Becoming the Avengers – SCW #99

Author of "Why CISOs Fail" is joining us today to tell us about the success of his first book as well as introduce us to his forthcoming book, "Security Hippie. Barak is best known for pioneering the concept of the virtual (or fractional) CISO model nearly two decades ago. Over the twenty years since then he has applied that model and strategy to building, managing and counseling security departments across countless and diverse organizations, including MuleSoft, Amplitude Analytics, Livenation/Ticketmaster, StubHub, Barnes and Noble, bebe Stores and many others. The goal of his new book is to convey security concepts in the form of telling stories, so we hope to hear a few examples from him during the course of the interview.

A Good Mission – SCW #96

In the early days of PCI there was an online column called StorefrontBacktalk which focused on retail and technology issues. The column provided valuable insights from various specialists on the interpretation and application of many of the more challenging security requirements found in PCI DSS which was reflected in its tag line, “Techniques, Tools and Tirade about Retail Technology and E-Commerce. The founder of the column, Evan Schuman, is a veteran journalist who has covered a wide range of technology, privacy and legal issues over the past three decades. Evan will give us his take on many of the issues facing the connected world -past, present, and future.

Massive Damage – SCW #95

CISA recently published guidance for how managed service providers (MSPs) should approach security for their operations based on the premise that cyber threat actors are known to target MSPs to reach their customers. MSPs provide remote management of customer IT and end-user systems and generally have direct access to their customers’ networks and data. By exploiting trust relationships in MSP networks, cyber threat actors can gain access to a large number of the victim MSP customers. The CISA Insights publication provides mitigation and hardening guidance for MSPs and their small- and mid-size business customers. By applying this guidance, organizations can protect MSP customer network assets and reduce the risk of successful cyberattacks. Our conversation today will focus on the problems that MSPs and SMBs face in achieving the right level of security for their organizations, satisfy compliance and regulatory requirements, while trying to stay in business.

A Good Crisis – SCW #94

Join us on this episode of SCW for a general discussion about how to do this whole security/compliance thing better; how compliance really needs to come first; how it's all risk-based or should be RGC not GRC; legal and privacy issues/focus - and how they help or hinder the cause; other factors like burnout/gatekeeping/etc. that all contribute to our industry being overly focused/reliant on technology and don't handle the people/process part very well.

Diversity & Equality – SCW #93

With cybersecurity skills already in short supply, the prospect of losing what little workforce there is to pull from to resignations (especially in the context of the ‘Great Resignation’), is a disturbing one. Rick McElroy will speak to the causes of security burnout and the steps organizations need to take to prevent the loss of the precious resource that is security talent. He will share supporting research findings from VMware's latest Global Incident Response Threat Report: Manipulating Reality.

Different Directions – SCW #91

We’re getting closer to the Q1 2022 release of PCI DSS 4.0, which is expected to differ from the current PCI DSS 3.2.1 version in a few key ways. This includes giving organizations more options in how they become compliant, along with customized implementation. In this podcast, Chris Pin, VP of Privacy and Compliance at PKWARE, will discuss what customized implementation means for organizations, additional changes to 4.0, and why they’re important.

And, while PCI 3.2.1 won’t be retired until 2024, it’s a good idea for companies to get started now with their 4.0 compliance strategy. After all, the road to compliance could be a long one, and 2025 will be here before we know it!
