Charles Leaver – You Have Heard Of The KRACK Vulnerability Here Is What You Do

Published by:

Written By Dr Al Hartmann And Presented By Charles Leaver


Enough media attention has actually been generated over the Wi-Fi WPA2-defeating Key Reinsertion Attack (KRACK), that we do not have to re-cover that ground. The original discoverer’s website is a good location to review the problems and link to the in-depth research paper. This might be the greatest attention paid to a fundamental communications security failure since the Heartbleed attack. In that earlier attack, a patched variation of the vulnerable OpenSSL code was released on the same day as the public disclosure. In this brand-new KRACK attack, similar accountable disclosure guidelines were followed, and patches were either currently released or quickly to follow. Both wireless end points and wireless network devices should be appropriately patched. Oh, and good luck getting that Chinese knockoff wireless security camera bought off eBay patched quickly.

Here we will simply make a couple of points:

Take inventory of your wireless devices and take action to ensure proper patching. (Ziften can carry out passive network stock, including wireless networks. For Ziften monitored endpoints, the available network interfaces in addition to applied patches are reported.) For business IT personnel, it is patch, patch, patch every day anyhow, so absolutely nothing new here. However any unmanaged wireless devices ought to be identified and verified.

Windows and iOS end points are less susceptible, while unpatched Linux and Android end points are extremely prone. A lot of Linux endpoints will be servers without wireless networking, so not as much direct exposure there. However Android is another story, particularly given the balkanized state of Android updating across device producers. Most likely your business’s biggest direct exposure will be IoT and Android devices, so do your risk analysis.

Prevent wireless access by means of unencrypted protocols such as HTTP. Adhere to HTTPS or other encrypted protocols or utilize a secure VPN, but know some default HTTPS sites allow jeopardized devices to coerce downgrade to HTTP. (Note that Ziften network monitoring reports IP addresses and ports used, so have a look at any wireless port 80 traffic on endpoints that are unpatched.).

Continue whatever wireless network hygiene practices you have been employing to identify and silence rogue access points, unapproved wireless devices, and so on. Grooming access point placement and transmission zones to lessen signal spillage outside your physical boundaries is likewise a smart practice, considering that KRACK aggressors should be present locally within the wireless network. Don’t give them advantaged placement chances inside or near your environment.

For a more wider conversation around the KRACK vulnerability, have a look at our current video on the topic:

Charles Leaver – Train Your Staff Effectively About Security

Published by:

Written By Charles Leaver Ziften CEO


Effective corporate cybersecurity assumes that people – your staff members – do the best thing. That they do not turn over their passwords to a caller who claims to be from the IT department doing a “qualifications audit.” That they do not wire $10 million to an Indonesian checking account after getting a midnight demand from “the CEO”.

That they do not set up an “immediate upgrade” to Flash Player based upon a pop-up on a porn website. That they do not overshare on social networks. That they do not save business details on file sharing services outside the firewall. That they don’t link to unsecure WiFi networks. And they don’t click on links in phishing e-mails.

Our research study reveals that 75+% of security incidents are triggered or helped by staff member errors.

Sure, you’ve installed endpoint security, email filters, and anti-malware solutions. Those precautions will probably be for nothing, however, if your employees do the wrong thing time and again when in a hazardous scenario. Our cybersecurity efforts are like having an elegant automobile alarm: If you don’t teach your teenager to lock the vehicle when it’s at the mall, the alarm is worthless.

Security awareness isn’t enough, of course. Employees will make errors, and there are some attacks that do not need a worker bad move. That’s why you need endpoint security, email filters, anti-malware, and so on. But let’s speak about reliable security awareness training.

Why Training Frequently Fails to Have an Effect

Initially – in my experience, a lot of staff member training, well, is poor. That’s particularly true of online training, which is usually dreadful. However for the most parts, whether live or canned, the training does not have credibility, in part due to the fact that lots of IT experts are poor and unconvincing communicators. The training often focuses on communicating and implementing rules – not altering dangerous behavior and habits. And it’s like getting mandatory copy machine training: There’s nothing in it for the staff members, so they don’t accept it.

