LogChat Podcast 3: Anton Chuvakin and Raffy Marty (!) Talk Logs

LogChat Podcast is back again - and now on iTunes as well! Everybody knows that all this world needs is a podcast devoted to logs, logging and log management (as well as SIEM, incident response and other fun related subjects).

And now you have it AGAIN with edition #3 - through the sheer combined genius of our “guest hostRaffael Marty (sorry,  Andrew Hay – please get well soon, the world of logging needs you!) and myself, Anton Chuvakin.

As usual, administrative items first:
  1. So far, we are still not ready with transcribing.  I did try Amazon Mechanical Turk, but it didn't turn to be as inexpensive as people claimed. If you have ideas for a good/inexpensive transcribing service, we are all ears.
  2. We plan for this to happen every three weeks - recorded on Wednesday, posted on Thursday. However, due to our work schedules, irregularities will occur :-)
  3. Please suggest topics to cover as well - even though we are not likely to run out of ideas for a few years. Our topic today is building a business case for log management: justifications for logging, log collection and log review, time/money savings, availability monitoring, logs for incident response AND system troubleshooting, “going beyond compliance”, business case for SIEM vs log management, etc
  4. Any other feedback is HUGELY useful. Is it too long? Too loud? Too rant-y? Too technical? Not enough jokes? Too few mentions of the "cloud"? Feedback please!
And now, in all its glory - the podcast: link to #3 MP3 is here [MP3], RSS feed is here - it is also on iTunes now.

Enjoy THE LogChat!
