Tucker Carlson: Apple Purposely Disabled AirDrop Feature in China
"Cut 66, Tucker Carlson talks about how Apple has limited the AirDrop feature in China, play cut 66. Earlier this month, Apple did the bidding of the Chinese government to crush domestic protests against the Communist Party there. Apple did this by disabling its permanent AirDrop feature in China. So why did Apple disable that feature in China? Well, because that feature permanent AirDrop allows iPhone users to communicate directly with one another without using the Internet or cellular networks, both of which in a totalitarian state like China are controlled by the government. And that's why when iPhone users in China began using permanent AirDrop to complain about the Communist Party, Apple just shut it down. Apple is now an active collaborator with China's police state. Someone emailed this freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com. Michael says, you need to move on from Apple products to set an example. That's fine. I acknowledge that. That's why I led with that. I didn't want to act as if I was immune from enriching apple's ability to grow very powerful over our country. And what's so illuminating for conservatives is that for years, we were always told that if we had free markets and lower taxes that things would solve themselves through natural competition and that rule is generally true, but what happens when a company itself begins to infringe on civil liberties? What happens when a company doesn't actually act in their best profit interest, but actually acts in their ideological interest? The CEO of Apple Tim Cook, he is far more interested. In protecting and preserving the Leviathan that Apple has become Apple, similar to Google, by the way, has become its own government. Now,
Rep. Ken Buck: The Value of Content Neutrality
"I think Apple excuse me has the solutions easiest for Apple Apple should allow sideloading of apps Now I like to give both sides I'm not interested in propaganda here Apple's take which isn't illegitimate is going to be well we don't want to let people side load apps because they can be scam apps they can be corrupted There's got to be some kind of quality standards but again the calendar to that is well you can have a set of standards and a vetting process and as long as it's transparent standards everybody can see and meet everybody will be abiding and playing by the same rules But in my opinion I'd like your opinion on it Obviously I think Apple presents the easiest antitrust anti monopoly solution by just doing that I think that's a great solution and what I would want to get from the law that would require that is that there is content neutrality If you're saying you want to prohibit porn on Apple devices great you can say that but you can't say that you want to prohibit hate speech and then you define hate speech as one of the political spectrum or the other And it's really the worst player in this area is Google Google discriminates against Republican fundraising emails Google discriminates against conservative views at the same time they're in China working with China to develop systems that are crushing the protests the very embryonic free speech that's occurring in other countries
The Left Is Floundering Now That Twitter Is a Place of Free Speech
"The savage and brute force tactics of oppression enjoyed by leftists and their aligned mega corporations and banks has had a counterintuitive effect. An effect akin to using performance enhancing drugs. They reaped short term gains, but at the expense of developing natural talent. Now that their supply has been effectively cut off, and they have to share a level playing field, they are floundering. They don't know how to behave when the game isn't fixed in their favor. This doesn't necessarily mean that Twitter is now a conservative echo chamber, or that it has become an arm of the GOP. Absolutely not. You can still find all sorts of skirmishes, as well as sub worlds within Twitter, but it does mean that conservatives finally have a chance to offer counter arguments of their own without being censored. For such a seemingly small change, it's turning out to be a really big deal. Before this, we had Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Google, and YouTube all censoring us. Now that one of those has allowed us to speak, it puts a dent in their House of Cards. The fact that Elon Musk is now running Twitter is a far bigger blow to the establishment than any political victory during the midterms could have been. AOC's head is already exploding and Elon Musk is loving it. Twitter before Musk was a carefully curated potemkin village. A false facade that maintained the appearance of leftist thought dominance through the wholesale and ratio of conservatives. Since ownership has changed, there's already been a major change in the types of topics and opinions trending on the site. More people are talking openly and freely about things like medical data and other topics that can still get you banned off of sites like YouTube.
Kyle Seraphin: FBI Created Geofence Around Jan. 6 Rally
"And even some of the lefties are starting to ask questions which is shocking saying hey listen that's kind of strange You got all the cell phone data from Google without a warrant of all those people there Even if they were doing nothing wrong now you're a constitutionalist as strong a constitutionalist as anyone That kind of sounds to me like a prohibited general Warren does it And how antsy constitutionally are you going to get It's really dangerous So the FBI has a program that's called the cellular analysis survey team or cast And it's not very many guys that do it It's very very highly specialized Their agents that do it full-time And they do cell phone tower dumps where they pull all the data out of it Those are usually with a warrant They'll do it They do these geofence warrants They'll help kind of write them and they have ongoing contacts with places like Google and all the different cell phone providers and whatnot And yeah it sounds like a general war It's been upheld in the courts so far but I'm really uncomfortable with the way that it does it because it's essentially the FBI's ability to look back in time and find out who was physically in a place at that time without a specific allegation that those persons were involved There's no PC The only PC they have is that something happened but not that the people that they're looking at were involved in it And so the courts had held up but right now but essentially all they got to do is they got to say this is a time and a place that we're interested in This is a geographic location And this is the degree of certainty that we think like a cone of uncertainty that it kind of projects because these are not down to the minute the meter It's going to give you some plus or minus location information But Google grabs everything They grab where you bounced off somebody else's you know their Wi-Fi network as your phone is constantly out there with your Wi-Fi on pinging against it And so it logs all that information and it goes into your Google account And they keep that stuff on you forever So they know wherever you've done Everyone who's been wondering you know how your ad IDs work and all that This is all part of it And yeah they write a general warrant for it They find out all the cell phones that were in that area and that cell phone is almost always in fill in the blank person's pocket It's pretty easy to tie that to a person
Matt Palumbo: The Truth in 'The Man Behind the Curtain'
"I thought you'd be a great guy to have on today Because Soros is part of this kind of great reset crowd And you know I know the fact checkers love to bounce all over these term new world order great reset the irony being It's usually their terms Not hours But they love the idea of a crisis Appending financial crisis a healthcare crisis Because they want to reorder society from the top down Soros is one of these guys He took advantage of the George Floyd incident to leverage his assets into this defund the police movement got all these prosecutors elected and look what happened Yeah I mean one of the weirdest things about the book is you know obviously it gets portrayed And I covered a lot of this stuff but it gets portrayed as a conspiracy theory when all the information I got on source is from source I mean his organization society foundation does an annual report and it's almost like a corporate ten K like an annual report of corporation with an issue where they go through their income their expenses where the money is going and all the info in my book is directly from Soros And then the response I get is oh that's not only curatorial it's somehow anti semitic So it's obviously impossible to win with these people but yeah everything I exposed about Soros is basically sourced from source himself and you were mentioning the defund the police movement and the fact checkers I just finished up with manuscript on the fast checking industry and cover the Soros has something of a role in that He's actually funded the pointer institute which is PolitiFact's parent company And I stumbled upon it by accident because I was Googling Soros name and I saw it paid ads Did you know you can pay for it you know to have your ad placement on Google search results and there was a paid ad from PolitiFact And it said something like you know learn the truth about George Soros and it was one of these fact checks where they're trying to downplay him by debunking somebody tangential So they were saying like yeah it's not true he gave tens to hundreds of millions of dollars to Black Lives Matter He just gave the money to these 20 groups that believe it identical things to them and also protests and riots So that's kind of how they operate And yeah that's the source of gender right now
"google" Discussed on Cloud Security Podcast by Google
"And their respective users, their citizens, et cetera. For example, in the U.S., The White House has a mandate to implement about 90 or more controls for their agencies to meet the zero trust security model criteria. In the EU, we are seeing stricter regimes to ensure safety FBI data. And so in Google workspace, we are trying to keep a very close watch on these developments. A lot of times these are prescribed over time. And so we have to keep in close eye to understand what these regulatory teams means. For the most part for U.S. public sector, I think getting the agencies to adopt zero trust controls is something which the industry has aligned to as well. And we are trying to make sure that we can offer the right set of tools over there. Speaking of two sets, it's always hard to find those unique approaches that will make your environment safer. One example I'll typically like to call out particularly for EU sovereignty purposes is our unique approach to what we call as client side encryption, where the customer data is entirely inaccessible to Google for privacy and confidentiality reasons. This is a

