Five Easy Steps to Secure Your Startup


Every startup today should be thinking about its approach to security. This is especially true for companies with access to sensitive information about individual consumers.

Sumit Agarwal, Co-Founder and VP of Product at Shape Security, addressed this issue at a recent KPCB 12-200 CEO Workshop. “If you’re like most of the people I talk to, security is a little bit like getting in better shape,” he said. “You know what you need to do – but that’s not going to happen, not this year.”

Agarwal told the audience that he would give them concise and actionable advice: the “five very best things I picked up at Google, in the Air Force, the NSA, and the rest of my career that will give you the best bang for your security buck.”
