Laptops, tablets, refrigerators, coffee mugs, and lightbulbs.

Like it or not, almost everything we touch is - or asks to be - connected to the internet. The growing promise and prominence of these asks by everyday items: to be connected, to send alerts, to track your movements - brings up more questions regarding the extent of freedom versus responsibility in its usage.

We recently sat down with renowned cryptographer and Gutsy advisor Bruce Schneier for an open conversation about the future of effective regulation, the challenges posed by emerging technologies, and the debate surrounding balancing liberty and innovation in regulatory capture.

Schneier explores whether security governance and technology regulations can safeguard against potentially harmful unchecked technology advancements.

Navigating a New Security Reality

The general issue of regulatory capture has a significant impact on the jobs of many of today's security leaders. Despite mounting concerns and congressional inquiries in the U.S., and evolving regulations around the world, substantive action may continue to be slow to evolve. Additionally, as Schneier points out, regulatory agencies are often actually influenced by the very industries they oversee.

How Gutsy Can Help

We recently covered a series of changes to the security governance landscape, including the new reality for CISOs in the wake of critical legal rulings and SEC rule changes.

We know staying ahead of this new security governance landscape requires a proactive approach. For CISOs, CEOs, BODs, and security teams, the focus must be on compliance, transparency, and strategic risk management.
