Security Monitoring with Jeff Williams

The modern software supply chain contains many different points of distribution: JavaScript frameworks, npm modules, Docker containers, open source repositories, cloud providers, on-prem firmware, IoT, networking proxies, and so much more.

With so much attack surface, securing a large enterprise is an uphill battle. Jeff Williams is the CTO at Contrast Security, a company that makes infrastructure monitoring tools. Contrast Security works by intercepting network traffic at a low level and assessing whether that traffic maps to a common threat model.

Jeff joins the show to talk about different approaches to monitoring and securing large infrastructure deployments.
