In our news segments, we often discuss and explore the ever-expanding vendor landscape. Funding rounds are getting huge, we're seeing upwards of 40 acquisitions each month - there's a lot of money and activity in the enterprise cybersecurity market. This is going to be a quarterly, recurring segment, in which we bring on a VC to provide an investor's point-of-view on all this activity. It's hard to imagine a better investor to join us than Will Lin, co-founder of Forgepoint, one of the few VC firms that exclusively invests in cybersecurity startups!

Use of encryption is on the rise: both by cyber defenders and the attackers they’re tasked to defend against. Encryption has reached near-full adoption by internal teams hoping to implement stronger security and privacy practices. Simultaneously, attackers are using the same mechanisms to hide their malicious activity from the defender’s line of sight. ExtraHop’s Jamie Moles, Senior Technical Marketing Manager joins Enterprise Security Weekly to discuss the various techniques attackers are using to cover their tracks using encryption, addresses common objections about decryption, and makes the case for decryption as a path toward faster, more confident defense. Jamie shares a demonstration of how the ExtraHop Reveal(x) network detection and response platform securely decrypts network traffic in order to successfully halt a breach in progress.

A big part of preparing for Security Weekly news segments is reading press releases. Most of us also get emails whenever a cybersecurity vendor sends out a press release. Too many are frivolous, full of hyperbole, or just plain unreadable. We talk about why so many press releases are like this (there are legit reasons!) and how they could be improved.

What's wrong with press releases?

1. Frivolous Press Releases

2. Unintelligible Press Releases

3. Bending the Truth

4. Excessive hyperbole; death by adjective

5. FUD

Why are they like this?

1. Feeding the SEO beast

2. Written by committee

3. Need to appear successful

4. Need to show growth/progress

5. Need to differentiate from the competition

6. "if it bleeds it leads"

Fixing Press Releases

- When should you put out a press release?

- What should go into a press release?

- How should you write a press release?

Once again, it is Cybersecurity awareness month and we'll be talking with Ryan Kalember about the latest threats and other activities he and Proofpoint have going on this month. When it comes to threats, some tactics aren't changing, though they're still effective. There are some notable shifts though:

- Crews using Office 365 for lateral movement

- FIN7 reborn

- A sudden interest in exploits

- Increased patience and increased focus on the individual as the key to an attack

- SMB attacks look very different from large enterprise campaigns

Sales teams are under more pressure than ever to locate and bring in new customers. The methods they use can range from clever to questionable. While some of the more ethically questionable methods can produce results, we wonder: do vendors realize what these methods could be potentially costing them? Richard Reinders joins us today to discuss how he handles one of the toughest challenges any security leader will have to face: interacting with vendors.

Identity Detection and Response (IDR) is a new security category that focuses on protecting credentials, privileges, cloud entitlements, and the systems that manage them across endpoints, Active Directory, and the Cloud through visibility and early detection of attacks targeting identities. Attackers consider enterprise identities as high-value targets and attempt to compromise them early in the attack to access the network and gain privileges to essential production assets. Current identity security focuses on safeguarding privileged credentials in PAM solutions or securing the authentication process with MFA and IAM solutions, but these measures leave gaps that attackers can exploit. While current security solutions like Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR), Extended Detection and Response (XDR), Network Detection and Response (NDR), and others provide specific functions for defending the network, they do not focus on identities. EDR focuses on preventing the initial compromise, while XDR and NDR try to detect attacks as they expand from the beachhead. Attacks targeting enterprise identities can evade detection from these security controls, but IDR solutions can bridge these detection gaps to identify such attacks. Join Joseph Salazar from Attivo Networks as he discusses the importance of IDR to modern enterprise security.
