1219: Sounil Yu - Creator Of The Cyber Defense Matrix
After a seven-year tenure as Chief Security Scientist at Bank of America, Sounil Yu joined YL Ventures as CISO-in-Residence. The move will also help the firm help entrepreneurs better understand enterprise customer needs and navigate during this increasingly difficult COVID-19 environment and beyond.
Sounil is also the creator of the OWASP Cyber Defense Matrix and DIE Resiliency Framework. His vision is to put the Cyber Defense Matrix to the test to see how well it can help entrepreneurs discover capability gaps in the market and reveal common patterns that can be applied to develop solutions that can fill those gaps.
Sounil joins me on Tech Talks Daily to talk about the tools needed to meet infrastructure security challenges from a workforce that is suddenly 100% remote and how companies can apply the Cyber Defense Matrix to rationalize technologies when budgets are going down.
We also discuss why CISOs make such good advisors to VCs, putting them to work on behalf of startups to make better solutions (YLV convenes 80 CISOs from Fortune 500 companies on its advisory board).
