Updated: Dec 15, 2022

Software and app security have been black boxes for too long. The attacks on SolarWinds and Colonial Pipeline gave the US federal government more urgency to push for transparency across cybersecurity - from software bill of materials (SBOMs) and mandates.

We spoke with Jeff Williams, Co-Founder and CTO of Contrast Security, about what makes software and app security so difficult, why even the largest organizations still have insecure code, and your human right to security transparency. All this and more on The Cyber Jack Podcast.
