Are We Investing in InfoSec to Solve Problems or Make Money? | With Jay Leek and Patrick Heim
In today’s episode, I am joined by two InfoSec veterans who have held a variety of leadership roles and are now leading and managing a fund at ClearSky Ventures — Jay Leek and Patrick Heim.I am thrilled to get a slice of their time to ask some hard questions and to get a view of their world as they try to figure our which investments to make, why, and why not. Paraphrasing Jay in this conversation: “It’s hard to get informed with investments … it’s not obvious!”Jay and Patrick shine the light on a ton of stuff in this episode. Listen in to get their individual and combined views on investment strategies, investment buzzwords, and the categorization of the 4 types of security companies and how the categories impact investment decisions. Jay and Patrick even share some advice for the organizations making attempts to consume some of these innovative products. Similar to Jay’s point of view for investments — it’s not always obvious to the consumer, either.

Brakeing Down Security Podcast
Brakeing Down Security had the pleasure of having Patrick Heim join us to discuss a number of topics. We discussed a number of topics: Cloud migrations What stops many traditional #companies from moving into #cloud based operations? What hurdles do they face, and what are some pitfalls that can hamper a successful #migration? We touched briefly on #BYOD and the use of personal devices in a business environment, as well as #Dropbox's deployment of optional #2FA and using #U2F keys for additional #authentication measures. Finally, as an established leader in several major #companies, we pick Mr. #Heim's brain about qualities of a leader. Can you self-diagnose if you'll be a good manager? And what does Mr. Heim look for when hiring qualified candidates. It was a pleasure having Mr. Patrick Heim on and Brakeing Down #Security thanks him for his valuable time. Some #articles we drew upon for questions to ask Mr. Heim: http://blogs.wsj.com/cio/2015/05/01/dropbox-is-not-part-of-security-problem-says-new-security-chief/ http://www.itpro.co.uk/cloud-storage/24894/dropbox-users-may-get-free-storage-if-they-adopt-stronger-security http://www.computerworld.com/article/2489977/security0/boost-your-security-training-with-gamification-really.html http://www.computerworlduk.com/news/cloud-computing/dropbox-working-on-fido-keys-ensure-top-notch-security-3618267/ http://www.darkreading.com/operations/building-a-winning-security-team-from-the-top-down/a/d-id/1322734 Stitcher Network: http://www.stitcher.com/s?fid=80546&refid=stpr TuneIn Radio App: http://tunein.com/radio/Brakeing-Down-Security-Podcast-p801582/ BrakeSec Podcast Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/brakesec Bryan's Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/bryanbrake Brian's Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/boettcherpwned Join our Patreon!: https://www.patreon.com/bds_podcast Tumblr: http://brakeingdownsecurity.tumblr.com/ RSS FEED: http://www.brakeingsecurity.com/rss Comments, Questions, Feedback: email@example.com **NEW** Google Play Store: https://play.google.com/music/podcasts/portal/#p:id=playpodcast/series&a=100584969 **NEW** Listen to us on Player.FM!! : https://player.fm/series/brakeing-down-security-podcast #iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/2016-005-dropbox-chief-trust/id799131292?i=361604379&mt=2 Direct Download: http://traffic.libsyn.com/brakeingsecurity/2016-005-Dropbox_Chief_of_Security_and_Trust_Patrick_Heim.mp3 Partick Heim image courtesy of darkreading.com
