Zero-Trust is Meaningless if Your Cryptography is Flakey - Vincent Berk - ESW #349

Legacy systems are riddled with outdated and unreliable cryptographic standards. So much so that recent proprietary research found 61 percent of the traffic was unencrypted, and up to 80% of encrypted network traffic has some defeatable flaw in its encryption No longer can enterprises take their cryptography for granted, rarely evaluated or checked. Knowing when, where and what type of cryptography is used throughout the enterprise and by which applications is critical to your overall security policy, zero-trust approach, and risk management strategy. After all, zero-trust is meaningless if your cryptography isn't working.

You Can’t Defend What You Can’t Define - Sergey Bratus - PSW #816

As a computer-smitten middle-schooler in the former Soviet Union in the 1970s, to his current and prominent role in the cybersecurity research community, Bratus aims to render the increasingly prevalent and perilous software, hardware, and networks in our lives much safer to use. His fascination with computer security started for real in the 1990s as a mathematics graduate student when a computer he was programming and responsible for at Northeastern University in Boston was taken over by a hacker. That experience set him on his life’s mission to learn as much as he can about the vulnerabilities of software and hardware with the goal of learning how to best minimize or eliminate those vulnerabilities. Noting his embrace of the hacker community for its deep and innovative expertise in this context, Bratus’s portfolio at DARPA could help reduce or entirely remove even some of the most stealthy and unexpected vulnerabilities that reside in software and its logical, computational, and m

The Elephant in the Pipeline: Securing the Wild, Untamed Software Supply Chain - Pete Morgan - ESW #348

We've seen general users targeted with phishing, financial employees targeted for BEC scams, and engineers targeted for access to infrastructure. The truly scary attacks, however, are the indirect ones that are automated. The threats that come in via software updates, or trusted connections with third parties. The software supply chain is both absolutely essential, and fragile. A single developer pulling a tiny library out of NPM can cause chaos. A popular open source project changing hands could instantly give access to millions of systems. Every day, a new app store or component repository pops up and becomes critical to maintaining infrastructure. In this interview, we'll chat with Pete Morgan about how these risks can be managed and mitigated. Segment Resources: https://blog.phylum.io/q3-2023-evolution-of-software-supply-

What Smart CISOs and Mature Orgs Get That Others Don’t About Cyber Compliance - Matt Coose - PSW #814

Matt Coose is the founder and CEO of cybersecurity compliance firm Qmulos, previously the director of Federal Network Security for the National Cyber Security Division of the (DHS). CISOs carry the ultimate burden and weight of compliance and reporting and are often the last buck. Says Coose, best-of-breed is better described as best-to-bleed-the-budget: it’s a bottom-up, tech-first, reactive approach for acquiring technology as opposed to managing risk. Choose shares his top considerations below for how CISOs can navigate the crowded market of cybersecurity tools when cost is highly scrutinized, but regulations keep growing. Platforms are what every vendor dreams of being called, but no platform does it all, says Coose. Coose shares what smart CISOs and mature organizations understand, that others don’t: • There’s no “buying their way out of security issues or into a better risk posture.” They understand the need to evolve to a top-down, risk-driven, inh

Creating Trust in Biometric Authentication for Identity Verification - Sabrina Gross - ESW #346

The general public has varied opinions of biometric authentication, and an increasingly reluctant relationship with it, as more and more facial recognition is forced upon us (especially those of us that travel frequently). Facial recognition doesn't work for everyone, so what other options do we have? In this interview, we'll explore accessibility in identity verification and the viability of voice-based authentication. How big an issue are AI-powered voice imposters? How will companies like Veridas combat these threats? We'll ask all these questions and more in this ESW interview. On this segment, we talk a lot about AI, new technologies, and the future from a personal and consumer standpoint. Not a lot of enterprise-relevant stuff in the news today, but consumer products and AI will have a HUGE long-term impact, so that's how we're justifying today's topical focus ;) Visit https://www

