Hosted by Joshua Nicholson
Welcome to the Cyber Security America show, a platform for exploring the dynamic and ever-evolving world of cybersecurity and information technology. In episode 17, we delve deep into the topic of zero trust, a security model that assumes all users, devices, and applications are potentially hostile, and requires strict access controls and verification measures to prevent data breaches. We also discuss the national security situation surrounding Jack Teixeira and its impact on security controls in the future. #cybersecurity #zerotrust #nationalsecurity Our guest for today's episode is Gordon Lawson, CEO of Conceal.io, who brings years of experience and ability in implementing zero trust strategies for some of the largest organizations in the world. Together, we explore the concept of zero trust, its advantages and challenges, and how it differs from traditional security models. We also discuss the future of zero trust and how it's shaping the cybersecurity landscape, including the innovative ConcealBrowse technology that detects, defends, and isolates malicious internet traffic. #zerotrustimplementation Gordon Lawson has over 20 years of experience in the physical and cyber security space, with a focus on SaaS optimization and global enterprise business development.

The malware was a significant part of the Turla framework used by Russian cyber threat actors and attributed to the Federal Security Service Center 16 and military unit 71330, also known as Berserk bear. The report supplies recommendations for mitigations and scanner technology. Additionally, a cybersecurity firm reported a threat actor trying to extort executives by compromising new hire credentials, showing the need for ongoing monitoring and protection of human elements in cybersecurity. The growing impact of cyberattacks on physical outcomes is also noted. #cybersecuritythreats #malware #5eyesalliance
