This week?s sponsor interview is with Casey Ellis of Bugcrowd. It?s an interesting chat with Casey this week. He was at the Billington cyber conference a couple of weeks ago and he had a bunch of interesting discussions there with people in the aerospace sector.
Between recent Black Hat presentations on 787 security and the trouble Boeing has had with it?s 737-MAX, software security and resiliency is all of a sudden on the agenda in aerospace.

The Soap Box podcast series is a fully sponsored podcast series we do here at Risky.Biz, and that means that everyone you hear in it paid to be featured.
This edition of the Soap Box podcast is brought to you by AttackIQ and in in it we talk to its CISO and VP of customer success Chris Kennedy. And we?ll be discussing a topic of that frankly should be talked about a bit more: the MITRE ATT&CK framework.
We also talk about attack simulation and which security controls are most commonly and catastrophically misconfigured. If you?re a CISO you?ll like this one.Show notes More Security Endpoint Tech Isn't Always Better | Decipher AttackIQ Platform, continuous validation of your security control.

This week?s sponsor guest is Ryan Kalember, EVP of cybersecurity strategy with Proofpoint. Ryan is stopping by this week to touch on a couple of topics. He?ll tell us why Proofpoint didn?t attribute a recent malware campaign targeting US utilities to APT10 despite there being some pretty APT10-like tradecraft used in that particular campaign.
He?ll also talk a bit about how thread hijacking is a giant pain in the ass. That?s where attackers take over a mailbox, then just jump right in replying to existing mail threads. Detecting that is hard, of course, because it?s internal mail. It?s a great little mixed bag interview.

We used to think of companies like Bugcrowd as offering a very simple service: managed bug bounties. But these days that?s a bit too simplistic. All the ?bounty? companies are offering more comprehensive and specific products these days. In this edition of the Soap Box podcast Bugcrowd CTO Casey Ellis joins the show to talk through what the future looks like in crowdsourced security. Matching individual hackers? skills to individual gigs and launching new services like Bugcrowd for Marketplaces will be a big part of that future.

This podcast is brought to you by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, and it?s the second in a series of podcasts we?re doing that are all about cyber policy.
The Foundation funds a lot of interesting people and work in the cybersecurity space. So the idea behind this podcast series is pretty simple: we talk to Hewlett?s grant recipients, or experts in Hewlett?s network, about pressing policy issues and turn those conversations into podcasts. The whole idea is to get some policy perspectives out there among the Risky Business audience, which, funnily enough, includes a lot of policymakers.
In this podcast we?re speaking with Katherine Charlet. She currently serves as the director of the Technology and International Affairs Program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Prior to joining Carnegie, Kate served as the deputy assistant secretary of defence for cyber policy, where she managed the development of US Department of Defence cyber policy and strategy, its development of cyber capabilities, and the expansion of its international relationships.
This conversation essentially covers what the state of affairs is when it comes to militaries and their actions in the cyber domain. It was only a few weeks ago that reports claimed the United States government launched a cyber attack against Iranian weapons systems. We?ll hear from Kate about what she thinks that all means, and then we?re going to talk about all sorts of stuff really ? the blurring of the line between what warrants a law enforcement response versus a military response, what the path to this situation looked like, so on and so on. But I kicked things off by asking Kate to tell us what this concept of ?defending forward? actually means. In the last couple of years we?ve heard that term bandied about by all sorts of people, but everyone seems to have a different definition. Here, Kate shares her more definitive definition.

