Mountains of backups, Softbank takes an L, and the need for breach transparency – ESW #318
This week, we discuss fundings, acquisitions (TWO DSPM exits!), the ongoing market downturn/weirdness, and surprise - LLM-based AIs! We spend a fair amount of time talking about the importance of breach transparency - we need to be able to learn from others' failures to improve our own defenses. We also discuss the inevitable 'One App To Rule them All' that will serve as an all-knowing personal assistant. It will integrate with all our comms, calendars, and notes, which will be scary and fraught with privacy and security issues. But Tyler and Adrian still yearn for it, as their pre-frontal cortexes become increasingly dulled by scotch and beer.
