With Software, Hope is a Strategy? With Jonathan Knudsen (Part 1)

About This Episode

Joining us this week is Jonathan Knudsen, Head of Global Research for the CyRC, cybersecurity research center, at Synopsys Inc. To understand the vulnerability landscape in software, you have to first understand how software is made. Jonathan shares insights on software development and where vulnerabilities (or many, many vulnerabilities) can be integrated in the final product (although software is never really, final, is it?)

And as we round out March Madness for 2023, he shares some sobering findings from his recent research into sports betting apps and the more than 179 vulnerabilities on average uncovered. We also dive into software composition analysis, the future of security ratings, and the notion of security as an enabler to business. This is another episode that made sense to be a two-parter!
