Addressing cyber risk within the business is a challenging task for any security team to manage on their own.

This places a premium on the Paranoids' relationship with engineering teams. An especially necessary one when conducting an expedited patch across the organization for an internet-wide weakness.

Namely,  Log4Shell.

  • The Working Relationship (1:00)