GenAI Threats and Concerns, Building a Security Business Around Open Source - Ev Kontsevoy, Greg Notch - ESW #345

GenAI hype is still at peak levels, but clearly some of the hopes and dreams pinned on it will fail, while other use cases we haven't even imagined will become commonplace. Greg Notch joins us to share his thoughts on what security leaders and the general public should be more or less worried about when it comes to GenAI. Many founders and early stage startups closely guard product details and information about their roadmap and go-to-market plan. Is it a bad idea then to build a company based around an open source project? Not at all, according to Ev Kontsevoy, whose company Teleport has done just that. Building a security vendor around open source isn't a magic formula for success, however, so we'll discuss the pros and cons of this approach.

However, many businesses lack visibility into who has access to what data and when, especially in these cloud solutions. How should organizations reconcile the disconnect between data access and data security? Mike Scott, CISO at Immuta, joins Business Security Weekly to discuss best practices for moving sensitive data into the cloud, including data access and data security. If you're moving data into the cloud, listen in to learn how best to protect that data.

MegatronAL on Kicking in the Door to Cybersecurity - Angela Marafino - ESW Vault

I once told my college advisor that I wanted to double major in computer science and jazz performance. She laughed at me. Instead, I jumped into a career in IT and played jazz - without a degree in either. Turns out, that was fine - the industry valued experience and results over academic achievement. Today's guest has two degrees, one in fine arts, one in pre-law, and that's also fine. If there's anything I've learned in InfoSec, it's the mind that matters most, less so the degrees or certs on your wall. Angela Marafino gets cybersecurity and understands what makes it tick. Using this knowledge, she has built a personal brand, network, and career in an impressively short time. She is simultaneously mentor and mentee. Today, we'll explore Angela's path into the industry as well as some of her views on challenges, like imposter syndrome. https://hbr.org/20

Cyber Risk Management Starts with Risk Quantification - Padraic O'Reilly - BSW #332

Cyber has been an historically hermetic practice. A dark art. Full of mysteries and presided over by magicians both good and bad. This is a bit of an exaggeration, yet there is some truth to it. Many in our industry knew that the SEC was evaluating the role that cyber risk management and incident disclosure plays in the pricing mechanism for an equity. Many of the participants in GRC, IRM, and Cyber Risk anticipated this before the SEC had even proposed such rules. Boards, C-Suites, and Information security teams within publicly traded companies brought it up occasionally in the year preceding its adoption. Lawyers on K Street actively advocated in the press against enacting such rules, and there is still a hearty back and forth concerning the merits of SEC involvement in cyber risk. But more transparency is a very welcome development. For investors, it’s essential. Industry veterans say that this development hearkens back to Sarbanes Oxley, which had very big implications fo

Non-profits need security too & Cybercrime is booming - Keith Jarvis, Kelley Misata - ESW #341

While non-profit doesn't mean "no budget" when it comes to cybersecurity, a lot of smaller to mid-sized non-profits operate on a shoestring, with little to no money for cybersecurity talent or spending. This is where Sightline Security steps in. Sightline's founder and CEO, Kelley Misata joins us today to explain how her own non-profit helps other non-profits improve their cybersecurity posture. As with any category of trends, the success rate of cybercrime ebbs and flows. As Russia seems be a safe haven for cybercriminals, it seemed for a while that the war in Ukraine might disrupt this activity. It did, but only for a short while.

This year we've talked about vulns, clouds, breaches, presentations, and all the variations of Dev, Sec, and Ops.

1% Leadership - Andy Ellis - BSW #329

Most leadership books suffer from one of two critical failures (and sometimes both). The book might be a hagiography: telling you the biography of some amazing leaders, pretending there is one secret trick that will let you emulate that leader. Or the lesson of book should have been written as a tweet: in 280 characters you could have learned one lesson, but instead you have to fight through 300 pages of obfuscation to decipher the lesson. 1% Leadership is the antidote to these approaches. There is no secret. Instead, 1% Leadership provides 54 distinct lessons on leadership, that apply to individuals, teams, and organizations. Each lesson is presented in a self-contained chapter, averaging under 800 words. The lessons are summarized in a tweet-length pithy summary, which is also the chapter title.

