0-Day Vulnerabilities & What’s Next – Larry Maccherone – ASW #204
0-day vulnerabilities pose a high risk because cybercriminals race to exploit them and vulnerable systems are exposed until a patch is issued & installed. These types of software vulnerabilities can be found through continuous detection but even then may not always have a patch available. It’s important for software teams to set up tools that continually look for these types of flaws, as well as defenses that let software adapt itself to an evolving threat landscape. In this episode, we will discuss the ins and outs of 0-day vulnerabilities and what the future of managing them looks like.

Looking at Larry Maccherone’s career, you might think he can’t figure out what he wants to be when he grows up – Serial entrepreneur? Agile transformation coach? Open-source developer? Data scientist? Dev[Sec]Ops thought leader?
However, the underlying theme is that Larry has constantly been striving to create the highest performing (productivity, quality, security, etc.) software engineering teams.
At Comcast, Larry built and scaled the DevSecOps Transformation program over five years, and he’s now looking to apply what he learned doing that to help all Contrast customers and prospects.
Larry hails from Raleigh, NC, where his wife and four daughters make sure there is never a dull moment.
