Digital security and privacy are not just tools or a checklist to follow but an incredibly important set of skills for both our own development & management processes and the protection and confidence of our users and their information. No one wants to see their company in the news for the latest & greatest data breach!

Solutions that often create unforeseen consequences. Suddenly the security culture of your organisation is significantly more relevant to your attack surface.

2021 hasn't been off to a simpler start! With mad dash efforts by governments around the world to pass internet regulation and legislation ultimately ending up surveilling the general public under the guise of preventing ~~cyber crime~~ and forcing enforcement onto private businesses.
