My Story – Inspiring Journey of an Entrepreneur Featuring Sai Venkataraman - Creating a leading personalized security awareness platform!

While the rapid adoption of cloud native technologies is fueling innovation, organizations are grappling with the challenges of securing more complex cloud stacks and cyber threats. Seeing an emerging opportunity that in the cybersecurity world, security products and practices usually ignore the most fundamental element of an organization – the user. 70% of security incidents are caused by users. Realizing this as a great opportunity, Sai Venkataraman cofounded SecurityAdvisor in 2018 to provide the only real-time and personalized security awareness platform that delivers a measurable reduction in security incidents. The company was acquired by KnowBe4, Inc. (NASDAQ: KNBE), the provider of the world's largest security awareness training and simulated phishing platform in October 2021.

The company's patented platform integrates easily with existing security infrastructure to deliver personalized coaching for each employee, teaching them how to identify and remediate cyberattacks and help security teams better understand the human element of their organization's security posture. The innovative SecurityAdvisor technology further utilizes integrations with over 50 leading vendors in the cybersecurity ecosystem to identify and correlate human behavior-driven security alerts generated across each layer of the existing security stack. These alerts are mapped to relevant micro-learning opportunities that are pushed out to users via enterprise instant messaging apps, such as Slack and Microsoft Teams, immediately educating the user.
