To say security and compliance are tricky is an understatement. Scalability, growth, and organizational maturity depend on a company’s ability to prove security. Startups clearly want to continue improving upon their security measures – and they’re starting to realize this early on.
As the survey below reveals, there is a considerable gap between goals and reality in startup security. Tech leaders understand the importance of security, but don’t fully have a handle on what it means to achieve it. Moreover, there are varying degrees in how organizations prioritize security.
So, what does this mean for fast growing startups? When it comes to security, there is a paradox. Security can enable businesses to scale and grow, but confusion around security and overly rigid practices can introduce unnecessary red tape. Our survey reveals that startups struggle to find the balance between managing risks and prioritizing security.
The good news is, this is a natural part of startup growth. In fact, hundreds of survey participants are going through similar security growing pains. Small business owners, founders, CEOs, CTOs, and anyone responsible for making decisions about organizational security share these challenges, goals, and priorities.
Most importantly, we want to share these findings so we can continue to make the internet a safer place to scale businesses. Let’s get started.
