Peiter “Mudge” Zatko… famed hacker, director of the Cyber Independent Testing Laboratory, and luncheon keynote at the 2017 PLUS Cyber Liability and Management & PL Symposia, stops by the PLUS Media Zone to discuss why it is important to create a standardized way to compare software, his advice for CTOs and ERMs, and the current cyber security landscape.
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.
