This week, we changed things up a bit for the news segment and Allie Mellen joins us as a surprise guest host! We discuss Cisco's Splunk acquisition and what it means for Splunk customers, and "The Blob" - Allie's term describing the negative forces responsible for much of the overhyped marketing, silly trends, and substandard products we see in the industry.

The concept of Edge computing has evolved over the years and now has a distinct role alongside public cloud. Theresa Lanowitz, from AT&T Cybersecurity, and Chris Goettl from Ivanti join us to discuss what edge computing means for the market and for cybersecurity. Specifically, we'll discuss how:

  • Strong use cases in the market today for edge computing
  • Security's role in edge computing, as a relative newcomer to part of the broader planning process
  • Edge computing requires new thinking about security because of its distributed nature

We ALL use SaaS. It has become ubiquitous in both our personal and professional lives. Somehow, the SaaS Security market has only recently began to emerge. Today's interview with Yoni Shohet, co-founder and CEO of Valence Security, aims to understand why it has taken so long for SaaS Security products to come to market, what that market currently looks like, and what a SaaS Security product actually does.

If you've ever played Dungeons & Dragons, you probably know that the quality of the experience depends on how prepared, experienced, and talented the Dungeon Master is.

Today, we'll talk to InfoSec DM and practitioner extraordinaire Ryan Fried about some of the key elements that separate a good cybersecurity tabletop exercise from a bad one! This is literally his day job at Mandiant, and it doesn't hurt to have one of the world's largest libraries of attacker TTPs and the collective lessons learned from thousands of actual incident response experiences.

Forrester Research releases a few annual reoccurring cybersecurity reports, but one of the biggest that covers the most ground is the Security Risk Planning Guide, which was recently released for 2024. One of the report's 17 authors, and research director, Merritt Maxim, will walk us through the report's most interesting insights and highlights. This is going to be considerably interesting considering some of this year's trends impacting security teams:

  • An economic downturn, resulting in layoffs and budget freezes
  • The widespread proliferation of generative AI technology
  • The relentless and resilient nature of cybercrime, despite some notable law enforcement wins
  • Ongoing discussion about the role and relevance of SOCs, CISO's, as well as the security department place in today's enterprise
  • Increased enterprise reliance on SaaS and Cloud, as vendors and service providers continue to struggle with securing their products and services

In this news segment, we start off by discussing funding, acquisitions, and Ironnet's unfortunate demise. We discuss Gmail's new, extra verifications for sensitive actions and Lockheed Martin's Hoppr SBOM and software supply-chain utility kit. We get into CISA's roadmap to help secure open source software, and their offer to run free vulnerability scans for the United States' 150,000+ water utilities. Then, discussion turns back to some more negative items with Brazil's self-inflicted $11 billion dollar data leak, and the MGM/Caesar's ransomware attacks, which seem like they could have a common attacker and initial attack vector (a shared IT support company, perhaps). We also discuss Microsoft's post mortem on the Storm-0558 attack. Kelly Shortridge wants to know, "why are you logging into production hosts", someone is submitting garbage CVEs, and Mozilla finds that privacy policies from auto manufacturers are a privacy TRAIN WRECK. Finally, we wrap up discussing tools that can detect deepfake audio, as well as the likelihood that this will be the start of a game of leapfrog, as deepfakes get increasingly better over time. And we discuss Delphi's offer to create a 'digital clone' of you that could live on forever, haunting your descendants.

We talk to Chris Sanders today, who has been steeped in the world of SecOps and detection/response for many years. After many years of writing books and training folks in the cybersecurity industry, he started delving into cognitive psychology and educational effectiveness. He leverages this knowledge in the training classes he builds and delivers. Today we'll discuss why it seems like defenders are still failing, despite the security industry largely (and arguably) receiving the resources it has been requesting.

There's still serious, late stage funding for compelling tech in cybersecurity, SpyCloud proves with it's $110M Series D. We discuss the SentinelOne/Wiz merger rumors. Sadly layoffs and even company failures are still occurring, thought Tyler thinks the market downturn is close to bottoming out. NordVPN spins off an AI skunkworks called NordLabs. The Browser Company has a great company vision page that's worth checking out. Two interesting LLM prompt-related tools to check out are PIPE and promptmap (both on github). Brazilian phone spyware WebDetetive (sic) gets hacked and all victim data deleted. US takes down QakBot and *removes* it from infected systems! Finally, a homing pigeon proves that birds are faster than gigabit Internet :D
