Software supply chain vulnerability and personal integrity
In this episode we talk to Paul Melson, VP Cybersecurity Solutions, Target, who transitioned from a hands-on engineer to a security leader. Learn why he’s now focused on lessons learned from the Log4j event and software supply chain vulnerability management. (Hint, Log4j touched a lot of things and won’t be a one-time thing.) He digs into how he learned it’s okay to admit you don’t know and you have to get comfortable owning your mistakes and leaning into failure to build and maintain integrity. And that cultivating professional relationships can lead to the unexpected: someone he met ten years ago led him to his current role.
