My name is Yuli. I am a security and privacy architect.
For most of my career, I was a security guy.
My fields of expertise:
In course of my career, I worked for huge security vendors like Checkpoint, RSA Security, and a few small security vendors.
2 years ago I bumped into privacy. It was a story with a challenge.
I was working on a project for my customer. I had to enable access from one tenant account at Microsoft Azure Cloud to another tenant from a different company. In fact, I found a way to do it and it worked great until I decided to revoke the access.
Guess what? I got an error. Basically, I was not able to terminate a trust between 2 tenant accounts in the Microsoft Azure Cloud.
I contacted the Microsoft security team immediately to report the bug.
In response, I got a standard email saying that they do not consider this to be an important problem and advised me to open a regular bug report.
It can take years to fix regular bugs. My customer didn’t have time to wait, so, I challenged myself to find a better solution.
At that time, I became very interested in GDPR and privacy.
One of the topics I learned about was customer consent.
I thought to myself that giving permission from one tenant to the second tenant is basically giving consent to use my customer’s data to the 3rd party.
According to GDPR, it should be easy to give and easy to withdraw customer consent.
My next step was to contact Microsoft’s official Data Privacy Officer (DPO) and to report this problem. DPO forwarded my bug report back to the security team. It took them 2 months to fix this bug.
That experience gave me an understanding that privacy compliance is a challenging topic even for the biggest companies. It takes time to dive into legal issues and to transfer them to an actionable plan.
Being an entrepreneur by nature, I saw an opportunity in building a solution that helps companies to streamline GDPR compliance smoothly and in a much shorter period of time. This way an open-source Databunker and then Privacybunker projects were born.
From now on you can enjoy a seamless privacy compliance solution that takes just half an hour to set up.
Let me finish on a personal note for young entrepreneurs. My mission is to build a secure architecture for your products right from the first steps.
In a fast-paced digital environment, you can not wait a month to solve a simple problem since the competition is too tough. That is why I decided to spend 2-3 hours weekly to share my experience with other startup founders like me.
The success of Privacybunker allows me to spend more time with startup entrepreneurs. So, you are welcome to schedule a call with me on Tuesday. It is free of charge and it will save you valuable time and resources.
Looking forward to chatting with you personally.Schedule a meeting
