[7:50] First steps to secure my product
How to clean a blender?
Talking about security is like cleaning a blender after a smoothie, you have 2 options:
1. clean up after the smoothie
2. Wait, even though it will be much harder.
[14:00] At what stage do people usually worry about this issue?
“It’s never too soon to think about security, but it’s never too late too”
[15:53] We’re becoming increasingly more digital dependent, with our files saved in our drives, pictures in the cloud, digital calendars, remote work, social media, and so on. How secure are we with what we save or send online?
Individuals and users are one way to think about it, and there are a few things we can do about the way we use the solution. but the onus is on the companies who build the solutions. We need to be understanding of attackers' work.

[20:00] More challenging hacking — The iPhone
[25:11] The cybersecurity of iPhone vs other brands
[28:40] Starting in the 1980s, with cases of cyber espionage during the cold war and to last year, in 2020, with a Massive Distributed Denial of Service attack against AWS, we’ve been vulnerable to cyber-attacks and aware of the need for protection. Over time what do you think has changed and kept the same?
“A lot of things have changed, the forwards have improved, the techniques have improved and we have to be able to defend better tomorrow than we did today or we lose the game.”
[35:45] “Security is never done!”
[38:25] Ethical hackers vs non-ethical hackers
