Security technologies and solutions change constantly. Today's new hotness will be tomorrow's old news and distinguishing features will be defaults in the next version. The insane pace of the digital arms race makes it difficult to keep up with the latest trends and skills. In this talk I'll explore this phenomenon & look at examples over the last 30 years to demonstrate a consistent pattern in the technology lifecycle.
