13: Prime directives: Serving the public trust, protecting the innocent, and upholding security laws, with Tanya Forsheit

Security Stories

Business

We almost called this episode "Robocop 4: The future of security law enforcement", but we actually hope that movie happens so we didn't want to jinx it...But security law is our prime directive today, as on this episode we have an interview with Tanya Forsheit, partner at Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz and co-chair of the firm's privacy & data security group. Tanya is considered one of the world's leading data privacy and security counselors and litigators. During our chat, we talk about why the United States needs a privacy law at the federal level, similar to what the European Union has done with GDPR. We also talk about what the future holds for data privacy in the next 12-24 months, within the context of COVID-19 and an increasing amount of IoT devices. Tanya is also highly experienced in data breach incidents, and is often involved in data rescue operations for her clients. So she has some great views on response planning and business continuity.Before that, Noureen brings us some fascinating stories from her recent mentor and mentee workshop sessions, including how people who were made redundant back in March at the start of lockdown have been able to find new jobs in the cybersecurity industry. We also have a chat about careers and job descriptions, and why perhaps more thought needs to go into some of those descriptions in order to attract more people who are passionate about the industry.For our "Emerging Threats" section Ben has been doing some very in depth research into the ransomware variant "WastedLocker". He talks about the nuances of this attack and how the bad actors spread across the network to further compromise additional systems until all the key systems are under their control.  You can read more in his blog here.And finally for "On this Day" our time travel machine takes us back to 2003, and the story of the Blaster worm. For Ben, this was a trial by fire as he had just started work in a threat intelligence company and this was his first project. Hear him relive some not so fond memories!