Aidan Holland, Kelly Shortridge - ESW #339

Today, we discuss the state of attack surface across the Internet. We've known for decades now that putting an insecure service on the public Internet is a recipe for disaster, often within minutes. How has this knowledge changed the publicly accessible Internet? We find out when we talk to Censys's Aidan Holland today. We've reached an inflection point in security. There are a handful of organizations regularly and successfully stopping cyber attacks. Most companies haven't gotten there, however. What separates these two groups? Why does it seem like we're still failing as an industry, despite seeming to collectively have all the tools, intel, and budget we've asked for? Kelly Shortridge has studied this problem in depth.

There is little to no organization of data within companies in 2023. We're all guilty of this at some level. The download folders and desktops on our personal machines are a mess. File servers, and cloud storage services are a mess. In Microsoft's recent data leak, AI researchers even had PC backups stored along side machine learning models for whatever reason.

Then in a pre-recorded segment: Sonar Vulnerability Researchers Thomas Chauchefoin and Paul Gerste conducted research on the security of Visual Studio Code — the most popular code editor out there — which was presented at DEF CON 31 in August. The pair uncovered a few ways for attackers to gain code execution on a victim's computer if they clicked on a specially crafted link or opened a malicious folder in Visual Studio Code, bypassing existing mitigations like Workspace Trust. Developers tend to trust their IDEs and do not expect such security issues to exist. As developers have access to source code and production systems, they make for very interesting targets for threat actors.

Shifting Focus to Make DevSecOps Successful - Janet Worthington - ASW #258

What if all these recommendations to shift left were more about shifting focus? It's all too easy to become preoccupied with vulns, whether figuring out how to find them earlier in the SDLC or spending time fixing them within specific number of days. Successful DevSecOps approaches can be so much more than just vulns and so much more than just tools. Sure, tools are useful for identifying known vulns in dependencies and new vulns in code, but teams that emphasize people and culture will find it easier to shift their attention to the security of their product and creating secure designs.

Digital Transformation Breaks Risk Management - Chris Morales - BSW #323

CEOs and boards struggle with their digital transformation process. Does their operations hinder or align with business initiatives? Has their security operations scaled to meet the data and digital demands to protect against business risk? In today’s episode, we’re talking to Chris Morales, CISO at Netenrich, who’ll provide compelling insights towards security transformation. Security organizations all face similar security challenges of too much data, siloed teams, underperforming legacy tools, and time-consuming and laborious threat investigation work. We’ll discuss the approach enterprises need to consider in advancing their security maturity. It’s one that’s data-driven, adaptive, and predictive.

Lessons From the Last Year's Breaches, ISW Interviews - ESW #334

In this segment, we'll explore some of the most useful lessons and interesting insights to come out of the last year's worth of breaches and data leaks! We'll explain why we will NOT be covering MGM in this segment. The breaches we will be covering include: - Microsoft AI Research Data Leak - Microsoft/Storm-0558 - CommutAir - Riot Games - Lastpass - CircleCI - RackSpace - Drizly (yes, this breach is older, but the full story just wrapped a year ago!) On this week's news segment, we go down a bit of a rabbit hole on data lakes and have a GREAT conversation about where security data wrangling might or might not go in the future. We also discuss Nord Security's funding and $3B valuation, try to figure out what Synqly is doing, and discuss IronNet's demise.

Creating Presentations and Training That Engage an Audience - Lina Lau - ASW #257

Communication is a skill that doesn't appear on top 10 lists, rarely appears as a conference topic, and doesn't appear enough on job requirements. Yet communication is one of the critical ways that security teams influence developers, convey risk, and share knowledge with others. Even our own Security Weekly site falls a little short with only a podcast category for "Training" instead of more options around communication and collaboration. Lina shares her experience presenting to executives and boards in high-stress situations, as well as training incident responders on real-world scenarios.

