A Venture Capitalist’s View of CybersecurityRoger Lang on the Need for Education
Roger Lang, who has experience in SaaS and fintech and has invested in various cybersecurity companies, says that education is the key to making real progress on cybersecurity issues.
“To me, on the subject of cybersecurity … it is no longer a problem of who’s got the best software application; it's who’s got the right forum to educate the broad spectrum of people who all need to learn this stuff," says Lang, general partner of the venture capital fund BCP Blitz. "Otherwise, I don’t see how we piece it together. And so with your initiative from CyberEd.io, cyber education, I think that’s the right emphasis.”
In this episode of “Cybersecurity Unplugged,” Lang discusses:
- The state of cybersecurity from a venture capitalist’s point of view;
- The commingling of security and economic issues;
- Why cyber education is key to national cybersecurity.
Lang is the general partner of the venture capital fund BCP Blitz. He is also the CEO and founder of Predicta, an advanced AI market analytics and data science company. Previously, Lang founded and owned the Sun Ranch Group and created and managed the growth of Infinity financial technology, which brought derivatives trading and risk management software to Wall Street.
