We have officially wrapped our inaugural user and compliance summit, Drataverse!

If you couldn’t make it out to San Francisco with us, don’t worry—here’s a recap to get you up to speed!
Welcome Keynote With CEO, Adam Markowitz
Drata CEO and Co-Founder, Adam Markowitz, kicked things off with a keynote centered on the importance of trust as a core value and business accelerator. He discussed how Drata came to be the fastest-growing and most well-funded platform in security and compliance automation, and our plans to continue delivering on our mission of building trust across the cloud.
The Next Generation of Drata With Brian Elmi
Our VP of Product, Brian Elmi, showcased Drata’s incredible growth as a platform since our inception. In the two short years we’ve been on the market, we’ve released 350+ features, 100+ integrations, and 1000+ enhancements based directly on customer feedback.
Brian also gave us a look ahead at what’s next for Drata, including upcoming launches and feature releases.
Enlightening Breakout Sessions
Drataverse’s breakout sessions included a range of topics and formats—from Open API workshops to Ask an Auditor panels—there was something for everyone. We even hosted a live taping of our Compliance Uncomplicated podcast with experts from Dropbox, Descope, Rhymetec, and Class Technologies.
Other sessions include:
Head of GRC at Notion, Patti Degnan, sat down with our VP of Customer Success, Ashley Hyman, for a fireside chat.
Drata Co-Founder and CTO, Daniel Marashlian, spoke with Silicon Valley CISO Investments (SVCI) on the role a strong security posture plays to expedite sales and differentiate businesses in the marketplace.

And many more!
Closing Remarks From Coleen Coolidge
Investor, CISO, and security advisor, Coleen Coolidge, shed light on ways to develop resourceful and collaborative security engineers within an organization and the importance of accessibility and transparency within the GRC industry.
Fireside Chat With Jerry Rice
We closed out the day with NFL Hall of Famer, Jerry Rice. He sat down with Adam and shared how trust, perseverance, and a dislike for complacency attributed to his success. He spoke about his teammates showing him the value in loyalty and collaboration, and his commitment to “setting the standard” every time he stepped on the field. And of course, he threw some footballs to a few attendees!
Our goal for Drataverse was to provide a place for security and compliance professionals to learn from one another, share insights, and highlight the importance of trust and transparency in the market today—mission accomplished. Be sure to catch the recorded sessions and follow-up announcements later to come this week.
