Highlights

In today’s episode of Category Visionaries, we speak with Paul Lewis, CEO of Calamu, about his career solving problems in the cyber economy, and why the Calamu approach of securing private assets in the public domain of the cloud is the future of security for our data. The reality is that ransomware attacks and data breaches happen, so instead of promising more than they can deliver, Calamu focuses on taking the right action in the critical moments after data has been compromised to make sure their clients can quickly and effectively recover.

By developing a new ‘cyberstorage’ category in the security space, Calamu are differentiating themselves from the competition, breaking through the supercrowded industry’s background noise, and establishing themselves as a major market player, while retaining a community-oriented ethic to help solve the collective challenge of keeping our data safe.

Topics Discussed:

  • The roots of insecurity in cyberspace, and why easy communication left the door wide open for breaches
  • The modern cybersecurity landscape, and why constant evolution is driving a security arms race
  • Why cyberattacks are inevitable these days, and how companies can respond to the threat
  • How Paul Lewis’ dog was responsible for Calamu’s big business idea
  • Why the cloud is the new public domain, and what it means for the future of cybersecurity
  • How Calamu finds its niche in a crowded marketplace of security solutions
  • Why punitive measures are likely not the right cybersecurity solution, and how community-minded approaches can build real resilience
