The stories we’re covering today.

Marcel Brown: November 14, 1971. NASA's Mariner 9 reaches the planet Mars and becomes the first man-made object to orbit another planet.

Edwin Kwan: Signal has started testing the use of account usernames to allow users to keep their phone numbers private. Users would be able to turn off phone number discovery in their privacy settings and only allow the username to be the primary way others can contact them.

Hillary Coover: Could deception technology be the ultimate strategy for staying ahead of cyber threats? A CSO opinion piece is quickly circulating and predicts that a convergence of IT and cybersecurity trends will make deception technology more accessible by the end of 2025.

Ian Garrett: The cybersecurity domain is experiencing a significant paradigm shift. Traditional perimeter defenses like firewalls are making way for a more identity-centric approach. As we move forward, identity will no longer be a siloed discipline, but an integrated, interconnected aspect of cybersecurity infrastructure.
