    Mark Nunnikhoven: Providing clarity about security. [Cloud strategy] [Career Notes]

    Distinguished Cloud Strategist at Lacework, Mark Nunnikhoven, has gone from taking technology to its limits for his own understanding to providing clarity about security for others. Mark fell in love with his Commodore 128 and once he realized he could bend the machine to his will, it set him on the path to technology. While he had some bumps in the road, dropping out of high school and not following the traditional path in college, Mark did complete his masters in information security. His professional life took him from Canadian public service to the private sector where Mark noted the culture shift was an eye-opening experience. Mark always looks to learn something new and share that with others and that is evidenced as his includes teaching as a facet of his career. We thank Mark for sharing his story with us.

    When big ransomware goes away, where should affiliates go? [Research Saturday]

    When big ransomware goes away, where should affiliates go? [Research Saturday]

    Our guest Doel Santos, Threat Research Analyst at Palo Alto Networks, joins Dave Bittner to talk about Unit 42's work on "Ransomware Groups to Watch: Emerging Threats." As part of Unit 42’s commitment to stop ransomware attacks, they monitor the activity of existing groups, search for dark web leak sites and fresh onion sites, identify up-and-coming players and study tactics, techniques and procedures. During their operations, Unit 42 observed four emerging ransomware groups that are currently affecting organizations and show signs of having the potential to become more prevalent in the future. Doel discusses these (AvosLocker, Hive Ransomware, HelloKitty, and LockBit 2.0) with Dave.
    The research can be found here:

    REvil’s troubles appear to be the work of an international law enforcement operation. Other gangs have noticed, and they’re looking a little spooked, even as they evolve their tactics in a maturing criminal-to-criminal market. Questions are raised about the efficacy of surveillance tool export controls. Caleb Barlow has cyber security considerations for CEOs and boards. Our guest is Mickey Boodeai of Transmit Security on the movement to do away with passwords. And if you liked Y2K, you’re going to love ten-twenty-four.
