In the last 10 years podcasts have gone from an obscure internet oddity (originally using the RSS format to spread audio information) to creating a new golden age of radio. From true crime to horror fiction to covering any professional topic imaginable, there’s a podcast out there for everyone.
And that includes cybersecurity pro’s. No matter what aspect of security you’re involved with or interested in, there’s a podcast that can help you learn more, grow your skills, give you a new perspective, or make you laugh.
Movies are a powerful part of our modern culture and influence us in ways we seldom think about—from the clothes we wear to the music we listen to...even our career choices and how we think about them. Over the years technology has played an ever bigger role in our lives, and that’s been reflected in films of the past 40 years. But as technology has become a thematic element, exploiting it and securing it has also emerged as a major part of film, and that’s had a profound influence over the years on both the technology and cybersecurity industries, both as a source of inspiration...or as just something to laugh about or have fun with.
RSA Conference (RSAC) is one of those few industry events that I look forward to every year where I get to play a humble student, learn from fellow security geeks and also be a thought leader for our customers and partners. The year of 2021 was no different. Having recently set my foot into Uptycs, an innovative cloud native security analytics startup, I wanted to share an outside-in story on RSAC 2021 through our customer's lens.
It has been a year since our last round of funding and I’m pleased to be back to share that we've experienced quite the journey in the last 12-months: growth in team, customers, revenues, and a $50M Series C. We're firing on all cylinders.
Research by Siddartha Sharma and Ashwin Vamshi
Uptycs' threat research team has discovered a new Botnet named ‘Simps’ attributed to Keksec group primarily focussed on DDOS activities. We discovered the Simps Botnet binaries downloaded via shell script sample and Remote Code Execution vulnerability exploits by Gafgyt - detailed in our earlier post.
