Security Industry Best Practices, from SANS to FUD

October 13, 2016

On this episode of Security Nation, host Kyle Flaherty is joined by Jen Ellis, who is not only the VP of Communications for Rapid7 but also a longtime proponent of security pros, along with Matt Hathaway, who heads up Rapid7's incident detection solution and is a longtime friend of the pod (FOP). They discuss some industry best practices, including:

  • The use for guides like the SANS/CIS critical controls and NIST
  • The confusion created by a lack of definitions in the security space and the amount of vendor FUD
  • How the controls will (or should) evolve as our technologies evolve
  • The difference between a cravat and an ascot knot
