Stuxnet, Sexism, CEOs and Surveillance

Cybersecurity Podcast Episode 3

New America's Peter Singer and Passcode's Sara Sorcher chat with Bruce Schneier, prolific author and chief technology officer at Resilient Systems, about the challenges of publicly blaming countries for cyberattacks – and whose job it should be to defend private companies against sophisticated nation-state attacks.  They also hear from Nate Fick, the CEO of Endgame, a venture-backed security intelligence software company, about how he's leveraging cybersecurity solutions once produced just for the government into the private sector.  

Wired's Kim Zetter, author of Countdown to Zero Day: Stuxnet and the Launch of the World's First Digital Weapon, joins the panel discussion to talk about how the cyber operation on Iran's nuclear facilities launched a new era of warfare; the vulnerability of US critical infrastructure to Stuxnet-like weapons; and the gender diversity issues bedeviling the cybersecurity industry.
