The Lightbulb Moment for SecurityScorecard

The Lightbulb Moment for SecurityScorecard

“Alex, I don’t think you are doing a good job,” said the chairman as I presented my progress.

I was shocked.

At that time, I was working as the Chief Security Officer at Gilt Groupe.

He continued, “...because people aren’t complaining. If you were making enough changes, I’d hear more people complaining about you.”

It was this ironic moment that gave birth to SecurityScorecard as I realized that companies have no KPIs to know how they’re doing on the cybersecurity front.

In the middle of 2013, we bootstrapped the company and started working on it in our evenings and weekends.

In 2014, we raised investor money and started doing it full-time.

By 2015, we had our dream product ready and started going into the market.

Today, we help 1000s of customers from financial institutions to healthcare organizations to vaccine manufacturers make more informed cybersecurity decisions.

It's been an exciting journey, and it’s only getting better.
