Zoom vs. Google Meet - From an Ethical Hacker's Perspective, Which is More Secure? (It's Google)

Before jumping into this, for security reasons detailed below (and because nobody likes click-bait), I'm just going to tell you immediately to use Google Meet as of today. Read my blog below for all the details I could compile from the web today. It's complicated, but to summarize, Zoom has a sketchy past, and while they've certainly made several improvements, Google Meet was built initially to meet strict business needs and regulations through as an offering through GSuite.

Having been in the industry for over 20 years, I start to have an uneasy feeling when I see another slick powerpoint presentation that is done by a high paid consultant who has gotten his masters in powerpoint and/or spends hundreds of dollars on high paid infographics.

The Role of Ethical Hackers in DevSecOps - Development Alongside Offensive Security Measures

My goal here is to provide a high-level overview of the importance of ethical hackers within DevSecOps methodologies, as well as practically explain the methodology itself. You would think that, by today, most organizations and agencies have implemented DevSecOps (or at least a similar security-centric development model) in one way or another, but that is surprisingly not always the case.
