Roshni Bham has been an account executive at Detectify for more than a year and she works to grow our business in the Americas. She was looking to join a mission-driven company that was passionate about its product and its customers, which she’s found in Detectify.
How did you get into the cybersecurity field?
I studied international relations and specialized in security and national defense policy. At the time I thought I would work creating policy but after college I needed a job and landed a sales role at an intelligence startup. From there I entered the world of security and sales, and the two together really resonated with me and eventually led me to Detectify.
What drew you to Detectify?
I was looking for a smaller start-up without the big company corporate culture, where you can make quick decisions. When I met the people behind the product, I realized this was a great fit for me.
How have you grown since you first started?
I had worked at another security company before Detectify and thought I was well prepared. Although the basics were the same, I soon realized the diversity of topics in the information security space. I have learned a lot about web application security, bug bounty programs, and responsible disclosure programs. Both on the technical side and the legal/regulatory side of how to operate safely.
I find it fascinating and I am constantly discovering new things and never quite feel like I know enough. The security space is constantly evolving and I love that I get to evolve with it.
Where do you see Detectify in the future?
Right now Detectify is still a new player but Detectify is quickly growing into the role as a recognized, reputable, and trusted source. The potential is unlimited, it wasn’t long ago that Detectify was a small startup and what we’ve accomplished so far has changed the ethical hacking space. In the future, with our people and history, I think Detectify will lead the community to bigger and better places.
What is your favorite part of your job?
For me, there’s no question that it’s the people. Working with a great product and selling it is motivating, but what gets me excited about work every day are the people I get to work alongside. Everyone is eager to learn, happy to teach, and always supportive. It’s such a welcoming group of passionate people. They make this company what it is.
