Former hacker Peiter “Mudge” Zatko is making the news today. As Director of the Cyber Independent Testing Laboratory he is working on a system to rate the relative security of commercially available software, something that is not presently available.
There is a great profile of him and his efforts today on Fortune. From the article…
Among the people most interested in the fine-grained results of the software ratings are insurance companies, which have been hard-pressed to estimate reasonable premiums for insurance against hackers.
Don’t miss an opportunity to hear Zatko speak on this issue in person next month… Register now for the 2016 PLUS Cyber Liability Symposium, September 27 in New York.
