Securing Your Customers
Software and technology is at an interesting crossroads in its relatively youthful life. How do we continue to innovate and push the boundaries of technology, while still keeping our customers, and society in general, out of harm's way?
I'd like to explore the idea that as technologists, we aren't really doing as good of a job as we can, and touch on some of the motivating factors there. What are we doing wrong, and how is it impacting people? Can a smart speaker really impact the safety of users in their own home? Is technology doomed to imperil people, or can we make things better? Who's responsible?
I believe we are still at a point where we can correct our course and lead down a better path to user safety with technology and software.
