Cyber: The Fifth Domain of War – Mike Ernst – BSW #262
Land, sea, air, space, and–increasingly–cyber. These are the five domains where war is conducted. In March 2022, CISA and other international cyber agencies issued guidance urging private and public organizations alike to harden their security postures in preparation for cyber fallout. However, to date, the cyber fallout from the conflict has been minor, leaving some questioning the seriousness of the threat. ExtraHop VP of Sales Engineering, Mike Ernst, joins Business Security Weekly for a candid discussion about expected impact on private enterprises, and how business leaders and CISO can use this moment to scrutinize their security posture. This segment is sponsored by ExtraHop Networks. Visit https://securityweekly.com/extrahop to learn more about them!
