Today we welcome two guests to the Security Stories pod. Firstly Martin Lee from Talos drops by to give us an update on wiper malware, and how it’s been playing a part in cyber attacks on Ukrainian organizations and infrastructure.
We talk about the history of wiper malware, where it’s cropped up before, it’s role in the kill chain and possible threat actor motivations, as well as what organizations can be doing to prevent this type of attack.
Secondly, we welcome Jerry Gamblin, Director of Security Research at Kenna Security to join us for an in depth chat about his career. Jerry’s story is a really interesting one, from starting out on the IT helpdesk, to working on security networks at the Misouri House of Representatives, and onto his role at Kenna where he has built several tools to help people understand the different types of vulnerabilities and how to mitigate them.
We discuss Jerry’s approach – how he inspires his team to think differently, and how personally he’s driven a sense of thinking outside of the job description. We also discuss how organizations can deal with the ever growing list of new vulnerabilities, and how you can prirotise them.