It’s not about implementing rules. While security awareness training might be “owned” by various departments, such as IT, CISO, or HR, there’s often an absence of knowledge about what a safe awareness program is. First of all, it’s not a checkbox; it needs to be ongoing. The training should be delivered in different ways and times, with a mix of live training, newsletters, small-group conversations, lunch-and-learns, and yes, even online resources.

Safeguarding yourself is not complicated!

But a big problem is the absence of objectives. If you do not know exactly what you’re attempting to do, you cannot see if you have actually done an excellent job in the training – and if dangerous habits in fact alter.

Here are some sample goals that can result in effective security awareness training:

Offer staff members with the tools to acknowledge and handle ongoing day-to-day security dangers they may receive online and via e-mail.

Let workers understand they belong to the group, and they can’t just rely on the IT/CISO teams to deal with security.

Halt the cycle of “unintended ignorance” about safe computing practices.

Modify state of minds toward more safe practices: “If you observe something, say something”.

Review of company guidelines and procedures, which are described in actionable terms which relate to them.

Make it Appropriate

No matter who “owns” the program, it’s important that there is visible executive backiong and management buy-in. If the officers don’t care, the staff members will not either. Effective training won’t talk about tech buzzwords; rather, it will concentrate on changing behaviors. Relate cybersecurity awareness to your staff members’ individual life. (And while you’re at it, teach them the best ways to keep themselves, their family, and their house safe. Odds are they don’t know and hesitate to ask).

To make security awareness training truly relevant, obtain employee ideas and motivate feedback. Step success – such as, did the variety of external links clicked by workers decrease? How about calls to tech assistance originating from security violations? Make the training prompt and real-world by consisting of recent rip-offs in the news; unfortunately, there are so many to select from.

In other words: Security awareness training isn’t fun, and it’s not a silver bullet. However, it is important for guaranteeing that risky staff member habits do not weaken your IT/CISO efforts to protect your network, devices, applications, and data. Make certain that you continually train your employees, and that the training works.

Charles Leaver – Feel The Excitement Of The Latest Splunk .conf

Written By Josh Applebaum And Presented By Charles Leaver


Like so many of you, we’re still recuperating from Splunk.conf recently. As usual,. conf had terrific energy and the people who remained in participation were passionate about Splunk and the many usage cases that it offers through the large app ecosystem.

One crucial statement throughout the week worth discussing was a new security offering called “Content Updates,” which basically is pre-built Splunk searches for assisting to detect security events.

Basically, it has a look at the most recent attacks, and the Splunk security group produces new searches for how they would look through Splunk ES data to discover these types of attacks, and after that ships those brand-new searches to consumer’s Splunk ES environments for automatic notifications when seen.

The best part? Because these updates are using mainly CIM (Common Info Model) data, and Ziften populates a great deal of the CIM models, Ziften’s data is already being matched versus the new Content Updates Splunk has actually produced.

A fast demonstration revealed which vendors are adding to each type of “detection” and Ziften was pointed out in a great deal of them.

For instance, we have a current blog post that shares how Ziften’s data in Splunk is utilized to identify and react to WannaCry.

Overall, with the around 500 individuals who came by the booth over the course of.conf I have to say it was one of the very best occasions we have actually done in terms of quality discussions and interest. We had nothing but positive reviews from our thorough discussions with all walks of business life – from extremely technical experts in the public sector to CISOs in the monetary sector.

The most typical conversation usually began with, “We are just beginning to roll out Splunk and are new to the platform.” I like those, because people can get our Apps totally free and we can get them an agent to try out and it gets them something to use right out of the box to show value right away. Other folks were extremely skilled and actually liked our approach and architecture.

Bottom line: People are genuinely thrilled about Splunk and real services are offered to assist people with real problems!

Want to know more? The Ziften ZFlow App and Technology Add-on assists users of Splunk and Splunk ES usage Ziften-generated extended NetFlow from end points, servers, and cloud VMs to see what they are missing out on at the perimeters of their network, their data centers, and in their cloud implementations.

Charles Leaver – Dismiss Vulnerability Lifecycle Management At Your Peril

Published by:

Written By Dr Al Hartmann And Presented By Charles Leaver


The following heading hit the news last week on September 7, 2017:

Equifax Inc. today revealed a cyber security occurrence potentially impacting around 143 million U.S. consumers. Lawbreakers exploited a U.S. site application vulnerability to gain access to certain files. Based upon the business’s investigation, the unauthorized gain access to occurred from the middle of May through July 2017.

