Risk Grustlers / Episode #1

Fancy some acronym soup, mate?

Featuring Davis Hake

Welcome to the first episode of Risk Grustlers podcast! In this episode, we walk through the journey of Davis Hake, who is the co-founder of Resilience – a pioneering cyber risk solution company based in New York City, which is redefining how companies think of the ‘economics’ of risk management.

Davis has earned his stripes as a true innovator in the realm of cyber risk combat, seamlessly merging cutting-edge analytics with actionable wisdom. With his unparalleled grasp on risk management, he is the perfect sensei for cyber risk warfare.

“Today, we tend to take a compliance driven risk approach. But what we really need is risk driven compliance. So, for companies to think about what’s core, what’s most impactful to their ability to deliver value to their clients and then working from that set of security measures, investments and understanding how well you’re implementing that sort of blocking and tackling can then layer up to these different compliance frameworks.”

“You know, it's all about that love for users. I even ran the customer success team for a bit. I remember going to Connecticut in the middle of a snowstorm in February. I sat down with the underwriting team to understand what slowed them down. The real gem of working in a startup is listening to your users and understanding their daily grind. It's inspiring. You come back with notebooks full of ideas. In just a few months, we'd transform their everyday lives for the better.”
