ABOUT THE GUESTS

This episode features Mark Kuhr, CTO and Co-Founder of Synack and Tim Campos, Chief Executive Officer of Woven

Mark Kuhr, CTO and Co-Founder of Synack, and Tim Campos, CEO of Woven, discuss how to build rock-solid security architecture with intuitive UX, and track how the surface area of security has expanded as more teams are working remotely. In this episode of CIO Confidential, Mark and Tim talk about how companies balance their security priorities with the pace of their business, and a whole lot more. 

Key Takeaways

  • Security and productivity shouldn’t be at odds with each other. Teams need to build security into their architecture intelligently so security standards are embedded in the way teams work, not added on as an afterthought. 
  • The best CTOs, CIOs, and CEOs craft their businesses processes with security in mind. If you’re building with blinders on, just focusing on eliminating all risk, you can end up putting up barriers to your business processes. 
  • It’s becoming more common for newly hired employees to join companies without having met their colleagues in person. CIOs, CTOs, and CEOs need to clear the space and design the processes that help employees connect and build a sense of camaraderie remotely.