The Obsolete GOP Election Model With Newt Gingrich
"Speaker, can you speak a little bit to the fact that it seems as if Democrats were less worried about engaging in debates like Katie Hobbs or fetterman, but they're more interested in chasing ballots than actually convincing voters. Is it time for us to change the way we think about elections as well? Yeah, look, I think the Republican doctrine for elections is just wrong. It's obsolete. It doesn't fit the modern world. Let me start with something you said just before the break, by the way. And that is that. The win read numbers are much smaller than the democratic system. Part of that is because as much as 5 or 6 years behind in development, but part of it is that Google in particular refuses to deliver and I talked with Ron mcdaniel about this that Republican National Committee chair before the election. Routinely, the last four days of the month, Google manages to not deliver Republican emails. And so from a fundraising perspective, the largest single delivery system in the country was methodically biased against the win read and in favor of act blue. And that was a factor. The other big difference, you put your finger on exactly. And I'm trying to put together now sort of a list of things that we need to learn if we're not going to repeat this in 2024. Democrats focus on winning the election, Republicans focus on campaigning. Part of that, I think, is the way the consulting system works. Republican consultants make a lot of money out of placing TV ads. They have a big bias in favor of media, whether it's effective or not. Democrats start out with the idea that I don't care how the campaign goes. I want to know when it's over. Did I win the election? And so if you watch them, they're much more ruthlessly centered. They start they start collecting votes much earlier, which means they can tell you who on their basis already voted and who they need to focus on.
Caller: How Do We Pronounce All of the Pronouns on the List?
"Well, I just wanted to contribute a little to the pronoun conversation. Today at my workplace, I worked for a pretty large corporation, but we kind of function independently to an extent. And we noticed today that we now have a pronoun option for all of our clients. So we work with animals. So the owners of these animals, I guess, now have the option to tell us what they want to be called or how they want to be addressed, and we can select from a list, the issue is the list is so long. We don't even know how to pronounce a lot of these programs. It's hard. I just went through the list. I'm sure I mispronounced a number of this 97 new gender options now. Well, now a lot of our employees, we can choose our own pronouns on our own accounts for our own pets. And a lot of our employees have decided to go with yo because we all just want to be able to yell yo at everyone around the hospital, excuse me, my workplace. And just refer to each other as yo and get by with it. This is unbelievable amber. Did you ever imagine we would live in a time where there would be this sort of pronoun confusion across the nation? No, no, and I asked my hospital manager what some of these myths and we tried to Google it and the answer that she got on Google in all the jargon was that it is healthy to be confused about your gender and your orientation. And I guess my response to that is Google says it's healthy to be confused, but what I've always read is that the devil is the author of all confusions. So where does that photo? All right
Skirmishes Ensue Between Elon Musk and Disgruntled Twitter Employees
"Elon Musk is really showing how it's done. With regard to cleaning up Twitter. Just think about it. You've got this company, a technologically sophisticated platform, but it's like infested with ideological rats. Horrible people, people who take pleasure in blocking censoring and controlling other people. In other words, little monsters. And you can't just come in and say, these are my new directives. You have to kind of go in and start fumigating the place and getting rid of rats. And so Musk has been doing that. He's been firing rats, which is to say, getting rats out of the building, very good thing. He has also been making it clear that the rats stay. Need to be committed to the vision of the company. So in other words, if you're a rat and you have a different view of what Twitter should be, or frankly, a different view of the work expected out of you and I'm gonna come to that. A Musk has a very surprising demand of his workers he expects them actually to work. And this as we'll see is producing some convulsions at Twitter where for apparently months, if not years, the attitude is basically been Twitter as a place to hang out, eat free meals, watch TV, hang on social media, and then essentially get on online and start knocking banning D platforming and restricting people. So it was really fun in the old days and in that sense, Elon Musk has seen as a spoilsport for bringing the fun to an end. The skirmishes between Musk and the employees seem to focus on three areas. One, Elon Musk is firing people who openly abuse him on Twitter. These are his own employees who tell him he's an idiot. He doesn't know what's going on. He doesn't really know what programming really is. I mean, think about it. This is a guy who's built a massive company. Most of these people are little dwarfs. And they're like, you don't know what do you think about coding? You don't know anything about marketing. You don't know anything about running a company, and then Elon Musk replies, you're fired. And they're like, wait, wait, what? I thought dissent was permissible. Yeah, descend is permissible generally in most companies, but you know what? They're mechanisms and forums for dissent. Such as making a confidential report, raising a point at a meeting, as opposed to blasting your boss on a public forum.
The Total Incompetence of President Joe Biden
"I want to talk about the mental incompetence, well, there's also physical and competence. The overall incompetence of our dear leader, Joe Biden. Now, interestingly, when Trump was president, they were all over him for the slightest misstep, or the slightest mispronunciation. You remember the big controversy over Trump using the pronunciation thigh land, not instead of Thailand. Thailand. People would, this was outrageous. He doesn't even know how to say Thailand. And now this is a complex matter and I kind of got involved in that contour. I pointed out, first of all, that virtually everybody on the entire continent of South Asia pronounces it by land. They pronounce it the way it's spelled. They pronounce the H now, interestingly, in the Thai language, there is no real H and so they say Thailand. But that is simply an anomaly of the Thai language. Let's remember that the names of different places are pronounced differently around the world. The French say Paris, we say Paris. And so it goes same with Italy venezia and we say Venice. And so you would think that all of this is like a triviality. Why are you getting on Trump? But this just shows you how they were like, let's get them on that. Now with Biden, what's increasingly obvious is that this guy is a mental infant. Or at least he has to be treated like a mental infant. You might remember some months ago, a notecard surface. Biden sort of clumsily held it where you could see it. And it was reproduced on social media and on TV and I did a segment on it and it said things like take your seat. As opposed to going and sitting in someone else's seat and the kind of instructions you'd give to Debbie Todd elementary school to kind of the kind of instructions you would give to like a 5 year old. Listen, take your seat. Don't speak unless spoken to. Things like this. And Benny Johnson on social media had something yesterday where the same thing happened to second time. Biden had a notecard. Apparently turned in a certain way so you can actually read the note card and the note card has it's like an all caps. Again, it has that notion that we're talking to somebody who's really not all there. We have to treat this person. So here are a few of the instructions, one, you will take a photo. And the U is all caps, as if to say Biden might be confused about who's you will take a photo. You will sit. You is all caps. Again, you will deliver opening remarks. So this is a, this is an embarrassment.
Berlin Court Orders Rerun of 'Chaotic' 2021 State Election
"Debbie spotted this from ABC News. Just yesterday, Berlin court orders rerun of chaotic 2021 state election. This is very interesting. This is an election from last year, 2021. It was held in the German capital, in fact, it turns out it was multiple elections were going on at the same time. A state election, which means this is the state of Berlin, Berlin, by the way, is the capital of Germany, and it is a city, but it's also a state, so that in the state of Berlin, there was state elections. There was also an election for the city's 12 district assemblies, the German national election was going on at the same time, and then there was a local referendum that was also on the ballot. So Germans in Berlin were voting on all these different things. Well, as it turns out, there was and this sort of reminds me a little bit now Maricopa County, although maybe it was even worse. Huge lines at polling stations, some polling stations ran out of ballot paper during the day, other polling stations produced ballot paper, but it was for the wrong district. So there was the wrong information on the ballot, not applicable to what the voters were voting for. And a huge number of ballots were invalidated because they were for the wrong ballot or the wrong place or the wrong cause. And also the election was supposed to end at 6 p.m., but it turns out that voters who were in line were allowed to vote long after 6 p.m., but results of the election were already being called and people exit polls were being revealed and how people voted and people were being declared winners and losers, and lots of people were still in line and hadn't voted at all, so their votes weren't even counted and presumably if you hear an election's been calling about your in line, you're going to think, well, what's the point of me staying in line? I may as well go home and eat dinner. And so the German court to its credit looked at all this and go, they go, this was not. The safest and most secure election in German history,
Google Manipulates Search Results to Help Democrats in Elections
"As I reflect upon the dismal results of the midterms, I'm trying to think about all the different ways in which the playing field could have been manipulated. You can say un leveled either by the Democrats explicitly or by their allies in the media in the tech community and so on. And I'm reminded of the work of one particular psychologist. This is doctor Robert Epstein, who has been studying the impact of Google in manipulating search results. Now, who is doctor Epstein? Well, here we go. He's a senior research psychologist at the American institute for behavioral research and technology. This is in California. He's been a research psychologist for 40 years. He's been on the board of psychology today and scientific American mind. He's a PhD from Harvard University, he's written 15 books more than 300 scientific and mainstream articles. And he has really been focusing since 2012, so now for a decade. On what tech platforms in general, but specifically Google. See Google isn't a very unique position because think about it. Google has become kind of a well a verb. Let's Google it. And let's Google it means let's get more information about it. Let's run a search. And while there are a couple of other smaller search platforms much, much smaller, Google really has a virtual monopoly. And this gives me Google in a way more powerful than the other platforms. And let's remember Google also owns YouTube. So Google has that kind of combined power. Now, what Robert Epstein has found is that Google has systematically manipulated search results. And they do it particularly to influence elections. He's been arguing that they've been doing this for a while, but it's quite possible that they have even ramped it up in recent elections. Now, Google sort of denies they're doing this, but Epstein's evidence seems to show that they do it.

