In this episode of CISO Insiders, we welcome Jay Trinckes, Interim CISO at Laika, for an exciting and eye-level conversation about his journey into cybersecurity, advice for young cybersecurity professionals just starting out, and how the industry will evolve in 2022 and beyond.


Podcast highlights:

  • If there is one thing you wish you had known before starting your career

The hardest thing I overcame while beginning my career is to convince our executive leadership that cybersecurity is really important & is here to stay.

  • Cybersecurity budgeting pre & post-pandemic.

Cybersecurity is expensive and companies never have enough resources to allocate funds to it. But as breaching is making headlines, we are seeing more funding coming out and leadership is becoming a little more aware of the importance of it.

  • One common myth about cybersecurity

We’re not all hackers. Some of us might have done penetration testing, but people tend to assume that everyone in cybersecurity must be a hacker.
