Joining a Startup within an Industry Leader

In November of 2013, I got an email from a Rapid7 Talent Scout saying she thought I'd be a great fit for a “unique opportunity” they had.  It had many of the same elements as other recruiting emails you receive and promptly ignore. I didn't ignore it, however, despite the fact that I actually loved my current job, boss, and co-workers. Maybe it's because her email was well-written and hinted at something big that was coming soon from Rapid7 (but forced me to take a call with her learn more).  M

Never Underestimate the Power of Relationships in IT & InfoSec

This is a guest post from our frequent contributor Kevin Beaver [/author/kevinbeaver]. You can read all of his previous guest posts here [/author/kevinbeaver]. 2016 marks the 15th year that I have been working for myself as an independent information security consultant. People who are interested in working for themselves often ask for my thoughts on what it takes to go out - and stay out - on your own.

How can we build great security teams?

Building a reliable security team is tough; there is no defined approach nor silver bullet.  The people we are defending against are intelligent, dedicated, and have a distinct asymmetrical advantage, with nearly unlimited time to find the one thing we miss.  This past decade has taught us that what we have been doing is not working very well. I've been lucky to have latitude for creativity when building the security team at Rapid7.  So when Joan Goodchild asked me to join her for CSO Online's
