Is This the Dreadnought Moment? with Dr. Andrew Hammond

About This Episode

Dr. Andrew Hammond, Historian and Curator of the International Spy Museum joins us this week - and let’s be honest he has just about the coolest job out there today! Hammond takes us through the classic period of espionage and the reliance on physical data and spycraft techniques to transport through to the modern day battlefield of cyber intelligence and espionage.

 And he provides insights on the historical throughlines of attacks that haven’t really changed over the centuries, by and large what is being sought is the same it is simply the mechanism by which exploits are executed have evolved. He also lends perspective on the cyber threat landscape ahead, and asks is this the dreadnought moment?
