    The state of cyber insurance in 2021

    The state of cyber insurance in 2021

    How is it possible for the insurance industry to adapt to a cyber threat landscape that is continuously changing?
    To try to answer that, and explain the evolution the cyber insurance field has gone through the last few years, Robby is joined by Jens Zakarias and Paul Jæger from Riskpoint, a global insurance underwriter agency.
    They dive into how cyber insurance differs from more traditional insurance, and the five things every organisation needs to have in place for an insurance company to even consider them as a client.

    Can threat intelligence be automated?

    Can threat intelligence be automated?

    Can threat intelligence be automated?
    If so, what can be automated, and what should still be left in the hands of human analysts?
    With us today, we have PhD. Martin Eian, Head of R&D in mnemonic. He sits down with Robby to speak about his team’s part in building a security platform to prevent cyber-threats together with nine other European organisations. The research project bringing these organisations together is called SOCCRATES, and is part of the European Union's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation program (https://www.soccrates.eu/).
    Martin describes how the research project aims to semi-automate threat intelligence in a platform for security operations centres (SOCs) and incident response teams, to help them better detect attacks and make the correct decisions on how to handle them.
    He also shares some of his experience with how companies are actually working with threat intelligence today.
    Technical level: 3/5

    Is honesty the best policy in incident response?

    Is honesty the best policy in incident response?

    Luck favours the prepared.
    For this non-technical episode, Robby welcomes someone with a lot of experience working with a particular consequence of security incidents: crisis communication expert Lasse Sandaker-Nielsen. Lasse is a Senior Advisor at First House, one of Norway's largest communications and public affairs agencies, and joins Robby for a discussion on crisis communication best practices from the cybersecurity space, and the most effective ways to respond when you're in crisis mode.
    Lasse also shares some of his communication war stories, and his take on whether or not honesty is in fact the best policy.

    Threat hunting

    Threat hunting

    Try to prevent what you can, detect what you can’t prevent and hunt for what you can’t detect.
    For this episode about threat hunting, Robby is joined by Andreas Bråthen, Team Lead for threat hunting at mnemonic. Andreas has worked on mnemonic’s threat hunting program for the past three years and shares some of his insights into why the threat hunting domain is so difficult to navigate, and how he defines this somewhat abstract term.
    He also goes into detail about the process behind the way mnemonic does threat hunting on a daily basis, what kind of technology you need to support this kind of program, and the difference between the structured and unstructured approach to threat hunting.

    Chat with a CFO

    Chat with a CFO

    Why should a CFO care about security?
    Is the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) role inherently occupied with saving money, or is it clear for someone in that role that there’s value in spending the extra dime on something like security? Or is the answer somewhere in between?
    To help him find the answer to this, Robby welcomes Øyvind Sten Bjerkseth, the new CFO at mnemonic, both to the company and the podcast. 
    Prior to joining mnemonic, Øyvind served 5+ years in CFO roles and brings 15 years of experience from Management Consulting, Corporate Finance and Private Equity. He chats with Robby about how security people can get the attention of someone like a CFO, the importance of risk management, and how the CFO role has evolved beyond cost-savings.

    Stress and security

    Stress and security

    Stress and security
    How do you manage your stress level when the very nature of your work is to be on high alert?
    In this episode we step away from the technology to focus on the stress of working in security, how it impacts our health and personal lives, and methods for keeping stress in check.
    Stress is something we’re all familiar with, especially in our field of work. Diving into this topic, Robby is joined by Edwin Doyle, Global Cyber Security Strategist at Check Point, and Emiliya Zhivotovskaya, CEO and Founder of The Flourishing Center. Edwin has more than 20 years of first-hand experience in stress in the security industry, and Emiliya holds degrees specialising in Applied Positive Psychology and has trained more than 1,500 practitioners around the world. Together they navigate the stress landscape of the cybersecurity industry, the science of stress, and discuss various tools and methods to deal with stress.
