Play • 43 min


This week is a TREAT for you Down the Security Rabbithole Podcast listeners. Before she does her keynote on the topic, you'll get to hear Tarah Wheeler's take on the graying lines of privacy, security, and ethics. Just because we can ... does that mean we should?

Lots of interesting discussions, and some totally nerdy and pedantic references you'll want to listen to a few times.

Week 3 of OpenText's Enfuse Conference 2020 is kicking off with Tarah's keynote, and if you haven't checked in, or signed on, maybe this will convince you! Give her keynote a listen...

Unfortunately, when you agree to a license you are agreeing to the text of that license document and not to a FAQ. If the text of that license document is ambiguous, then so are your rights and responsibilities under that license. Should your compliance to that license come before a judge, it’s their interpretation of those rights and responsibilities that will hold sway. This ambiguity puts your organisation at risk.” Doubling down on open, Part II | Elastic Blog - license change affecting Elastic Search and Kibana MongoDB did something similar in 2018: mjg59 | Initial thoughts on MongoDB's new Server Side Public License (dreamwidth.org) Hacker News Discussion: MongoDB switches up its open source license | Hacker News (ycombinator.com) @vmbrasseur: (1) VM (Vicky) Brasseur on Twitter: "With today's relicensing to #SSPL, Elasticsearch & Kibana are no longer #OpenSource but are instead business risks: https://t.co/XNx2EMLNfH" / Twitter (1) Adam Jacob on Twitter: "Yeah, come on - how can this be "doubling down on open"?

But we're doubling down on open!" / Twitter [License-review] Approval: Server Side Public License, Version 2 (SSPL v2) (opensource.org) “We continue to believe that the SSPL complies with the Open Source Definition and the four essential software freedoms. However, based on its reception by the members of this list and the greater open source community, the community consensus required to support OSI approval does not currently appear to exist regarding the copyleft provision of SSPL. Thus, in order to be respectful of the time and efforts of the OSI board and this list’s members, we are hereby withdrawing the SSPL from OSI consideration.” (could be ‘open-source’, but negative feedback on mailing lists and elsewhere made the remove it from consideration from OSI) Open Source license requirements: The Open Source Definition | Open Source Initiative What does this mean? If you have products that utilize ElasticSearch/MongoDB/Kibana in some way, talk to your legal teams to find out if you need to divest your org from them.

Click This Link to Fail a Phishing Test
All links and images for this episode can be found on CISO Series (https://cisoseries.com/click-this-link-to-fail-a-phishing-test/) Our phishing tests are designed to make you feel bad about yourself for clicking a link. We're starting to realize these tests are revealing how insensitive we are towards our employees. This episode is hosted by me, David Spark (@dspark), producer of CISO Series and Mike Johnson. Our guest this week is Yaron Levi, (@0xL3v1) former CISO, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas City. Thanks to this week’s podcast sponsor, Stackrox StackRox is the industry’s first Kubernetes-native security platform that enables organizations to securely build, deploy, and run cloud-native applications anywhere. The StackRox Kubernetes Security Platform delivers lower operational cost, reduced operational risk, and greater developer productivity through a Kubernetes-native approach that supports built-in security across the entire software development lifecycle. Is this a cybersecurity disinformation campaign? On reddit, an explosive discussion formed around a ComputerWeekly.com article by Saj Huq of Plexal about the importance of making disinformation a security issue. The problem though has primarily fallen into the hands of social media companies mostly because that's where disinformation spreads. While we've seen disinformation being used as a political tool, for businesses, it can tarnish your corporate brand, consumer trust, and ultimately the value of your product. It's also used in phishing campaigns. Breaches are compromising your data. Disinformation is questioning the validity and value of data without even stealing it. How do you combat that? Are we having communication issues? We're recording this episode shortly after GoDaddy sent its infamous phishing test email that promised employees a $650 bonus check. Those who clicked on the email were rewarded with additional security training. It took the entire Internet to point out how insensitive this was, GoDaddy's response was "We understand some employees were upset by the phishing attempt and felt it was insensitive, for which we have apologized." They argued that while it may be insensitive, these types of well-timed phishing emails do happen. A lot of people do not like phishing tests and Yaron has proven that if creative enough, anyone can fall for a phish. How can the company and security be more sensitive to employees, respect them, while also letting them know they may receive a malicious email just like this? "What's Worse?!" An international What's Worse conundrum. How do you go about discovering new security solutions? Julia Wool, Evolve Security said, "I just finished a Splunk course and wanted to explore other SIEM platforms and I am having a difficult time understanding how an enterprise should choose a vendor in this space. I couldn't imagine being the guy at an enterprise that has to consider all these different vendors that seem to be doing the same thing." Julia brings up a really good concern: If you were completely green, didn't have CISO connections, and were going to choose a SIEM for the first time how would you go about determining your needs and then researching and deciding? What sources would you use? And how do you limit this effort so you're not overwhelmed? There’s got to be a better way to handle this Brian Fanny, Orbita, asks, "Vendor scope can change over time within a project or the start of another and harder to control than the initial evaluations. They start off when non-critical requirements/needs eventually grow into handing assets of greater value and/or gaining access to more critical systems. How do you keep up with vendor/project scope creep from the security sidelines?"

