We've made a slight tweak to the news format, only focusing on the most interesting funding and acquisition stories. As always, you can go check out Mike Privette's Return on Security newsletter for the full list of funded and acquired companies every week.

This week, we discuss two $100M+ rounds, from Huntress and Semperis. We also discuss NetSPI's acquisition of Hubble, and the future of the CAASM market.

We focus on the important of detection engineering, echoing some of Martin Roesch's thoughts from our interview with him just before the news. One story is from the excellent DFIR report, a website and newsletter you should absolutely be subscribed to if detection engineering is important to you. The other story is from Thinkst, and showcases their ability to create file share honeypots with file listings that can now be tailored to specific industries.

We discuss the results of some polls that RSnake ran on Twitter, to get feedback from folks on what they think about these models where CISOs are reportedly getting kickbacks for buying products from companies they advise.

We also discuss the latest whistleblower insights about Microsoft and the state of security there, and the recent Polyfill.io incident that targeted over 100k websites with malware.

Finally, we spend the rest of the news segment discussing the current state of Generative AI, from our own perspectives, but also through the lens of Bruce Schneier's latest blog post, a year old post from Marc Andreesen, and a rage-fueled rant from an angry Aussie.

Don't miss the squirrel story - we highly recommend sending it to all your PhD friends (or not, if they're easily insulted and/or likely to hold a grudge).

For decades, security teams have been focused on preventing and detecting threats, only to find themselves buried so deep in alerts, they can't detect anything at all! We clearly need a different approach, which will be the topic of our conversation today with Marty. We'll be discussing a shift in philosophy and tactics. We'll discuss whether SecOps has a hoarding problem, and possible paths out of the current situation preventing today's teams from successfully detecting attacks. Finally, we'll discuss the impact AI has on all this (if any).

We all might be a little worn out on this topic, but there's no escaping it. Executives want to adopt GenAI and it is being embedded into nearly every software product we use in both our professional and personal lives. In this interview, Anurag joins us to discuss how his company evaluated and ultimately integrated AI-based technologies into their products. We discuss:

  • What to be aware of when deploying GenAI
  • Key use cases and successes organizations are having with GenAI
  • Some of the risks to be aware of
  • How to prepare employees for GenAI
  • Best practices to prepare for evolving threats

In the age of AI, driving a business forward requires balancing three very significant considerations: growth through innovation, productivity through operational efficiency, and trust through security. To better understand how AI impacts the intersection of security, innovation, and operational efficiency, Okta commissioned an AlphaSights survey of 125 executives across three regions, targeting the decision-makers typically tasked with helming those efforts at companies:

  • CSOs/CISOs for their focus on security
  • CTOs for their focus on innovation
  • CIOs for their focus on operational efficiency

Bhawna Singh, Chief Technology Officer at Okta, is here to discuss the results.

Traditional approaches to access management are no longer sufficient to safeguard enterprise security. Tim will explain why the most effective approach to modern enterprise security requires a Zero Trust model that extends beyond just access to encompass every action, no matter how minor.

Tim will describe the importance of implementing a Zero Trust framework that evaluates each command, query, and configuration change in real-time, and how that delivers the most effective and complete security solution. Doing so involves the application of fine-grained authorization policies that adapt to the context of the user, the sensitivity of the action, and the prevailing threat landscape.

Traditional IGA solutions are not risk-focused by design, and as audit and compliance focus continues to expand beyond core ERP systems and into line of business apps and point solutions, organizations must plan holistically how to address risk across their application landscape. It’s never too late to start kicking off your risk reduction journey, and utilizing an innovative, unified platform for both identity and access risk governance has significant, compounding benefits and helps organizations realize faster time to value, lower TCO and longer term consistent risk exposure reduction. Ensuring access to all of your business-critical applications is provisioned seamlessly, efficiently, and cost-effectively while meeting risk, audit and compliance requirements should be the primary goal of any identity and access risk governance solution implementation.