Risk Management in the Cloud Starts with Identities - Eric Kedrosky - BSW #322

As we move more infrastructure into the cloud, the traditional concepts of risk start to change. It's no longer just about networks and servers, but also needs to address identities and not just human identities. Cloud infrastructure introduces additional identity types that need to be addressed as part of your risk management program. Eric Kedrosky, CISO at Sonrai Security, joins us to discuss how to think differently about risk in the cloud.

Tomer Bar, Raghu Nandakumara, Erik Huckle - ESW #330

Having direct visibility into your access data is crucial for two reasons: 1. Simplifying audit preparation and 2. Managing progress of your identity program to ensure peak performance. Internal auditors and compliance managers need easy access to granular data points to understand and demonstrate compliance to external agencies. Gaining access to real time data creates a great deal of autonomy for audit and identity teams to be able to delve deep into their identity programs and prove compliance. However, making the data available even internally can put organizations at risk for data leaks and data policy violations. Erik will outline how companies can gain access to their current identity search and dashboard data and be able to query in their preferred BI tool based on their own data privacy policies and business needs, significantly reducing risk.   This segment is sponsored by SailPoint.

The metaverse is an evolving storytelling environment in which humans have congregated for millennia to experience alternate, immersive, and simulated realities, with or without technology. Storytelling is designed to influence mental and physical perceptions suiting the purposes of the content creators. Metawar is the art of applying science to create and defend against the influence of alternate realities in the metaverse. What if we can longer rely on our senses to determine what is real and what is fiction? Winn's research into Metawar initially focused on metaversal technologies. Unexpectedly, it morphed into an intensely personal experience, triggering Winn's own Metanoia, which had a profound impact on the entire Metawar Thesis.

Tackling the Perennial Problem of Device Management, News, BlackHat Interviews - Jason Meller - ESW #329

Incredibly, the seemingly simple task of managing corporate-owned devices is still a struggle for most organizations in 2023. Maybe best MDM for Mac doesn't work with Windows, or the best MDM for Windows doesn't work with Mac. Maybe neither have Linux support. Perhaps they don't provide enough insight into the endpoint, or control over it. Whatever the case, security leaders never seem satisfied with their MDM solution and are always investigating new ones. Now, Kolide has stepped in with a unique approach to device management, combining the flexibility and industry support for OSQuery and built to integrate with IdP giant Okta.

Deciphering The National Cyber Workforce and Education Strategy - Dr. José-Marie Griffiths - BSW #315

On July 31st, 2023, the Biden administration released a national strategy addressing cyber workforce shortages, calling long-standing vacancies a national security imperative. The National Cyber Workforce and Education Strategy focuses on four major pillars: equipping every American with cyber skills, transforming cyber education, expanding and enhancing the national cyber workforce and strengthening the federal cyber workforce. The strategy relies heavily on non-governmental and private sector entities to provide funding, internship and apprenticeship programs to increase the number of workers with cybersecurity skills. One of those entities referenced in the strategy is Dakota State University. Dr. José-Marie Griffiths joins us to discuss education's role in the strategy, but offers other insights, including: - immigration policies and how it limits the current cyber workforce, - diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives and the reduction of women in the cyber workforce, and -

Surging Email Impersonation Threats, Creating Online Kids' Safety Community - Fareedah Shaheed, John Wilson - ESW #326

While malware and ransomware tend to dominate cybersecurity headlines, Fortra’s research shows that nearly 99% of email threats reaching corporate inboxes utilize impersonation rather than malware. Email impersonation is a key component of credential phishing, advance fee fraud, hybrid vishing, and business email compromise schemes. Because email impersonation scams rely on social engineering rather than technology, the barrier to entry for an aspiring cybercriminal is almost non-existent. In this segment, we’ll explore strategies for defending against email impersonation.

