So You Want to Be a Cyber Warrior? Prospects are Good

Cyber Warrior
Would you like to be a hacker, but only want to work for the good guys? With the rapid increase in cyber-attacks, governments and businesses around the world are rushing to hire or train the best technology talent they can find to secure their classified and private information.Cyber warrior has gone from a term in science fiction to a job classification that is essential to Internet security.Governments are at a distinct disadvantage in competing for such talent. Private corporations understand the value added to their bottom line by cyber expertise and are willing to pay salaries that the public sector cannot match.

The US government is hiring and training young talent which, predictably, leaves in a few years to cash-in on better offers from the corporate world. The business world is also more responsive to change and, in most cases, offers the opportunity to work with the more cutting edge technologies than the government uses.

Major universities throughout the United States and elsewhere are offering degrees in cyber security, though not everyone agrees that it makes sense as a degree fields. After all, a proficient security expert should have strong knowledge across a variety of technology disciplines, including software engineering, programming and networking.

A smaller number of schools are offering degrees in cyber war, a growing specialty in the military and intelligence communities. What’s the difference between cyber security and cyber war? Not much. They are really different facets of the fields if Internet security and network security. The main difference is that the cyber war has an offensive component that you do not usually find in cyber security and the corporate environment.

I say “usually” because corporate espionage is illegal in the US, but it does go on illegally and outside the states. China has been accused of sanctioning cyber espionage against American corporations and government agencies. While there is no question it is happening, the relationships between the Chinese government, its military and the countries business sector are murkier than with western countries.

Comodo’s Dragon Labs division are specialists in “white hat testing services. We currently have an opportunity in our Chennai, India office for a penetration tester if you have the experience and want to work for the good guys!

Airgain announced the release of its OMNIMAX Next Dipole antennas, the latest addition to Airgain’s 5G product portfolio designed to deliver ultra-wideband connectivity for 5G NR sub-6GHz IoT and M2M applications.

The OMNIMAX Next Dipole series includes 5G NR sub-6GHz products for low profile and shock resistant outdoor applications, including “salt shaker” style antennas, indoor dipole “paddle” antennas, and outdoor “candlestick” dipole antennas.

Each product is designed to blend into the environment, with flexible mounting options while providing ultra-wideband connectivity for virtually any indoor or outdoor cellular module, modem, or gateway. The 5G ready OMNIMAX Next Dipole series provides future-proof performance, with backward compatibility from 5G to 4G and 3G global frequency bands.

“Supporting sub-6GHz 5G, particularly the lower bands approaching 600MHz, is challenging for the form factors of these products,” said Kevin Thill, Airgain’s Senior Vice President of Engineering.

“These antennas achieve excellent broadband performance without compromising the form factor, while outperforming competing solutions that we have seen in the market today. These antennas feature a unique and patent pending Coplanar Waveguide feed, which is key to enabling the ultra-wideband performance in the given form factors.

“We are excited to offer the expansion of our product portfolio of 5G ready antennas designed to accommodate wider bandwidth requirements demanded by 5G. The OMNIMAX Next Dipole series provides a cost-effective solution while delivering dependable quality.”

Tom Finan on human imperfection and cyber security culture




A craftsman never blames their tools. It is not the systems  that ultimately fail cyber security professionals- it’s the people. Insider threats do abound but more often than malfeasance, misfeasance is the key to a breach. It wasn’t the firewall that failed Capitol One, it was a misconfiguration. Tom Finan dives in on culure vs. strategy quoting both Peter Drucker and…Barbara Streisand.  

Episode Overview

Covid 19 has changed 2020 in unprecedented ways in how we work, live our lives, and measure Cyber Risk. Listen to Episode #141 of Task Force 7 Radio as the Cyber Growth Leader from Willis Towers Watson, Tom Finan and Co-Host Andy Bonillo dive into how the “Cyber Security Superheroes” are working together to manage the human element during the pandemic. As claims data shows, effective Cyber Risk prevention and mitigation is largely a people problem. In response, companies need to assess and analyze the elements of their cultures that shape both positive and negative cyber attitudes and behaviors that makes the human element one of the largest risks to a company.

Axio announced a strategic partnership with cybersecurity consulting firm Archer. This partnership will merge Archer’s expertise in critical infrastructure protection with the Axio360 platform and allow clients to measure cyber risk exposure in financial terms and manage their cybersecurity program from a holistic point of view.

The Axio360 platform will assist Archer’s clients in identifying cyber risks across business units and threat vectors that may not have previously been considered. The platform estimates all-in costs of exposure and evaluates how specific controls and mitigations will reduce risk.

“The Axio platform was built to fundamentally redefine how organizations solve cybersecurity problems. Our intention is to enable business-centric decision-making by putting the risk in financial terms,” said Brendan T. Fitzpatrick, Senior Vice President of Channels & Partnerships for Axio.

“Our operating system aligns all key constituents and delivers clarity in real-time. This partnership with Archer allows our software to make critical infrastructure safer and more secure.”

“This partnership allows our asset owners to receive tailored recommendations from Axio and our dedicated team. For the first time, our clients will be able to measure their cybersecurity program and benchmark it across their industry peers,” stated Patrick C. Miller, Managing Partner for Archer.

“This collaboration will help the overall assessment and understanding of cybersecurity risk for critical infrastructure.”

Axio360’s methodology and software empowers organizations to continuously answer the four most critical questions for cyber risk:

  • What’s my exposure in financial terms?
  • How should I manage my cyber program?
  • Do I have the financial ability to recover?
  • Where should I invest?
