Bootstrapping a SaaS to Help IT & Cyber Security Professionals Make Better Decisions with Edward Marchewka

Raul talks with Edward Marchewca, who runs CHICAGO Metrics® which started as a passion project because he believes, from the front lines to the board room, IT and Information Security leaders have to be able to tell their story to help decision-makers make decisions in order to gain support, funding, and resources they need to enable the business to move faster. It has morphed into a platform that helps IT and Information Security leaders prioritize their IT and Information Security risks and enables them to tell a better story.
