Announcing The New Normal

If you’re like most of us, you’re spending half your day washing your hands, and the other half trying to find a really great Zoom background to impress your coworkers. The days of the office (break rooms filled with snacks and free lunch on Friday!) sounds pretty good right now. Especially if you’re like me and keep finding the same terrible snacks every time I rummage through the cupboards.

What if that day never comes? How will it change if it DOES come? What do I do with the hundreds or thousands of people that I shoved out the door, and what issues I created shoving them out the door?

These are the questions we have been asking, and why we launched The New Normal. The New Normal is a friendly chat with industry-leading experts on what the transition looked like when being forced to work remotely practically overnight. What problems did they have? What solutions have they come up with to solve them? What problems do we have now, a month later? What do we think The New Normal is going to be in 6 months? How about a year from now?

We have been talking with our friends over at Lark Security about what challenges we both have been navigating with our customers, and what we think the new normal might look like. Most importantly, how does the "new normal" look for cybersecurity? So we decided to host a forum together where we can all share our experiences and collectively benefit from the lessons we are all learning.

The format is pretty simple, every other Thursday at 10 am MST, we will host a virtual meeting with a panel and a moderator. Guests are encouraged to ask any questions they have in the chat function of the meeting, and the moderator will get to them when appropriate. Some episodes will have sponsors that are relevant to the topic or cause.

Our first episode will be Thursday. April 30th, 2020. We are excited and honored to announce Kyle Shannon CEO of StoryVine will be joining us. More panel members are TBD at this point. If you would like to be a panel member or guest, submissions are welcome here. We are also looking for sponsors, so please reach out if you would like to be considered.
