At some point, every startup understands that it needs to get security compliant, whether that’s with SOC 2, ISO 27001, GDPR, CCPA, or CMMC – the frameworks are countless. I’ll be discussing best practices as you go through this process, trends, and what compliance is going to look like in the future.

The advice I’m going to give will be especially useful if you’ve already built your platform, if  you’re selling it already, or if you’re at the seed stage or looking towards series A or series B funding.

Our main talking points include:

  • Does compliance = security?
  • Why do companies need compliance?
  • The main challenges in security?
  • Trends in compliance
  • The future of compliance
