Erik is joined by Vincenzo Iozzo (@_snagg), Village Global network leader and director at CrowdStrike, as well as Jamie Butler (@jamierbutler), CTO at Endgame.
James and Vincenzo talk about where opportunities are in the space and what their requests for startups are. Vincenzo says that he’d like to see cybersecurity risk securitized to create financial incentives for companies to insure their operations against cyberattacks.
The two of them create a market map of the space and talk about the thesis they would have if they were running a fund in the space. They talk about where to avoid building and some of the nuances of the security market, including that there are rarely novel ideas, only great execution.
They also talk about how cryptocurrencies and blockchain are spurring developments in the space and the the reversal that is happening with data becoming more important than the code that it runs on.
