Zero Trust Security In a Pandemic Mindset – CF063 2020/09/05, 15:46
Zero Trust Security In a Pandemic Mindset – CF063

This week on Cyber Frontiers Christian and Jim talk about the zero trust security paradigm and how COVID-19 has drawn this security model into focus for the enterprise. As corporations accelerate technology adoption timelines to meet the demands of a remote workforce, cybersecurity practices and investments are evolving to secure employees and corporate assets in remote work environments. After diving into key aspects of zero trust, we walk through the recent Twitter security incident and analyze the event through the lens of zero trust. We wrap by discussing the evolving trends for the C-suite security mindset and how these ideas

Identity Theft Protection in 2020 – CF062 2020/04/23, 05:44
Identity Theft Protection in 2020 – CF062

This week on Cyber Frontiers Jim and Christian explore how identity theft monitoring services continue to evolve in 2020 to include protection beyond traditional monitoring capabilities. We evaluate how effective these services have been historically, how the business model is shifting, and what the average consumer can expect in trying to increase overall security. We line up the discussion with historical anecdotes on social security, FTC litigations, and statistics on consumer theft at large. It’s a new spin on an old topic with many touch points to previous episodes, and contains food for thought on effective measures to increase security

COVID-19 Data Analytics – CF061

This week on Cyber Frontiers Christian and Jim tackle the technology shaping society amidst the Coronavirus (COVID-19). We dive into the health (and growth) of the internet backbone, working from home, and distance learning to name a few. We then switch gears into discussing how data and analytic capabilities behind the virus tricked into the mainstream and is now widely available to society at large to make well informed decisions. We specifically highlight the importance of accurate data visualizations to not skew good data, and highlight Corona Data Scraper as a model of open-source, scalable, accurate data analytics and visualizations

Adversarial Machine Learning – CF060

This week on Cyber Frontiers Christian and Jim dive into ‘jedi mind tricks’ of AI, better known as adversarial machine learning. We narrate stories that tell tales of fooling the common systems that humans have come to rely on today, from maps to self driving cars, to airport scanners and identification systems. We discuss the growing surface area for cyber physical attacks, and the lack of general purpose solutions and proofs needed to tackle securing machine learning algorithms. We tie together IoT, AI, and ML technologies on the cyber frontier with a new security perspective not analyzed prior on the

Security Education with Cyber Skyline – CF059

This week on Cyber Frontiers Christian and Jim interview Franz Payer, CEO of Cyber Skyline (cyberskyline.com) to discuss their platform for training and developing the next generation of security professionals in the industry. We discuss the current challenges in the security education market and explore where Cyber Skyline fills a critical gap across three products that help first-time participants and security practitioners alike up their infosec ability. We also take a look at the growing market segment for cyber education and discuss the evolution of Cyber Skyline into the company it is today. We cover the trends that are evident

Quantum Supremacy and the Cryptology Time Machine – CF058 2019/11/10, 06:02
Quantum Supremacy and the Cryptology Time Machine – CF058

This week on Cyber Frontiers Christian and Jim recap the latest major development in quantum research with Google’s “Quantum Supremacy” milestone. We review the headline narratives and compare today’s quantum progress with where we and others expected it to be. We delve into the tangentially related topic of cryptography, quickly leading to a walk through time of where secure computing has been and where it could be heading looking forward. Scattered throughout we bring in what it all means for the average guy, and even get some time to relate it all back to… ham radios?  Cyber Frontiers is

Cyber Anecdotes: A Tale of Worms, Shared Security, and More – CF057

This week on Cyber Frontiers Christian and Jim recap security highlights from the past six weeks. We take a dive into the latest security challenges facing Windows 10, review the buzz around the Capital One breach, and jump into a variety of new tech from cell phone apps to detect pump skimmers to IBM’s unusual announcement of a blockchain-based web browser. We pack interesting anecdotes on the security landscape into an hour you won’t want to miss.

The Manifestation of New Exploitation – CF056

This week on Cyber Frontiers we catch up on some of the latest exploitations and availability drops on the web. We kick off with a discussion of the release of the TCP SACK panic as a new mechanism for DDoS via TCP protocol. We then cover a spectrum of relevant security news with the Microsoft OS product line to round off our security deep dives. On the availability side, we recap the Target outage and the Google Cloud Outage and what it means for consumers. We round things off with some healthy skepticism of Facebook’s new Libra crypto-currency. And as

Data Breach SecOps, Reputations, and IoT Security – CF055

This week on Cyber Frontiers Christian and Jim catch up on cyber anecdotes from our listeners! We start with a deep dive on the data breach website haveibeenpwned.com — and discuss ways users can leverage the data and APIs to reduce their surface area and take advantage of security best practice. From here we tangent onto corporate reputations and polling data, IoT device security, and more! We thread a needle of seemingly disjoint anecdotes into a show that has something for everyone.