The Democrats Have Ran on Nothing
"We have had to stare down for years now is, as we are saying, we hold these views and we think yours are wrong or yours aren't as good or maybe if we're really ramped up yours are dangerous. That will come up every once in a while. It'll come up today. What we've gotten in return from the left is these are our views and you are stupid. These are our views and you are evil. These are our views and you are racist. These are our views and you are Hitler. It used to be that, in fact, there's an old axiom, a maxim, a premise, I'll Google it in a minute of how long it takes for somebody in any debate to invoke Hitler, and that's when you know they've pretty well lost and they've gone to the mat. Hitler. As soon as you invoke that, and it's kind of a, it's spoken of mockingly. But I'm dead serious about this. There was James Clyburn the third most powerful Democrat. In the house. And there he was, given the opportunity to distance from what he had said about that if Republicans win, it's Hitler back from the dead. And he said, no, we've seen this before. We have seen it before. And the world still exists. He said, we're not saying the world is going to end. The world didn't end when Hitler arose, he said. On Fox News Sunday was Shannon breen. He said, you know, Hitler came before Hitler after Hitler, there was still world, but this is the choice that we face. There was Joe Biden a moment ago saying democracy itself is on the ballot as if there is a danger to democracy. This is all they have. This is all they have.
Grant Stinchfield on the 'Build It and They Will Come' Mentality
"A businessman and you are a successful businessman, what do you think of this idea that build it and they will come if they're not treating you right, just build the alternative in an age where you've got monopolies and cartels, which is basically what Google, Twitter and Facebook are. Do we not run the risk of creating a little conservative ghetto for whatever it is? Well, we do and at the risk of comparing myself to Elon Musk on a very low level. But Elon Musk did what I do when it comes to business philosophy. So I've always said that I am not an entrepreneur. An entrepreneur risk is it all and he goes out and he starts something, something new and built it. That's what president Trump and our Friends over through social are doing and get her. They're building something new. That's entrepreneurship. What I have done over the years, whether it's buying an auto care business, whether it's buying a trucking company, I have bought small businesses, they're cash flowing by them, build them and sell them for a profit. What Elon Musk did with Twitter is the exact same thing. He didn't go start his own. He went and bought one now. I don't think it was cash flowing, but he bought a business that's already there. It's not really entrepreneurship. It's buying a business, build it, and then ultimately sell it for more. And I think he will be able to sell it for more. So I do worry too, Sam about the true socials the getters and all these other things. Does it splinter everyone? Honestly, they're not as fun as Twitter was back in the old days when it was free. Maybe it'll be now. I'd rather have the melting pot of everybody just going at it because I felt like my message was being seen by more people. And people that mattered, but
Founder Rob Collins Tells Us About His Conservative Credit Card Coign
"Joining us now is rob Collins from coin as many of you remember. We really partner with coin and they have a waiting list very long, which is a great problem to have. Rob, welcome back to the program. Give us the update from coin. So we continue to grow. We launched being in May, exceeded our expectations. Even our lofty goals, and we've been onboarding customers since July, the experience has been great. We're in both app stores. We're in the Apple wallet. We're getting in the Google wallet. And I spent the summer criss-crossing this country talking to patriots and saying, here's what we did with a little bit of money. I need more money. Let's grow this thing. The great thing about credit card businesses is that we don't need cardboard or labor or anything we just need money. And to grow. And so we had an unbelievable summer. The people who stepped forward and said, I really believe in the vision. You know, a conservative credit card that will not only push back and organize conservative commerce to have a voice in every boardroom in America and reorient boardrooms in America, but also build up the conservative movement with charitable donations to conserve great conservative causes. Please, can I invest? Can I help you out? And like I said, I spent the summer raising money and we had an unbelievable success. And every day, our membership goes up, the number of cards that are out in circulation continues to grow. We're doing a big push right after the election, because I know everyone's really focused on the elections, but our customers are. The email and call us about it. But we're not political. We're just trying to make sure there's a conservative voice in corporate America through credit cards. So if some of our audience is on a wait list, you guys are working through that, right? Because we got an email every so often. Is that right? Yeah. I know it's frustrating. I hate weightless. Like every other American lists lines, Disney, whatever it is, I don't like them. But we're trying to disrupt a $100 billion 80 year old market. And so we're a startup. So we're growing our customers, our weightlifters have been super patient. We've been trying to tell them our path. We're going to keep talking to them and saying, this is a journey. Listen, I can see the top of the mountain. The path isn't straight. It's not level. But it's right there in front of us. And we just got to keep moving our feet every day and
The Censorship/Free Speech Debate Has Changed
"With Elon Musk's acquisition of Twitter, the whole censorship free speech debate has changed. Why? Because before this, you had the three major platforms, Twitter, YouTube, Google, all together. Creating an across the board censorship system that you couldn't really escape from. And that meant that as a practical matter, honest debate on a whole range of issues, not every issue, but at least a dozen important issues. Climate, the elections, the trans issue, abortion, other issues, stifled. Regulated with penalties for you may say offending the kind of established orthodoxy. Now, that's changed on Twitter. Twitter is now largely a free speech platform. There's a lot more things to be done. Musk has to clean house, happily. I think he's about to fire a quarter of the Twitter workforce, probably more to come. And he needs to remake Twitter in a free speech. Way. So that you've got a staff that is committed to Elon Musk's own vision of free speech. Now the left is trying right away, which is, this is a very predictable move to throw him into a panic. And to basically say free speech is extremely dangerous. Now, before we get to why it's dangerous, let's look at why free speech is good. There are really two reasons to have free speech. The first is we are speaking or language animals you might say, where were the kind of animal that can think and speak and we are social animals and we are political animals. This goes right back to Aristotle, the ethics and the politics. And so it is part of our humanity to be able to speak our mind and speak what we think and speak what we feel. This is part of our essential dignity and our humanity. So free speech allows us to be us.
"google" Discussed on Cloud Security Podcast by Google
"Aware proxy. Learn more. No, so I think what's really interesting though is so much of our job is about trust at the end of the day. People trust Google with their most personal intimate things. Their photos, their correspondence, their searches at two in the morning. I imagine a lot of what's the value of insider threat detection is really preserving user trust. How important is that to your mission and what you think about in the day to day? It's core to our mission. Like you said, users are users trust and even our employees in many cases. A lot of the data internally is just the sensitive is the data out externally. We have people's information. They trust us with that data. Everything is built on trust. So having strong controls, having detection and response in some cases is the last line, the last stop in that journey, where the last line of defense there. If somebody slips through the controls, it's up to us to detect it, then respond to it, mitigate as appropriate remediate as appropriate. And then take the findings from that back to the engineering teams or to the affected teams to try to prevent it from happening again. To learn from our mistakes. So yes, it's core to our mission. It's the kind of one of the whole reasons we exist is user trust. User data at Google is sacrosanct. The Crown jewel of our crown jewels. It is given that the type of data the data that stored the impact it can have on real people out there in the world is something our entire organization exists to protect that data. Intellectual property obviously is another aspect of this. But user data is what everybody. And it's not just detection or response. It's not just security. Googlers in general really respect the trust our users hold in us for their data. So one fun thing to add to this. And this is kind of this, I mean, I'd rather this kind of sink in with the audience, right? Because it's not IP, it's not like some kind of piece of code, how to do something incredible technically. It's kind of important, but it's secondary after user data. This is sort of good reminder, a good thing to kind of stick on the wall. And I think it got to me too. I feel that, that its user data first IP second. When you say user data first IP second, you feel bad how I'm just curious. No, no, I don't think that. It just feels like it's something that I need to kind of internalize and understand fully. This is how I agree with that, of course. But it's interesting that it's sort of a we think of explicitly. It's crown jewels crown jewels as user data. And all other crown jewels are probably hugely important, just not as important as this. Yeah, I mean, it takes a second to digest. But if you had a stock rank them, just the impact that loss of user data can have on people, it, to me, trumps everything else. That doesn't minimize the impact of the loss of intellectual property. The state secrets the robotics, the artificial intelligence you name it. But user data, people's data, given the effect it can have in real life as we've seen in other instances outside of Google on people. Is the core of trust, the core of core of what we do with an intellectual property as well. It's not like we don't detect exfiltration of intellectual property and follow up on it. But order of precedence, its user data intellectual property. Yeah. That actually makes sense.

