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.
