      Risky Business #495 -- Russian Internet users are having a bad time


      We’re still running in a trimmed down format this week, sorry about that. Regular listeners would know we’ve been dealing with some unexpected stuff over here in the house of Business, but the good news is things have settled down and we’re actually back home after more than three weeks away. Things are looking good for a return to a full format show either next week or the week after. But don’t worry, there’s plenty of good stuff in this week’s news segment with Mark Piper,...

      Risky Business #494 -- Cisco customers have a bad week, plus a deep dive on WebAuthn


      Regular listeners would know Risky Business is just running the news and sponsor segments at the moment so there’s no feature interview in this week’s show. But that’s fine because we’ve got plenty to get through in the news segment with Adam Boileau. Then we’ve got a killer sponsor interview for you this week with Nick Steele and James Barclay of Duo Security. They’re here to talk about WebAuthn. It’s the new authentication spec currently going through the W3C process. Bot...

      Risky Business #493 -- SWIFT, pipeline attacks, Chrome's AV feature and more


      This week’s show is just the news segment and sponsor interview. But, as always, there’s plenty to discuss with our news guest Adam Boileau! In this week’s sponsor interview we’ll be hearing from Timothy Keeler from Remediant. Remediant is a small but growing company that does privileged account management stuff, but they’re not a password vault.

      Risky Biz Soap Box: Network detection is dead! Long live network detection!


      This Soap Box edition is brought to you by ICEBRG. ICEBRG is in the business of network-based response and detection. In simple terms they drop a box on your network that strips network metadata and shunts it up to their cloud for analysis. This allows incident responders in particular to really, really speed up their investigations. We know that a lot of internet traffic is encrypted these days, and that’s made some people take their eye off the network ball. The focus and ...

      Risky Business #492 -- Thomas Rid on sloppy active measures

This week we hear from Thomas Rid, Professor of Strategic Studies at Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies. We’re having a conversation inspired by the latest spectacular Russian intelligence blunder: a Russian SIGINT operator exposing their GRU headquarters’ IP address because they forgot ...

      Risky Business #491 -- The biggest infosec news week we've ever seen


      What a week, huh? As you’ll soon hear it’s been an absolute monster week for infosec news. Top of the list is the Cambridge Analytica scandal. For those who haven’t had time to catch up on this one, a former staffer from the data analytics firm has given some interviews in which he says the company scraped 50 million Facebook profiles and used that data to target US voters with political messages on behalf of Donald Trump’s campaign. Obviously this has made people feel quite ...

And we’ve actually got some great pitches for you today. We’ll be hearing from Rapid7 first – they’ve developed a new addition to their Insight platform – Insight Phish.

      Risky Business #490 -- North Korea, "cyber norms" and diplomacy


      On this week’s show we’re taking a look at how an acceleration in 24-carat bonkers state-sponsored hacking is leading to calls at senior levels of government for some actual norms to be established. We’ve got Russia hacking the planet with NotPetya, North Korea owning central banks and cryptocurrency exchanges, China owning the CCleaner supply chain and… well.. it’s all getting a bit much. So in this week’s feature segment we’re going to zero in on one norm-breaking country,...

      Risky Business #489 -- (Deep) Fake News


      On this week’s show we’re chatting with Professor of Law at the University of Maryland Danielle Citron about an article she co-authored on so-called “deep fake” videos.
