Simple Misconfigurations Are Often the Result of Systemic Problems

We hear so many stories of breaches happening from what appears to be a simple mistake. A permission was granted that shouldn’t have, or something wasn’t configured right. Oh, someone just made a simple error and didn’t check that box, right?

It’s not so simple, said Tarek Khaled, founding sales engineer at Veza. The way these mistakes are reported, it seems quite simple. But the reality is these mistakes happen because of a chain of issues. Poor cybersecurity hygiene is what results in these mistakes.

Check out this video which is a tease for the Super Cyber Friday event happening this Friday, July 28th, 2023. Our topic of discussion will be “Hacking Bad Permissions: An hour of critical thinking about the domino effect of unknown access settings.”

Register for 7-28-23 Super Cyber Friday.

We’re setting up an awesome show. Joining Me and Tarek for this discussion will be David Tyburski, vp of information security and CISO, Wynn Resorts.

It all starts at 1 PM Eastern/10 AM Pacific. At the end of the hour [2 PM Eastern/11 AM Pacific] we’ll switch gears to our meetup where everyone will get a chance to chat face to face.
