We’ve completed almost 100 podcast panels and sometimes it feels like we’re talking in circles. Over the years, the security and privacy landscape have gotten more complex, making baseline knowledge amongst industry pros ever so more important. Old concepts are often refreshed into current foundational security concepts.

Technological advancements as well as decline also bring forth new challenges. When there’s a decline, we need to reserve the right to change our strategy. For years, users were blamed and labeled as the enemy, but our infrastructure wasn’t built with security in mind. So, perhaps the weakest link in cybersecurity isn’t human, but the infrastructure.

When there are advancements, security and privacy need to be baked in from the very beginning. Concerns are already arising with DNA and fitness testing kits as well as what constant surveillance is doing to our brains.
