This week, #DtSR takes a trip down Software Security lane or as some call it "How are we still writing code with bugs that we found relatively concrete fixes for in the late 90's?" (I may have been watching too many John Oliver episodes...)
Jeff Williams ( @Planetlevel ) and Tyler Shields ( @txs ) join me to talk this topic over from where we've been, to what we're doing now, to what the solution to this mess will be one day in the future. It's an interesting conversation that should stir up some emotion if you've been in AppSec or software security as there really are no docile opinions on this topic (or many others in security, unfortunately).
Plug in, listen and enjoy.

Grab a cup of coffee, jack in your earphones and listen up.
DtSR Episode 214 is addressing the issue of breaches, and their material financial impact to an organization.
The premise is simple - when you have a breach, are you going to see massive stock price drop, client exodus and so on? We sit down with legal expert and DtSR regular Shawn Tuma and researcher Jon Nichols to talk this through with James, Michael and yours truly.
Check this episode out. It may sting a bit, but once you come to grips with its reality - the world looks a little different.
