    Episode 61 - Omri Weinberg - Co-Founder & CRO of DoControl

    Welcome to Cyber Inspiration Podcast, you may be familiar with me as Co-host of the Security Architecture Podcast, which I started with Dmitry Raidman CTO of Cybeats in 2020.
    From the Episode:
    It's very easy to explain if you think about a company, doesn't matter the size of the company, 50 employees, 500 to 5,000. In order for them to run a business, they adopt and use a lot of SaaS applications.You need to make sure that you have a good team surrounding you. It's very hard to do it solo. I think it's very hard to do it with two people. I think three is a good format that you have, like, balances and checks, because you always have someone that can break the 50-50.I think for new people, people that want to start new companies, at the end of the day, you need to make sure that you have a good team surrounding you

    Episode 59 - Joshua Crumbaugh - CEO of PhishFirewall

    Welcome to Cyber Inspiration Podcast, you may be familiar with me as Co-host of the Security Architecture Podcast, which I started with Dmitry Raidman CTO of Cybeats in 2020.
    From the Episode:
    When you look at the social engineering attacks that target our people, they are targeting what are called these cognitive biases.When you get funding, just take your time. You're going to feel very rushed to hit those numbers, take your time and be strategic about your decisions and about your movement. It's all too easy to want to just jump and to move too quickly. When you do, you make mistakes that you might not make otherwise.I know a lot of people omit their executives from the security awareness training. I see it still to this day, and I think it's a terrible idea.
