The need to properly secure Entra ID tenants has been made pretty obvious this year thanks to a large-scale attack on them by Russia’s SVR intelligence agency. In this interview Andy Robbins from SpecterOps, the maker of Bloodhound Enterprise, talks through how he thinks those attacks actually went down, about how if you’re an o365 customer you’re using Entra ID whether you like it or not, and about how you can lock down your Entra ID tenant.

Risky Biz Soap Box: Why enterprise browsers are good, actually

In this Soap Box edition of the Risky Business podcast Patrick Gray talks to Island’s Bradon Rogers about security-focussed, enterprise browsers. You can use Island to do stuff like grant third parties access to corporate applications on unmanaged devices in a not insane way – that’s a huge pain point for a lot of CISOs, and something that is bringing a lot of new customers through Island’s doors. Obviously for devices you do manage, you can roll Island out as your default enterprise browser. There are a lot of security benefits to doing that.

Risky Biz Soap Box: Why o365 and Google Workspace are a security liability

In this Soap Box podcast Patrick Gray talks to Material Security’s CEO and co-founder Abishek Agrawal about the security problems inherent to modern productivity suites. Does it make sense that threat actors can authenticate to o365 and Workspace accounts and clean them out entirely? Years of mail, years of files? Material Security has built a product that tackles this issue. It can lock up email archives behind MFA challenges, redact PII from inboxes, better control files share via Google Drive and OneDrive, and just generally limit the damage a threat actor can inflict when they compromise a cloud productivity account. Even if you’re not interested in buying a product to tackle this, we think this one is a great listen.

Risky Biz Soap Box: Stairwell will offer platform to researchers

In this edition of the Soap Box we hear from Mike Wiacek and Eric Foster from Stairwell. Stairwell makes a product that collects and analyses every executable file in your environment. You deploy file collectors to your systems and they forward all new files to Stairwell for manual and automated analysis. You can do a lot of really cool analysis once you have all that stuff in the same place. But as you’ll hear, Stairwell is broadening out the use cases for its platform. You don’t want to forward files from every system? You don’t have to. It’s still very useful as an analysis platform. It’s sort of like VirusTotal, but private and with a bunch more bells and whistles. There’s also a bunch of sharing tools in the platform, which gives it a “social network for CTI nerds” flavour.

That means they process a LOT of emails in the hopes of throttling the number of malicious emails that organisations have to deal with, whether that’s malware, phishing or BEC. So, with that in mind, what role could large language models play in email security? Now that the initial ChatGPT hype has died off a little, we spoke with Proofpoint’s VP of cybersecurity strategy Ryan Kalember about large language models and how they’re going to help defenders and attackers alike.

Risky Biz Soap Box: Six degrees of Domain Admin

Today’s soap box is an absolute cracker. We’re talking to Andy Robbins, the principal product architect at SpecterOps and one of the three original creators of the original open source version of Bloodhound. If you don’t know what Bloodhound is, it’s a tool that grabs Active Directory information and turns it into a navigable graph. So if you’re an attacker you land on a network, enumerate directory information, and then map out a path to domain admin. Bloodhound has been extremely popular with red teamers for years – to the point that it’s just a standard tool in the red team toolkit. But the team behind Bloodhound is now turning their attention to making Bloodhound a defensive tool as well as an offensive tool.

Risky Biz Soap Box: HD Moore on taking Rumble to the cloud

Today’s Soap Box guest is an industry legend – Metasploit creator HD Moore. He’s here to tell us more about what’s happening with his latest creation, Rumble Network Discovery. If you’re not familiar with Rumble, well, you should be. It’s a network scanner that you just set loose and it will go and find all the devices on your network. It has a freaky ability to see around corners, finding devices it can’t even connect to directly because HD and his team have done some really crazy work on pulling device information out of obscure protocol queries and things like that.
