NCF-79 What is the DarkWeb? Monitoring for internet criminal activity with IDAgent

June 20, 2018

Today's show will be an awakening to many people out there. We are discussing the often unknown arena of the Dark Web. If you have never heard of this or have heard about the dark web but are unsure what that term means you will not want to miss this show. Our guests Dana Liedholm and Kevin Lancaster of IDAgent, tell us that there is no better way to find vulnerabilities then to go where the criminals are marketing digital items which they have stolen from consumers. When they find items for sale on the darkweb then they know where to look for breaches and vulnerabilities.

I don't know if this is the best approach, but it may be the most effective for the time being. Our guest tell us that often they find organizations do not even know when they have been hacked or that there network has been breached. They say that monitoring for stolen data is often the only way that many breaches are determined.

Wow, this is great information, and the fact that Dark Web monitoring can add value for customer protection is a definitely something that many organizations would benefit from exploring.

NCF-75 Military Community and Cyber Security Innovation

May 22, 2018

Today our host Abe has a great conversation with Chief Warrant Officer John Falese, but that's about all we can say about military affiliations. It is a great discussion on Innovation from the perspective of a couple long term military intelligence officers. One of the things I picked up from this candid talk was the high level of stagnentation that both Abe and John have seen over the last few years in there career. Their question, where are the new ideas that will be game changers?

    As they discussed what they saw at the recent AFCEA Cyberspace symposium, I admit that we had the same experience with recent attendance of the RSA security conference. It themes seem to be a replay of last year, with a few incremental changes. I would have to agree, that the cyber security industry as a whole needs some new ideas.

    You will not want to miss the candid talk today, I enjoyed and learned a lot from from these seasoned cyber warriors.

NCF-CO8 Colorado Passes Law to use Blockchain for Governance in State Programs

May 15, 2018

It's an exciting time as we announce an unprecedented move by the State of Colorado to legislate requirements to use Blockchain in State Governance programs. Our Guest today, Trace Ridpath, is the Director of Security Governance for the Colorado Governor's Office of Information Technology. Back in 2017 we interviewed Colorado Senator Kent Lambert who was in the process of introducing the bill to require the use of BlockChain to create transparency and accountability in government programs.  Today we are happy to say, it is law in the state of Colorado.

Trace talks about the struggles governments have with consistency, and some of the places that Blockchain will be applied to provide uniformity between agencies and transparency to the public. On his list are Real Estate, Medicaid, Identify management, DMV Records, Food Safety, and more that we did not discuss. This new direction begins today, and as Senator Lambert first voiced on NFC-SR9, Colorado is set to be a global leader in blockchain for government.
