In our final security weekly segment of the year, we're wrapping up by reminiscing about 2021's biggest, craziest, and most interesting stories. We'll chat about our favorite interviews of the year. Finally, we're sharing our hopes for 2022. What could make it better? Will it be the year we break free from ransomware? Will cyber insurance providers drop all their policyholders? All this, and cryptic hints from Adrian and Tyler! It has been a crazy year and we're looking forward to keeping you informed throughout 2022 as well!

Log4j, solar winds, tesla hacks, and the wave of high profile appsec problems aren’t going to go away with current approaches like SAST and SCA. Why? They are: -40 years old, with little innovation -Haven’t solved the problem. In this segment, we talk about fully autonomous application security. Vetted by DARPA in the Cyber Grand Challenge, the approach is different: -Prove bugs, rather than trying to list all of them. -Zero false positives, which leads to better autonomy.

Like our interview with Allie Mellen last week (episode 253, check it out also), we have another analyst roundtable here (all ESW hosts are former analysts), discussing one of the hottest new cybersecurity categories - XDR. This discussion will touch on why the only thing about XDR that was a surprise was maybe the name - we all saw this coming, partly due to the failure of other, less effective products and technologies. Perhaps more interesting will be to get Scott's thoughts on where we're going from a macro perspective. Distributed SOC? Automated remediation? Next-gen XDR?

Not all security is complicated--many aspects boil down to noticing that something is off. Attentive and curious employees are an overlooked safety mechanism, as is handling problems in a constructive way.

Passwordless is everywhere these days, but like most new security markets, it's shrouded in confusion. There are already dozens of vendors promising to kill the password, but they don't all seem to be coming at the challenge the same way. In this "First Look" segment, our goal is to define Passwordless, discuss some of the companies doing it, and how they're doing it. We'll even go through a few live passwordless demos.

Ransomware: the problem that everyone is talking about, yet somehow continues to get worse with each passing year. In 2021, the cost of ransomware to global businesses is estimated to reach a whopping $20B. The problem has reached such a critical mass that it can no longer be cast away as some unknowable IT problem––everyone from cyber insurance providers to the federal government have taken note. ExtraHop VP, GM of International and Global Security Programs Mike Campfield joins Security Weekly for a retrospective on ransomware in 2021, shares his predictions on how it will evolve in 2022 and beyond, and what controls enterprises can put into place to build their resilience to the growing threat.

Risk based security programs are all the rage, from managers looking to "trim" the security budget to regulatory bodies looking for excuses to fine your company. Nick is a security pro who has seen it all -- programs done well, programs done poorly, and implemented one or two of them himself, and would love to share the lessons learned from those experiences.

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.

Traditionally, the red team has been seen as "fun and interesting", with blue team characterized as "all work, no play" in terms of cybersecurity career paths. Today we talk with Frank McGovern to explore the current state of blue teams and the importance of security policy. Not only has Frank been a practitioner his entire career, but he also built Blue Team Con, a labor of love designed to fill a significant gap in both the Chicago security events scene and across the wider cybersecurity events industry.

When it comes to detecting the next cyber breach, would your organization pass the test? Of course, in real life, you not only need to ace the practice exam – you need to test against the real threats. So when SE Labs recently conducted the industry’s first network detection and response (NDR) test against NSX NDR, they used a range of advanced persistent threats designed to compromise systems and penetrate target networks in the same way as criminals and other attackers breach systems and networks. And the result? VMware NSX Network Detection and Response (NDR) was able to detect every targeted attack and tracked each of the hostile activities that occurred during the attacks. Every. One.

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.