How to Effectively Embrace and Protect Generative AI Tools, Models, & Data - Randy Lariar - BSW #314

Some organizations are banning ChatGPT and other generative AI models out of fear of the risks they could introduce. While this is understandable, the reality is generative AI is accelerating so fast that, very soon, banning it in the workplace will be like blocking employee access to their web browser.

The traditional concept of the CISO may literally be 'too much', according to Nathan Case. It's based on systems of control and unrealistic assumptions that don't survive contact with real life.

Today, we talk to Juliet about what's wrong with security programs today and what security leaders should be doing to fix them. We'll discuss how security programs can look rosy... until the incident hits, and the true posture of the organization is laid bare. How can CISOs still look good and maintain the org's trust under the worst of circumstances? In this interview, Jules will tell us how. Zero Trust is an imperfect concept and is often impractical to deploy comprehensively at scale, but that doesn't mean it can't do any good.

Say Easy, Do Hard - BSW #312

Less than 50% of the Fortune 500 have a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) or Chief Security Officer (CSO) listed on their executive team. Why is that? Is this role not considered an executive position? In part 1, we debate the role of the CISO/CSO and whether it is or is NOT and executive position. We've made a lot of progress over the last 20+ years, but has the role peaked? Will the role continue to get a seat at the table as a C-level executive or will it atrophy back to a VP or Director role? If the CISO/CSO is still an executive position, then what are the requirements of this role? In part 2, we debate the requirements of the CISO/CSO role and expectations of the organization. To be a true executive role, the CISO/CSO needs to have the decision making authority with the same protections of other officers. Will they get it? We debate.

SIEM Rules - Eric Capuano, Tim MalcomVetter - ESW #323

InfoSec might have a hoarding problem, but it’s easy to understand why. It’s almost impossible to know what logs you’re doing to need, when you’re going to need them, or for what reason. SIEM vendors have taken advantage of these InfoSec data FOMO tendencies, however, and are making a killing charging a premium for storage - even when the storage in question is your own on-prem hardware. There ARE alternatives, however, but it seems most folks aren’t aware of this. In this interview with Eric Capuano, we’ll discuss both the practical and economic shortcomings of the traditional SIEM model. We’ll discuss the challenges of various SIEM use cases. Most importantly, we’ll discuss the new models actively replacing them.

The Golden Age of Email Security - Jess Burn - BSW #311

A golden age is a time of great achievement in a society or industry — a time of innovation and the furthering of new ideas via new mediums or technological advancements. Email security is now entering a golden age after stagnating for the better part of a decade. Is it time to celebrate? Customers have more choice than ever when it comes to protecting how employees, customers, and partners communicate and collaborate. Often, those customers are choosing more than one email security partner in a layered or multilayer approach to protection, as it provides greater efficacy — and peace of mind. But is that sustainable in a consolidating market? Jess Burn, Senior Analyst from Forrester Research, joins us to discuss the results of The Forrester Wave on Enterprise Email Security for Q2 2023.

Unveiling DSPM & the Future of Cloud Data Security: State of IoT in 2023 - Dan Benjamin, Paddy Harrington - ESW #322

Securing data is hard. Business stops when data flows are hindered, stopped, sometimes even slowed. Placing controls around data traditionally leads to more friction and less productivity.

How Good CISOs Build Bad Security Programs - Juliet Okafor - ESW Vault

Yet, over and over again I meet Security Leaders that thrive on designing security fiefdoms with large moats, and one bridge that they roll down only when they intend to roll out a new technology, initiative or need budget authority. There is no amount of authority or power that can provided to a CISO that makes he or she immunized against the need for communication, collaboration and diplomacy with peers, users and Senior Executives.   Visit https://www.securityweekly.com/esw for all the latest episodes!

