Sonatype’s Joshua Corman on IoT: ‘More code, more problems’

Host Kevin Greene and guest Joshua Corman, chief technology officer at Sonatype, discuss the importance of secure and trusted software in car cybersafety. Corman talks about the possibilities of self-healing software for securing the Internet of Things. He also discusses the significance of an “underwriters lab” for software to help ensure software integrity and provide visibility in the software supply chain.

Previously, Corman worked as a security researcher and strategist at Akamai Technologies, the 451 Group and IBM Internet Security Systems. Corman co-founded Rugged Software and IamTheCavalry to encourage new security approaches in response to the world’s increasing dependence on digital infrastructure. Corman’s unique approach to security in the context of human factors, adversary motivations and social impact has helped position him as one of the most trusted names in security. He is also an adjunct faculty for Carnegie Mellon University’s Heinz College and IANS Research, and serves as a fellow at the Ponemon Institute.

Corman received his bachelor’s degree in philosophy, graduating summa cum laude, from the University of New Hampshire.
