S3E6: Walter Haydock - Software Supply Chain & Vulnerability Management

Nikki - You have some really awesome content on LinkedIn around Vulnerability management - one of my favorite posts you made recently was asking "Is vulnerability management dead". Can you explain a little bit about what you mean? I'm curious on your take, because there isn't a ton of modern guidance around vulnerability management 

 Nikki - One of the biggest challenges I think we face around vulnerability identification, and specifically prioritization, is that a lot of emphasis is put around CVSS scores and CVE ID's specifically. And while an incredibly helpful tool, plenty of vulnerabilities are not ID'ed or are not seen in traditional vulnerability scanners. What do you think the industry can do to better use other tools/techniques to identify and remediate vulnerabilities? 

 Nikki - Can you talk a little bit about where you think we could use more guidance or leadership around vulnerability management? I really don't hear about it when we talk cloud security or AI/ML, but it still incredibly relevant

Chris - We know another topic you're passionate about is software supply chain security. Can you share your thoughts on where the industry is headed with SBOM, VEX and other efforts to bring transparency and better governance to the SW supply chain?

Chris - You've also written and spoken a fair bit about broader Supply Chain Risk, partners, MSP's, CSP's etc. Do you think organizations are just now waking up to the exponential risk due to the interconnected and as-a-Service orientation we've taken as an industry?

Chris - As we mentioned, you do a ton of writing on LinkedIn, as well as your substack distro. How do you keep up the pace and what led you to start the substack originally? Where can people follow it and stay informed?
