Manifesto for Modern Cybersecurity

We believe modern cybersecurity, especially for digital companies with cloud-native operations, requires a different mindset and operating model such that:

  • Assume compromise, but expose no single point of compromise.
  • Track everything since you cannot protect what you can’t see.
  • Engage everyone for there is power in the crowd; two is stronger than one.
  • Automation is key because people don't scale and changes are constant.
  • Build products that are secure by design and secure by default.
  • Favor transparency over obscurity, practicality over process, and usability over complexity.

We must keep security simple, open, collaborative, enabling and rewarding.
