Security teams are often known as police officers or the “team of no.” Instead, security teams help identify and manage risks--empowering the company to stay compliant and make secure products by saying “yes.”
Gusto Chief Security Officer Fredrick “Flee” Lee explains what you can do at an early-stage company to demonstrate meaningful business value starting on day one, including making security a sell-able feature of your product.
Learners will understand how to avoid extra security procedures that may slow your company down as it scales; how to empower every employee to take responsibility for security and mitigating risk; and when to onboard new security hires, vendors and technology.
Flee is the head of security at Gusto, where he leads information and physical security strategies including consumer protection, compliance, governance and risk. Before Gusto, Flee led global information security and privacy efforts at large financial services companies and technology startups for more than 15 years, most recently as Square’s head of information security. He previously held senior security and privacy roles at Bank of America, Betfair, NetSuite and Twilio.
