Re: Awesome guests & topic
"The good news: the federal government is finally doing something about cybercrime. The bad news: the federal government is doing something about cybercrime." That about sums it up! I have very little faith in government officials because too many of them operate in a vacuum, especially at the federal level. Many of them believe that simply because they are elected or appointed to their positions, they are instantly infallible in their decisions, and are "doing the right thing", and that they know pretty much all there is to know about any given subject. Sometimes it is because they believe their advisors, whom they themselves choose, are experts in the subject and beyond criticism. Take this particular legislation – clearly they did not consult with the real experts in the field, as we can see by the outcry. My question is who did they consult with when they crafted the proposed language? Was there even a solicitation of opinion? It is likely that crickets will answer those questions.

Re: Awesome guests & topic
This topic has a lot of security pros nervous, angry and confused about why they apparently weren't consulted in this policy-making process. I don't think all is lost by any means, though: there's still time to lobby and shape this thing. I look forward to hearding Jeremiah's thoughts here, and to see what's really happening on the Hill from Harley.

Awesome guests & topic
This is a fabulous lineup with Jeremiah Grossman (founder and interim CEO at WhiteHat Security) and Harley Geiger (advocacy director and senior counsel at the Center for Democracy & Technology). Can't wait to hear what they have to say.

Improving Enterprise Cybersecurity With XDR
Enterprises are looking at eXtended Detection and Response technologies to improve their abilities to detect, and respond to, threats. While endpoint detection and response is not new to enterprise security, organizations have to improve network visibility, expand data collection and expand threat hunting capabilites if they want their XDR deployments to succeed. This issue of Tech Insights also includes: a market overview for XDR from Omdia, questions to ask before deploying XDR, and an XDR primer.
