The No Password Required Podcast is dedicated to introducing and celebrating the practitioners, leaders, researchers, and individuals who are shaping the cybersecurity industry. Join us for an in-depth conversation that explores our guests' personalities, expertise, and the path that led them into cybersecurity. The team also discusses current cyber threats and readiness tips for security professionals and business leaders alike.

Andy Sekela is the Private Sector Coordinator for the FBI Tampa Division, who may just be on a mission to have the world’s coolest resumé. In this episode, Andy joins the No Password Required team to talk about his diverse career path, including his time as an officer on a nuclear submarine, public corruption investigations, and his best “wow, I’m an FBI agent” story. He also explains the FBI's role in investigating cybersecurity breaches, what happens after an IC3 report, and career opportunities at the agency. Jack and Ernie discuss the dark web's recent offer for the sale of 487 million WhatsApp numbers, and how modern businesses handle suspected website scraping.