Lessons from Past Data Breaches

If you like your occupation, appreciate your role, and dream to maintain it, then don’t leave the door open up to enemies. A major data breach frequently begins with an unpatched vulnerability that is readily exploitable. Then the inevitable occurs, the hackers are inside your defenses, the crown jewels have actually left the building, the press releases fly, costly consultants and outside legal counsel rack up billable hours, regulators come down, lawsuits are flung, and you have “some serious ‘splainin’ to do”!

We are unsure if the head splainer in the present Equifax breach will endure, as he is still in ‘splainin’ mode, asserting the breach started with the exploitation of an application vulnerability.

In such cases the typical rhumba line of resignations is – CISO first, followed by CIO, followed by CEO, followed by the board of directors shakeup (particularly the audit and corporate duty committees). Do not let this happen to your career!

Steps to Take Now

There are some commonsense steps to take to avert the unavoidable breach disaster arising from unpatched vulnerabilities:

Take stock – Inventory all data and system assets and map your network topology and attached devices and open ports. Know your network, it’s segmentation, what devices are connected, what those devices are running, what vulnerabilities those systems and apps expose, what data assets they gain access to, the level of sensitivity of those assets, what defenses are layered around those assets, and exactly what checks are in place along all prospective access points.

Improve and toughen up – Implement best practices suggestions for identity and access management, network division, firewall software and IDS setups, os and application setups, database access controls, and data file encryption and tokenization, while streamlining and cutting the number and intricacy of subsystems across your business. Anything too complex to manage is too intricate to secure. Choose configuration hardening paradise over breach response hell.

Continuously monitor and scrutinize – Periodic audits are necessary but inadequate. Continuously monitor, track, and evaluate all relevant security occasions and exposed vulnerabilities – create visibility, event capture, analysis, and archiving of every system and session login, every application launch, every active binary and vulnerability exposure, every script execution, every command provided, every networking contact, every database transaction, and every delicate data access. Any holes in your security event visibility produce an attacker free-fire zone. Develop key efficiency metrics, track them ruthlessly, and drive for relentless improvement.

Don’t accept functional excuses for insufficient security – There are always safe and effective operational policies, but they may not be painless. Not suffering a devastating data breach is way down the organizational discomfort scale from the alternative. Functional expedience or running traditional or misaligned priorities are not valid reasons for extenuation of bad cyber practices in an intensifying threat environment. Lay down the law.

Charles Leaver – What You Need To Do After The Equifax Security Breach

Published by:

Written By Michael Levin And Presented By Charles Leaver

Equifax, among the three significant U.S. based credit reporting services just revealed a significant data breach where hackers have actually stolen delicate info from 143 million American customers.

Ways that the Equifax security infiltration WILL affect you:

– Personal – Your personal and family’s identity details is now known to hackers and will be targeted!

– Business – Your organizations may be affected and targeted.

– Nationally – Terrorist, Nation States and organized crime groups could be included or use this data to commit cybercrime to get financial gain.

Securing yourself is not complicated!

5 suggestions to protect yourself immediately:

– Sign up for a credit monitoring service and/or lock your credit. The quickest way to be notified that your credit is compromised is through a credit tracking service. Equifax has actually currently started the procedure of establishing free credit monitoring for those impacted. Other credit tracking services are readily available and need to be considered.

– Monitor all your financial accounts consisting of charge cards and all checking accounts. Make sure that all notices are turned on. Ensure you are receiving instant text and e-mail alerts for any modifications in your account or enhanced transactions or balances.

– Safeguard your bank and financial accounts, ensure that two-factor authentication is turned on for all accounts. Learn about 2 level authentication and turn it on for all financial accounts.

– Phishing e-mail messages can be your biggest everyday danger! Slow down when managing e-mail messages. Stop immediately clicking on every email link and attachment you get. Instead of clicking links and attachments in e-mail messages, go independently to the sites beyond the e-mail message. When you get an email, you were not anticipating from a name you acknowledge consider contacting the sender separately before you click on links or attachments.

– Strong passwords – consider changing all your passwords. Develop strong passwords and secure them. Utilize various passwords for your accounts.

