The past two years have witnessed an unprecedented surge in the adoption of generative artificial intelligence (AI) across various industries. And while this presents new efficiencies, with these benefits come significant security concerns. The widespread integration of AI applications increases the risk of data breaches and intellectual property theft, while also expanding organizations' vulnerability to malicious data injection and other AI-driven cyberattacks. During this interview Jim will explore why it’s imperative to implement robust security measures to mitigate these evolving risks effectively, and how working alongside an MSSP can benefit your overall security posture.

In recent years, ransomware attacks have undergone a transformative evolution, shifting from indiscriminate, mass-distributed assaults to highly targeted, sophisticated campaigns. Kris Lahiri is able to discuss the dynamic landscape of ransomware and dive into the techniques he has seen cybercriminals employ, the motivations behind these attacks, and the escalating impact on individuals, businesses, and critical infrastructure.

Organizations today are overwhelmed with the sheer magnitude of potential cybersecurity threats and there is plenty of vendor buzz around AI in Security products, but what is the reality? Threat detection and incident response (TDIR) strategy and execution have never been more critical and are essential in maintaining cyber resilience and strengthening the security posture of every organization. TDIR aims to identify potential threats and respond before they can impact a business. A layered defense focuses on identifying threat activity, prioritizing investigations, and measuring risk. As a result, organizations can take the appropriate threat mitigation steps. These security strategies and protocols signify a step forward with a TDIR strategy where everyone from the CISO to the security analyst wins.

Vendors, sales channels, partners and other kinds of third parties are essential to most businesses. Ensuring that the information security risks of those other companies don't impact your own is the remit of Third Party Cyber Risk Management (TPCRM) teams. It is increasingly evident, however, that the existing practices and tools are not up to the challenge. They make the process even more adversarial than it needs to be, are focused on risk transfer and/or acceptance rather than reduction; are based on limited and low quality signals; and are often excruciatingly manual. We can do better as an industry, and in this conversation we are going to explore a new paradigm for TPCRM and its advantages for third and first parties.

As a special treat for this week's vault episode, we set up a conversation with Derek Manky to discuss Fortinet's FortiGuard Labs Threat Report. This is a bi-annual report put out by FortiGuard Labs, and in my opinion, it just keeps getting better and better. The report is chock full of actionable information and insights. It answered all my questions about the current state of threats and attacks, like:

  • What is the latest big shift in strategy and focus for ransomware groups?
  • I keep hearing that attackers are getting faster and faster - how much time to defenders actually have these days (to patch a critical vuln, for example)?
  • What are the latest attack techniques being used? Which are used less, or never used?

There's not a dull moment in this conversation - I hope you enjoy listening to or watching it as much as I did making it!

With scores of security tools implemented, configured, and integrated security teams are overwhelmed while knowing there is still a possibility for a breach. As they work to prioritize threat exposures, it is imperative for organizations to have a clear, context-rich, and up-to-date view of their security posture. Picus Security CTO and Co-founder, Volkan Ertürk, explains how consistent security validation allows security teams to pinpoint gaps, prioritize, and quantify risk so they can reduce threat exposure.

Platformization could mean reduction in innovation, reduction in the ability to be flexible, and less competition. But it doesn't have to be this way. Like the IT industry, there are ways for the cybersecurity industry to platformize, but also to have this become a net benefit to the industry as a whole.

The next generation of identity security is not about the popular idea of convergence, but of unification. A single, AI-driven solution that integrates PAM with identity security and access management is the clear path forward to manage and secure all enterprise data through a unified control point.

Over the past 15 years, identity has evolved from a perimeter-based security model with clear boundaries to one that is fluid, flexible, and permeates every aspect of digital business. Simultaneously, AI has infiltrated every enterprise, becoming a double-edged sword for defenders, and fueling fraud attacks across every sector.

In this interview, Ping Identity CEO Andre Durand will walk through the evolution of the identity attack surface, and the opportunity decentralized identity has to dramatically improve both security and experience by putting users in control. He'll also discuss the increasing threats to individuals and businesses, given the influx of AI, and why we should consider this the era of “verify more, trust less.”

As companies adopt new digital cloud technologies, cybercrime threats are on the rise and becoming more sophisticated.

Only one funding announcement this week, so we dive deep into Thoma Bravo's past and present portfolio. They recently announced a sale of Venafi to Cyberark and no one is quite sure how much of a hand they had in the LogRhythm/Exabeam merger, and whether or not they sold their stake in the process.

We also have a crazy stat Ross Haleliuk spotted in Bessemer's analysis: "13 out of 14 cybersecurity companies acquired in the past year for over $100M were from Israel". Is this an anomaly? Does it just mean that Israel wasn't shy about selling when the market was down? We discuss.

A number of new product announcements continue to trickle out post-RSA.

We'll also discuss Sam Altman and OpenAI's decision to use Scarlett Johansson's voice against her will and what it could mean for deepfakes, advanced social engineering techniques, and general big tech sliminess.

The danger of post-breach disruption and downtime is extremely real. And while we should work to prevent these breaches in the first place, we must also be practical and pre-empt any potential incidents. Organisations armed with the most extensive software-based cybersecurity protection today continue to fall prey to hackers, have their operations disrupted and struggle to overcome the loss of data and system corruption. And with more business assets moving to the cloud than ever before - we are just asking for it aren't we? The answer to this lies in advanced engineering at the hardware layer. Easily integrated into enterprise servers and data centers to provide full-stack protection across the entire life cycle of a potential attack.

Over the past two years, we’ve seen the degree of digital trust in our day-to-day lives being pushed to its limits due to the unintended consequences of innovation. From GenAI to IoT security to quantum computing, we will see a “crescendo of trust” that will push trust to its absolute limits. Here, we will focus on IoT/device trust.

Security needs to be everywhere a potential threat exists – from an IOT device to an OT device, a factory floor, an element of infrastructure, an oil rig, a robotic device or an MRT machine – Cisco recognized that with increased connection comes a greater risk than ever before and that you must bring the security to these workloads...not the other way around. In order to keep up with today’s sophisticated and expansive threat landscape, security can no longer be a fence; it needs to be embedded through the fabric of data centers, whether public or private. Cisco Hypershield does just that and gives defenders a fighting chance against adversaries, as now the industry has the advantage.

Suddenly SIEMs are all over the news! In a keynote presentation, Crowdstrike CEO George Kurtz talked about the company's "next-gen" SIEM. Meanwhile, Palo Alto, who was taken to task by some for not having an active presence on the RSAC expo floor, hits the headlines for acquiring IBM's SIEM product, just to shut it down!

Meanwhile, LogRhythm and Exabeam merge, likely with the hopes of weathering the coming storm. The situation seems clear - there's no such thing as "best of breed" SIEM anymore. It's a commodity to be attached to the existing dominant security platforms. Are the days numbered for the older pure-play SIEM/SOAR vendors out there? Crowdstrike and Palo Alto alone could displace a lot of incumbents, even with a less than stellar product.
