Military strategy and training changes with every conflict and governmental paradigm shift. The only publication that has maintained relevance in the last 2500 years, is Sun Tzu’s The Art of War. I read this book only after I finished my military career, while I was studying for my degree in Counter-Terrorism, and only then could I relate back to my military service and understand why I was trained that way. Sun Tzu only talks about training once in the thirteen chapters but it is a chapter worth reading, “Victory goes to the army who has better trained officers and men [and women]”.

Data Minimization and Frictionless Security. Data minimization is a real key. You can’t lose, nor hurt clients’ privacy if you are not maintaining things someone wants to steal. This also makes it easier to protect what data you do have. If you have fewer categories of data, it is easier to sort out what you need to protect to the highest level versus elements that are not quite as sensitive, or about clients.
