Silencing the Noise in Cybersecurity

It’s noisy out there. Hundreds of TV shows that your friends insist you “HAVE to watch,” a concerning number of crime-related podcasts (seriously, why are there so many?), and seemingly non-stop communication with one another – text, email, social media, carrier pigeon.… There are only so many hours in the day, and a lot of things fighting for your time and attention. It can be difficult to cut through the noise and see clearly what should be prioritized, both in your personal life and at work. The cybersecurity space is noisy, too.

Sure, there were plenty of impressive claims, incessant and exceedingly flattering competitive comparisons, and a pitch devoid of small-print caveats, but through it all, he remained resolutely matter of fact. Why did that impress me?
