Rank #1: Peering Into the Dark Places - An Interview with Michael Marriott of Digital Shadows

Jul 11 2018
Podcast cover

In this episode of the Cyber Security Dispatch we welcome Michael Marriot of Digital Shadows, a company specializing in security from dark web threats. Although we often see to hear about the dark web and the dangers of these hidden portals of the internet, its very nature means it is often spoken about in the vaguest of terms. Michael gives us a quick dive into an understanding of what the dark web provides and why it is not always the bad place it is supposed to be. We look at the market places that are housed within the dark web and thus talk about the types of cyber crimes that typically occur in these spaces. Our guest does a great job of explaining just how his company can protect customers from these types of threats and we also discuss how more widespread proactive user behavior could lead to decreases in these threats. Michael offers a lot of insightful information on rippers, security strategies and criminal personas, so this is an episode you are not going to want to miss.

Rank #2: Using the New Toys to Solve the Legacy Issues - An Interview with Scott Laliberte of Protiviti

Jul 02 2018
Podcast cover

Today on the show we speak with Scott Laliberte, the former Information Security Systems Officer for the US Coastguard and Managing Director and Global Leader of the Cyber Security and Privacy Practice at the global consulting firm, Protiviti. In this episode, we discuss the necessary mindset shift that CISOs need to make and why we need to be using new technological toys, like AI and machine learning, to solve legacy issues. Scott shares his findings on how CISOs need to and are starting to talk the business language and how the changing narrative of what security does for business can lead to a more cohesive enterprise. We find out why acknowledging weaknesses, foregrounding transparency and “talking the talk” can lead to a CISO’s longevity and success. In addition, we discuss the tech skills shortage and how the industry is working to create a balance between the experienced workforce and the new kids on the block.

In this episode Giovanni shares his unique perspective as both a security technologist and an academic on educating and diversifying the next generation of software programmers and data scientists. Giovanni also shares his insight on technical superiority, buzz word trends, and how triage is the most overlooked and probably the most impactful aspect of security operations today. If done right, triage could be a powerful ally. If done poorly it can suck up time, investment, and leave you exposed. Lastly, we head to the soccer field and find out why CISO’s are just like goal keepers – all guts no glory. Can we really get credit for the attacks that didn’t happen? Find out in this episode.