"But I think in terms of what is keeping me up at night to steal that from you, is the malicious insiders, because they really are out to cause damage. Whether it's foreign espionage or people looking to take down Google or other malicious actions. I think volumetrically we see a lot more accidents. People click the wrong thing shared the wrong dock to their personal Gmail address instead of their Google Gmail address because they're exactly the same and the dialog had both, and they clicked the wrong button. So volumetrically, the risk is there's more risk there. But I think in terms of impact of risk, malicious insiders, there's kind of a larger impact once they get a foothold. And they do come up in many kind of a classic. I don't know. There's a book of classic security leader nightmares, but malicious technically skilled insider in my mind was always high close to the top of the list. Because imagine somebody with essentially the tech skills of a top tier attacker who's also an insider. I'm probably going to lose sleep this night, frankly. I just said it. And I'm not even possible for it. We don't have to remember that or imagine it. It happened in Google was relevant in that one too. Remember, SSL Adam removed here. That's exactly that case, Anton. Yeah. I mean, and the attackers in terms of an insider have four knowledge of our systems. They know how the systems work. They know where the holes are. They know where the detection is and how to get around it. Not always, right? Not always, hopefully. Not always. I mean, it's a balance between being able to detect it, but I would much prefer we prevent it in the first place. Yes. Training the users because again, the unintentional pieces, training the users is a big part of this. But also putting in strong controls up front so that it doesn't have to get to detection. I'd much prefer that because once we get involved in some cases, the horses left the bar. Not always, but in some cases, the thing is already happened, we can do attribution for it. We saw that it happened we can respond to it. We can remediate what happened, but it still happened. So that's why, again, I focus on the partnerships aspects of how do we prevent this upfront so that we're not involved on the back end. And if we are, we are. But and of course, that happens plenty of times a day. But strong prevention and then strong detection complement each other very well. Yes, they do. So we're going to run an ad for zero trust something right now, right? Okay, right in the net, zero trust. This episode brought to you by

