Sean Martin asks NTT's John Moran: Is there a fine--or blurry--line between detection & remediation?

“What you can’t prevent, you need to detect. Once you detect, you need to respond.”

These are words of wisdom shared by John Moran, Senior Incident Response Analyst at NTT Security during a conversation he had with ITSPmagazine’s editor in chief, Sean Martin, during the recent Black Hat USA 2017. With breach notifications on the rise, its clear that breach response is a top boardroom issue, for organizations of all sizes - small and medium businesses all the way up to the largest of enterprises. Given its importance, Sean Martin wanted to dig in to what a modern incident response plan might look like; who’s involved in the program, and what some of the best practices might look like as we wrap up 2017 and head in to 2018. During their conversation on this topic, John points out that companies are playing catch-up here and that their IR plans not only need to be developed properly, but they need to be tested before a breach happens. What additional wisdom does John share during their chat? Listen to find out.

Brian Knopf from Neustar discusses security and privacy with the Internet of Things with Sean Martin

In this new episode of audio news coming to you from Black Hat USA 2017, Sean Martin connects with Brian Knopf, Senior Director of Security Research & IoT Architect at Neustar. Brian has been involved with the Internet of Things for quite some time and therefore has a ton of insight into how security and privacy are impacted - especially given the numbers and types of connected devices hitting the market each and every day.

Leading off of his work at I am the Cavalry, Brian remains a proponent for a security and privacy rating system, a system that would give consumers and businesses alike an easier means to understand the trade-offs they are making when using these devices. In short, Brian suggests that when we got security, we essentially lost privacy in certain ways… but both are equally important.

We catch a glimpse into Brian’s genius in this short podcast - I hope you enjoy it.
