World leaders and prominent CEOs are likely the first people you picture in Davos at the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting each January. Who you’re less likely to read about are the thriving groups of smaller business leaders who attend each year, and these up and coming cross-industry emerging leaders are out in full force at the meeting in Davos each year. An excellent example of how up-and-coming innovators, like Cadenza Innovation CEO and Founder Dr. Christina Lampe-Onnerud, are included in the annual meeting is through the Technology Pioneers program. Lampe-Onnerud has won the Technology Pioneers designation twice.
Crain’s New York Business, Government shutdown poses cybersecurity threat
Dave Weinstein, VP of Threat Research for New York-based Claroty, spoke to journalist Matthew Flamm about how the nation’s government cybersecurity workforce was being affected by the partial government shutdown. Dave explained most of the staff members who are still working, albeit without pay, are assigned to a division known as the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center, a real-time monitoring hub for the DHA. Those that were furloughed were more tied to the strategic initiatives at the National Risk Management Center. As a result, the center was likely to miss several staffing deadlines.

Inside Security, Duo has created a better browser-based API
With authentication tech at the forefront this month and a DHS emergency directive calling for urgent implementation of multi-factor authentication on Web infrastructure, Duo has introduced a new comprehensive authentication resource based on the initiative to eliminate passwords on the web, WebAuthn. Duo Security’s WebAuthn launched this month as a free and vendor-agnostic resource for the developer community to test and implement Web Authentication in their own websites. The browser-based API allows web applications to create strong, public key-based credentials to replace or supplement password-based authentication on their websites.
Just after the New Year, Marriott International revealed that 5.25M unencrypted passport numbers were stolen as part of a data breach it disclosed in November. These stolen passport numbers and travel itineraries represent a potential espionage bonanza, with China seen as the likely suspect at the center of this cyberattack. Flashpoint’s Jon Condra provides context on how Chinese intelligence efforts could be using these passport numbers and what this means for future travel.
Just as we choose what type of manager or parent we want to be, the same school of thought can be used when managing IT environments and the monitoring approach that will be taken to do so, including at the application level, endpoint level, network level, etc. APM Digest’s latest contributed article by Lakeside Software’s Patricia Diaz-Hymes dives deep into one of these ways of managing known as: Digital Experience Monitoring (DEM).
Security Week, How CISOs Can Demonstrate Business Value
In a byline for Security Week, Nick Sanna, CEO of RiskLens, writes that to truly succeed in their roles, CISOs must clearly demonstrate their value to the business in dollars and cents. Nick says, “CISOs need to focus on the strategic objectives of the business, as well as the people, technology and processes supporting the most important functions of the business. The technical side of security needs to be seen as part of that.”
SC Media, SC Media Innovator
Every year SC Media highlights technologies and vendors that stand out from the crowd and show great promise for the future. As the market continues to evolve, new categories are established, and the market starts to absorb these changes. Among these emerging categories and vendors, SafeBreach was named an SC Media Innovators in the “Security Infrastructure” category. SC Media writes that SafeBreach played a critical role in the Innovators mix this year because its Breach and Attack Simulation platform takes the guesswork out of identifying areas where the security roles between infrastructure and applications are obscured.

The co-founders used their experience in developing flexible platform solutions to create this service that lets users view identity and data relationships across cloud environments.
