we started producing our podcasts more than a year and a half ago, anecdotally, we're seeing a lot of improvement. But, there are still plenty of issues like what we saw more than two years ago.

David Spark is the producer of the CISO Series, a media channel of blogs, podcasts, and videos all on the cybersecurity ecosystem. Just over a year old, the CISO Series has hit a nerve in the InfoSec industry as it has acted as a much needed mouthpiece for the dysfunctional yet much needed relationship between buyers and sellers of security products. Spark is a veteran tech journalist and producer who has appeared in more than 40 media outlets. He is also the owner of Spark Media Solutions, a B2B content marketing agency for the tech industry.
