How Notion, Lemonade, and BambooHR simplified their security and compliance (Sponsor)

Dreading audits, risk management, and manual evidence collection? For thousands of companies that use Drata, it’s much easier to achieve continuous SOC 2, ISO 27001, HIPAA, PCI DSS compliance and many more.

“Our team spent between 500-600 hours preparing for an SOC 2 audit. That’s a lot of time taken away from delivering product. I expect Drata will reduce this by 60-80%. It’s liberating.” - Jonathan Jaffe, CISO, Lemonade

Drata is security and compliance on autopilot: Automated evidence collection and 24/7 monitoring. 75+ built-in integrations. Complete risk management solution (no spreadsheets required). Custom frameworks to tailor Drata to your business needs.

Disentangling the Facts From the Hype of Quantum Computing (4 minute read)

The field of quantum computing has seen a lot of hype over the last few years. Companies have started to shift their timelines back, and the industry may be moving into a phase of the hype cycle called the 'trough of disillusionment'. Humans are still a long way from achieving quantum practicality, but progress towards that goal is accelerating. The industry needs to continue its evolution of qubit counts and quality improvements. It will likely be over a decade before anything of compelling value will be realized.

YouTube’s ‘dislike’ and ‘not interested’ buttons barely work, study finds (3 minute read)

Mozilla researchers have found that YouTube's 'not interested', 'dislike', 'stop recommending channel', and 'remove from watch history' buttons are largely ineffective at preventing similar content from being recommended. The 'stop recommending channel' button was found to be the most effective. A YouTube spokesperson has confirmed the behavior was intentional as the platform doesn't try to block all content related to a topic, opinion, or speaker. They criticized the study, saying that it didn't take into account how YouTube's systems work.
The Asymmetry of Open Source (26 minute read)
