Abstract: Infosec has seen a lot of change...from the 90s, 2000s, and much has happened. Yet, some things remain the same (and why all of us have jobs). Now that we've crossed into 2020...what are our lessons learned and how can we apply them? Let's take a look forward to Security in 2030: the next decade.
