    Tech Segment: How To Fix Identity & Access Management, Federico Simonetti - 6:30 - 7:30PM

    - Serial entrepreneur with several successful exits in his past
    - Hardcore software designer, with award-winning software titles on his resume

    Topic: How to fix Identity and Access Management
    All IAM solutions are logically flawed from a security standpoint, they either ask for a synchronized copy of the identity database or for open inbound ports on the firewall. But there is a design that fixes all those issues, making IAM much safer.

    Larry's Stories

    Lee's Stories

    1. Singapore passes anti-fake-news law Requires debate to be based on a foundation of truth, honor and honesty. The definitions of falsehood and public interest in the bill remain concerns. This is one to watch.
    2. White label GPS trackers hacked Generic GPS trackers SIM can be reset by hackers to enable and change functionality such as enabling the microphone. Security appears to be an afterthought. Also the question of why these features exist in a GPS tracker comes to mind.
    3. Microsoft RDP/wormhole patch Microsoft issues patch for RDP services to close RCE hole. Patch includes Windows XP update.
    4. WhatsApp used to distribute malware WhatsAPP on Android and iOS can be used to distribute malware. Update released 5.13 resolves the flaws.
    5. US House of Representatives requires Information Security trainng The US House of Representatives is just requiring itself to complete annual cyber training. In today's threat environment, quarterly and monthly training is more the norm, and NIST SP 800-53 already requires it for federal information system users.
    6. Supply Chain Security training legislated Training proposed for acquisition officials on the heals of ASUS and other similar hardware issues. Supply chain defects bypasses traditional perimeter protections, and has to apply to anyone processing your dats.
    7. Cisco Router bug in boot Trust Anchor While not being actively exploited, update your cisco routers NOW, check the Cisco Advisory for specific products and updates
