Episode 117 – Is Security Possible? And Getting Back to The Office

Topic 1: Is “Patch and Zero Trust” Even Possible?

What does doing something different look like? How much do we need to rethink all this? Or, perhaps, is it possible to provide appropriate security at the small end of the market but impossible at the enterprise level?

Topic 2: Status update on getting back to the Office

Topic 3: Amazon “burning through” employees

What does this tell us about Amazon? And since they are a massive employer, does this massive turnover affect the larger employment market?

Employee churn is so high that some Amazon execs are reportedly worried about running out of people.
