Natalie Silvanovich from Google Project Zero talks with SE Radio host Kim Carter about how to identify risks and reduce the attack surface of the software you create.
Natalie found more than 100 zero-day security defects in Flash in her first year at Google. In this interview, she discusses the risks and countermeasures around code sharing, third-party code, and techniques for identifying code libraries that are more likely to have security defects.
Natalie Silvanovich is a security engineer on Google Project Zero. Previously, she worked in mobile security, on the Android Security Team at Google and as a team lead of the Security Research Group at BlackBerry, where her work included finding security issues in mobile software and improving the security of mobile platforms.
