Travis Smith, Principle Security Researcher at Tripwire, continues his work on My Bro the Elk

Travis Smith, Principle Security Researcher at Tripwire, continues his work on My Bro the Elk - working on it in the context of the small and medium sized businesses. Sean Martin, ITSPmagazine's editor-in-chief, originally covered this topic with Travis presenting a session during Black Hat 2015. This article ended up being ITSPmagazine’s first on-publication article.

Travis is now focusing on the SMB market as they are a targeted entity and are often underfunded and understaffed. Travis' work with the new My Bro the Elk combines technologies to create insights, and combines them as part of what he calls the "Sweet Security" offering which monitors network traffic while providing protection as well.

During our conversation, Smith also offers some core best practices, including network segmentation, which is handles virtually with the Sweet Security device. Goodness all around from Travis, for sure.

Craig Young from TripWire talks with Debra Farber about Android TV device security and privacy

A lot of the security and privacy settings we’ve come to know and expect on our Android phones doesn’t seem to be carrying over to Android TV devices available to buy today. In most cases, the device you buy online may never see an official update from its vendor. This doesn’t mean it won’t get updated - the team at TripWire found that these devices are vulnerable to compromise such that they could be maliciously updated with new firmware, turning on the camera and the microphone - essentially for surveillance purposes.

That cause you to pause a bit? It should. Listen to this conversation between The Privacy Pact's Debra Farber as Craig Yound from TripWire's Vulnerability Research Team looks at these IoT security privacy challenges we face as a society.

Joseph Carson, from Thycotic, presents the results of the 2017 State of Cybersecurity Metrics Report

Marco Ciappelli met with Joseph Carson, Chief Security Scientist at Thycotic, to discuss the results of the company’s first annual 2017 State of Cybersecurity Metrics Report,

The report analyzes key findings from a Security Measurement Index (SMI) benchmark Survey of more than 400 global business and security executives around the world.

According to the report, most companies worldwide are failing to measure cybersecurity effectiveness and performance.

More than half of the 400 respondents in the survey, 58 percent, scored an “F” or “D” grade when evaluating their efforts to measure their cybersecurity investments and performance against best practices.

While this sounds bad for big companies it gets even worst when we look at small business. For example: In 60% of the cases they cannot recover from a serious cyber attack.

Listen to this story recorded on the Expo Floor at Black Hat USA 2017 - pardon the background noise.
