Pearls of Wisdom in the Security Signals Report

Show Notes

It’s our 30th episode! And in keeping with the traditional anniversary gift guide, the 30th anniversary means a gift of pearls. So from us to you, dear listener, we’ve got an episode with some pearls of wisdom!  

On today’s episode, hosts Nic Fillingham and Natalia Godyla bring back returning champion, Nazmus Sakib, to take us through the new Security Signals Report. Sakib walks us through why the report was done and then helps us understand the findings and what they mean for security.  

In This Episode You Will Learn: 

  • How pervasive firmware is in our everyday lives 
  • Why many people were vulnerable to firmware attacks 
  • How companies are spending the money they allocate towards digital protection 

Some Questions We Ask: 

  • What was the hypothesis going into the Security Signals Report? 
  • How do we protect ourselves from vulnerabilities that don’t exist yet? 
  • Were any of the findings from the report unexpected?
