Abstract

Compliance gets a bad wrap for just being full of checkmarks but at Nylas we’ve learned a ton by becoming SOC2 certified.

Come join this talk to hear the engineers prospective of what this process was like, how it improved our company, and if it’s right for you.

We’ll also discuss the most effective ways to manage the process across every company department.

Speaker: Tomasz Finc
