Mandia at the WSJ Cybersecurity Executive Forum

Kevin Mandia participated in an interview at the WSJ Cybersecurity Executive Forum on Wednesday. I was especially interested to hear what he had to say about the SolarWinds Hack, a topic I’ve written about a fair bit in prior posts.

One of the first things Mandia pointed out is the ongoing attempt to define what is and is not considered cyberwar and grounds for retaliation by the US government. He commented that “apparently supply chain attacks are fair game.” Hence, we need to prepare for them accordingly. …

Poorly designed processes increase cyber risk

Complexity is the worst enemy of security

So said Bruce Schneier, world-renowned security expert, back in 2012. That concept has always rung true to me when I think through how controls need to be applied to achieve testable and provable security. It’s similar to another quote traditionally accredited to Einstein:

Everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler.

The more complex things are, the harder they are to manage, the more error-prone they will be, and the easier it is for an attacker to slip into the cracks. At the same…

Responsibility lies at the top but everyone involved can help

I’ve been trying to buy a house since February and finally closed. It’s been quite an ordeal. I’m going to write about some cybersecurity issues I noticed along the way to help with awareness and hopefully some organizations and individuals will take actions that will help make transactions in the industry more secure.

When I told someone who was helping me about this he said, “You’re going to call us out?!” No. First of all, he was a lawyer so that would be dumb on my part. But more importantly, that is not the purpose of this series of blog…

Revisiting the facts after a week of news

Any time a major cyberattack occurs, news organizations of all types rush to get out the news and report on the available facts to get the “scoop”. In my classes, I warn students to wait a few days before coming to a conclusion as often the facts evolve as new information emerges. Let’s take a look at the big picture now that we have more facts, starting with this one:

The pipeline was restarted as of Wednesday, May 12th.

If you are out of gas at your local station it is on the way.

Now let’s start from the top:
