Hacker Valley Blue S2 Episode 5 - Jamie Dicken and Aaron Rinehart

Hacker Valley Studio

In this episode, we brought in two exceptional guests that are no stranger to chaos. In fact, they've identified ways to engineer for chaos. In the studio, we have Aaron Rinehart, CTO, and founder at Verica. We also have Jamie Dicken, former manager of applied security at Cardinal Health and current director at Resilience. These two are also authors of Security Chaos Engineering. If you haven't read that book it's already out, you should check it out.  Chaos engineering is the technique of introducing turbulent conditions into a distributed system to try to determine the conditions that cause it to fail before it actually fails. So they simplify it. What we do with chaos engineering is learn about the system without experiencing the pain of an outage or an incident. You learn to trust your gear by testing. The biggest impact really came once we understood how security chaos engineering fits into the bigger security picture. It's not about just being a part of the latest and greatest techniques and having the excitement of doing something that's cutting edge, but security chaos engineering at the end of the day. It's useless unless what you've learned drives change.  Key Takeaways: 0:00 Previously on the show 1:40 Aaron Rinehart and Jamie Dixon introduction  2:08 Episode begins 2:59 What Jamie and Aaron are doing today 3:13 What Jamie is doing 4:13 What Aaron is doing 5:00 Discuss chaos engineering 9:26 Importance of chaos engineering 10:16 Myths of chaos engineering 12:55 Chaos engineering customer impacts 17:34 Learning to trust the test and end result 19:03 Reader and customer feedback 22:21 Chaos engineering gone wrong 27:39 Implementing change in cybersecurity 28:11 Building a team of experts 39:08 Getting involved in chaos engineering  41:09 Tools for listeners 43:25 Keeping up with Aaron and Jamie Aaron Rinehart on Twitter aaron@verica.io Jamie Dicken on Twitter Verica on LinkedIn Verica Free Book  Learn more about Hacker Valley Studio Support Hacker Valley Studio on Patreon Follow Hacker Valley Studio on Twitter Follow Ron Eddings on Twitter Follow Chris Cochran on Twitter Sponsored by Axonius

Aaron Rinehart -- Security Chaos Engineering

Application Security PodCast

Aaron Rinehart is expanding the possibilities of chaos engineering to cybersecurity. He began pioneering security in chaos engineering when he released ChaoSlingr during his tenure as Chief Security Architect at UnitedHealth Group (UHG). Rinehart is the O'Reilly Author on Security Chaos Engineering and has recently founded a chaos engineering startup called Verica with Casey Rosenthal from Netflix. Aaron joins us to explain what the heck security chaos engineering is. We explore the origin story of chaos engineering and security chaos engineering and how a listener starts with this new technique. We hope you enjoy this conversation with...Aaron Rinehart.

Ep. #67, Security Chaos Engineering - What is it and why should you care? with Aaron Rinehart from Verica

The Secure Developer

Chaos engineering is a powerful practice where experiments are run to build confidence that a system operates as expected. While the practice shapes the way that large-scale systems are built, it is underutilized in the security space. Verica, a continuous verification company that uses chaos engineering to make systems more secure, is looking to remedy this shortfall, and its co-founder and CTO, Aaron Rinehart joins us today. Aaron has been expanding the possibilities of chaos engineering in its application to other safety-critical portions of the IT domain, notably cybersecurity. In this episode, we learn more about Aaron’s diverse background. Having worked as a developer before making his move into security, he understands systems intricately, giving him unique insights. We then dive into chaos engineering, the proactive approach it takes, and the intentional feedback loop it provides. Aaron believes that these experiments are great learning moments because there is not a high cognitive load that comes with unplanned system failures. After, we turn our attention to how chaos engineering ensures systems' stability is accelerated in a controlled and managed way. Along with this, we explore why it’s not necessary to wait for production to test different security controls, what security chaos engineering offers instant response teams, and some fascinating use cases. Be sure to tune in today!

Aaron Rinehart talks Chaos Engineering, ChaoSlinger, and objective monitoring of security components

HACKED: Into the minds of Cybersecurity leaders

We dive deep into Chaos Engineering’s use in security and Aaron Rinehart’s brain child, ChaoSlinger. Aaron dives into the impact of objective monitoring for security components and techniques for learning how components actually function in the environment. We also dive into the difference between building a program based on regulations vs. building as an engineering discipline. You can find more on Aaron Rinehart and ChaoSlinger on LinkedIn at Aaron Rinehart and on Twitter @aaronrinehart.