Other Security Considerations:

– Backup all computers and update operating systems and software applications routinely.

– Social media security – Sharing excessive details on social media increases the danger that you will be taken advantage of. For instance, telling the world, you are on vacation with pictures opens the threat your house will be robbed.

– Secure your devices – Do not leave your laptop, phone or tablet unattended even for a second. Don’t leave anything in your vehicle you do not desire taken since it’s just a matter of time.

– Internet of things and device management – Understand how all your devices link to the Web and what information you are sharing. Examine security settings for all devices and be sure to include smart watches and fitness bands.

The value of training on security awareness:

– This is another cyber crime, where security awareness training can help to lower danger. Being aware of brand-new cyber crimes and scams in the news is a basic part of security awareness training. Ensuring that employees, family and friends know this fraud will greatly minimize the probability that you will be taken advantage of.

– Sharing new rip-offs and crimes you find out about in the news with others, is very important to ensure that the people you appreciate do not fall victim to these types of criminal activities.

Charles Leaver – You Need An Extensible Security Solution Not Generic One

Published by:

Written By Charles Leaver Ziften CEO


Whether you call them extensions, or call them personalizations – no matter what you call it, the best innovation platforms can be tailored to fit an organization’s specific business requirements. Generic operations tools are great at carrying out generic operations tasks. Generic security tools are great at attending to generic security obstacles. Generic can only take you so far, unfortunately, and that’s where extensibility steps in.

Extensibility turns up often when I’m speaking with clients and possible clients, and I’m proud that a Global 10 company selected Ziften over everybody else in the marketplace primarily on that basis. For that customer, and numerous others, the capability to deeply personalize platforms is a need.

This isn’t really about merely creating customized reports or customized signals. Let’s be sincere – the ability to produce reports are baseline ability of lots of IT operations and security management tools. Real extensibility goes deep into the service to offer it capabilities that solve genuine issues for the company.

One customer used lots of mobile IoT devices, and needed to have our Zenith real time visibility and control system have the ability to access (and track) the memory of those devices. That’s not a standard function provided by Zenith, due to the fact that our low-footprint agent doesn’t hook into the operating system kernel or work through basic device drivers. Nevertheless, we dealt with the client to personalize Zenith with that capability – and it ended up being easier than anyone imagined.

Another client looked at the standard set of endpoint data that the agent gathers, and wanted to include additional data fields. They also wished to setup the administrative console with custom-made actions utilizing those data fields, and press those actions back out to those end points. No other endpoint monitoring and security option was able to offer the facilities for including that functionality other than Ziften.

In addition, the customer developed those extensions themselves … and owns the code and intellectual property. It’s part of their own secret sauce, their own company differentiator, and unique to their company. They couldn’t be happier. And neither could we.

With numerous other IT operations and security systems, if customers want additional features or abilities, the only option is to submit that as a future feature demand, and hope that it appears in an approaching version of the solution. Till then, regrettable.

That’s not how we designed our flagship solutions, Zenith and ZFlow. Due to the fact that our end point agent isn’t really based upon device drivers or kernel hooks, we can allow for significant extensibility, and open that extensibility for clients to access directly.

Similarly, with our administrative consoles and back-end monitoring systems; anything is adjustable. This was integrated in right from the start.

Another aspect of personalization is that our real-time and historical visibility database can integrate into your other IT operations and security platforms, such as SIEM tools, hazard intelligence, IT ticketing system, task orchestration systems, and data analytics. With Zenith and ZFlow, there are no silos. Ever.

When it comes to endpoint tracking and management, extensions are significantly where it’s at. IT operations and enterprise security groups need the ability to personalize their tools platforms to fit their precise requirements for monitoring and managing IoT, conventional endpoints, the data center, and the cloud. In numerous customer discussions, our integrated extensibility has actually caused eyes to light up, and won us trials and deployments. Tell us about your customized needs, and let’s see exactly what we can do.

Charles Leaver – Video Reveals Our Endpoint Security Architecture

Published by:

Written By Mike Hamilton And Presented By Ziften CEO Charles Leaver


End Point security is all the rage these days. And there are great deals of various suppliers out there promoting their services in this market. However it’s in some cases hard to comprehend what exactly each vendor provides. What’s even more hard is to comprehend how each vendor service is architected to offer their services.

