Cybersecurity Simplified - Ep. 8: Breaking Down the SolarWinds Security Breach

The SolarWinds breach has been the big security news lately.

It’s making headlines for many reasons:

It’s one of the most stealthy attacks – going undetected for months
-It targeted U.S. government agencies — like the Pentagon and more – and major tech companies Microsoft, Cisco and Intel.
Plus, it’s one of the biggest who-dun-its – no one is certain who’s to blame.

In this episode of Cybersecurity Simplified, we’ll get past the headlines and break down the SolarWinds Security breach.

  • Debunking Myths About Cyber Insurance Recorded: Sep 23 2021 43 mins
    High Wire Networks' CEO Mark Porter & CTO David Barton, BKD Cyber's Director Cy Sturdivant, and Insurance Expert Tom Wetzel
    If cyber insurance is your “security blanket,” watch out! Cybercriminals may be stealing that from you, too!

    With the rising number and frequency of cyberattacks, cyber insurance companies are:
    • Recalculating the risk using a “when, not if” yardstick
    • Raising premium rates to cover the likelihood of an incident
    • Requiring proof of cybersecurity controls to issue coverage and payouts

    Learn more about the future of cyber insurance and what you can do to protect your organization from cybersecurity risk.

    Susanna Song, VP of Marketing & Communications at High Wire Networks and David Barton, CTO at High Wire Networks
    You see it in the headlines every day— ransomware attacks disrupting businesses and the economy in a broader sense. ​The Colonial pipeline attack certainly got the attention of the white house and our current administration after the attack forced the company to shut down 5,500 miles of pipeline, triggering widespread fuel shortages in the Southeast and panic buying. 2020 Was a Bad Year for Ransomware. 2021 is already shaping out to be way worse.

    Susanna Song, VP of Marketing & Communications at High Wire Networks and David Barton, CTO at High Wire Networks
    The success of working from home during lockdown has caused companies to rethink “the office,” allowing both in-office and at-home work on a permanent basis. But this new hybrid workplace presents cybersecurity challenges. Not only do companies need to secure headquarters, data centers and branch offices, they now need to safeguard dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of endpoints used by employees working remotely. In this episode of Cybersecurity Simplified, we’ll discuss why the New Hybrid Workplace is the Next Security Headache and what to do about it.
  • Cybersecurity Simplified - Ep.10: Cybersecurity as a Business Problem Recorded: Jun 29 2021 18 mins
    Susanna Song, VP of Marketing & Communications at High Wire Networks and David Barton, CTO at High Wire Networks
    Cybersecurity is an IT issue, to be managed by the IT
    department. Right?

    Our guest on Cybersecurity Simplified, Mark Porter, CEO at High Wire Networks, will explain that’s only half true.

    In fact, Cybersecurity impacts the entire business – not only that it’s IT infrastructure works, but operational uptime, the privacy of its customer data, compliance with regulations, ability to collect revenue – even the company reputation.

    Mark Porter will explain why Cybersecurity is Not Just an IT Problem, It’s a Business Problem.
  • Cybersecurity Simplified – Ep. 9: Automation: Responding to Cyberthreats Recorded: Jun 29 2021 15 mins
    Susanna Song, VP of Marketing & Communications at High Wire Networks and David Barton, CTO at High Wire Networks
    When we think about automation, images of displaced factory workers often spring to mind. But automation also can be a good thing, helping people to do their jobs better and faster.

    That’s the case in security operations. In fact, automation is critical to keeping up with exponentially rising threats and helping analysts respond faster.

    In this episode of Cybersecurity Simplified, we’ve invited a Security Operations expert to tell us how automation is the new weapon in the war on cybercrime.

