Re: All Breaches Known?
In any case, their approach to fixing patches in third-party software sounds like a gerbil in a wheel approach, no? Won't they be constantly chasing holes to patch, running in circles? I don't mean to be negative here, and certainly that's not their only approach to security, but still, sounds like they're doing it just to say they've jumped through the hoops, or patches in this case.

Re: All Breaches Known?
@Broadway0474 good point. The Target breach did start with an HVAC contractor. Looks like a hacker stole credentials from a worker from the company, which was granted access to the Target database for maintenance purposes. I'm guessing David put it under that umbrella because it started with a third party vulnerability.

All Breaches Known?
Great interview. I find fault with only one of his statements --- the one about all recent breaches having been caused by known holes or insider action. Wasn't the Target mishap caused by the fault of their HVAC contractor? That's what I've heard, and if that's the case, I wouldn't chalk that up to either explanation.
