S5E4: Jonathan Rau - The Modern Security Data Landscape

Nikki - With your current role as a Distinguished Engineer - I know you focus a lot on cloud security. What does being a DE entail? Do you do some research along with your other duties?

Chris: We've seen the discussion around data in the security space evolve quite a bit. From legacy environments with a SIEM/SOC centralized approach, oriented around "collecting all the things" to now discussions around data lakes, analytics, and automation among others. Can you discuss the evolution a bit with us and your thoughts on it?

Chris: I've been reading pieces lately that are pushing the narrative that there isn't "security" data, there's just business/organizational data, some of which has security context/use. What are your thoughts on this? It seems to be in-line with a push for security to be more tightly coupled with and speak the language of the business.

Nikki - Recently you were posting about the AWS IR guide and even getting into some logging with AWS. Logging is one of those areas that I'm super interested in - especially from an IR perspective. What do you think about where we are with security logging guidance and what should organizations know about setting up complex logging environments? 

Chris: As we continue to watch the security data space evolve I know you've been championing the concept of, and even have written extensively about the term "SecDataOps". What is this exactly, and why do you feel like it is the time to have the industry move this direction?

Chris: We're also seeing a push for standardized logging formats, such as the Open Cybersecurity Schema Framework (OCSF), which has gotten support from some of the largest tech companies. How important is it for the industry to rally around a standardized cybersecurity schema/framework and what are the challenges of not doing so?


 Nikki - You have also done some Board Advising and taken on several Advisory roles for Boards. Two part question - what got you interested in taking on an advisory role and what would you suggest for other technical practitioners who want to get more involved at the Board or executive level? 

 Nikki - What does cyber resiliency mean to you?
