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.

Having direct visibility into your access data is crucial for two reasons: 1. Simplifying audit preparation and 2. Managing progress of your identity program to ensure peak performance. Internal auditors and compliance managers need easy access to granular data points to understand and demonstrate compliance to external agencies. Gaining access to real time data creates a great deal of autonomy for audit and identity teams to be able to delve deep into their identity programs and prove compliance. However, making the data available even internally can put organizations at risk for data leaks and data policy violations. Erik will outline how companies can gain access to their current identity search and dashboard data and be able to query in their preferred BI tool based on their own data privacy policies and business needs, significantly reducing risk.

During this segment, Jon will explore today’s ransomware economy players from IABS to RaaS affiliates, to money launders and now C2Ps. For the discussion, Jon will leverage Halcyon’s latest research, which demonstrates a new technique to uncover how C2Ps, like Cloudzy, are used to identify upcoming ransomware campaigns and other advanced attacks. The research revealed that Cloudzy, knowingly or not, provided services to attackers while assuming a legitimate business profile. Threat actors that leveraged Cloudzy include APT groups tied to the Chinese, Iranian, North Korean, Russian, Indian, Pakistani, and Vietnamese governments; a sanctioned Israeli spyware vendor whose tools are known to target civilians; several criminal syndicates and ransomware affiliates whose campaigns have spurred international headlines.

In this Black Hat 2023 interview, CRA’s Bill Brenner and Sophos’ John Shier discuss the company’s latest research on the Royal ransomware gang. Though Royal is a notoriously closed off group that doesn’t openly solicit affiliates from underground forums, granular similarities in the forensics of the attacks suggest all three groups are sharing either affiliates or highly specific technical details of their activities.

Incredibly, the seemingly simple task of managing corporate-owned devices is still a struggle for most organizations in 2023. Maybe best MDM for Mac doesn't work with Windows, or the best MDM for Windows doesn't work with Mac. Maybe neither have Linux support. Perhaps they don't provide enough insight into the endpoint, or control over it. Whatever the case, security leaders never seem satisfied with their MDM solution and are always investigating new ones. Now, Kolide has stepped in with a unique approach to device management, combining the flexibility and industry support for OSQuery and built to integrate with IdP giant Okta. We discuss Kolide's entrance into the device management space and the current state of MDM - what's wrong with it, and how does Kolide propose to fix it?

With Active Directory (AD) exploited in 9 out of 10 cyberattacks, delaying AD modernization—especially after a merger or acquisition—can compound security risks. Security is the most compelling reason to migrate to a pristine AD forest or perform an AD forest or domain consolidation, but many organizations delay such projects due to the effort and planning they require. We talk with Mickey Bresman about the keys to a smooth and secure AD modernization strategy.

Security organizations are increasingly adopting data lakes and cloud services as additions or alternatives to traditional SIEMs, but face challenges like scarcity of data engineering expertise and high data ingestion and cloud compute costs. To overcome these, a new security data stack is emerging, guided by models like SecDataOps and supported by solutions like Tenzir. In this segment, we will be talking about what is driving the heavy use of data in security operations, why that is stressing traditional security operations tools and processes, and what some early-adopter organizations are doing to meet these challenges.

We discuss Ian Amit's background and what led him to want to leave the CISO life to create a startup! It's one thing for a security product to report problems to a security team. Everyone has these tools, but the problem is that someone has to analyze and triage all those findings, leading to alert fatigue and not a lot getting fixed.

While malware and ransomware tend to dominate cybersecurity headlines, Fortra’s research shows that nearly 99% of email threats reaching corporate inboxes utilize impersonation rather than malware. Email impersonation is a key component of credential phishing, advance fee fraud, hybrid vishing, and business email compromise schemes. Because email impersonation scams rely on social engineering rather than technology, the barrier to entry for an aspiring cybercriminal is almost non-existent. In this segment, we’ll explore strategies for defending against email impersonation.
