Encryption, Innovation, and the Cyber Gold Rush

Cybersecurity Podcast Episode 2

New America's Peter Singer and Passcode's Sara Sorcher chat with Alex Stamos, Yahoo's chief information security officer and world renowned cybersecurity expert, about his company's new end-to-end e-mail encryption rollout, what it’s like to lead a team of “Paranoids” and why people who have his job are so stressed out.

On the panel discussion, Heather West of Internet performance and security company CloudFlare explores why startups need good security solutions – and why hackers want to target some of the world's newest companies. The panel also expands on Sorcher's latest feature about the cyber gold rush, and the different states and regions vying to become the Silicon Valley of cybersecurity.
