The firm's track record includes successful, high-profile portfolio company acquisitions by major corporations, including Palo Alto Networks, Microsoft, CA, and Proofpoint.
I chat with Roger Hales, who has become the CISO-in Residence at YL Ventures. The former Chief Information Security Officer of Informatica - a $1+ billion annual revenue software development company talks about privacy and data protection risks to a company?
We talk about the value of attending events such as RSAC and CyberTech Tel Aviv. We also discuss the latest big tech and privacy trends that are dominating conversations in conferences around the world.
Roger's legacy in technology and information security extends across multiple verticals, including financial services, healthcare, eCommerce, biotech, and education, so for these reasons alone, it's a pleasure to get him back on the podcast.
