Security Thoughts for Start-ups

Last night I spoke at the SFNewTech event "How To Avoid Online Security Headaches" along with a great group of speakers:
  • Joe Sullivan, Chief Security Officer of Facebook
  • Michael Coates, Director of Security Assurance at Mozilla
  • Mark Risher, CEO/Founder, of Impermium
  • Deron McElroy, Director of Regional  Partnerships, Cybersecurity and Communications (CS&C) at U.S. Department of Homeland Security (Invited)
  • Dan Goodin, IT Security Editor at Ars Technica (Moderating)
The format included a brief 10 minute introductory presentation from each person. My slides are available on slideshare and embedded below. This is clearly not the entirety of what you should consider about security. Instead. the intention was to provide a 10 minute crash course to raise awareness of key items that deserve consideration.
