GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is weighing on the minds and pocketbooks of a lot of European companies, but is the US as worried? If you read many of the news articles out there, it ranges from 'meh' to 'OMG, the sky, it is falling". GDPR will cause a lot of new issues in the way business is being done, not just in the realm of security, but in the way data is managed, maintained, catalogued, and shared.

This week we invited Ms. Wendy Everette Knox (@wendyck) to come in and discuss some of the issues that might hit companies. We also discuss how GDPR and the exit (or not) of the UK from the #European #Union will affect data holders and citizens of the UK.

If your company is preparing for the #GDPR mandate, check out the show notes for a lot of good info.

ALSO, If you are looking for a ticket to #derbycon 2017, you need to listen to this show, because it has all the info you need to get started.  The info is also in the show notes, including the form you need to post your flag information.

---Show Notes:----

 

 

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) is a regulation by which the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union and the European Commission intend to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union (EU). It also addresses the export of personal data outside the EU. The primary objectives of the GDPR are to give control back to citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU.[1]

 

 

Would it be better if companies stored less data, or de-anon it to the point where a breach

 

Massive fines for breaches. Usually some percentage of profits…

 

(up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 Million (whichever is greater))

 

Under the GDPR, the Data Controller will be under a legal obligation to notify the Supervisory Authority without undue delay. The reporting of a data breach is not subject to any de minimis standard and must be reported to the Supervisory Authority within 72 hours of the data breach (Article 33).”

 

Is 72 hours for notification realistic? For massive breaches, 72 hours is just enough time to contain

 

Right to be forgotten (not realistic):

“A right to be forgotten was replaced by a more limited right to erasure in the version of the GDPR adopted by the European Parliament in March 2014.[19][20] Article 17 provides that the data subject has the right to request erasure of personal data related to them on any one of a number of grounds including non-compliance with article 6.1 (lawfulness) that includes a case (f) where the legitimate interests of the controller is overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data “

The infosec industry and the infosec culture is so diverse, with many different points of view, many different thoughts and opinions, and many of us deal with our own internal demons, like addictions, mental afflictions like depression or bipolar disorders. And 'imposter syndrome' is another thing that seems to add to the mix, making some believe they have to be constantly innovating or people think negatively of them.

So this week, we invited Ms. Magen Wu (@tottenkoph), and Danny (@dakacki) and we discuss some coping mechanisms at things like conferences, and if you work at home, like a lot of consultants and researchers do...

Jay Beale works for a pentest firm called "Inguardians", and has always been a fierce friend of the show. He's running a class at both BlackHat and Defcon all about hardening various parts of the Linux OS. This week, we discuss some of the concepts he teaches in the class. 

Why do we disable Selinux? Is it as difficult to enable as everyone believes? What benefit do we get from using it? 

We also discuss other hardening applications, like ModSecurity for Apache, Suhosin for PHP, and Linux Containers (LXC). What is gained by using these, and how can we use these to our advantage?

Really great discussion with Jay, and please sign up for his class for a two day in-depth discussion of all the technologies discussed on the show.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/System_call

 

In computing, a system call is the programmatic way in which a computer program requests a service from the kernel of the operating system it is executed on. This may include hardware-related services (for example, accessing a hard disk drive), creation and execution of new processes, and communication with integral kernel services such as process scheduling. System calls provide an essential interface between a process and the operating system.”

This week, we discuss hardening of windows hosts, utilizing CIS benchmarks. We talk about the 'auditpol' command. And we dredge up from the ancient times (2000) the Microsoft article from Scott Culp "The 10 Immutable Laws of Security Administration". Are they still applicable to today's environment, 17 years later?

10 immutable laws of Security administration: https://technet.microsoft.com/library/cc722488.aspx

Really great stuff

On This Page

Law #1: Nobody believes anything bad can happen to them, until it does

Law #2: Security only works if the secure way also happens to be the easy way

Law #3: If you don't keep up with security fixes, your network won't be yours for long

Law #4: It doesn't do much good to install security fixes on a computer that was never secured to begin with

Law #5: Eternal vigilance is the price of security

Law #6: There really is someone out there trying to guess your passwords

Law #7: The most secure network is a well-administered one

Law #8: The difficulty of defending a network is directly proportional to its complexity

Law #9: Security isn't about risk avoidance; it's about risk management

Law #10: Technology is not a panacea
