There are two security companies featured in this edition of Channel People Making Waves that couldn’t be more opposite. One seemingly rises from the ashes, a new firm formed from ones facing difficulties. Another is a highly regarded operation now part of the Nasdaq 100. The people we highlight from those companies both discuss innovation and resiliency in a world full of cyberattacks.

The other part of the People Making Waves This Week list is a compilation of individuals changing roles within their respective companies or leaving altogether. These always make for popular stories. In this case, one person resigned, and another got promoted.

And lastly, one person we quote just tells things like they are. Don’t miss TCG’s Carl Katz’s take on refusing outside funding. It sounds cliché, but it’s true: Katz kind of sticks it to the man.
