We have been getting a lot of great feedback on the recent Fireside Chat series we have been posting. This week I am traveling on the west coast and had a stop over in San Francisco for GitHub Universe. I had some time on Monday so I stopped in at the Sysdig office to meet some of the extended team and dig deep into their culture and powerful technology. As we know timing is everything...

With rules in place, it will ensure that users will periodically update their password and also ensure that their password meets a specific criteria.

Why does the ability to share insight, as a result of that data, across various teams have such a high cost? I have been asking myself these questions for much of my career in technology. I think back to when my team was responsible for large scale web, and electronic payment systems. We always struggled with monitoring, and more specifically understanding the performance and trending information about our systems.
