Adapt to the New, Unstable Normal: How to Secure the Roaring 2020s – Laura Koetzle – RSA21 #2
Security professionals must protect their organizations from the five shifts which will persist after the pandemic: 1) customers will demand safety and convenience; 2) brands will create hybrid experiences; 3) stakeholders will build the future of work; 4) smart firms will retire technical debt; and 5) resiliency will become a competitive asset. Each of those five shifts has profound implications for us, from the nuts-and-bolts of securing a much more remote and cross-border workforce, to the delicate dance required by the rampant growth of data protection and software supply chain nationalism among governments and regulators.