Soap Box isn?t the regular, weekly show we do at Risky.Biz, if you?re looking for that, just scroll one podcast back in your feed or on the Risky Business website.
Soap Box is a fully sponsored podcast series we do where vendors pay to come on and talk about research they?ve done, products they?ve launched, whatever.
This edition of Soap Box is a particularly good one. Ryan Kalember is EVP of cybersecurity strategy at Proofpoint and he?s our guest in this edition. Ryan was on the show a little while back talking about the concept of VAPs ? very attacked people. In this interview he?s going to expand on that.
It?s one thing to know that some of your key people are being attacked, but let?s take it one step further. Of those people, who among them is most likely to actually do something like click an untrusted link? What do we know about those users that can tell us how at-risk they are, based on how frequently they?re attacked, and also how likely they are to engage with phishing attempts or dodgy attachments? And if they ARE a risky user, what can you do about that? Measuring risk is only useful if you can do something about it.
Adam Boileau is along this week to discuss the week?s security news. We cover:US mayors agree: no more paying off ransomware crews BitPoint exchange loses $32m in cryptocurrency FinSpy is back, big time Chinese AV companies won?t flag government malware US security companies free to help political campaigns with discounted services, products Facebook to pay $5bn privacy fine with money from its spare pants Much, much more
Assetnote?s Shubham Shah also joins the news segment to dish on the Zoom RCE bug he and his team found back in March.
This week?s sponsor is Kasada, an Australian company that runs a bot filtering service. Kasada is a relatively new company but they?re kicking some pretty serious goals here in Australia and are now pushing into other markets like the USA. But instead of supplying us with one of their people, they suggested we interview one of their customers - REA Group CSO and head of platform Craig Templeton.
REA Group runs realestate.com.au, Australia?s biggest real estate listings website. They had all sorts of trouble with content scrapers, bots causing service interruptions, cred stuffing, you name it. In the end they went with Kasada to solve their bot problems and Craig pops by this week to talk about the issues they were having and to sing Kasada?s praises. Getting a reference customer to speak publicly is a Herculean task, so full credit to Kasada for making this one happen. If you operate a website that pushes a lot of traffic you?ll want to hear that interview.Show notes US mayors group adopts resolution not to pay any more ransoms to hackers | ZDNet Monroe College Hit With Ransomware, $2 Million Demanded Bitpoint cryptocurrency exchange hacked for $32 million | ZDNet The developers of the notorious FinSpy spyware are innovating ? and thriving Chinese Antivirus Companies Don?t Flag Chinese Border Malware - VICE Why Cyber Command?s latest warning is a win for the government's information sharing efforts Congressional pressure builds for White House to share classified cyber authorizations FEC: Campaigns Can Use Discounted Cybersecurity Services ?

This week?s show is brought to you by our lovely friends at Signal Sciences. I guess you?d call them a next generation WAF. Signal Sciences co-founder and CTO Zane Lackey will be along in this week?s sponsor interview to plug their new cloud-based WAF product, and also to have a chat about a trend he?s seeing at non-security conferences ? more high quality security content.A Zoom Flaw Gives Hackers Easy Access to Your Webcam | WIRED British Airways fined $229 million under GDPR for data breach tied to Magecart Automated Magecart Campaign Hits Over 960 Breached Stores Marriott faces $123 million GDPR fine in the UK for last year's data breach | ZDNet Huawei staff and Chinese military have deep links, study claims Conspiracyland: The Russian connection to Seth Rich conspiracies US Coast Guard warns about malware designed to disrupt ships' computer systems | ZDNet US Cyber Command issues alert about hackers exploiting Outlook vulnerability | ZDNet Someone Is Spamming and Breaking a Core Component of PGP?s Ecosystem - VICE Apple reveals App Store takedown demands by governments | TechCrunch ICE mined driver?s license photos for facial recognition | TechCrunch London Police Facial Recognition ?Fails 80% Of The Time And Must Stop Now?