Doing Application Security Right - Farshad Abasi - ASW VAULT

Check out this interview from the ASW VAULT, hand picked by main host Mike Shema! This segment was originally published on March 14, 2022. Cybersecurity is a large and often complex domain, traditionally focused on the infrastructure and general information security, with little or no attention to Application Security. Security providers usually tack-on AppSec services to their existing menu of offering without understanding the domain, and their team of professionals have little or no experience with software development or inner workings of modern application architectures. As the world turns Digital at a rapid pace accelerated by the recent pandemic, applications become common place in our lives, providing attackers more opportunities to exploit these poorly protected applications. As such, it is important to know what is actually required to build and run software securely, and how to do application security right. Segment Resources: https://forwardsecurity.c

On this edition of the ESW news, we're all over the place! Funding and acquisitions are a little sad right now, but AI and TikTok bans raise our spirits. The hosts are split on feelings about the new .zip gTLD, there's a new standard for scoring an "AI Influence Level" (AIL), and lessons learned from Joe Sullivan's case and other Uber breaches. Also, don't miss the new AI tool DragGAN, which enables near magical levels of ease when manipulating photos.   What's even real anymore? We might not be able to tell for long... The reality is no organization is insusceptible to a breach – and security teams, alongside the C-suite, should prepare now to make the response more seamless once a crisis does happen. Based on his experience working 1:1 with security leaders in the private and public sectors, Jon Check, executive director of Cyber Protection Solutions at Raytheon Intelligence & Space, will share the critical steps organizations must take to best prepare for a security

ASW #242 - Ten Things I Hate About Lists

The OWASP Top 10 dates back to 2003, when appsec was just settling on terms like cross-site scripting and SQL injection. It's a list that everyone knows about and everyone talks about. But is it still the right model for modern appsec awareness? What if we put that attention and effort elsewhere? Maybe we could have secure defaults instead. Or linters and build tools that point out these flaws. We'll talk about top 10 lists, what we like about them, what we don't like, and what we'd like to see replace them. We'll also test our hosts' knowledge of just how many top 10 lists are out there.   Segment resources: [OWASP Top 10:2021](https://owasp.org/Top10/)  [OWASP API Security Project](https://owasp.org/www-project-api-security/) [OWASP Top 10 Mobile Risks](<a href= "https://github.com/OWASP/www-project-mobile-top-10/blob/master/2016-risks/in

This week, we discuss fundings, acquisitions (TWO DSPM exits!), the ongoing market downturn/weirdness, and surprise - LLM-based AIs! We spend a fair amount of time talking about the importance of breach transparency - we need to be able to learn from others' failures to improve our own defenses. We also discuss the inevitable 'One App To Rule them All' that will serve as an all-knowing personal assistant. It will integrate with all our comms, calendars, and notes, which will be scary and fraught with privacy and security issues. But Tyler and Adrian still yearn for it, as their pre-frontal cortexes become increasingly dulled by scotch and beer.   Enterprises are struggling to manage and reduce their organizational attack surface, especially with a shortage of skilled staff.

Application security in the cloud is a crucial aspect of protecting data and preventing unauthorized access to applications hosted on cloud platforms. As cloud computing becomes more prevalent, ensuring the security of applications has become a top priority for organizations. This is because cloud environments present unique security challenges, such as shared resources, multi-tenancy, and a lack of physical control. Therefore, it is essential to implement security measures that are specific to cloud-based applications.

BSW #299 - Melissa Bischoping

We often see security as a thing that has definitive check boxes, end states and deliverables. Audits "end" and then start again, but if you are looking at security as a noun -- as in, a thing that gets done, you are falling short. Security must be a verb. You DO security, you do not HAVE security. Security weaves through every layer and goes beyond the IT assets or codebase. This includes: Guerrilla marketing of gaining end-user buy-in for initiatives Iterative tuning of your data sources Active engagement with real-time feedback from the user base and technical teams Threat- and risk-informed decisions need to be capable of adapting when things get turned upside down. You need to create a culture and the associated processes to look at security like you do. Security teams and roadmaps are designed to look (often myopically) at specific "deliverables" and not so much at the vital signs of the security ecosystem in any given moment (and what that looks like OVER TIME, not at a momen

BSW #295 - ChatGPT: Cybersecurity's Savior or Devil?

