Discussing ways to ensure client success with MDR and discuss the ways organizations hurt MDR efficacy with overly broad global exclusions, poor deployment practices, and poor policy hygiene. This segment is sponsored by Sophos. Visit https://securityweekly.com/sophos to learn more about them! We talk to Chris Sanders today, who has been steeped in the world of SecOps and detection/response for many years. After many years of writing books and training folks in the cybersecurity industry, he started delving into cognitive psychology and educational effectiveness. He leverages this knowledge in the training classes he builds and delivers. Today we'll discuss why it seems like defenders are still failing, despite the security industry largely (and arguably) receiving the resources it has been requesting. In this news segment, we start off by discussing funding, acquisitions, and Ironnet's unfortunate demise. We discuss Gmail's new, extra verifications for sensitive actions and Lockheed Martin's Hoppr SBOM and software supply-chain utility kit. We get into CISA's roadmap to help secure open source software, and their offer to run free vulnerability scans for the United States' 150,000+ water utilities. Then, discussion turns back to some more negative items with Brazil's self-inflicted $11 billion dollar data leak, and the MGM/Caesar's ransomware attacks, which seem like they could have a common attacker and initial attack vector (a shared IT support company, perhaps). We also discuss Microsoft's post mortem on the Storm-0558 attack. Kelly Shortridge wants to know, "why are you logging into production hosts", someone is submitting garbage CVEs, and Mozilla finds that privacy policies from auto manufacturers are a privacy TRAIN WRECK. Finally, we wrap up discussing tools that can detect deepfake audio, as well as the likelihood that this will be the start of a game of leapfrog, as deepfakes get increasingly better over time. And we discuss Delphi's offer to create a 'digital clone' of you that could live on forever, haunting your descendants.
