The metaverse is an evolving storytelling environment in which humans have congregated for millennia to experience alternate, immersive, and simulated realities, with or without technology. Storytelling is designed to influence mental and physical perceptions suiting the purposes of the content creators. Metawar is the art of applying science to create and defend against the influence of alternate realities in the metaverse. What if we can longer rely on our senses to determine what is real and what is fiction? Winn's research into Metawar initially focused on metaversal technologies. Unexpectedly, it morphed into an intensely personal experience, triggering Winn's own Metanoia, which had a profound impact on the entire Metawar Thesis. Winn joins Business Security Weekly to share his Metanoia. In the leadership and communications section, A CISO's Actionable Strategy for Success, Security basics aren’t so basic — they’re hard, Building a Culture Where Employees Feel Free to Speak Up, and more!

The Security Weekly 25 Index is still trying to recover. Inflation fears have tampered the recovery and the NASDAQ is outperforming the Index. Fastly replaces Sumo Logic in the Index and Thoma Bravo has not acquired anyone, so hoping the index stays stable for more than a quarter :). Here's the latest list of companies in the index: Secureworks Corp Palo Alto Networks Inc Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. Splunk Inc Gen Digital Inc Fortinet Inc Akamai Technologies, Inc. F5 Inc Zscaler Inc Onespan Inc Leidos Holdings Inc Qualys Inc Verint Systems Inc. Cyberark Software Ltd Tenable Holdings Inc Darktrace PLC SentinelOne Inc Cloudflare Inc Crowdstrike Holdings Inc NetScout Systems, Inc. Varonis Systems Inc Rapid7 Inc Fastly Inc Radware Ltd A10 Networks Inc

Ransomware-as-a-Service has contributed to a steady rise in sophisticated ransomware attacks. Ransomware authors are increasingly staying under the radar by launching encryption-less attacks which involve large volumes of data exfiltration. Organizations must move away from using legacy point products and instead migrate to a fully integrated zero trust platform that minimizes their attack surface, prevents compromise, reduces the blast radius in the event of a successful attack, and prevents data exfiltration.

On July 31st, 2023, the Biden administration released a national strategy addressing cyber workforce shortages, calling long-standing vacancies a national security imperative. The National Cyber Workforce and Education Strategy focuses on four major pillars: equipping every American with cyber skills, transforming cyber education, expanding and enhancing the national cyber workforce and strengthening the federal cyber workforce. The strategy relies heavily on non-governmental and private sector entities to provide funding, internship and apprenticeship programs to increase the number of workers with cybersecurity skills. One of those entities referenced in the strategy is Dakota State University. Dr. José-Marie Griffiths joins us to discuss education's role in the strategy, but offers other insights, including: - immigration policies and how it limits the current cyber workforce, - diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives and the reduction of women in the cyber workforce, and - what can the cyber community do to help.

Some organizations are banning ChatGPT and other generative AI models out of fear of the risks they could introduce. While this is understandable, the reality is generative AI is accelerating so fast that, very soon, banning it in the workplace will be like blocking employee access to their web browser. Randy Lariar, Practice Director of Big Data, AI and Analytics at Optiv, will discuss how to embrace the new technology and shift the focus from preventing it in the workplace to adopting it safely and securely. We will discuss the challenges and benefits of generative AI, including: - How to detect AI tools and usage - How to develop policies and procedures for using AI tools - How the protect the models, data, and infrastructure to support AI tools - What are the regulatory requirements that may impact AI tools and usage - What are the benefits of using AI tools
