@jdub Apparently mescaline has been looked at for depression too. Those alkaloids are work exploring.

Webinar is wrapping up. @Forcepointsec’s “2017 Security Predictions” report is at forcepoint.com/2017predictions with a related podcast.

via TweetDeck

@allisonr @ozmusiq @Forcepointsec Well this is the very point being presented. The specific risks shift, though, and orgs have to adapt.

via TweetDeck in reply to allisonr

10 Abandonware is a vulnerability. “More than 75,000 users in the IT security field continue to use an abandoned or obscure software.”

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

09 Ransomware will rise, but also shift to data exfiltration as well. Because income per ransom is declining as targets get backups sorted.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

08 AI and the Rise of Autonomous
Machine Hacking. “Self-directed hacking machines may be launched by rogue hackers or state actors.”

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Hansmann is running through this voice-threat stuff in quite some detail. It’s a powerful argument. pic.twitter.com/9OYgTTCGM8

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

07 Apps leveraging voice-activated AI such as Siri, Alexa and others, will explode in 2017, allowing a whole new
threat vector to emerge.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

@SnarkyPlatypus The millennials are coming from INSIDE THE MACHINE.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

I should mention than Hansmann is running through the subtleties of these points. I can’t tweet all of it, so you’re getting a skewed view.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

The internet of things (IoT) l means they’re a much, much bigger attack service. I now so want Hansmann to say “Refrigergeddon”.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

06 The cloud as an expanding
attack vector. “The cloud is a lie.” says Hansmann. It’s just a server somewhere you can’t see.

However an M&A means that it might release* skilled cybersecurity employees onto the market.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

05 Interesting angle on cybersec M&As. A once-good product gets acquired, then neglected ‘cos it’s a minor part of the buyer’s product mix.

Tip: Use your existing database to detect employees accessing more than N customer records per day, where N is the max in a typical day.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

04 @Forcepointsec is predicting an increase in the insider threat and misuse of PII, since there’s more of it and more people have access.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Here’s the full page about millennials from this @Forcepointsec presentation. pic.twitter.com/fVpSSxvWDU

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

In fact, it’s the millennials’ assumed “understanding” of the tech which increases the risk. (At least that’s @Forcepointsec’s argument.)

This is not a fair reading given the rest of the context, which I haven’t tweeted. twitter.com/Infoventurer/s…

Various APAC countries are adopting data protection regulations similar to the EU’s.

Apparently 75% of millennial employees think they understand security. 42% admit to using the same password on multiple sites.
