Securing the perimeter was the task at hand for cyber security executives over the past few decades. As systems evolved, vulnerabilities were added. But the focus remained on the technology. As cloud migration began, the focus remained on the technology. But the modern cyber security executive recognizes that the technology stack is now the toolbelt not the perimeter. Data and the user are the new perimeters. 

George Rettas' guest, Kevin Coppins dives in on one of those pieces- the data. More and more cyber security executives are taking an offensive posture and rightly focused on what is being secured rather than simply playing defense.
