It’s never good news when potential security exploits are detected. But when they affect all personal computers, mobile devices and cloud infrastructure dating back to 1995, it creates a problem of a whole new magnitude. In this episode, we’ll be talking with Paul Kocher, the researcher credited with co-discovering Spectre and a co-author of the Meltdown research paper.
Some of the topics that we cover include:
- How did these vulnerabilities happen, and why were they not detected sooner?
- Did the rush to bring technology to market play a role in allowing these exploits to slip through the cracks?
- What are the main concerns to look out for—both as an individual and as a CISO?
