This week on the Down the Security Rabbithole Podcast, Tony Perez stops by for an early morning chat about the content management systems we in InfoSec love to hate on. We talk about Drupal, Wordpress and all the other CMSes out there that have similar issues.

 

Highlights from this week's show include...

  • Why start a company that does CMS security (they're hopeless anyway right?)
  • How many of the most popular CMSes are actually not as bad as you may think, security wise
  • The core, the plug-in infrastructure, and plug-ins
  • Finding, responding to, and fixing bugs in the modern software world

  • Tony Perez ( @Perezbox ) - [Tony has perhaps one of the coolest LinkedIn write-ups, so I'm pasting it here.] Tony is a proven business leader and operator. He is a former US Marine (2000 - 2005), and former CEO of Sucuri (2011 - 2017), a website security platform that was acquired by GoDaddy in April 2017. He has proven experience taking a security product from startup to a global, multi-national, organization. 

    His core competency revolves around: leadership, management, marketing, product position, product pricing, sales, business institutionalization, revenue and organizational strategy. 

    He believes that our greatest responsibility in sales and marketing is to bridge the gap between the value a customer expects from your product, and the value you assume you are delivering. 

    He brings with him an intoxicating level of energy, work ethic and passion. Excelling in high-tempo environments, and executing flawlessly against strategies. He is adamant about self-reflection and self-actualization, placing energy on learning his weaknesses and building on them. 

    He is horrible at spelling, but amazing at motivating people. He is known for challenging people to be better, to strive for more, to never settle for the cards they've been dealt. He was a leader of Marines, and today he's a leader of people, technology and industry.
