Much like the magnetic realignment of the Earth itself, there is an ongoing and equally global realignment in “who” is driving development of key cyber technologies. At one pole, government; the other, the private sector. Suzanne Vautrinot explores the shift as the private sector moves to “positive” leadership and as individuals, corporations, and governments increase the magnetic strength of their demand for information and cybersecurity solutions. The sky is not the limit—the need for your innovative ideas is universal.