I think that the back-end architecture of whatever you pick can have a profound effect on the future scalability of your application. And it can produce lots of unforeseen work and costs if you’re not mindful.

So, in the spirit of transparency, and due to the fact that we believe our architecture is not the same, distinct and powerful, we welcome all end point security suppliers to “show us your architecture”.

I’ll get the ball rolling in the following video where I reveal to you the Ziften architecture, and a few of what I think about legacy architectures for comparison. Specifically, I’ll talk about:

– Ziften’s architecture designed utilizing next gen cloud principles.
– One company’s peer-to-peer “mish-mash” architecture.
– Legacy hub-spoke-hub architectures.

I have actually shown you the power of our truly cloud-based platform. Now it’s my competitor’s turn. What are you waiting for folks – show us your architectures!

Charles Leaver – Risk And Security Require Proper Management

Published by:

Written By Roark Pollock And Presented By Charles Leaver Ziften CEO


Danger management and security management have long been dealt with as separate functions frequently carried out by different practical teams within a company. The acknowledgment of the requirement for constant visibility and control across all assets has actually increased interest in trying to find commonalities in between these disciplines and the schedule of a brand-new generation of tools is allowing this effort. This conversation is very current provided the continued trouble most business companies experience in attracting and keeping qualified security personnel to handle and safeguard IT infrastructure. An unification of activity can assist to much better utilize these important personnel, minimize expenses, and assist automate response.

Historically, risk management has actually been viewed as an attack mandate, and is generally the field of play for IT operations groups. Often described as “systems management”, IT operations groups actively carry out device state posture monitoring and policy enforcement, and vulnerability management. The objective is to proactively reduce potential threats. Activities that further risk reduction and that are performed by IT operations consist of:

Offensive Threat Mitigation – Systems Management

Asset discovery, inventory, and revitalize

Software discovery, usage tracking, and license justification

Mergers and acquisition (M&A) threat evaluations

Cloud workload migration, monitoring, and enforcement

Vulnerability evaluations and patch installs

Proactive help desk or systems analysis and problem response/ repair work

On the other side of the field, security management is viewed as a defensive strategy, and is normally the field of play for security operations teams. These security operations teams are normally responsible for threat detection, event response, and remediation. The goal is to respond to a danger or a breach as quickly as possible in order to minimize effects to the organization. Activities that fall directly under security management which are performed by security operations include:

Defensive Security Management – Detection and Response

Threat detection and/or hazard searching

User habits monitoring / insider threat detection and/or searching

Malware analysis and sandboxing

Incident response and hazard containment/ removal

Lookback forensic investigations and root cause determination

Tracing lateral risk movements, and further threat removal

Data exfiltration determination

Successful businesses, naturally, need to play both offense AND defense equally well. This requirement is pressing organizations to acknowledge that IT operations and security operations have to be as lined up as possible. Thus, as much as possible, it assists if these 2 teams are playing using the very same playbook, or at least working with the very same data or single source of truth. This indicates both teams ought to make every effort to utilize a few of the same analytic and data collection tools and methods when it concerns managing and securing their endpoint systems. And if organizations rely on the same personnel for both tasks, it definitely assists if those people can pivot between both jobs within the same tools, leveraging a single data set.

Each of these offensive and defensive tasks is vital to securing a company’s copyright, credibility, and brand name. In fact, managing and focusing on these tasks is what frequently keeps CIOs and CISOs up at night. Organizations must recognize chances to line up and consolidate groups, innovations, and policies as much as possible to ensure they are focused on the most immediate need along the current risk and security management spectrum.

When it concerns handling endpoint systems, it is clear that organizations are approaching an “all the time” visibility and control design that enables continuous danger assessments, constant threat monitoring, as well as constant performance management.

Thus, organizations need to look for these 3 essential abilities when examining brand-new endpoint security systems:

Solutions that offer “all the time” visibility and control for both IT operations teams and security operations groups.

Solutions that offer a single source of truth that can be used both offensively for danger management, and defensively for security detection and response.

Architectures that quickly integrate into current systems management and security tool environments to deliver even greater value for both IT and security teams.
