Cyber Security Sauna brings you expert guests with sizzling insight into the latest information security trends and topics. F-Secure's Janne Kauhanen hosts the show to make sure you know all you need to about the hotter-than-ever infosec game. Join us as we sweat out the hot topics in security.
To Ban or Not to Ban? Ransomware Payment Regulation
Ransomware payment amounts have skyrocketed over the past year. As threat actors keep getting richer, they have more resources to fuel their operations. Many people argue that the way to discourage ransomware is to implement an outright ban on ransom payments. Is this suggestion idealistic or realistic? How would such a ban affect companies, and what are the alternatives? Päivi Tynninen of the Finnish National Cybersecurity Center and Jordan LaRose of F-Secure join us to share their views.
When AI Goes Awry
AI and machine learning are shaping our online experience, from product recommendations, to customer support chatbots, to virtual assistants like Siri and Alexa. These are powerful tools for enabling business - but powerful doesn't mean perfect. F-Secure data scientist Samuel Marchal and security consultant Jason Johnson join Janne for this episode to talk about some of the security issues with machine learning and how to address them.
Ransomware Incident Response and the Role of Readiness
The fallout from a ransomware attack is every organization's worst nightmare. But it doesn't necessarily have to be, if you can respond to an attack effectively. As our guests explain, there are things companies can be doing in advance to ensure a proactive response to ransomware, and to reduce the impact to the company. Incident response experts Jordan LaRose and Matt Lawrence of F-Secure join the show to discuss.
How to Secure Networks and Influence People
The role of a chief information security officer demands technical knowledge, but it also requires soft skills of leading and influencing. So how can CISOs get their security message across to boards, the business, employees and the security team? Joining Janne are two CISOs, Erka Koivunen of F-Secure and Chani Simms, co-founder of Meta Defence Labs and founder of SHe CISO Exec community, to discuss communication and the role of emotional intelligence in promoting a culture of security at every level.
Challenges in Cloud Security
Cloud computing was one of the last decade's most transformative technologies. It helped organizations launch exciting new applications and services, as well as innovate the way they operate. But moving critical parts of IT infrastructure and operations outside of organizations' perimeters has significant security implications. The cloud is definitely here to stay, so security consultants Laura Kankaala and Nick Jones join Janne to talk about the cloud security challenges organizations face.
Looking at Phishing Through the Intrusion Kill Chain
Phishing is the number one vector leading to data breaches. It's an easy, effective way for attackers to trick users into giving up credentials or running malicious code. While organizations cannot stop motivated attackers from trying to phish their employees, they can make it harder to succeed. F-Secure's director of consulting, Riaan Naudé, joins the show to talk about how companies can combat phishing by addressing the earlier stages of the intrusion kill chain.
