Episode 5 summary

Although the internet began as a trusting environment, it soon grew to need security. Then emerged software security and it’s many forms. Now, organizations are undergoing digital transformations and adapting to cloud computing—resulting in a proliferation of attacks. 

Complicating security efforts, many executives in charge of security today didn’t live through the changes that got us to where we are, so they are learning and experimenting with security tactics. That fact, and new pushes from the U.S. government, have greatly increased executive awareness. CIOs and CTOs today need to carefully consider every security-related decision, particularly as technologies such as AI and quantum computing become continue to evolve.

Can we really build security into software where we need it? Do all the designers and developers understand the stakes of security? How do you educate a workforce around this? Creating the right simplifications can help everyone make the right progress. We discuss this, and much more, in episode 5.
