Use ‘productive paranoia’ to build cybersecurity culture at your startup

As any startup flourishes, coming new products out the door and securing that next round of funding are always top priorities.

But security, all too often, descends by the wayside. After all, why would you invest coin in something that you hope never happens when you could be funneling cash back into the business?

Fostering a corporate culture that cuddles cybersecurity best traditions restrains purchaser data safe and your company’s reputation intact. But defence isn’t something you can easily tack on later. It must be ingrained in your company’s culture, and it’s so much easier to begin in the early days of your busines than scrambling in the aftermath of a data breach.

But how do you get there?

At TechCrunch Early Stage, we queried Casey Ellis, benefactor, chairman and chief technology officer at Bugcrowd, to share his ideas for how startups can improve their safety posture.

Bugcrowd cures companionships dip into a huge pool of cybersecurity geniu — including intruders and safety researchers — to find vulnerabilities. By assistance firms determine blunders, they can shore up their protections before malevolent intruders break in. Few know better than Ellis — who’s move Bugcrowd for close to a decade — which programs, procedures and protections corporations have put in place to get there.
