As a part of our series about “5 Things You Need To Know To Tighten Up Your Company’s Approach to Data Privacy and Cybersecurity”, I had the pleasure of interviewing Kurtis Minder, CEO and co-founder of GroupSense.
At GroupSense, Kurtis leads a team of world-class analysts and technologists providing custom cybersecurity intelligence to some of the globe’s top brands. The company’s analysts conduct cyber research and reconnaissance and map the threats to client risk profiles. This enables us to deliver finished intelligence to clients that could be abbreviated as ITMaaS: “intelligence-that-matters as a service.” He is also a frequent contributor to the start-up community, and serves as an advisor and mentor to growing companies.
He arrived at GroupSense after more than 20 years in roles spanning operations, design and business development at companies like Mirage Networks (acquired by Trustwave), Caymas Systems (acquired by Citrix) and Fortinet (IPO). And, a fun claim to fame: he was even instrumental in building an early custom e-commerce system for the artist Prince that enabled him to circumvent his record company and sell music directly to fans online.
