The Labcorp Leadership in Technology Speaker Series welcomes Erkang Zheng, founder and CEO of JupiterOne. Zheng will discuss "From Security Practitioner to CEO: Building a $1B Security Company."

Not marketing. Not sales. Nobody knows the needs of practitioners more than the practitioners themselves. When the tools and technology on the market don’t meet all of their needs, that’s not a problem — that’s a business opportunity. Zheng found himself in a similar place as chief information security officer at a health tech company. He saw the need for a cyber asset management platform that could serve as the foundation for his company’s security practice, and seeing that there was nothing on the market to meet his needs, he decided to build it. Fast forward a few years, and he is now the CEO and founder of JupiterOne, a North Carolina-based cybersecurity startup. In this talk, Zheng will share his experience building a security company that is now valued at $1B, discuss some of the problems that organizations and individuals face in cybersecurity today and give insights on what entrepreneurs should keep in mind when transitioning from practitioners to business owners.
