Technology Changes, but Security (Often) Stays the Same – Daniel Trauner – PSW #731
In a world with rapidly-changing technology, it can be tempting to constantly reach for the newest, shiniest security tools/techniques at both the program management and engineering levels. But even given unusual circumstances like startup hypergrowth or Web3 applications, sometimes we should focus on more basic issues. We can learn a lot about where to start with some of these basics when thinking about recent current events, especially related to widely-reported vulnerabilities or specific security incidents.

Daniel Trauner is the Senior Director of Security at Axonius, a cybersecurity asset management company, where he leads the implementation of security practices for a distributed and rapidly growing team. Previously, he was the Director of Platform Security at Bugcrowd, where he worked with (and was sometimes a part of) the thousands of security researchers worldwide who collectively attempt to understand, break, and fix anything that companies will let them. Growing up, he was always the kid who had more fun knocking down Lego towers than actually building them. Outside of security, Trauner enjoys reading, writing, collecting art, and trying to solve problems that others consider to be Kobayashi Maru scenarios.