"Twitter dot com slash cloud site podcast. Anton, we are talking to one of the people that was there when Google was attacked with the aurora attack way back now ten, 11 years ago. That's pretty freaking special, isn't it? It is and moreover, Mike has shared some of the details both in the hack and Google video series and on our episode that to me are kind of interesting. Understatement of the year prize interesting. But they're interested as in like, he was there dealing with stuff for the incident that kind of changed the maybe not the fate of the planet, but it had a massive scale, like society wide. I kind of joked that it's plenty wide. It is. It's kind of a big deal. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Was it a deal? Hey, what's the hacking Google video series? Oh, this is the interesting thing that got launched earlier this month. Yeah. That has video interviews with a whole bunch of Googlers during the security. It's almost like any description. Well, no description would do it justice. You really need to watch them. They're not that long, but fun. So people can find those on YouTube and learn more there, yeah? Exactly. Awesome. Well, listeners, I really recommend that you check out the hacking Google video series. It's pretty special to look at how Google keeps people's data safe. With that, let's turn it over to today's guest, who helps keep everybody's data safe here at Google. Delighted to introduce today's guest, Mike Sino, security engineering director for detection and response here at Google Cloud or Google overall really. You were recently featured in our hacking Google videos. We're really excited about these awesome content. Could you share a bit about this effort and the role you played in it? Sure, Tim, thank you and Anton for asking me to join as well. So yeah, I started life at Google as a systems administrator. And specialized in Active Directory. Wow. Oh, no, no. Did you just say Active Directory on the air? Google? I did say Active Directory. Yes, yes, this was a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. So I was one of the domain admins for the AD. And ironically, about 6 months before the incident started, we had just completed renaming the entire Active Directory domain, which at the time I think had been the largest random ever. So I was sitting on my couch and I got a ping from one of the security engineers saying, hey, I need domain admin for the duration of the security incident. And my first question was what incident? And they said, oh, you don't know yet. Can you join this call? So I started I joined a call and they started asking a bunch of Windows questions and then finally decided, can you just come out here? Wow. So I've hopped on the plane literally first flight out of Newark the next day because I'm based out of New York. And from that point, it's a big blur, but a lot of the kind of early work we did was reconfiguring the domain implementing additional security controls, making decisions on who had access who didn't. Most of your Windows Y stuff that everybody kind of cringes at now these days. But as it progressed, it turned into more smart hands because I wasn't a security engineer at that time. I was just not just the systems administrator, but I was a systems admin. So it went from ripping hard drives out of machines all over campus, which I do talk about in the which is tolerated security capability. Yeah. And I talk about it pretty much in depth in the video as well. But driving around campus just in the middle of the night, pulling hard drives.

"Change log. The Google change. Look at that. It's so good. The next one now, because there are not much of the change on it. There's four items. It is the world's shortest change log. Android's July security patch is rolling out to the pixel. Factory images. That's about right. Usually it takes about a week into the month. It's coming out. July 2022 update now rolling out to galaxy devices as well. That's unusual. That's good, Samsung, good job. Google photos is now rolling out. A lot of rolling happening on the change log today. Rolling out a new pop up. Yeah, that's it. It's all rolls. New pop up UI for quick shift quick sharing and library management. I haven't seen it yet, but look for a new interface to quick sharing. I do actually really love these highlights and things that they generate. So I end up sharing those a lot. Pictures of pets and things like that. Yeah, I like the little memory stuff that pops up. Apple does pretty well too with that on their but the last two years it's ridiculous. It's just like you don't like masks. Lots of masks. And there is a new zero day threat. The fourth of the year for Google Chrome, we talked about it yesterday and security now, good news. There is a patch. Your Google Chrome will be patched. It's a fairly serious zero day, so make sure you get the update to your Google Chrome should happen automatically. And that's

"I don't really want to claim that we're doing things in a specially weird or exotic. What? We do most of the things in especially weird manner at Google. What are you talking about? This is Google. Everything here is rocket science. It is special in the weird. If you insist we can run with that. Yeah, we do. I didn't think compared to a previous experiences. Like as I said, the remediation rate is super high, which makes things more interesting, but also helps the pressure quite a bit. But in general, we just have a lot of stuff to look at. I think I mentioned it like we have sort of a coverage model where we try to focus on different areas of the company. Across a certain period of time. And once we actually get back to the start of the cycle, a lot of things will have changed. The velocity, which Google moves. It makes for a lot of surprises. Very frequent manner. So I think that one of the reasons why it keeps being interesting. And it doesn't get really stale. And we have one of the larger teams, we have a really nice diverse team that brings a lot of different backgrounds to the table. And I think that also something that qualifies us and that makes it a cool place to work at. I mean, you mediation rates is something that's higher mediation rate is another bit that falls into this big bucket I have next to my desk that says amazing things that Google does that we just can not teach others to do. Because it's just a question of us being well really smart and really well resourced and really, really care about this with some other companies you can't teach some of the sticks to them. You can't tell them, hey, build this salk model similar to Google. And so in this case, we now have advice about, hey, Bill, this red team similar to Google and suddenly they trip over a lot of things you have to do before that..

"So we were able to lift that restriction fairly recently. That's a pretty cool claim to be able to make. Google's response capabilities are so automated and powerful, even our red team can attack us on Fridays. That's awesome. That actually is. And I think that I wanted to remind others that this whole approach where there is a kind of you can flip the book to the last page where the answers are. If you see something weird, that you can't crack. So the whole log of activities that you can check, but it isn't shoved in your face upfront. It's kind of a makes sense, as kind of to power, I guess, what I would call maybe a purple team in aspect of this, right? So if I am the defender, and I'm noticing something weird, I do have a chance of checking the red team log and see, is it them? And if it's not them, I go ruin my weekend. If it's there, I go talk to them. I go celebrate, you know, drink champagne or whatever. That we caught them. I guess that does make sense. And this is something that started day one or have we evolved to this? Maybe give us a 32nd, maybe not 32nd history of how red team evolved at Google if it makes sense. Because you've been around for a while. It has definitely been an evolution. We didn't start with the numbers we have now. We didn't start with a lot of exercises in parallel. So it's been sort of an organic growth, we started sort of doing those exercises as a 20% thing because red teaming is a concept that is well known in larger industry. And it wasn't as prevalent within Google security teams. And results were just really strong. One of the benefits you have with red teaming versus other ways of security analysis is that you usually have a full narrative, which gives a bit more context on specific books. And yeah, we essentially started in collaboration with blue teams to run these and have figured out over time. What is necessary to have this kind of collaboration? What is necessary to make sure that we don't ruin the weekends, but that we give them enough information. So they are able to figure out what we're doing on short notice. And that was one of the things we did fairly early on and then sort of tweaked as we went along. So tactically, what does that look like? How do you, in practice, collaborate with them? There's a Doc, what else is going on? We have a lot of stakeholder management. It's not the most exciting part about red teaming, I guess. No, but it's important. Yeah, in terms of maintaining good relationships..

