Avi Shua

CEO | Orca Security

Avi has more than 25 years of experience in cybersecurity. Prior to co-founding Orca Security, Avi was the chief technologist at Check Point Software Technologies and held key positions within Unit 8200, the Israeli NSA. While at Check Point, he built and scaled cybersecurity solutions that continue to protect tens of thousands of organizations to this day. Avi believes that cybersecurity products should always support the organization and not the other way around.

As organizations of all sizes and industries continue transitioning their infrastructure to the cloud, security professionals need to address public cloud security for services like AWS, Azure, and GCP. Gaps in breadth and depth of coverage impose public cloud security risks from vulnerabilities, malware, misconfigurations, lateral movement, secret keys, weak and leaked passwords, and unsecured PII. These obstacles make their jobs difficult if not impossible. Thankfully, an outcropping of tools offers visibility and security into cloud behavior, but implementing those tools correctly to gain those results is only step one. Security professionals must also use this newfound knowledge while adhering to the reasons the company shifted to the public cloud in the first place: to move fast and grow.
