AI Risks, Application Performance - Padraic O'Reilly, Shibu George - BSW #339
Released on January 26, 2023, the NIST AI RMF Framework was developed through a consensus-driven, open, transparent, and collaborative process that included a Request for Information, several draft versions for public comments, multiple workshops, and other opportunities to provide input. It is intended to build on, align with, and support AI risk management efforts by others. Padraic O'Reilly, Founder and Chief Innovation Officer at CyberSaint, joins BSW to discuss why AI risks are a unique challenge and how they can impact both organizations and society. Without proper controls, AI systems can amplify, perpetuate, or exacerbate inequitable or undesirable outcomes for individuals and communities. With proper controls, AI systems can mitigate and manage inequitable outcomes. This segment is sponsored by CyberSaint . Visit https://securityweekly.com/cybersaint to learn more about them!

Zero-Trust is Meaningless if Your Cryptography is Flakey - Vincent Berk - ESW #349
Legacy systems are riddled with outdated and unreliable cryptographic standards. So much so that recent proprietary research found 61 percent of the traffic was unencrypted, and up to 80% of encrypted network traffic has some defeatable flaw in its encryption No longer can enterprises take their cryptography for granted, rarely evaluated or checked. Knowing when, where and what type of cryptography is used throughout the enterprise and by which applications is critical to your overall security policy, zero-trust approach, and risk management strategy. After all, zero-trust is meaningless if your cryptography isn't working. Segment Resources: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20231030166159/en/Proprietary-Research-from-Quantum-Xchange-Shows-the-Dreadful-State-of-Enterprise-Cryptography https://www.forbes.com/sites/forbestechcouncil/people/vincentberk/?sh=3d88055852c1 This segment is sponsored by Quantum Xchange. Visit https://securityweekly.com/quantumxchange to learn more about them! This week, we discussed how a quick (minutes) and cheap ($15 a pop) fake ID service creates VERY convincing IDs that are possibly good enough to fool ID verification services, HR, and a load of other scenarios where it's common to share images of an ID. Kudos to 404Media's work there. In the security market, we discuss who might be the first cybersecurity unicorn to go public in 2024, Oasis Security and Tenchi's funding rounds, Protect AI's acquisition of Laiyer AI and their FOSS project, LLM Guard. We discussed the seemingly inevitable M&A activity as unfunded security startups NEED to find a sale. Ross Haleliuk had an interesting LinkedIn post that goes deeper on this topic. Finally, we discussed Tyler's observation that Palo Alto Networks did the seemingly impossible - increased their valuation from $19B to over $100B in 5 years, despite having to weather a pandemic and market downturn along the way! Ryan pointed out that PANW joined the S&P 500 somewhere along the way - a watershed moment for them. We discussed Bluesky and how it's likely too little too late when it comes to building back the community we lost when much of the InfoSec community left Twitter. We also discussed a cybersecurity training scammer, Daniel Miessler's new Fabric tool, AnyDesk getting hacked, The Real Shim Shady vuln, new (voluntary) cybersecurity goals for healthcare, and the lack of toothbrush-enabled DDoS attacks!

You Can’t Defend What You Can’t Define - Sergey Bratus - PSW #816
As a computer-smitten middle-schooler in the former Soviet Union in the 1970s, to his current and prominent role in the cybersecurity research community, Bratus aims to render the increasingly prevalent and perilous software, hardware, and networks in our lives much safer to use. His fascination with computer security started for real in the 1990s as a mathematics graduate student when a computer he was programming and responsible for at Northeastern University in Boston was taken over by a hacker. That experience set him on his life’s mission to learn as much as he can about the vulnerabilities of software and hardware with the goal of learning how to best minimize or eliminate those vulnerabilities. Noting his embrace of the hacker community for its deep and innovative expertise in this context, Bratus’s portfolio at DARPA could help reduce or entirely remove even some of the most stealthy and unexpected vulnerabilities that reside in software and its logical, computational, and mathematical foundations.