Episode 115 - Podcast Takeover with Carole Theriault
The tables have turned on Ron and Chris this episode and they are interviewed by guest host, Carole Theriault! Besides being a two-time guest on the Hacker Valley Studio Podcast, Carole is producer and host of the Smashing Security Podcast and Sticky Pickles podcast. Carole put together 7 serious questions and 7 funny questions to interview Ron and Chris. Question #1 - How did you get into podcasting? Ron - describes his entry into podcasting as a surprise. Ron had set up a studio at his home in San Jose, California with the intention to create YouTube videos. When Chris relocated to the area, he suggested that the two get on the microphones and have a conversation to see where it goes - Where the two began speaking about Cybersecurity Alchemy. Chris - Before moving to Silicon Valley, Chris experimented with content creation on Instagram and worked with professionals to document his weight loss journey. This experiment went well but left Chris hoping to make a greater impact through content creation. Question #2 - What are the most surprising lessons you learned from podcasting Carole begins by describing her most surprising lesson is the sheer amount of work. Chris was surprised about all of the aspects that go into a quality production. For example, mastering the sound of the podcast. Ron describes the most surprising lesson being the work that goes into show notes and the conversion of full-length topics into bite sized nuggets. Question #3 - What trait do you like most in your podcast partner Ron - Chris’ accountability and availability. We meet together daily during the week to discuss goals, challenges, and collaboration opportunities. When help is needed, Chris is consistently there to help. Chris - Ron’s calm, understated competitiveness nature. The competitive nature pushes both of us to get better everyday. Question #4 - What do you worry most about when creating an episode of Hacker Valley Studio? Chris - Capturing great quality audio. During post-production, we can fix nearly everything like “ahs”, “ums”, awkward pauses but not poor quality audio. Carole can relate to this technical difficulty as she has experienced difficulties with hearing feedback from internal microphones on her podcasts Ron - HVS has had over a hundred episodes and around 10% of the guests have never been on a podcast. When recording with the 10% that have not been on a podcast before Ron’s main goal and concern is to ensure that the guest is comfortable. Creating an environment where guests can share their story and as.king great questions creates raving fans of our content through our listeners and guests Question #5 - Who does more of the work on the podcast? Ron - Chris is the GOAT for the HVS podcast. In the very beginning, Ron said that he did most of the work. In the beginning Ron was editing the video and audio for the podcast but at some point, Chris became curious about the audio editing process and fell in love with the process and built a strong foundation for rapidly increasing the quality of Hacker Valley Studio content. Follow up to Question #5 - Chris do you appreciate about Ron’s contribution to the podcast? Chris - Our chemistry. Episode one shows our chemistry because even though we did not have any experience podcasting, we still had a great conversational flow. It didn’t take anytime for us to build this chemistry up because Ron is able to read expressions and see where I’m going with questions and answers. Ron has always been able to pick up where I left off and bring up topics that I may forget. Question #6 - Which episode of HVS sticks out most in your mind and why? Chris - Episode 40 with Daniel Meade. This episode started out with us speaking with Daniel about AppSec but had many turns where we got to experience Daniel’s authentic humor and moments of growth throughout his life. This episode helped shape the future of Hacker Valley Studio. Ron - Episode 104 with Robin Black. This episode has very little connection with technology and cybersecurity but focuses on the auxiliary skills that make practitioners at any craft great. Robin is fascinated with his work and crossing the chasm to gain expertise from similar or related fields. Question #7 - What does success mean for Hacker Valley Studio? Ron - Having fun during the process. Chris and I are extremely successful at this point because we’ve been enjoying creating the process everyday. We are lucky enough to speak to experts, work with vocal coaches, and learn how to make quality productions each week. Chris - The impact on the listener. We’ve received emails and messages on social media from listeners that have thanked us for helping them get into cybersecurity and promoted within their field. We’ve been able to create our own journey and be part of others journeys. Moments During the Podcast 0:00 - Intro 1:22 - Carole Theriault takes over Hacker Valley Studio! 2:50 - How Chris and Ron got into podcasting 5:06 - Would you rather be 8 foot tall or have eight feet? 5:55 - What are the most surprising lessons you learned from podcasting? 8:13 - If you were on a desert island, what luxury item would you bring? 9:10 - What trait do you like most in your podcast partner? 11:17 - What's your favorite thing to do outside of work and family responsibilities? 14:07 - What do you worry most about when creating an episode of Hacker Valley Studio? 18:55 - What is one thing any friend or family member could do to make you laugh or smile? 20:28 - Who does more of the work on Hacker Valley Studio podcast? 24:50 - Who would play you in a movie? 27:30 - Which episode of HVS sticks out most in your mind and why? 37:16 - How would you define success for Hacker Valley Studio?
