It’s that time of year… the top lists of 2018. Here at
Fractional CISO we are not immune to the phenomenon. So, we’ll shamelessly

We are usually a commentary site. But sometimes we get a scoop.
Coming in at number six is one of those occasions. In July, while “news” sites

around! This is a topic that should be top of mind for most organizations.

#1 Most buzzworthy… 18
months in: What I’ve learned starting a cybersecurity company
This has been the best reception we’ve received for any blog
post. I have had so many people talk to me about it. I appreciate all of the likes,
comments and shares as well. I guess folks are interested in seeing what is
going on behind the scenes of starting a company. Here’s the lead in.
After twentyish years working for someone else, I quit my corporate
job and started a cybersecurity consulting company. While it seemed risky at
