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.

This week, in the security market, we talk about next NEXT gen anti-virus, how Okta can (apparently) do no wrong, and a VC firm imploding.

Then we discuss how smartphones and speakers are allegedly being used to spy on us, and the future of privacy and consumer tech products.

The latest SSH vuln is much less concerning than media outlets and academic researchers would have you believe. The Citrixbleed vuln, however is about as bad as vulns can get, and has led to one of the biggest US consumer breaches in a while, with Comcast/XFinity losing all customer records.

The SEC backpedals (again!) on requiring breached companies to provide details about how they got breached.

And finally, we have some fun with some squirrel stories that you should absolutely check out by going to our show notes, here: https://securityweekly.com/esw344

Understanding how CyberRatings, NaaS, and SASE combine to make network security easier to buy and deploy. MEF is an industry association, providing standards, certifications, and facilitating community discussions. MEF has teamed up with CyberRatings.org to establish a certification program for SASE services, making it easier for buyers to understand what's included in SASE-related products and services.

We're excited to give an end-of-year readout on the performance of the cybersecurity industry with Mike Privette, founder of Return on Security and author of the weekly Security, Funded newsletter. This year, this podcast has leaned heavily on the Security, Funded newsletter to prep for our news segment, as it provides a great summary of all the funding and M&A events going on each week.

In this segment, we look back at 2023, statistics for the year, comparisons to 2022, interesting insights, predictions, and more!

On this week's news segment, we pick up where we left off with Doug running the show last week. We discuss current early stage categories, AD canarytokens, and low hanging vulns. We talk about why cybersecurity is important, but not nearly as unique or special as some might have you think. The goal of patching faster than exploits can be used - is it a fool's errand?

Also, pickleball - the country's fastest growing sport, is causing chaos across the nation.

What is telemetry data and why is it important to cybersecurity? Why is it such a pain to collect, store and use? How do we improve our ability to gather and benefit from this data? Today, Tucker Callaway, the CEO of Mezmo joins us to answer all these questions and help us understand the future of the SIEM and other cybersecurity data tools.

On this podcast, we've often struggled with whether or not to include stories and discussion on identity verification. Is identity verification cybersecurity proper, or cybersecurity adjacent as part of fraud prevention? As always, when we're unsure, we find folks to talk to and learn more.

Today, we'll be learning about weak points in the identity verification chain from Rob O'Farrell. He'll also be helping us to understand what identity verification is, and why it's important to cybersecurity overall. As more and more of the world is digitized (especially the lagging healthcare industry in the US), reliable identity verification seems more important every day.

This week in the enterprise news, we explore the harsh realities of the startup world with a look at recent failures and shutdowns, investigating the factors leading to these setbacks. Meanwhile, Carbon Black makes headlines by breaking away from VMware in what seems like a divestiture within an acquisition, raising questions about the future of the company. We'll also discuss the European Space Agency's venture into cybersecurity for the space industry, revealing that even the vastness of outer space isn't immune to digital threats. Tune in for all this and more!

Bob Ackerman argues that, from an investment perspective, cybersecurity is like life sciences - a complex, nuanced field that is difficult field to invest in part-time. So his firm, Allegis Cyber, became one of the first to focus exclusively on investing in cyber startups. In this segment, we'll discuss one of Allegis's recent investments, SixMap, and Bob's other investment/accelerator vehicle, Data Tribe. Data Tribe sources investments from national intelligence, with examples like Dragos that came through this program.

Nine out of the ten funding articles mention AI - they're either using it in their products, or protecting AI use cases (particularly GenAI and LLM use).

We discuss Broadcom's closing of the VMware acquisition, how they operate similarly to private equity firms, and how it's mostly bad news for VMware employees and customers.

Some weird legal cases this week: Binance's founder and CEO pleads guilty to money laundering charges, a cybersecurity company's COO pleads guilty to attacking hospitals to generate sales leads, and Hacking Team's founder is arrested for attempted murder!

We devote a chunk of time to discussing the huge rise in ransomware activity, and close out the show with a squirrel story on the tiny Pacific island nation of Tokelau, and how the .tk domain has destroyed its reputation, and nearly the nation itself.

As with any category of trends, the success rate of cybercrime ebbs and flows. As Russia seems be a safe haven for cybercriminals, it seemed for a while that the war in Ukraine might disrupt this activity. It did, but only for a short while.

Keith Jarvis walks us through the latest types, tactics, and trends in cybercrime. Secureworks' latest State of the Threat report reveals a disturbing dichotomy: how is it we understand our adversaries' so well, but continue to fail to stop them? In this interview, we aim to understand what needs to happen to tilt the odds a bit back in our favor.
