Below are show notes for an episode of the 7 Minute Security podcast, a weekly podcast I publish that focuses on topics such as penetration testing, network configuration, blue-teaming and career advice. I welcome you to subscribe in your favorite podcast app so you don't miss an episode!

Today's interview features Justin McCarthy, CTO and cofounder of StrongDM, which offers both commercial and open source tools (like Comply) to help customers with SOC compliance.

Justin schooled me (in a nice way) about a lot of things, including:

  • What SOC and the various SOC types are all about
  • What SOC compliance costs
  • What to look for in selecting a good auditor
  • Tools that can help companies make SOC compliance efforts go more smoothly
