In today’s hyper-connected world, devices are everywhere, people are online constantly and sensitive data has moved to the cloud. Given these trends, organizations are making digital trust a strategic imperative. More than ever, companies need a unified platform, modern architecture and flexible deployment options in order to put digital trust to work.

Bill Brenner, VP of content strategy at CyberRisk Alliance, and Cisco storyteller/team leader/editor Steve Ragan discuss the issues security professionals are sinking their teeth into at RSA Conference 2023, including:

  • Threats organizations face amid geopolitical strife (Russia/Ukraine, China, North Korea)
  • What SOCs need to respond to a world on fire (training for cloud-based ops, XDR)
  • Challenges of identity and access management (zero trust, MFA, hybrid work environments)
  • Challenges of vulnerability management (finding the most critical flaws in the cloud, key attack vectors in 2023, ransomware)

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 breach.

While companies utilize dozens of security solutions, they continue to be compromised and are continually searching for their real cybersecurity gaps amongst the overload of vulnerability data. A primary issue security teams face is that they lack a way to continuously validate the effectiveness of the different security solutions they have in place. Automated Security Validation is revolutionizing cybersecurity by applying software validation algorithms, for what was once manual penetration testing jobs. It takes the attacker's perspective to challenge the integrity and resilience of security defenses by continuously emulating cyber attacks against them.

Security teams are always on the lookout for external threats that can harm our organizations. However, an internal threat can derail productivity and lead to human error and burnout: repetitive, mundane tasks. To effectively defend against evolving threats, organizations must leverage no-code automation and free analysts to focus on higher-level projects that can improve their organization’s security posture.

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...

Semperis CEO Mickey Bresman sits down with SC Magazine to share practical steps for improving Active Directory resilience in the face of escalating cyberattacks, using real-world examples. With cybercrime costs projected to reach $8 trillion in 2023 and AD being the top target for attackers, organizations must prepare to detect, respond, and recover from AD-based attacks. Learn how InfoSec and IAM teams can operationalize the Gartner "top trending" topic of identity threat detection and response (ITDR) to ward off attackers and take back the advantage.

Today’s CISOs are laser focused on three imperatives: reducing risk; reducing operational costs, and attracting or retaining top talent. All three priorities are driven by creating a better SOC analyst experience which translates to less time to detect and respond to an attack. In this discussion, we’ll uncover how Extended Detection & Response (XDR) can drastically improve the SOC analyst experience and alleviate CISOs’ top challenges.

While emerging cyber threats and vulnerabilities tend to dominate headlines, criminals often exploit known vulnerabilities to gain access to critical systems and data for nefarious purposes. And with the number of vulnerabilities rising constantly, they can pose significant risk to organizations, especially if defenders don’t know which ones are critical. Learn how Expel is helping to pull back the curtain on how organizations can more effectively prioritize their most critical vulnerabilities.

Cars have evolved from a physical mode of transportation to a digitized experience, bringing with it new risks and challenges in security, privacy and user experience. Putting identity at the center of the connected world solves simplicity and safety challenges, including physical safety, digital security and data privacy. Furthermore, decentralized identity plays a major role in a better, more secure seamless experience – not just for vehicles, but for society at large.

There is a war on trust in the digital world, and people are caught in the crosshairs. Everywhere we look, there are identity risks with crippling repercussions for businesses, whether fake people, fake content, or insecure web links. With the rise of generative AI tools in business, threat actors are utilizing these technologies to create more sophisticated phishing emails – mimicking brands and tone or more easily translating copy into several languages making them more difficult to identify and easily connecting hackers with global audiences. Now is the time to implement solutions that empower a connected thread of trust between businesses and users – before all trust is lost.

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.

“Man plans, the Universe laughs” - unfortunately, that’s been the saying for far too long when it comes to cybersecurity. Security leaders know it's only a matter of time before their organization gets breached, but instead of being ready for it, they rely on fixing the problem after it happens. In Cisco’s newest report, the first ever Cybersecurity Readiness Index, it was found that a small minority of businesses globally (15%) consider themselves to be ready and able to defend against the expanding array of cybersecurity risks and threats of today. Organizations need to get ready and stay ready with solutions they can trust.

AT&T Cybersecurity released its 12th annual Cybersecurity Insights Report, “Edge Ecosystem,” which highlights the dramatic shift in computing underpinned by 5G, the edge, and the convergence of networking and security. The report found that business and technology leaders are finally coming together not just to understand the new edge computing ecosystem, but to make more predictable, data-informed business decisions. Collaboration among these leaders, as well as external partners in the ecosystem, will be critical for the edge journey ahead – but more progress must be made to better leverage the edge and transform the business.
