What is Cybersecurity? An anecdote about picking a lock

It’s important to have the right tools. It saves a lot of time and makes us more effective.

I learned how to pick a lock at the LayerOne Conference earlier this year.

Someone lost the keys to a basic lock.

I offered to pick the lock and started using two hair pins.

I spent 20 minutes trying to pick them lock.

My wife remembered she had bought a lock pick kit for fun.

I used the kit and unlocked the lock in 30 seconds.

Lesson learned: “use the right tools at the start.”

What is cybersecurity?

Pick tools and services that make your cybersecurity more efficient and effective.
