In this week's news segment, we discuss the lack of funding announcements, and the potential effect RSA could have on the timing of all sorts of press releases. We also discuss 1Password's potential future with its sizable customer base and the $620M it raised a few years back.

Some other topics we discuss:

  • NIST CSF 2.0
  • insider threats
  • Ivanti Pulse Secure's appliance software found to be running positively ancient software (11 year old Linux distro, 5-20+ year old libraries & components)
  • Nevada AG trying to get messaging decrypted for children, to "protect them"
  • Kelly Shortridge's response to CISA's secure development RFI
  • OpenAI's new GenAI video product, Sora and the potential impact it could have on cybersecurity
  • Instacart spews out crappy AI recipes and photos

Pascal Geenens from Radware joins us to discuss the latest research findings relating to hacktivists an other actors using volumetric and other network-based attacks. We'll discuss everything from the current state of DDoS attacks to use in the military and even the impact of cyberattacks on popular culture!

You can find the report Pascal mentions here, on Radware's website: https://www.radware.com/threat-analysis-report/

Check out this interview from the ESW Vault, hand picked by main host Adrian Sanabria! This segment was originally published on September 22, 2021.

Chris will discuss the relevance of intelligence and threat hunting today and how they work together. He will also talk about his EASY framework for creating impactful intelligence and its relation to hunting!

This is almost a special episode on crazy new products. For the first half of the show, we discuss startup funding, market forces, acquisitions - stuff we usually discuss.

Then we get into all the crazy new AI and non-AI products being announced and coming out. Have some disposable cash to pre-order crazy gadgets? This is the episode for you!

In this segment, featuring guest Amer Deeba, we'll explore how the SEC's new breach reporting rules will affect companies. We've got a ton of questions: What behavior has to change? What additional preparation needs to take place? How does this rule affect data security? How does it affect crisis communications?

And most importantly, when is an incident "material"?

This week, we discussed how a quick (minutes) and cheap ($15 a pop) fake ID service creates VERY convincing IDs that are possibly good enough to fool ID verification services, HR, and a load of other scenarios where it's common to share images of an ID. Kudos to 404Media's work there.

In the security market, we discuss who might be the first cybersecurity unicorn to go public in 2024, Oasis Security and Tenchi's funding rounds, Protect AI's acquisition of Laiyer AI and their FOSS project, LLM Guard. We discussed the seemingly inevitable M&A activity as unfunded security startups NEED to find a sale. Ross Haleliuk had an interesting LinkedIn post that goes deeper on this topic. Finally, we discussed Tyler's observation that Palo Alto Networks did the seemingly impossible - increased their valuation from $19B to over $100B in 5 years, despite having to weather a pandemic and market downturn along the way! Ryan pointed out that PANW joined the S&P 500 somewhere along the way - a watershed moment for them.

We discussed Bluesky and how it's likely too little too late when it comes to building back the community we lost when much of the InfoSec community left Twitter.

We also discussed a cybersecurity training scammer, Daniel Miessler's new Fabric tool, AnyDesk getting hacked, The Real Shim Shady vuln, new (voluntary) cybersecurity goals for healthcare, and the lack of toothbrush-enabled DDoS attacks!

Legacy systems are riddled with outdated and unreliable cryptographic standards. So much so that recent proprietary research found 61 percent of the traffic was unencrypted, and up to 80% of encrypted network traffic has some defeatable flaw in its encryption

No longer can enterprises take their cryptography for granted, rarely evaluated or checked.

Knowing when, where and what type of cryptography is used throughout the enterprise and by which applications is critical to your overall security policy, zero-trust approach, and risk management strategy. After all, zero-trust is meaningless if your cryptography isn't working.

We've seen general users targeted with phishing, financial employees targeted for BEC scams, and engineers targeted for access to infrastructure. The truly scary attacks, however, are the indirect ones that are automated. The threats that come in via software updates, or trusted connections with third parties.

The software supply chain is both absolutely essential, and fragile. A single developer pulling a tiny library out of NPM can cause chaos. A popular open source project changing hands could instantly give access to millions of systems. Every day, a new app store or component repository pops up and becomes critical to maintaining infrastructure.

In this interview, we'll chat with Pete Morgan about how these risks can be managed and mitigated.

Oleria, Vicarius, and Secret Double Octopus raise funding (NOTE: Secret Double Octopus is a real company that chose Secret Double Octopus as their name, I’m making none of this up). Rumors about Zscaler’s next 9-digit acquisition, 2 new security vendors and demystifying public cybersecurity companies.

Chrome gets AI features, security teams have TOO much data, and a new threat intel database from Wiz. Is bootstrapping a cybersecurity startup a realistic option? Finally, remember Furbies? NSA’s furby docs just dropped, and they are HILARIOUS. Thanks to Jason Koebler from 404Media for that.

We interview the co-founder and CTO of Fleet to understand why good, cross platform MDM/EMM has been such a challenge for so many years. Want good Windows device management? You're probably going to compromise on MacOS management. Ditto for Windows if you prioritize your Macs. Want good Linux device management? It doesn't exist.

Hopefully, Fleet can change all that in 2024, as they aim to complete their support for all major platforms, using the open source OSQuery project as their base.

On this segment, we talk a lot about AI, new technologies, and the future from a personal and consumer standpoint. Not a lot of enterprise-relevant stuff in the news today, but consumer products and AI will have a HUGE long-term impact, so that's how we're justifying today's topical focus ;)

The general public has varied opinions of biometric authentication, and an increasingly reluctant relationship with it, as more and more facial recognition is forced upon us (especially those of us that travel frequently). Facial recognition doesn't work for everyone, so what other options do we have?

In this interview, we'll explore accessibility in identity verification and the viability of voice-based authentication. How big an issue are AI-powered voice imposters? How will companies like Veridas combat these threats? We'll ask all these questions and more in this ESW interview.

The year kicks off with TWELVE funding announcements and NINE acquisitions! Several new companies have merged, we already have a few dumpster fires burning and there is plenty of AI news to kick off the year.

The annual Consumer Electronics Show gives us previews of the invasive and insecure horrors that will be unleashed upon us this year, New Yorkers get right to repair, and Polish trains don’t. (see the show notes for more)

Finally, we talk Apple Vision Pro, Tetris, and skydiving iPhones.

Many founders and early stage startups closely guard product details and information about their roadmap and go-to-market plan. Is it a bad idea then to build a company based around an open source project? Not at all, according to Ev Kontsevoy, whose company Teleport has done just that. Building a security vendor around open source isn't a magic formula for success, however, so we'll discuss the pros and cons of this approach.

We'll also discuss best practices for securing infrastructure at scale and Teleport's journey in enabling a different and more secure approach to managing remote infrastructure.

GenAI hype is still at peak levels, but clearly some of the hopes and dreams pinned on it will fail, while other use cases we haven't even imagined will become commonplace. Greg Notch joins us to share his thoughts on what security leaders and the general public should be more or less worried about when it comes to GenAI.
