The software supply chain includes cloud infrastructure, on-prem proprietary solutions, APIs, programming languages, networking products, and open source software.

Each of these software categories has its own security vulnerabilities, and each category has tools that can help protect a company from attackers that are trying to exploit known vulnerabilities. As open source software has grown in popularity, it has turned into an enormous potential attack surface that is difficult to protect.

Snyk is a company that builds security tools for companies that are consuming open source. Guy Podjarny is the CEO of Snyk, and he joins the show to discuss the security vulnerabilities of open source projects, and how his business works. Guy was previously the CTO of Akamai, so he has significant experience in technical leadership. He also is the host of the podcast The Secure Developer, which I recommend for anyone who is interested in technical interviews about security topics.
