She’s worked in startups to public service, including being the CISO for the Canadian elections when Justin Trudeau was elected, to working in tech giants.Tanya has a really interesting perspective on many issues in cybersecurity, as you'll see in this chat. From why application security needs to be given more of a spotlight, to the issue of representation, working closely with devs, and seeking a fundamental change in the way we educate people in the industry.Before that, Ben leads our intro topic. He discusses the influence his father had on him and his security career, which prompts Hazel and Sana to look back at their own lives and talk about their greatest influencers.Plus, we discuss the new proposal from Talos and the Cyber Threat Alliance to truly tackle the global ransomware threat.