"Anton, we are talking about the red team today. Yes, that one's really fun because we kind of discovered that historically episodes focused on something awesome that Google doesn't security are very popular. They tend to be. And so this time we're talking about plasma globes. Is that true? No, no, no, don't give out the spoilers, please. Are we talking about red team in? Just red team. There are no plasma gloves listeners just Rhett gloves are involved until the spoiler time. Until they punch line. No, but this is a really fun episode because we talk about some practical ways that Google's red team has worked to make lives better for themselves, ways they make lives harder for themselves and ways that they work together with the rest of Google security to have red teaming not just be like, look at how clever we are exercise, but really drive better security for Google. And of course, therefore, for our users as well. Yes, indeed. And I think that one good lesson that I've learned from this one is that even if somebody is really high maturity, like, well, Google, there are certain lessons that are that can be kind of cut in little chunks. And the first chunks first stages can be used by other people. So it's not like, oh, Google does things in such an amazing manner, nobody can copy it. Well, that's true. But, well, no, that's not the end of my remark. It's true, but there may be stages that we went through that can be useful as lessons to others. And I think with red team, there are definitely signals of that sort in the episode today. Absolutely. And with that guest, I am delighted to introduce today's guest. Stefan friedlich, a senior security engineer, also known as a heist orchestrator here at Google. Stefan, what is our red team philosophy and approach here because there's lots of ways you could have a red team. How do we do it? Hey, Tim, thanks for the intro and thanks for having me. It's a great question to dive into it right away. I figure I'd start off where it matters. So our mission in a nutshell is that we help to make Google itself more secure by trying to hack it. And what that does is it gives our defensive teams our blue teams an opportunity to sort of have a sparing partner and to see how well our signals are already working. And how we can improve them further. So real sort of the simulation that hopefully prepares us for the real world. Yeah, that's kind of a bit of a vague answer. I guess we asked for a philosophy, so you did give us a philosophy. What about something that's more about the approach and methodology? Yeah, tell us, like, when you're about to run a red team exercise, do you tell the group, hey, by the way, watch out Kubernetes because we're coming for you?.

"Much Apple has in the bank. News you just discussed. But sorry, when you're worth 2 trillion, a couple of 100 billion here or there. A big deal. Not big. I just wonder Google, you know, they talk a lot about trust. They had their head of trust out there and safety and how we're doing more stuff on device we don't sell. They made a big thing. I wish I could find that segment where they say, we don't sell your information to third parties. They just collect it. We just collect it. We don't sell it to anybody. We got your data. I wonder how persuasive that is to everybody. I think most people kind of think of Google as a big advertising and obviously search. But people are pretty savvy now to the fact that when you use Google, you're giving them information about yourself. Yeah. And a lot of people will argue about Google collecting so much information on this. But yet at the same time, they do like the fact that when they get opened up maps, they know that, hey, your job is 20 minutes away and you're going to be on time today. Even though you didn't necessarily say you're trying to go to work. It just knows that you work it so and so and it's a work day of the week. They know that stuff. And sometimes it's convenient. Historically, that's been the problem for Google, right? Remember the Google now and the smart cards. We were excited about that, right? But historically, it's been a problem for them to say on the one hand, we know everything you're doing and we're going to offer you your airplane tickets the minute you write at the airport. And the other hand, but we don't know everything you're doing and we don't want to know everything you're doing. It's going to be important. The more they can demonstrate that it's happening locally on device. And also, honestly, the more really useful it is, in some ways, it becomes less creepy. The creepy aspect is when it's not quite right. When it's a little off, you're just like, oh, I don't really like that. When it just flows naturally, I think a lot of the privacy concerns start to fade away. It depends what do you think are creepy? I think there are a lot of people think Google knows I'm at the airport and is offering me my ticket. They think that's creepy. Even though you and I know how it happened and think it's a good thing, I still think they're people. I mean, the other aspect, and I think this is one of the things that they're working on is just making a lot of that more transparent to you. I think part of the creepiness is if you don't know how it happened and how they have the access to that. That's a good control over it. So if you had more control over it and you saw, this is the information that Google has. This is what they're going to do with it. Then I think people are and the ability to say, actually, I don't want you to have that information. I'm going to delete that. I think that would make me a lot more comfortable. Do you want us to do this? Do you want us and put them in control? When did they also appreciate the pop up today from every time I logged in that was mentioning two FA? And basically trying to shove it down my throat, hey, get to FA, get to a thing. They showed that. They said, the number, but significant number of people have started to use two FA since they forced it on us. A 150 million new factor users, a 150 million new two factor users this year. Because they were requiring it now, which is fine. It's a good thing. That's great. They did say there is going to be a new button when you see an ad or you can go into your Google account and see it. The results about me page, which will show you what Google knows about you and allow you to delete it and can tell it. I think that's good. Yes. I think that's, I think it's a great idea. I mean, it depends on exactly how it's implemented. And I think when they've attempted to do things like that before, you end up seeing this page with so much information that it's effectively useless. I went through one of these things like what Google is using to tailor ads to me once. And it showed all of this information about car dealerships and Texas. And I was like, I have no idea how or why and you could just scroll on for days and days. And not be really clear on it. So if it's providing that information in an interface that is useful and usable and understandable, then yeah, I actually think that's a great idea. The other thing it shows is the computers aren't that smart. They don't know that much about you. They don't do it very well. Yes. I don't know when they added this. But they pointed out that now in search, and this has been here for a while. I guess I just never noticed. There's three dots next to every search result. And you can click that three dots. And find out more about the result. More or less, depending on what the result is. But I think that that's kind of cool. Yeah. It's been there for a while..

Okay. Definitely. I would call that nada Ukraine story. If there's certainly cybersecurity is going to be part of it. Google makes the pitch that it's more important. Now than ever. I've never. They've been talking with Mandy and since before the war. I know this is. The reason I know this is Mandy had talked to us about advertising about a month ago. And then said, hold up.

When you get the play system update, just as you do when you get a version update, now you can go and click the Google Play system update and it will tell you, you can manually update, but it also tell you what is happening.

