This week on Lock and Code, we discuss the top security headlines generated right here on Labs and around the Internet. In addition, we talk to Chuck Brooks, cybersecurity evangelist and adjunct professor for Georgetown University’s Applied Intelligence Program and graduate Cybersecurity Programs, about identity and access management technology.
This set of technologies and policies controls who accesses what resources inside a system—from company files being locked away for only some employees, to even your online banking account being accessible only to you.
But with more individuals using more accounts to access more resources than ever before, threats have similarly emerged.
Tune in to hear about the uses of identity and access management technology, how the tech will be influenced by other technologies in the future, and more, on the latest episode of Lock and Code, with host David Ruiz.
We cover our own research on:
- What’s been going on with TikTok.
- We explained some of the issues surrounding Cloud workload security.
- A malspam campaign dabbles in GuLoader.
- What to look out for in a prevalent PayPal phishing scam.
