  • What the hack of ride-hailing service Uber by a teenager in another high-profile multifactor authentication bypass attack means for the worldwide security industry, which heavily relies on MFA;
  • How the conversation around single-vendor SASE versus multivendor SASE is evolving and whether Gartner's projection of 50% adoption of a single-vendor approach to applications, gateways and zero trust will come true;
  • The recent security incidents and revelations at Uber and Twitter centering on former CISOs and the nagging questions they raise about ethics, security culture and the future of cybersecurity leadership.
