      Snake Oilers 6 part 2: Proofpoint on cred phishing, Exabeam defines next-gen SIEM


      Snake Oilers is a wholly sponsored podcast series we a few times a year here at Risky Biz HQ. The idea is we get a bunch of vendors together and they pitch their tech in a straightforward way. Less “stops advanced cyber threats” and more “here’s what our stuff does and how it works”. You’re hearing this instead of a weekly show because I am currently on a beach somewhere tropical. We’ve got two vendors in this edition of ‘Oilers: next-gen SIEM platform company Exabeam and e...

      Snake Oilers 6 part 1: InsightIDR from Rapid7, whitelisting with Airlock Digital and testing your SOC personnel with AttackIQ


      First up in this edition of Snake Oilers we speak with Rapid7. Listeners of the regular show would have heard me talk about their UserInsight software for years. That’s because I knew people who used it and they swore by it. UserInsight was user and entity behaviour analytics (UEBA) software that was massively ahead of its time. It was very good at spotting weird things happening on your network when it comes to dumped or compromised creds popping up in weird places. Well, I...

We look at the latest in the crypto debate, breaches, bugs and more! We’ll hear from Tom Uren of Australia’s Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI) on the Trisis side of things. Tom worked in an interesting place in Australia’s defence department b...

      Risky Biz Soap Box: Kill your own meat with EclecticIQ


      Soap Box is not our regular weekly show, it’s the monthly podcast here at Risky Biz HQ where vendors pay to come on to the show to talk about what it is they actually do. Before EclecticIQ sponsored this edition, to be honest, I didn’t really know much about them. All I knew is that their positioning was very much around “threat intelligence,” which, as regular listeners would know, are two words that are usually followed by “derpa derpa” on the regular Risky Business podcas...

      Risky Business #500 -- Web asset discovery is getting useful


      In this week’s feature interview we’ll be chatting with Shubham Shah and his friend Lord Tuskington about continuous asset discovery’s impact on testing methodologies. Shubs has worked as both a pentester and as a very successful bug bounty hunter. In fact he’s built an entire asset discovery platform that he and his buddies have been using to rip crazy amounts of cash out of bounty programs over the last few years and he’s turning that platform into a product. So I wanted to...
