The need to properly secure Entra ID tenants has been made pretty obvious this year thanks to a large-scale attack on them by Russia’s SVR intelligence agency. In this interview Andy Robbins from SpecterOps, the maker of Bloodhound Enterprise, talks through how he thinks those attacks actually went down, about how if you’re an o365 customer you’re using Entra ID whether you like it or not, and about how you can lock down your Entra ID tenant.

In this Soap Box edition of the Risky Business podcast Patrick Gray talks to Island’s Bradon Rogers about security-focussed, enterprise browsers. You can use Island to do stuff like grant third parties access to corporate applications on unmanaged devices in a not insane way – that’s a huge pain point for a lot of CISOs, and something that is bringing a lot of new customers through Island’s doors. Obviously for devices you do manage, you can roll Island out as your default enterprise browser. There are a lot of security benefits to doing that.

In this Soap Box podcast Patrick Gray talks to Material Security’s CEO and co-founder Abhishek Agrawal about the security problems inherent to modern productivity suites. Does it make sense that threat actors can authenticate to o365 and Workspace accounts and clean them out entirely? Years of mail, years of files? Material Security has built a product that tackles this issue. It can lock up email archives behind MFA challenges, redact PII from inboxes, better control files share via Google Drive and OneDrive, and just generally limit the damage a threat actor can inflict when they compromise a cloud productivity account. Even if you’re not interested in buying a product to tackle this, we think this one is a great listen.

He talks about how Greynoise is using large language models to help them analyse massive quantities of malicious internet traffic.
In this edition of the Soap Box we hear from Mike Wiacek and Eric Foster from Stairwell. Stairwell makes a product that collects and analyses every executable file in your environment. You deploy file collectors to your systems and they forward all new files to Stairwell for manual and automated analysis. You can do a lot of really cool analysis once you have all that stuff in the same place. But as you’ll hear, Stairwell is broadening out the use cases for its platform. You don’t want to forward files from every system? You don’t have to. It’s still very useful as an analysis platform. It’s sort of like VirusTotal, but private and with a bunch more bells and whistles. There’s also a bunch of sharing tools in the platform, which gives it a “social network for CTI nerds” flavour.
On this week’s show Patrick Gray talks through the news with Dmitri Alperovitch, NSA Cybersecurity director Rob Joyce and NSA CCC director Morgan Adamski. They discuss: The Okta breach 40-50k feral Ciscos Why the http/2 protocol flaw is a real headache The Ragnar Locker takedown What the NSA CCC has been thinking about This week’s show is brought to you by Socket. Socket’s founder Feross Aboukhadijeh joins us this week to talk about their actually-not-crazy use of large language models in their product.
Patrick Gray speaks to Yubico’s Jerrod Chong about how organisations can better verify the identities of users when performing MFA resets. In other words, how to not get MGM’d. He also talks about the chain-of-trust issues inherent to synchronisable passkey implementations.
On this week’s show Patrick Gray and Lina Lau discuss the week’s security news. They cover: Microsoft has killed VBScript Google to make passkeys the new default sign-in method MGM losses to exceed $100m Clorox has a bad quarter Why a bug in cURL could be really bad news Much, much more This week’s show is brought to you by KSOC.
