Encore Presentation

Machine learning is well on its way to becoming the backbone of cybersecurity, as attackers increasingly discover new and more damaging ways to infiltrate networks. As a result, companies that don’t include machine learning in their security posture will find themselves at greater risk. In this webinar, we'll sort the hype from the facts surrounding machine learning, explore ways security professionals can master this new tool and offer some key insights security professionals need to know.

Richard Chetwynd

Richard Chetwynd, 
Product & Developer Experience @ OneLogin; Founder of Litmos & This Data

Richard has started three companies of which two have been acquired by San Francisco Bay Area companies.  He has experience grinding it out as a bootstrapping entrepreneur and also raised multiple rounds of capital to help bring my ideas to fruition. Engineer at heart.

Richard started in 2015 to provide a breach detection and contextual authentication service. ThisData leverages machine learning to create behavioral profiles for users of an app and detect when suspicious logins occur. ThisData was acquired by OneLogin in 2017 to power their Adaptive Authentication offering.

In 2014, he started, a real-time backup service that would keep a restorable replica of data stored in multiple cloud based services. It quickly grew to several thousand users but we couldnt get the economics right so shut it down and pivoted the technology to serve as the foundations of ThisData. 

Also started in 2011 and was acquired by CallidusCloud Inc (NASDAQ: CALD).
