Best Hacks of 2022
As 2022 comes to an end, lets look at the best hacks, breaches, and just weirdness in the world of security.
The Twitter Conundrum
Twitter, its been in the news lately, but what does it have to do with Security? In this episode we discuss the most notable items that have been happening along this new Twitter journey and how it is affecting your privacy and security on the platform and if it is going to get better.
Telling the difference between a user that's a program and a user that's a real human is a hard problem. It's also a problem that is growing in importance as more and more of our lives are subject to what happens online. We've seen incredibly successful PSYOPS campaigns, service outages, anti-competitive litigation, and myriad other harmful events occur as a direct result of automated abuse.
So what is a bot and how can you successfully deal with them? We share some of our best secrets for effectively dealing with these bad internet denizens in today's episode.
Uber FUNK & CISO Troubles
Uber's ex-CISO has been charged with obstruction of justice and is facing up to 8 years in prison. The LinkedIn and Twitter security worlds are going crazy with the question of "What does this mean for CISOs today?"
Well if you're not engaged in obstructing federal investigations it probably won't change your risk profile at all. If you are a CISO that's obstructing federal investigations well... maybe CISO isn't the best role for you?? Join us as we dig into the "implications" (or lack thereof) of the recent conviction of ex-Uber CISO Joe Sullivan.
