Ledger Hack Revisited with Pascal Gauthier & Matt Johnson

Location: Remotely
Date: Wednesday 14th April
Company: Ledger
Role: CEO & CISO

In July last year, Ledger was the victim of a data breach, with hackers gaining customer email addresses, phone numbers and physical addresses. Over 270,000 people were affected by the hack.

Pascal Gauthier, CEO of Ledger, previously came onto the podcast to answer questions shortly after the hack. Since the interview, Ledger asked to sponsor the podcast, and one condition was that they come back on the show and answer listener questions.

I believe it is vital to have a healthy and competitive marketplace for hardware wallets, firstly to give customers a choice and competition between the manufacturers pushes them to be better.

Listeners of the podcast still have questions regarding the hack, so I asked the Ledger CEO and CISO Pascal Gauthier and Matt Johnson to come on the show and answer some more questions and explain the changes they have made internally.