You are joined now by Marquez brownlee, who said that his aunt hates his pixel 6. He says, super buggy. Marquez says, I'm taking the sim out. This thing is gotten bug here and buggy, and I'm putting it back into my Samsung S 21. Because I can't use it. I haven't had the same problems, but maybe there's a hardware issue. It's clearly for me, it's clearly software. I don't think it's a hardware problem. I think it's the OS and it's so annoying that little things that I do. I hit the back button and the screen goes back three times, two or three times. That sounds like software. Bluetooth still just randomly drops in the middle of me listening to the audiobook that we're going to discuss in the club twit book club and how does the fingerprint reader work for you? That's okay. It's definitely not as good as the hardware button. I just had to tell myself really press because it doesn't work if I don't really press on it. Because I reason I ask is Mary Jeff foley also uses a pixel 6 process. It just doesn't work at all for her. But I think she may and I have a screen protector on too. Here's Marquez's tweet my pixel 6 pro is slowly gotten so buggy since launch, I can no longer recommend it at $900 combined with the latest botched update. It's just been a bad experience, my sim is back in the S 21 ultra until an extra view. Oh, wow. That's pretty harsh. And he has a lot. He carries a lot of money. He's not a TikTok star, or anything like that. But he is also been one to bat. Google's pixel projects too. This isn't just sour gray. He says lots of small annoying things to display constantly drops way below a 120 hertz. The fingerprint sensor is still slower than the rest of the lock screen and auto brightness bug out all the time now. The camera app has started slowing down. By that sound. Camera did slow down for me. Part of my pick of the week, which would get into later, I was out on a shoot using the camera and it was a bit slow that day. And I'm thinking, what is wrong? I thought it was just me, but I noticed it was a little bit laggy between making the contact with the shutter and even navigating through to files. It seems like software to me, not hardware. He says he's on the November patch as most of us are except for those unfortunate few who got the update by accident or early lost all connectivity. That's more. The pork didn't even more. Anyway, they're doing the 12 L beta two right now, which means we might be getting close. They had said it'll be delayed, the update, which supposedly will fix many of these issues. Was supposed to be released in December. It will be delayed. They say there will be one more bit of next month before the consumer release. What? Q 1 March. That's what it does. Oh my gosh. That's ridiculous. You know what? I'm starting to agree with you, Mike Sundar Pichai. Not doing the job. Somebody needs to take the control of that company. Say, look, folks, we got a big OS right now with an expensive piece of hardware that people can enjoy. We need to fix our slight shortage gone through testing before we released it. So yeah, this needs to be priority one. Maybe ricochets are low lost as mojo or something. I don't know. I don't know. 12 L is not the pixel fix. Sorry. Okay, 12 is something else. Sorry. That's coming out. I don't know when the pixel fix is coming out. Here's what Google is changing to speaker group controls and device setup to appease Sonos, the first change applies when setting up and updating your smart display or speaker, a small set of users will need to use the device utility app to complete product installation and updates. You may receive a prompted download and run dua, and it will ensure your device is connected to Wi-Fi and receives the most updated version. It only has to be used once during the initial setup of devices that don't have the latest I get it. The non infringing firmware. So the duo will immediately fix your firmware to be non infringing, and then you'll now have to adjust each speaker individually instead of being able to use the group volume control. That was a nice feature. I remember on my Sonos speakers, one slider would turn everybody in the whole house up and down. It's not so bad. You're going to get this is an example of on the screen. A number of sliders and you can control those. Third party devices have to be updated to new cast firmware besides the volume change Google says speaker group functionality remains the same. Most speaker groups should continue to function as expected. Unless you have a speaker group containing other brands of cast based devices like JBL or Lenovo, then they need to be on 1.5 2.272222 or higher cast firmware, blah, blah, blah..

I really liked French different. That was the Google+ before Google+. I don't make Mike sad. I know. I brought it up. You know what, God damn Google, I'm sorry. I apologize. To all the Christians out there, but I do want God to actually damn Google. Apparently they already have, you know? But honestly, what haven't they destroyed? Look what the messaging mess. And then they now Hiroshi lockheimer has a terrific Gmail. We still have Gmail. We still have Gmail. We still have Gmail. Yeah. That search. Search still works. But we've only been reporting the searches and all that good anymore. That's why that. I don't know if I agree with that. But back to the messaging thing. Yeah, that was so run of audio in the ars technica. Yeah. It's one of those things where it's like, why didn't I write that? It was a piece. It was so good. But he basically points that. First he lays out the case about how Google is complaining that iMessage is too powerful that they use bullying. They actually Google accused Apple of bullying by making people who use Android devices green instead of blue. But this is taking off on The Wall Street Journal article, which because there was nothing else to write about the journal suddenly discovered that people who are using Android messenger feel left out of Apple messages conversations. But after laying out the case that Google is making against Apple, Ron, just eviscerates them by pointing out that since Apple launched iMessage in 2011, same year they launched Google+, by the way, Google launched Google+. Google has launched 13 messaging. I think we've used them all. The only person I ever talked on aloe with was you, Jeff Charles. I know, and that's the only person I ever talked to. The cloud is our conversation. Yeah, I think it's headline. After ruining Android messaging, Google says iMessage is too powerful. Please stop kicking our butts so badly. Google failed to compete with iMessage for years, and now wants Apple to play nice. How many 13? 13 that they've launched in total. They've killed a bunch of them, obviously, 'cause it's Google. But now, even today, they have 8. And they're even incompatible with each other. Jeez. Today they have 8 messaging solutions, but imagine theater of the mind. Imagine if you will, ladies and gentlemen, if after seeing Apple launch iMessage in 2011, Google launched Google messages in 2000, let's call it 2012 and said, this is the only messaging platform we will ever support it's on wheel of platform on everything. It supports all the bells and whistles you can make phone calls. You can do this. You can do that. You can have it on an iPhone, you can have it on an Android phone. They would completely dominate this space if they had done that. Because iMessage has always been primarily for Apple users. They could have made the cross platform. They could have the rewatch app. It would have been like WhatsApp. But no, they are so disorganized and visionless that they just couldn't do that. So Ron also points out because we've talked about this that Google is saying, well, everybody should just use RCS. If Apple would only add RCS to iMessages we'd be happy. He says, even if Google could magically roll out RCS rich community, rich communication messaging standard, rich communication standard. It's a poor standard to build a messaging platform on because it's dependent on a carrier phone. It's anti Internet. It can't natively work on web pages, PCs, smartwatches and tablets, because those things don't have sim cards. They don't have phone numbers. The carriers design RCS. So RCS puts your carrier bill at the center of your online identity, even when free identification methods like email exist and work on more devices. Google is just promoting carrier lock in as a solution to Apple lock in. And unfortunately, I have to agree with him on that. Yeah, but the solution as I intimated a minute ago is for them to have the have an alternative that isn't locked in. Right. To have something like WhatsApp, but from Google, they could have put it everywhere. This is what they did with chrome, chrome has been hugely successful. Yes, yes. Just make it free, make it available. Google benefits because people use it. And just have one earlier discussion of WordPress. Just have one. Yeah. Yeah, Google is only Google. Hangouts would have worked. They were right. I'm audio points out that hangouts is the best thing that best messaging solution that the Google ever came out with. And they killed it. Yeah. It was solid. It wasn't perfect, but it was definitely. The reason messages were one of the reasons best works besides the fact that it's the default messaging app on every iPhone sold and you can't turn it off. The other reason is it degrades properly. So it uses the Internet for data like WhatsApp, but it will also use SMS. And so you can have some assurance that you can iMessage everybody. And then it has desktop, it works. It's a very Apple Y thing because you can't use it anywhere else. And it's actually very secure. And it's secure. Apple knows what you're doing. But other than that, it's secure. Well, I don't think even, well, I mean, theoretically they could find out what you're doing. But it's like it's heavily encrypted. So no third party is going to it's a hell of a lot better than most stuff. I used hangouts for a long time because it worked on my iPhone. It worked on my Android phone. It worked on my desktop. Android messages will kind of do all of that. I have it on all those places. But it's not as good as hangouts. Yeah, there you go. So it's definitely the solution for our family. Yeah, because we could use it everywhere. So you can't bitch Google. What was the rationale for screwing it up? Can you imagine what went through their heads? Ron wrote a long or somebody did. Ours had a long 25,000 word history yet was run history of Google's messaging. And I did that once too. I wrote something like that for computer world. And by the time it was published, it already was out of date because they changed the other thing. You touch it anymore. So it's fun. If you go through all the different apps, Google talk, Google Voice, Google wave. Google buzz. Slides disco. Google Play. I don't know what that is. I don't know. It's in the article that Google+ era. Google+ hangouts video chat, the first hangouts, Google+ huddle messenger..

