Upgrading to a new operating system like Big Sur can sometimes cause issues with existing software installations. It's possible that the Snowflake SnowSQL library was not compatible with the new version of macOS and may need to be updated or reinstalled.

Here are some steps you can try to resolve the issue:

Check Compatibility: Verify that the version of Snowflake SnowSQL you are using is compatible with macOS Big Sur. Check the Snowflake documentation or support site to see if there are any known compatibility issues or required updates.

Reinstall SnowSQL: Try reinstalling the Snowflake SnowSQL library to see if that resolves the issue. You can download the latest version of SnowSQL from the Snowflake website.

Check Dependencies: Verify that all required dependencies and libraries for SnowSQL are installed and up to date. Check the Snowflake documentation or support site for a list of dependencies and instructions on how to install them.

Check PATH: Ensure that the Snowflake SnowSQL executable is in your system's PATH environment variable. You can check the PATH variable by opening Terminal and typing "echo $PATH". If the SnowSQL executable is not in the PATH, you can add it by modifying your system's .bash_profile or .bashrc file.

Check Library Security: If the specific error message you are seeing is related to the "Security" library, it's possible that this library is not installed or is not being found by SnowSQL. You may need to reinstall the Security library or update your system's library paths to include the location of the Security library.

Contact Snowflake Support: If you are still having issues after trying the above steps, you may need to contact Snowflake support for assistance. Be sure to provide them with as much information as possible about the issue, including any error messages you are seeing and steps you have already taken to troubleshoot the issue.
