Episode 56: Permissions Management


Whether it’s at work or at home, everything we do online is based on permissions. If you have the proper credentials, you can obtain access.

When permissions management breaks down or a threat actor manages to gain unauthorized access, the situation can deteriorate very quickly.

In this episode of Privacy Files, we talk to Jake Moshenko. Jake is an authorization pioneer who is the Co-Founder and CEO of AuthZed, the company commercializing SpiceDB, the industry-leading cloud-native permissions database.

After working in engineering roles at Amazon and Google, Jake turned to entrepreneurship and founded a company that was eventually acquired by IBM.

At AuthZed, Jake is helping companies replace their home-grown authorization software with a scalable, flexible solution. In other words, AuthZed lets companies (and developers) focus on their core competencies.

In addition to permissions management, we also talk about how Jake’s career has made him more privacy-conscious in his personal life. Jake also offers some advice for protecting your personally identifiable information (PII).
