In this episode of the Business of Tech, host Dave Sobel discusses several key topics affecting the tech industry. He highlights the contrasting trends in job growth, with the tech industry seeing an increase in new positions in specialized tech firms, while tech occupations in non-tech sectors decline. Sobel also explores the potential for inflation to fall below the Federal Reserve’s target, which could lead to rate cuts and relief for consumers. He then delves into the challenges faced by middle-market companies, which have experienced declining earnings and rising debt. The episode also covers the release of a new cybersecurity strategy for the healthcare sector, the Federal Trade Commission’s reward for combating AI voice cloning, and the FBI’s expansion of cyber-assistant legal attachés. Sobel concludes by discussing the need for specialized cybersecurity solutions in healthcare, the demand for services that bridge the gap between cloud technology and business value realization, and the importance of targeting non-IT stakeholders in funding cloud projects.
