Another wrote: “[I’ve] been in the systems engineering space for 10 years and I’ve continued to struggle with PKI and CA [Certificate Authorities]. This podcast has slowly filled those gaps in helping me understand soup to nuts what it’s all about, the risks, and what ‘right’ looks like.”

“As we continue to see increasingly sophisticated cyber threats disrupting businesses, new digital privacy laws, regulations on cryptocurrencies, and continued hype around transformational technologies like the metaverse, Web3, and quantum computing, it’s crucial organizations of all sizes take a hard look at their cybersecurity strategies,” Callan said.

Soroko added: “Weak digital identity credentials continue to be used as an attack surface, and at a time when there is a proliferation of human and machine identities accessing sensitive corporate data, adopting an identity-first security posture must be a top priority. We are proud our podcast continues to be a valued voice in an ever-evolving industry to help CISOs and their teams establish digital trust to securely conduct business today.”
