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 forboth as an individual and as a CISO?
