Episode 1: The FoundersBringing It Back to The BeginningWhat’s to Come

High-growth startups are no strangers to the twists and turns that lay ahead when building a top-notch product and organization. But there are certain things you can count on to pop up during your growth trajectory—compliance being one of them.

Growing businesses hear the phrase “Do you have a SOC 2?” from prospective customers quite frequently—and the fact is that SOC 2, or any other compliance framework, won’t be going away any time soon. So why not get ahead of compliance requirements and use it as a pillar for accelerating your company's business goals?

Not only can SOC 2 be a big competitive advantage for startups, but having proof of your active compliance measures can help accelerate sales cycles, close bigger deals, and increase revenue as you scale your business. Not to mention, demonstrating your commitment to protecting your customers’ data plays a huge role in actively building trust with your customers.

Each episode of Compliance Uncomplicated aims to explore how startup founders and visionaries are using compliance pathways to accelerate their growth, build trust with customers, and create a security-first company culture. Featuring a wide variety of guests from different backgrounds and industries, the podcast will also spotlight a revolving case of Drata co-hosts.

Compliance is much more than just a box to check or a tedious security questionnaire to complete. However, the complex industry jargon and acronyms can get in the way of understanding the benefits that compliance can bring to your organization. We’re aiming to peel back those layers as we uncomplicate compliance and uncover the many advantages it has to offer.

Compliance Uncomplicated is being released on Spotify, Apple Podcast, Google Podcasts, YouTube, and Amazon Music.

Episode 1: The Founders

When developing the concept for Compliance Uncomplicated, Drata’s very own history came to mind. We launched out of stealth with a clean SOC 2 report in hand, as our co-founders saw the importance of demonstrating our security practices from the get-go.

With that in mind, there’s no one better to kick off our podcast launch than the folks who started it all. For our first episode, Drata’s community lead, Helina Medhin, sits down with three very special guests, Drata’s Co-Founders:

  • Adam Markowitz, CEO

  • Daniel Marashlian, CTO

  • Troy Markowitz, COO

Bringing It Back to The Beginning

Prior to founding Drata, Adam, Daniel, and Troy founded another company that later became acquired, called Portfolium. During Episode 1, we get into the nitty gritty of how the acquisition of Portfolium led to the creation of Drata, the key role security and compliance plays in actively building trust with Drata customers, and why our co-founders prioritized establishing a security-first culture throughout the entire organization from the start.

We’re also bringing some fun to Compliance Uncomplicated! If you want to get the scoop on Troy and Adam’s American Ninja Warrior days, Daniel’s love for atomic push-ups, and the infamous ping pong table that brought Adam and Daniel together, then you don’t want to miss this episode!

What’s to Come

While we’re thrilled to have our co-founders on Episode 1, stay tuned for all the other exciting episodes and guests we have in store! Covering a variety of different industries and topics, one thing is for sure: each episode provides different perspectives on how we can uncomplicate compliance, together.
