Every once in a while, I get to interview someone who is a household name in the Information Security community and industry. Sometimes ... it's because we love them, and sometimes ... it's because we like to pick on them. This episode features Brad Arkin, one of the people who I believe has one of the most difficult jobs in all of Enterprise Security.
Think about it - you're in charge of product security for several hundred products, and you're getting 0-days coming at you left and right ...you have Reader and Flash! to worry about which are the two most bug-hunted and exploited platforms out there - yet you're managing to make gains. How you ask?
Listen to Brad tell his side of the story, and give you the insights into how he's steering Adobe clear of the troubled waters that is 0-day. His is one of the most difficult, and interesting roles out there but the way he tells it ...it's all calm, collected, and moving forward.
I swear, somewhere in the background I can hear Queen and David Bowie singing "Under Pressure..."