  • Cybersecurity Simplified - Ep. 7: Why is Cybercrime Surging in the Coronaverse? Recorded: Jun 29 2021 19 mins
    Susanna Song, VP of Marketing & Communications at High Wire Networks and David Barton, CTO at High Wire Networks
    As if a pandemic were not enough, we’re being kicked while we’re down. Cybercriminals are exploiting our newest weakness – working from home. It’s no secret that home networks are not as secure as corporate networks, and bad actors are taking advantage of the fact and using them as a way in. In this episode of Cybersecurity Simplified, we’ll talk about the increased risk of remote work and what you can do to minimize it.
  • Cybersecurity Simplified - Episode 6: Accessories to Cybercrime a.k.a. Your Team Recorded: Jun 29 2021 15 mins
    Susanna Song, VP of Marketing & Communications at High Wire Networks and David Barton, CTO at High Wire Networks
    Believe it or not – your employees are the primary accessories to cybercrime.

    Of course, it’s not (usually) intentional, but it’s true, nonetheless.

    In this episode of Cybersecurity Simplified, we’ll talk about how your employees are unwittingly putting your business at risk and some simple steps to stop it.
  • Cybersecurity Simplified - Episode 5: Cybersecurity’s Most Wanted List Recorded: Jun 29 2021 16 mins
    Susanna Song, VP of Marketing & Communications at High Wire Networks and David Barton, CTO at High Wire Networks
    Cybersecurity is designed to stop or mitigate the fallout of cyberattacks. If it sounds like war, that’s because it is – only this one is 24/7 and the enemy is faceless.

    What we do know is a lot about their tactics.

    In this episode of Cybersecurity Simplified, we’ll go behind enemy lines and take a look at the most common cyberattacks that take down corporate networks.
  • Cybersecurity Simplified - Ep 4: Myths About Hackers Recorded: Jun 28 2021 18 mins
    Susanna Song, VP of Marketing & Communications at High Wire Networks and David Barton, CTO at High Wire Networks
    Hollywood loves to pin the takedown of the FBI computer network on a hoodie-clad teen in his parent’s basement. That’s so 1990.

    Sure, there are still hackers that fit this description but make no mistake, cybercriminals aren’t lone wolves. They are organized and operate like any legitimate business.

    In this episode of Cybersecurity Simplified, we’ll talk about who we’re actually up against in the fight against cybercrime.
  • Cybersecurity Simplified - Ep 3: The Newest Weapon in the War on Cybercrime: XDR Recorded: Jun 28 2021 16 mins
    Susanna Song, VP of Marketing & Communications at High Wire Networks and David Barton, CTO at High Wire Networks
    Cyberthreats are not only growing in number, they’re more lethal and they’re relentless -- and coming at us from all directions, every second of every day.

    The evolving sophistication of cyberthreats requires an equally evolved defense -- one that has eyes and ears everywhere and can sort through the false alarms to zero in on the real threats.

    In this episode of Cybersecurity Simplified, we’ll introduce you to the newest weapon in the war against cybercrime -- Extended Detection & Response, or XDR.
  • Cybersecurity Simplified - Ep 2: What is a SOC & Why Do I Need One? Recorded: Jun 28 2021 20 mins
    Susanna Song, VP of Marketing & Communications at High Wire Networks and David Barton, CTO at High Wire Networks
    Your IT guy installed a security firewall and antivirus software on your network, so you’re set, right?

    Wrong.

    These are useful security tools, but they’re not fool-proof. The idea that you can build a fence around your network is outdated.

    Today, threats find their way through even the best defenses. Your best option is to detect threats early and stop them in their tracks.

    That requires a 24/7 Security Operations Center.
    In this episode of Cybersecurity Simplified, we’ll explain what a Security Operations Center is and why you need one.
  • Cybersecurity Simplified - Episode 1: What Exactly is Cybersecurity, Anyway? Recorded: Jun 28 2021 16 mins
    Susanna Song, VP of Marketing & Communications at High Wire Networks and David Barton, CTO at High Wire Networks
    Most businesspeople think they know what cybersecurity is. Not only that -- they think they have it.

    In all probability, they are wrong on both counts. Instead, they have a false sense of security that’s putting their businesses at greater risk.
    In this premiere episode of Cybersecurity Simplified, we’re going to tackle the foundational question: What is Cybersecurity?
