Tell us about yourself?
I worked for years as an auditor at EY, and I saw how challenging and time-consuming it was for the companies – especially the tech companies – to get SOC 2 compliant or ISO 27001 compliant. I wanted to make the process easier and faster so these startup founders and CTOs could focus on building their products and growing their companies instead of collecting screenshots for months to prepare for their audit.
If you could go back in time a year or two, what piece of advice would you give yourself?
If I could go back in time, I would advise myself to invest even more in understanding the diverse compliance challenges faced by different industries and geographies, as this insight is invaluable in developing a platform that truly meets the needs of a wide range of customers.

I wanted to make the process easier and faster so these startup founders and CTOs could focus on building their products and growing their companies instead of collecting screenshots for months on end to prepare for their audit.
