The Security Hippie, Part 2 – Barak Engel – SCW #99

Author of "Why CISOs Fail" is joining us today to tell us about the success of his first book as well as introduce us to his forthcoming book, "Security Hippie. Barak is best known for pioneering the concept of the virtual (or fractional) CISO model nearly two decades ago. Over the twenty years since then he has applied that model and strategy to building, managing and counseling security departments across countless and diverse organizations, including MuleSoft, Amplitude Analytics, Livenation/Ticketmaster, StubHub, Barnes and Noble, bebe Stores and many others. The goal of his new book is to convey security concepts in the form of telling stories, so we hope to hear a few examples from him during the course of the interview.