"Health and fitness 7% productivity had doubled year over year, 6%, and then a big chunk of other. I guess, yeah. Communication publishers did very well on Google Play. According to communications publisher. I have no idea what that is. Well, I think it's your people. Oh, oh, like media. I would think it'd be like blue jeans are zoom. Communication. Oh, now we don't know. New publishers, 139 publishers are projected to surpass the $1 million mark. A publisher is anybody who puts an app up, so thus they are communications apps, thus it's things like communication. They're all publishers. You were right. They all publish apps, which makes no sense, I guess. But when other firm gonna use. No, that's the word. I actually worked post about two books about libraries and stuff that I really liked. Today, and I realized I was putting the verb into publish that was I said or as we call it now share. So it's an antiquated verb. Yes. I have nothing to ask. Sure. Tolerating me going off on these tangents with nothing to say back. What the hell? That killed another 45 in a second. I don't know what that means. Actually, here's a shocker. Are you ready? Yes. Top domains for 2021. Google, which of course dominated for years was number two to.

"We're doing for example in the goal language with fussing as well as shifting left on the scanning process were providing developers. The ability to essentially find these vulnerabilities identify which ones are important and mitigate the risk earlier in the development process so it sounds like google made it easier even for normal people on google type companies to get some of the benefits of supply chain security without doing all of the we've done so we have framework..

"On thursdays just before my chauhan's on photography clot logs and Talk a lot about these types of devices and mr matt cassel nellie uses shortcuts with his ipad to handle a lot of this stuff. What is your command. My command center is usually. It's both google and madame egg. So i set up the routines in those hubs. And then that's how. I control most of these. They act as my hub. So you know. I've i've used home bridge. I've used open. Have i've used smart things homes right. That's what he saying. Yeah and that's what. Michael loves that ties all home bridge ties all your apple stuff to. You're not apple stuff that's not homekit supported and allows you to control all that and that's that's all really great. I just got so tired of spending so much time. Reconnecting things that fell off or tweaking bring in a new or i move a late bulb to someplace else. You've got to go spend all this time to recheck. Her it in. I'm just waiting for matter ways for that to be easier and less manual on me as the administrator or whatever this call was it light late twenty. Nineteen when this was announced. Twenty nine thousand nine. It became matter earlier this year. So those are the same project. Okay yeah and i struggled back there and try to understand it still struggling now okay. Hopefully you don't have to be what you have now. What would we matter comes out. I'm swapping out my door locks for matter. Client locks right. I'm hopeful that most of so my philips hue lights will be matter compliant. I'm super hopeful. Y'all that my lutron stuff is matter compliant especially because it's in the walls. I think my google hubs are next. Week is Amazon's madam a live event. So i'm hoping. We'll hear about madam madam. A and amazon matter yeah. I don't. it's awkward. i just don't want to say her name so rude So i'm hopeful. We'll see.

"Stoked about anton because we're talking about my favorite thing which is threat detection and knowing a thing or two about our guest. I think it's going to have your favorite thing to which last time. I checked his logs lately. I've been not just in love with logs but also with threat detection response as well also. Today's episode deal. Some of the secrets. Secrets about how google does. It and google does really well as you know. I like to think that google does it pretty well for the legal team. When you're listening we actually made sure. There are no secrets. Despite what anton said so lawyers attention that listeners. Lots of secrets ahead exactly and to me. Some of the toughest things and threat detection is really how the threat knowledge becomes detections l. organizations have dealt with in my garden days and since that time basically know something about the threats and they sort of know they want to detect them eventually but this bridge they cannot cross they cannot get from. Here is the threat that may do this. And i wanted to be in my sam or my in my the product so today a lot of the stuff that is really cover actually covers crossing the rich. And you know it's funny that bridge that translation of i'm worried about outcome x two. I have rule y that encodes a capturing of it. That's the core of what i do doing. What my team's doing. It's a fascinating fun problem. I just love it so perhaps with that. Let me introduce our guest today. Julian hint a security engineering manager. Here in google's detection and response team delighted of you on the show today in anton. I think the first question for you so for the first question i wanted to focus on some things. That are very fun for me. Detect can modern threats kind of top tier threats interesting technical threats in modern environments. What is modern environments. It may be clouded. Maybe thinks the way. Google build them just kind of use your own interpretation. You wanna be cloudy as you want. Otherwise focused elsewhere as you want. Thank you for having me happy to be here. I think to dive right. In the the main thing i would highlight. They said there is a lot of similarity between detecting threats on traditional on prem environments in cloudy environments where we're going to focus on as far as differences is rudy on the control plane layer the identity next management layer that doesn't typically exist in an on premise environment. Where in cloud it is absolutely the core of everything that we do so those identities of service accounts they have keys these keys then to leak when they leak can get misused to perform that actions in the environment to use resources of the account to mind crypto currencies. And so on. And that's really where the bulk of a cloud detection team is going to focus synergy But wait wait wait so these sounds like regular threats though like i think we asked for modern threats in modern environments and you gave like regular threats in modern environments gave us only half of the answer. So what about something more interesting. You mentioned i am you know have. Im on your on premises data center. Give the break. It's his first question on this show. Mainly let's go with a quantum threat threats..
