Today Laura and Kevin are joined by Philippe Humeau to chat about crowdsourcing cyber security. They discuss the pros and cons of opensource software for cyber security, the consensus algorithm, Captain America Syndrome, the true scale of Cyber Crime, whether being hacked boils down to a budget problem, renting alpacas, hugging alpacas, alpaca clothing and then even debate what foreign language Laura needs to learn in 2024!Philippe Humeau is an IT security engineer and founder of CrowdSec. He is from Paris, France. He founded his first company at the same time and quickly oriented it towards penetration testing and high-security hosting. He was also deeply involved in Magento’s community creation & animation in France and versed in eCommerce (wrote 4 books on the topic).

In 2020, he founded CrowdSec, a company editing an eponymous open-source and collaborative IPS, leveraging both IP behavior & reputation to create a community and tackle the mass scale hacking problem. His crushes will forever be IT security, DevSecOps, and entrepreneurship.
