SHOW NOTES – Episode 133 – Tuesday May 25th, 2021
[Evan] Welcome listeners! Thanks for tuning into this episode of the UNSECURITY Podcast. This is episode 133, and the date is May 25th, 2021. My buddy Brad is here, as usual. Good morning Brad!
[Evan] I’m excited to welcome our guest this week. He’s someone I greatly admire, and a true asset to our community, Gabriel Friedlander from Wizer. Welcome Gabe!
Getting to know Gabriel Friedlander
An open and honest dialog with Gabriel about his background, ObserveIT, Wizer, and whatever else comes up in our conversation.
About Gabe – From His LinkedIn Profile
I founded wizer-training.com in early 2019 with a mission to make basic security awareness training free for everyone. Since then Wizer has been rapidly growing with over 6000 organization who signed up for our free training. And in 2020 we partnered with several local counties to offer free Citizen Training. We believe that in this day an age, security awareness should be a basic human skill.
Prior to founding Wizer I was the co-founder of ObserveIT (acquired by ProofPoint) , a company specializing in the detection and prevention of insider threats. I am also the co-author of the book, “Insider Threat Program: Your 90-Day Plan”. For more than a decade I have researched insider threat and trained numerous organizations on how to avoid and mitigate the risk it poses.
Gabriel didn’t need another job (or necessarily the income) when he started Wizer. He started Wizer because he saw a need, wanted to help, and was looking for something fun to do. At first, everything Wizer did was free, and Gabriel didn’t have a plan for making money. Since then, things have taken off and he’s had a tremendous positive impact on our community.
Guessing we’ll use up the entire hour talking to Gabriel. Maybe we’ll cover some news next week.
