The Human Element – ESW #252

In this interview, we discuss defenders sharing information, how Edna deals with Azure's supply chain challenges, ransomware trends, and some future predictions. Edna has been in security as long as most other folks we interview, but was a lawyer for 20 years before that!

Passwordless is everywhere these days, but like most new security markets, it's shrouded in confusion. There are already dozens of vendors promising to kill the password, but they don't all seem to be coming at the challenge the same way.

In the enterprise security news: ReliaQuest crests a $1bn valuation, CyCognito raises a $100m Series C, AWS enhances cloud vulnerability management, StrongDM automates access to infrastructure, Can we trust AI written code?, Killing the SOC - is the SOC dead?, Comparing secure messaging apps, The best cities for cybersecurity professionals, and Don't miss today's Squirrel Story - it's a personal anecdote!

2. First Look: Is Passwordless Really Killing the Password? – ESW #252

Passwordless is everywhere these days, but like most new security markets, it's shrouded in confusion. There are already dozens of vendors promising to kill the password, but they don't all seem to be coming at the challenge the same way.

In this "First Look" segment, our goal is to define Passwordless, discuss some of the companies doing it, and how they're doing it. We'll even go through a few live passwordless demos.
