Startups are all about proving the value of their product and growth. At the beginning, all of their money is funneled into product and market development. When do they need a CISO, if at all?

Check out this post for the basis for our conversation on this week’s episode which features me, David Spark (@dspark), producer of CISO Series, and guest co-host Jimmy Sanders (@jfireluv), head of cybersecurity for Netflix DVD and our guest is Bryan Zimmer (@bryanzimmer), head of security for Humu.

In this episode:

  • Should a company get a CISO right away, or wait until the security program matures?
  • If they get a CISO should they go for "on-prem" or on-demand?
  • Or.... should they just go and seek CISO-level advice from the security community?
