  1. The world has changed with an explosion of data collection and sharing -  including IoT devices and infrastructure. The work/home divide is blurred. Consumer & enterprise security needs rethinking.
  2. Good, basic cyber hygiene is important. Cybersecurity doesn’t have to be expensive - patching your systems & keeping your software updated, using a password manager, and enabling multi-factor authentication will do 90% of the work necessary to protect your digital assets. 
  3. Company buy-in can be advanced by demonstrating how cybersecurity will help a business reach its goals more effectively.
  4. Cybersecurity is a team sport - a collective responsibility. It's a national security concern; small & medium sized businesses have an important role , b/c most crucial infrastructure is privately operated - collaboration is critical.
  5. Ecosystem level awareness is needed - the work of CISA and the NIST Security Framework are both valuable.  
  6. Automation - including AI and ML - is becoming an essential aspect of current cybersecurity protection and response. It enables a  proactive, and even predictive, posture through the whole ecosystem.
