Announcing Security for Founders: Node.js Edition - a one-day intensive class
As a startup, where might your organization get the biggest bang for your buck when it comes to security?
Consider this controversial thought:
Your founders—CEOs, CTOs—are very likely your organization’s greatest security risk.
There are few things that better predict an organization’s likelihood of a massive security breach than founders' knowledge, priorities, and willingness to put in the effort to grasp the fundamentals of security.
In a way, most software vulnerabilities can be traced up the chain of authority. Founders make decisions every step of the way that will shape your future security posture. The security of your future depends on the choices you make today.
It seems like every week there is another news headline of a breach bigger than the week before. In response, vendors send a deluge of email urging you to spend money to bolt on yet another solution that adds more attack surface than it eliminates.
But that’s just putting a bandaid on the actual problem (and a pretty ineffective one). We firmly believe security is an ongoing process and starts with the founders. As a founder, you either help or hinder an effective security program; one that can adapt to the ever-changing security landscape.
It’s time to get back to the basics of good security hygiene and start from the ground up.
So we’re offering a class to level up founders’ ability to make informed decisions, participate in conversations about security in an informed way, ask critical questions, set organizational priorities, and make wise tradeoffs with an understanding of the risks involved.
Here are more specifics on what the class will cover. Seats will be limited for a high-quality learning experience.