Lots of press lately regarding ChatGPT and its impact on cybesecurity. Some say it will help us fight adversaries, while others say it will only make adversaries more sophisticated. Lot's of FUD on both sides of the discussion. BSW hosts debate the pros and cons of ChatGPT (and other AI) to truly understand its impact and what we, as security leaders, need to know.

Throwback Episode - ESW #293

It's another holiday week, so enjoy this episode from the ESW archives!   The cloud and SaaS were supposed to make things easier, simpler, more scalable. Arguably, they _have_ done all those things, but traditional, legacy networks linger. Migrations are messy and take time. Nearly everything is encrypted in transit by default. Today, we interview Marty Roesch, the creator of Snort and founder of SourceFire, to discuss how things have changed and what defenders can do to catch up and restore some order to the madness. We'll step through some history along the way - listeners might be surprised at how much our current situation mirrors the reasons behind why Marty created Snort in the first place.

Throwback Episode - ASW #178

It's another holiday week, so enjoy this episode from our archives! What does a collaborative approach to security testing look like? What does it take to tackle an entire attack class as opposed to fixing a bunch of bugs? If we can shift from vulnerability mitigation to vulnerability elimination, then appsec would be able to demonstrate some significant wins -- and they need a partnership with DevOps teams in order to do this successfully. Log4j has more updates and more vulns (but probably not more heartburn...), revisiting outages and whether availability has made it into your threat models, deep dive into hardware security, another data point on bug bounty awards, and looking at risk topics for the next year.

Organizations today operate under the constant looming threat of cyber attacks. While reactive cybersecurity measures will help organizations respond to past and present threats, offensive measures are the only chance to get ahead of attackers and beat them to the punch. There is now a greater call for offensive solutions like penetration testing and red teaming to evaluate environments so security gaps can be identified and closed before a breach. Join us as we discuss how these solutions work both independently and together, as well as practical ways organizations can build or mature an offensive security strategy.  Segment Resources:  https://www.coresecurity.com/resources/videos/when-use-pen-testing-red-teaming-or-both?code=cmp-0000011540&ls=717710006&utm_source=hubspo

Most of the myths and lies in InfoSec take hold because they seem correct or sound logical. Similar cognitive biases make it possible for even the most preposterous conspiracy theories to become commonly accepted in some groups. This is a talk about the importance of critical thinking and checking sources in InfoSec. Our industry is relatively new and constantly changing. Too often, we operate more off faith and hope than fact or results. Exhausted and overworked defenders often don't have the time to seek direct evidence for claims, question sources, or test theories for themselves.

There's an interesting connection between GreyNoise's product, founder, and principles. While building a product that filtered out the noise that wastes most security operations teams' time, Andrew was dead set against building a startup that resembled the typical security startup.

Traditional/legacy ways to grant access is not fit for purpose of protecting this new way of delivering products and services. - Customers are demanding better digital experiences. To maintain a competitive edge and drive brand loyalty businesses need to provide great online experiences. - Standards (such as OAuth and OpenID Connect) are important to ensure high-security levels. Also enables scalability and helps future-proof your infrastructure. For example in the financial sector, these standards play a key role in the drive toward open banking. - A modern architecture is a zero trust architecture.

How can security teams do a better job of protecting Web3 apps?

Cybersecurity is now battling a human problem just as much, if not more, than a technical one. According to Verizon’s 2021 Data Breach Security Report, 85% of successful cyberattacks now involve a human element. Combine that with the fact that even the very best technology can only thwart about 93% of attacks and that leaves a large hole in an organization’s basic security hygiene. This has led to a growing demand for ongoing educational programs that rely on behavioral science to measure and manage cybersecurity risk as a distinctly different solution from generic, one-size-fits-all training programs.   In the enterprise security news, SentinelOne and Crowdstrike reinvest in the security market, Malwarebytes raises $100M, Ox Security raises a $34M Seed round???