As regular listeners know, this isn?t the weekly Risky Biz news and current affairs show, if you want that, scroll back in the podcast feed to the previous podcast. This is a Soap Box edition, a solely sponsored podcast series we do here at Risky Biz where vendors pay us to come on to the show to talk about, well, whatever they want, really.
We?ve heard Duo Security talking about WebAuthn, we?ve got one with Proofpoint coming up that?s about insights they?ve gleaned from filtering such ridiculous amounts of email.
But in this edition, Garret Grajek from BlackBerry Cylance will be along to talk about its new product, Cylance Persona. This latest product is kinda out of the box, it?s a machine learning classifier that you install on the endpoint that learns what the typical user behaviour looks like. Once the observed user behaviour starts diverging from what?s expected, it can perform actions ? like kicking up for 2fa, locking the user out, whatever you want, really.
It?s a novel approach to dealing with compromised endpoints. Two factor authentication is great, but if your endpoints are hosed that doesn?t really count for much. And that?s really what this new gear is about.
Adam Boileau is along this week to discuss the week?s security news. We cover:NYTimes reports USA is getting all up in Russia?s grids Kremlin not happy CYBERCOM targets Iranian rocket control and APT crews TRITON attackers target US grid Turla completes hostile takeover of Oilrig Reuters publishes huge feature on Cloudhopper/APT10 China pwns global telcos, targets key subscribers FVEY owns Yandex Tourists entering Xinjiang now have mobile malware installed at border Florida city governments having a bad time Much, much more!
This week?s edition of Risky Business is brought to you by Senetas. They make layer 2 encryption tech, but they?ve also got a content disarm and reconstruction play now, Votiro, as well as their safe file sharing platform SureDrop. But we?re sticking with encryption in this week?s sponsor interview. Senetas CTO Julian Fay will be along a bit later to talk about his trip to the International Crypto Module Conference. He?ll fill us in on what the agenda was there ? lots of talk about quantum resistant crypto and also some talk about streamlining various certification regimes.U.S. Escalates Online Attacks on Russia?s Power Grid - The New York Times Kremlin Warns of Cyberwar After Report of U.S. Hacking Into Russian Power Grid - The New York Times The Highly Dangerous 'Triton' Hackers Have Probed the US Grid | WIRED US wants to isolate power grids with 'retro' technology to limit cyber-attacks | ZDNet Wait, What The Hell Is Going On With Huawei Now? | Gizmodo Australia The Legal Context for CYBERCOM?s Reported Operations Against Iran - Lawfare Iran executes ?defence ministry contractor? over spying for CIA Iranian Hackers Launch a New US-Targeted Campaign as Tensions Mount | WIRED Nation-sponsored hackers likely carried out hostile takeover of rival group?s servers | Ars Technica Stealing Clouds Microsoft to Require Multi-Factor Authentication for Cloud Solution Providers ?

This is the first edition of a new series of podcasts we?re doing here at Risky.Biz that will focus on cyber policy issues. The Hewlett Foundation approached us a while back to see if we?d be interested in doing this series we jumped at the opportunity.
The Foundation funds a lot of interesting people and work in the cybersecurity space. So the idea is pretty simple: we can talk to some of Hewlett?s grant recipients or experts in its network about pressing policy issues and turn those conversations into podcasts. The whole idea is to get some policy perspectives out there among the Risky Business audience, which, funnily enough, includes a lot of policy people.
Our first cab off the rank is this interview with Jim Baker. He joined the Department of Justice in 1990 and rose through the ranks to become the FBI general counsel in January 2014, a position he held until December 2017. So of course he was running all things legal for the FBI during the Apple-FBI dispute over a locked iPhone 5C recovered from the gunman responsible for the San Bernardino shooting.
Baker was the US Government?s point man on all things encryption, taking stances that outraged technologists and reinvigorated a policy debate that had ? at least to a degree ? stagnated for years. These days, Jim Baker serves as Director of the R Street think tank?s National Security and Cybersecurity Program.
This interview focusses on the so-called encryption wars. The FBI and other law enforcement/intelligence agencies want better access to encrypted material, while technologists say that?s impossible to accomplish without introducing unacceptable risks into the technology ecosystem. Baker shares his view on the topic.
The Australian government law enforcement and intelligence agencies guide to the Assistance and Access Act, which is mentioned in the introduction to the podcast, can be found here. (Ironically enough, served over http!)
PLEASE NOTE: Jim Baker joined our meeting via a phone call, so the audio quality here isn?t up to our usual standards. Sorry about that!

This week?s sponsor interview with David Warburton of F5 Networks. You know F5 as a blinky-light box manufacturer. Load balancers, SSL termination, that sort of stuff. Not exactly a growth industry at the moment, so they?re pivoting.
They?ve dropped $670m on NGINX ? f5 now owns the NGINX company ? and they?re making all sorts of moves in the appsec space. That interview is mostly about F5?s business, but I found it interesting because what do you do when you?re an $8bn company that makes data-centre equipment and that industry starts going into decline?In Baltimore and Beyond, a Stolen N.S.A.
