The organization telling us their story today is Humio. Humio is headquartered in Denmark and is focused on providing real-time access to data via live system observability through fast, scalable and efficient log data management.
Our guests are Geeta Schmidt, CEO of Humio, and Pieter Heyn, Director of Sales & Alliances for the UK & Ireland at Humio. Each shares their individual stories for how they entered the InfoSec arena and also provide a brief view into their roles at Humio.
Geeta and Pieter also walk us through some of the trends they are seeing in the market, how they are building a solution to support those trends, and how their culture, solution development process, and customer interaction model — on a global level — are designed to establish trust and ensure that a simple, common mission is achieved.
This is accomplished by bringing their employees together through the art of Danish hygge and by bringing their customers into the mix through communications, support, and technology.