Remote identity verification is one of the biggest challenges in the digital age, especially with the use of AI-generated deepfakes which are now impossible to distinguish from real imagery with the human eye. AI-powered biometrics have emerged as the most robust defense against deepfakes - and therefore, the only reliable method for remote identity verification.

The criminal opportunity shaping the landscape today and how authoritative, accurate and automated processes are helping others increase their conversion rates by 20% while preventing 99% of all fraudulent attempts. What is the Criminal Opportunity facing us all right now? Data breaches and mail theft have resulted in a record level of available compromised Identity Information, payment information, and login information and even stolen checks. It has been said that ’At this point, all of our information is out on the dark web and it's now just a matter of when is it going to be used against us.’ Combined with inadequate fraud strategies, fraudsters have the key to the castle, it’s a perfect scenario of having the answers to the quiz ahead of time.

Cyberattacks, fraud and breaches, we’ve all studied them, and we are all aware that identity is under attack. And if we thought it was bad up until now, we haven't fully seen the impact of GenAI based identity attacks. Going beyond just Deepfakes, GenAI-powered malicious services such as FraudGPT, lets novices craft targeted and sophisticated attacks that bypass common IAM and security controls. Identity and security leaders must brace themselves for an increase in the volume, velocity and variety of attacks ("the three V's:). In this talk, former Gartner analyst David Mahdi and CIO of Transmit Security cover what you need to know about GenAI these attacks, and what you can do about it. Specifically, the types of attacks fraudsters are conducting across the identity lifecycle, insight into their tactics and services, and finally recommendations for a path forward.

Log4j, solar winds, tesla hacks, and the wave of high profile appsec problems aren’t going to go away with current approaches like SAST and SCA. Why? They are:

-40 years old, with little innovation

-Haven’t solved the problem.

In this segment, we talk about fully autonomous application security. Vetted by DARPA in the Cyber Grand Challenge, the approach is different:

-Prove bugs, rather than trying to list all of them.

-Zero false positives, which leads to better autonomy.

Zero Trust is the security buzzword of the moment, and while it is a very powerful approach, nearly every enterprise security product on the market – and some that aren’t even security products — are saying they enable Zero Trust. The problem is this: you can’t buy zero trust. It’s an approach, an architecture, and a journey, not software, hardware, or a service to deploy. Zero Trust also provides a rare opportunity in security - to reduce cost, improve security AND enhance end-user and customer experience.

Several recent trends underscore the increasing importance of Know Your Business (KYB) practices in today's business landscape. One significant trend is the rise in financial crimes, including money laundering, fraud, and terrorist financing. Technological advancements have transformed the way businesses operate, leading to increased digitization, online transactions, and remote customer interactions. While these developments offer numerous benefits, they also create opportunities for criminals to exploit vulnerabilities. Higher value remote transactions are performed at higher volumes. In addition, government programs such as the PPP program created a need for onboarding business quickly. This created a influx of fraudulent entities and claim who are now exploiting other channels. The convergence of these trends highlights the critical role of KYB in safeguarding businesses, ensuring regulatory compliance, and fostering trust among stakeholders in today's dynamic and interconnected business environment.

With identity being the new security perimeter, identity platforms are now an integral part of the core security stack. Inherently these platforms are complex and it takes months and years for organizations to realize the business value. And this is going to get worse. The sheer volume and velocity with which new identity types are being added, as well the sophistication of attacks on identity platforms, requires a transformational shift to Identity security and governance. 50% operational efficiency and delivering security at scale are the two big initiatives which organizations have embarked on. In this session, Vibhuti Sinha, Chief Product Officer of Saviynt will share his insights and discuss how Saviynt is at the forefront of this transformation.

Microsoft Recall and Apple Intelligence are the perfect bookends for a conversation about the importance of handling consumer privacy concerns at launch.

How can the Snowflake breach both be one of the biggest breaches ever, but also not a breach at all (for Snowflake, at least). It's time to have a conversation about shared responsibilities, and when the line between CSP and customer needs to shift.
