Worst is yet to come, but they all warned you

CISA, FBI, Cyber Security specialists, they all warned you, I warned you, and I continue to do so.

Transnational criminal organizations, criminal hackers, are only getting better, and more organized. They have always been, but they are getting better and evolve faster.

This also means that YOU, and YOUR ORGANIZATIONS, must take this in consideration, and must adjust your posture according to this. Your risk register must be updated, and the likelihood of cyber events, at least should be raised or reviewed, especially on the ransomware side.

Doing so should put some level above the threshold you established, and some items that where falling under the « risk acceptance » option, will fall under the unacceptable, requiring compensation measures.

So you will update your security plan accordingly, while you adjust your risk posture.

A reminder on the risk management strategies :

  • Risk Avoidance – Change organization practices to avoid the risk
  • Risk Transference – Take an insurance, move the risk to a third party, BUT, keep in mind, there is no way you transfer 100% of the risk, which means, you need mitigation !
  • Risk Mitigation – Take action design to reduce the likelihood or impact of a risk
  • Risk Acceptance – After analysis, determining if cost makes the compensation irrelevant, then acceptance is the option
  • Risk Deterrence – Dissuade a threat to happen, which can only be applied to risks that can be affected by controlled factors

So you’ll place security controls, which are procedures and mechanisms that an organization puts in place to manage security risks.

You’ll follow the defence in depth approach, multiple controls for one objective, overlapping security controls.

These security controls fall under 3 categories :

  • Preventive, the goal being for the incident not to happen (you have a raid, so as when a disk dies, you don’t lose the data)
  • Detective, goal is to identify a failing preventive security control, or an incident
  • Corrective, restoring backups, because preventive controls failed, detective was missed, and you lost the data.

For each category above, you have many controls available (remember, people, process and technology somehow) :

  • Technical controls (technology based, like a firewall)
  • Operational controls (processes carried by humans)
  • Management controls ( conducting risk assessments, security planning, change management etc).

When your risk register is complete, you have the assessment done (exposure factor, single loss expectancy, you got your Annual Loss Expectancy by multiply SLE x ARO as in anual risk occurence), and you get a quantitative and qualitative assessment.

Your goals are defined via RTO (recovery time objective), RPO (recovery point objective), MTD (maximum tolerable downtime), and you know your MTTR (mean time to repair).

If you don’t know what adversary risks (aside of all the other existing risks) your organization face, have look to MITRE ATT&CK and check if anything is applicable to you, and therefore, if you have matching controls in place.

This week in the cyber news, helping you to have a real view of the threat landscape and what happens to others, so as you can actually review your posture, and adjust the above listed risk approach accordingly.

From a broken TLS CA, to Facebook, to FIN12 hit and run

Alexandre Blanc CyberSecurity weekly cyber linkedin
Alexandre Blanc Weekly Cyber

Yet another crazy week in cyber, which makes me wonder if there is any quiet week anymore, and, as a lot spoke about mental health as well, how long do you think a human can take all of this ?

Meanwhile, I’m still motivated to do good, and while ransomware gangs make millions every month, we try to get a couple of bucks from people so as we can help secure them (not asking for money, just tough to get organization to spend just enough to protect themselves).

But I’m telling you, this won’t last, ransomware projections are so huge, that we’ll come to a point where, sorry, we don’t take new customers. Scarcity, is where we’re heading, and I’m telling you, find your cyber security partner NOW, because we, skilled humans in this field, are in very limited supply. The illusion of the market may make you think you have choice, but there is a fun fact in the back end, A sells the skills of B, which sells the skills of C, which rely on A for any overflow…… do you see it coming ?


Monica talks Cyber to Alex

Meanwhile, Monica and myself are going to share some insights on our CISO experience, hopefully a series to start in November, and well scheduled (according to her, she likes when things are organized, and it’s good !), and pretty fun (according to me, and her actually, we agree on this)…. (wait, did I mean we don’t agree on everything ? )…. (seems I’m talking to myself now…. ok, let’s move on).

Edit : Monica said that I should say that the audience will have an AWESOME opportunity not only to ask ya questions for this episode but ALSO TO SHAPE OUR NEXT EPISODES and what challenges we address (that’s what she said :P )

Yes we can fix this mess, but do we want to ? That’s another story

Alexandre Blanc CyberSecurity weekly cyber linkedin
I wonder if I’ll end in the linkedin top voices list this year….yes, curious to know :)

Before going to the list of key #cybersecurity event we saw this week, I wanted to quickly speak about solutions. I present all these incidents and news, hoping that people who read, actually understand better the threat landscape and get better prepared.

Today, and for a while, there are technical solutions against all the incidents we see, many many options are available, allowing you to place the right security controls, at the right place, to properly mitigate risks, and mostly remove the impact of incidents.

Yes, you need to spend some money, and yes, you need just a little effort. But in the end, this is way better than being the next one in the news, feeding criminals and transnational criminal organizations with your data, your customers data, your employees data etc.

Yes, backup are absolutely needed, but no, they are not a proper strategy AGAINST ransomwares and breaches. They are just corrective controls, it means, they are in, too late. They are absolutely needed, but in case of data loss etc, can’t help against data theft.

If you know what you do, and you have a good security architecture, you know your inventory, data flows, assets, you’re good. If you don’t know all of this, then, get support from MSSP. I sure work for VARS Corporation, so, I know the tools we use, and I can honestly tell you, they work. We mitigate incidents. There are certainly others, providing similar service levels, so go, find your managed security partner, and get your stuff in order. We can obviously be the one.

We all offer, maturity audit, cyber security audit, gap analysis against a framework (NIST CSF, ISO, CMMC, you name it, mostly sharing the same goal and means anyways), but if you have to take action, for quick win, go for XDR, Email advanced security, dark web monitoring, as starting point. That good old 80 / 20 rule…. FACT, no BS, that the best bang for your bucks to begin with.

An absolute key point to me : Mix the providers, integrated solutions, but different tools, it’s almost digital suicide to rely on a single tool provider. A huge SPOF (single point of failure), you must apply the basics, which is overlapping security controls, and these, from different vendors. Because when vendor 1 backend is hacked (like solarwinds, or azure, or mostly all of them), you need to have a trigger from vendor 2 solution.
