Presented by

About this talk

In recent years the cybersecurity industry enjoyed high valuations, rapid growth, and the creation of many ‘unicorns.’ However, the industry has also had its fair share of overhyped expense/debt-laden companies. Cybersecurity investors have pumped the brakes with a global economic slowdown and generational inflation. Path-to-profitability has quickly become a paramount metric, once de-prioritized for growth, often despite massive losses. This Ed TALKS will feature diverse perspectives from a cybersecurity investment banker, entrepreneur/executive, and venture capitalist. Attend to hear how today’s technology and investment trends are changing the way we operate in cybersecurity and get expert advice on: • Challenges of running a VC/PE-backed cybersecurity company • Valuation calibration and investment appetite • Metrics to watch closely, stress, or de-emphasize • ‘Red herrings’ cyber leaders need to avoid chasing
