New Host Unknown Video will have risk managers scrambling to justify their jobs
2 February 2016
Host Unknown, the undisputed global leader in information-security based videos made by three random men based out of London has struck again.
Already an established acting team, the group rose up the musical charts with their hit single in 2014, “I’m a C I Double S P“.
The trio’s latest video, ‘Accepted the Risk‘ is already being touted as the greatest infosec music video of the year.
Sole founder Andrew Agnês explained the long gap between songs, “When you smash it out of the park like I did with C I Double S P, you can’t simply rock up and duplicate that. It takes time, and energy. Luckily I’ve got people who back me up. My crew is solid and we can make this happen.”
Backing up Agnês, sole founder Javvad Malik added, “Y’know we wanted to take this old school. Y’know what I’m sayin’? It’s like man – we got APT’s and nation states all up in our faces. But we grew up managing simple risks. That’s the world we know. We can’t just turn our backs on it. So, this is for all them people out there managing risks day in and day out.”
At time of writing, sole founder Thom Langford was unavailable for comment owing to a scheduled nap.
