Hey everyone, 

Did you miss our most recent LIVEcommunity event? Our AMA (Ask Me Anything) with Cyber Elite experts on July 28, 2021 was a wonderful opportunity for anyone in the LIVEcommunity to reach out and ask questions of the Cyber Elite members.


Cyber Elite experts are community members who are part of LIVEcommunity’s Cyber Elite Program. The program is a way to acknowledge those who have demonstrated excellence in participation and contributions in the community. Our Cyber Elite experts are generous in sharing their technical knowledge, insights, and assisting fellow community members in elevating their security posture.

Here are some highlights from the Cyber Elite AMA:


What’s the number one thing individuals aren’t doing but should to secure their virtual worlds? 

From my perspective, the answer would be, believing that their current rule sets are properly configured and providing adequate projection.


The typical IT professional is very busy through his/her day, and there never seems a moment in time to just re-prioritize and focus on your current security posture.

How can I troubleshoot my issue on LIVEcommunity before opening an issue with the Support team?

It depends on what issue you are having. Mostly if you need help in configuration there are knowledge base articles. For Troubleshooting issues you can go to Collaboration then to discussions there are so many tabs there, depending on which technology you need help with for example for firewall related issues you can search in General Topics. Put specific words for example like what error you are facing while doing commit on PA and do the search. Mostly you will find the answers there.


What aspect of working in cybersecurity do you find most interesting or exciting?

I personally love the erratic dynamic chaotic nature of it. It keeps my mind thinking of new ways to detect/prevent newer types of attacks with my existing technologies. This also helps me determine if I have a deficit that needs to be addressed.


There's never a boring day in this line of work, and I've never found myself wishing I had more to do. I don't think anyone working in this field can really ever say that their work is finished and just switch into maintaining the existing environment.



What Prisma Access related content will be most helpful to our LIVEcommunity members? 

A good place to start is the "Prisma access getting started" guide which can be found here... Then of course there is also the detailed documentation available which is split in the cloud managed prisma access and the panorama managed prisma access. If you prefer viewing videos rather than reading, there are also many of them available on youtube. For example: Introduction to Prisma Access, Securing remote networks with prisma accessPrisma Access Insights Deep Dive, and of course there is also the livecommunity technology resource page for prisma access, where you also find Prisma Access discussions are to ask questions to the community.




What do you think the next five years in cybersecurity holds? 

I think we are going to see a lot more ransomware/blackmail along with supply chain attacks. Unfortunately we are already seeing them and as lot of organizations either don't have the technical expertise or funding to prevent them.



We're hopefully going to see more and more environments move away from relying on perimeter security as we see more and more SaaS solutions being deployed and workers spending more time remote. If you aren't deploying solutions to ensure visibility into your endpoints regardless of location you're doing it wrong. I also think we'll sadly hear reports of a lot of organizations suffering from breeches over the next few years from improperly secured remote environments that got spun up due to the sudden change to remote work for a lot of organizations. Personnel were tasked with building solutions out quickly and often on a budget, and that generally leads to insecure solutions being implemented.


There are over 20 questions with answers from the Cyber Elite members, so go ahead and head on over to read all the great responses! 

We hope to see you at our next LIVEcommunity event.
