I feel incredibly fortunate having stumbled into the industry back in 1983. Needless to say, there have been numerous significant milestones and technological advancements in the last nearly four decades.

In this episode my guest can claim the company he co-founded invented one of the most significant cyber security advancements and introduced IPS; heretofore only IDS was available. Marc Willebeek-LeMair was on the front lines of reshaping cyber security with in-line IDS. Now, with his new company SPYDERBAT, where he is founder and CEO, he’s at it again.

In this episode, we are introduced to "AccessOps" by the creator of the term and co-founder of stealth-startup Stack Identity. Venkat Raghavan discusses his current passion; addressing the challenges of access and access control in the cloud-native world. Today, virtually everything has an 'identity and these identities are given access to data. Not all of these are human. In fact, many are non-human including micro-services, functions, applications, and other assets. Regardless of their form, all 'identities' need to be managed. AccessOps is the new category Stack Identity has created to address this exploding cloud-native challenge.

If you've ever heard of Aston Martin and know, even a little, about cars you know, Aston Martin is not a typical automobile. The same could be said about their CISO; Robin is anything but typical. In our thirty-third episode, we travel across the pond (again) to the UK to talk with Robin Smith, Head of Cyber and Information Security. Hear why Robin quotes Einstein ("We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.") and believes the problems and challenges we face in the cloud will take a new way of thinking...what he calls liquid thinking.