New fourth-annual research report analyzes ransomware attack patterns that occurred between August 2021 and July 2022 In the past 12 months, Barracuda researchers identified and analyzed 106 highly publicized ransomware attacks and found the dominant targets are still five key industries: education, municipalities, healthcare, infrastructure, and financial. Researchers also saw a spike in the number of service providers that have been hit with a ransomware attack. The volume of ransomware threats detected spiked between January and June of this year to more than 1.2 million per month. Most ransomware attacks don’t make headlines, though. Many victims choose not to disclose when they get hit, and the attacks are often sophisticated and extremely hard to handle for small businesses. To get a closer look at how ransomware is affecting smaller businesses, the report details three examples that researchers have seen through Barracuda SOC-as-a-Service, the anatomy of each attack, and the

PSW #755 - Thomas Kinsella

Analyst burnout and the talent shortage are creating environments where teams are stressed out, overwhelmed, and frustrated. Security Operations managers (or anyone managing teams of security analysts) must empower their analysts with solutions that can make them more effective at their job. Thomas Kinsella joins to discuss why No-code automation is the ultimate solution to do that! Then, in the Security News: you liked the browser so much we put a browser in your browser, hackers are using sock puppets, the patch that kills performance, detect eavesdroppers, no more passwords, one-click account hijack thanks to JavaScript, the return of Shakata Ga Nai, GIFShell (or is it jifshell), Lexmark firmware confusion, and searching for a long lost copy of OS/2!

While applications and APIs are developed with cloud in mind, many organizations must rely on a hybrid architecture and edge computing to deliver their services given the high cost of cloud services. However, many organizations lack the right security stack to protect data and applications in these unique environments, or from threats added through reliance on open source code. With today’s attacks coming from automated threats, organizations need to implement tools to mitigate risks that impact the bottom line, brand reputation, and customer experience without slowing development lifecycles.

But in their drive to build security testing into development as early as possible, many organizations are neglecting application security in later phases and losing sight of the big picture. In this talk, Invicti’s Chief Product Officer Sonali Shah discusses the challenges and misunderstandings around shifting left, and provides tips on how organizations can implement web application security program without tradeoffs throughout the whole application security lifecycle.

Krit acquired by GreyNoise, Incident Response in AWS is different, Awesome open source projects for SecOps folks, Tyler Shields can’t wait to talk about Product Led Growth, Forcing open source maintainers to use MFA, Twilio - the breach that keeps on pwning, The US Governments earmarks $15.6 BILLION for cybersecurity and we hear vendors salivating already, & more!   Security training isn't just about anti-phishing and security awareness for employees. When reading through breach details, a similar picture often emerges: the people were there, the tools were in place, but the people didn't know how to use the tools effectively. Every day, security tools catch attacks, but it doesn't matter if a human doesn't notice and tools are in 'monitor only' modes. This segment is sponsored by RangeForce. Visit https://securityweek

In the leadership and communications section, CISO salaries balloon, likely spurred by demand, 4 Steps to Being an Authentic Leader, Keeping Your Team Motivated When the Company Is Struggling, and more!   In order to run a successful SOC, security leaders rely on tools with different strengths to create layers of defense. This has led to a highly siloed industry with over 2,000 vendors, each with their own specific function and who very seldom work together. To gain an advantage on attackers, we need to start seeing cybersecurity as a team sport––united for a shared mission.

In 1995, Craig Newmark started curating a list of San Francisco arts and technology events, which he personally emailed to friends and colleagues. People were soon calling it “Craig’s List.” Most know the rest of the story. But what did that rapid entry into tech entrepreneurship teach him about information security? And how did that lead to a passion for, among other things, cyber philanthropy? SC Media's Jill Aitoro will speak to Newmark about his career, and his own evolution in infosec awareness that came with it.   Among the more challenging phases for a cyber business is transitioning from inspiring startup to successful enterprise, strategically leveraging investment to scale.
