Cloud Security Podcast was started in 2019 by Ashish and Shilpi so they could help make cloud security knowledge accessible to all, as well as to create a space for current and future cloud security advocates to learn from community experts and each other.
Ashish was working as CISO and had over 15 years of experience in cybersecurity, the last seven years being cloud security leadership roles, while Shilpi was managing business risk in highly regulated industries and had over 12 years of business leadership experience. While working their full-time jobs, they started and grew Cloud Security Podcast as a place that brings the best and brightest in the world of cloud security into the spotlight as they share their knowledge, expertise, experiences, and stories so that we can all learn together.
In July of 2022, something rather exciting happened — a special partnership was formed as Cloud Security Podcast began to be powered by Snyk. With this, Ashish and Shilpi were able to focus all their efforts into doing more of what they do best — bringing more cloud security knowledge, content, and education to the world.
Together, Cloud Security Podcast and Snyk are equipping cloud security advocates across the globe with the right tools and knowledge to fight all the cloud security villainsout there! And there is a lot more coming so you have to watch this space. Meet all the Cloud Security Villains here!
