This “Secure in Mind” podcast episode sees Nick Kelly speak with Neil Walsh, The United Nations Global Chief of Anti-Terrorism, Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Cybercrime. In what is at times a deeply shocking, heart-wrenching discussion that pulls the cyber covers of the darknet back from the depravity that lurks underneath, the conversation explores how and why all the above elements in Neil’s job title are so interconnected and related in the modern day.
Cybercrime, terrorism, laundering: the darkest elements the world over
This was an incredible conversation with an incredible person who has tirelessly worked in the fight against some of the darkest elements the world over, and who continues to do so by supporting, training and empowering countries throughout the world in their struggle.
So, plug in and listen to a rich tapestry of tales from the front-line that include meetings with the pope, bomb blasts and trying to take down bad guys.
NOTE: excuse the slight white noise during the recording – cables are misbehaving but we mostly got away with it.

The Secure in Mind project
Our mission is to greatly increase and encourage community discussion about technological and ethical issues that have done, are and will impact society on a global scale.
There is a longstanding and distinct disconnect between the way information is packaged and presented to the public and the effectiveness of this presentation in terms of generating informed, considered debate.
If we can take complex, important topics and present them, as best we can, in a manner that can interests people from outside the speciality, then we have surpassed our expectations.
