In my role at EY, I have the great fortune of connecting with truly extraordinary individuals every day — visionaries who are not only helping reimagine what’s possible within their respective fields but are passionately innovating with purpose.

Over the past several months, my Innovation Re:Imagined LinkedIn newsletter has allowed me to cover an array of perspectives across the vast landscape of technology-fueled trends, inventions and thinking that’s reshaping the way we live, work and play — with more on the way. As a way to augment this effort, I’m introducing a new video series highlighting some of my recent chats with industry veterans, company founders, and inspiring minds across the technology landscape to accompany the newsletter. While I recommend you subscribe to my newsletter directly to experience the full breadth of content and insights from me and my team — I will also be sharing the videos here on Medium.

So, without further ado, let’s get this series started:

Sitting down with Ayal Yogev, Founder & CEO, Anjuna

In just the last two decades, groundbreaking new technologies like computers, mobile devices, the cloud, and others, have impacted all our lives — and they’ve profoundly influenced the mission critical world of cybersecurity.

I recently sat down with Ayal Yogev, founder & CEO of startup Anjuna, to discuss how “confidential computing” is fast becoming the go-to cybersecurity technology infrastructure for entities worldwide. This emerging technology is already supporting the cybersecurity efforts of enterprises ranging from financial services organizations to governmental defense agencies. Ayal believes that confidential computing’s capabilities aren’t simply groundbreaking — they will literally redefine the future of cybersecurity.
