Today we're thrilled to welcome Ameesh Divatia from Baffle back to the program. We first met Ameesh back in episode 349 and today he's back to discuss a slew of additional hot security topics, including:

Misconfigured cloud databases

  • Why is this such a common issue, and how can we address it?
  • Wait wait wait...I just spun up a machine in Azure, AWS, Digital Ocean, etc. Isn't it secure because....it's the cloud?
  • What tools can we use to better secure our cloud databases?
  • How can we secure sensitive information as we migrate it from LAN side to the cloud?

CCPA (California Consumer Privacy Act)

  • What is the CCPA? How does it relate to GDPR?
  • If I'm a Californian, what can I demand to know from companies as far as how they're using my data? What can't I demand to know?
  • Will CCPA inspire folks to scrub their data from the hands of big companies and go more "off the grid?"
  • Does CCPA only apply to California residents and companies?

Secure data sharing

  • What are the current challenges with secure data sharing in terms of monitoring the flow of data within their systems and their partners’ systems, while addressing privacy concerns?

  • What are some of the common mistakes companies make when sharing sensitive data internally or with partners/clients?

  • What is Secure Multiparty Compute (SMPC) and how can it help with secure data sharing?
