A conversation with Marten Mickos

My guest today was Marten Mickos, CEO of HackerOne. His company has built a ‘hacker army’ of over 300,000 drawn from every corner of the globe. More than 600 new recruits join the community every day. Marten sees the security industry as a battle between devils and angels where the good side will eventually win because of the simple ratio of good behaviour to bad.

Marten and I spoke about the bridge between cyber security and personal growth, Nordic business values, nurturing an open communication environment… and big vs. small herring (I swear.)

Join me again next week for a conversation with Golbie Kamarei, Head of HR Strategy and Wellbeing Practices at Kamarei Advisory. (RSVP here)
