In this week’s episode of the podcast (#223), we are joined by Josh Corman and Lisa Young of the COVID task force at CISA to talk about the agency’s work to improve the security of critical sectors of the U.S. economy.

(#216) we talk with Brian Trzupek, Digicert’s Vice President of Product, about the growing urgency of securing software supply chains, and how digital code signing can help prevent compromises like the recent hack of the firm SolarWinds.

Digital signing of code is one solution, but organizations need to modernize their code signing processes to prioritize security and integrity and align with DevOps best practices, writes Brian Trzupek the Senior Vice President of Products at DigiCert in this thought leadership article.
Joshua Corman, the Chief Strategist for Healthcare and COVID on CISA’s COVID Task Force, joins us to talk about the myriad of cyber threats facing healthcare and the vaccine distribution system and how the federal government is working to counter them.
