Interview: Dug Song, Duo Security - 6:00-7:00PM
Dug Song is Co-founder and General Manager of Duo Security, one of the fastest-growing cybersecurity providers in the world. In 2018, Duo was acquired by Cisco for $2.35 billion, making it the largest exit ever for a Michigan-based software company.
Founded in 2010, Duo protects more than 20,000 organizations against data breach with its simple and easy two-factor authentication and Zero Trust security products.
Dug has a history of leading successful products and companies to solve pressing security problems, and is a leading voice in the cybersecurity industry. Prior to launching Duo, Dug spent seven years as founding Chief Security Architect at Arbor Networks, protecting 80 percent of the world’s Internet service providers.
Dug is heavily involved in mentorship and fostering entrepreneurship in Michigan. He is co-founder of the Ann Arbor’s Entrepreneurs Fund, which enables local entrepreneurs to turn business success into positive community impact. Dug is an executive board member of the University of Michigan’s Wallace House journalism fellowship program.
- Part 1 - Introduction and Background
- How did you get your start in information security?
- Tell us about some of the software you worked on while still in school at the University of Michigan.
- What prompted you to begin work on dsniff?
- Part 2 - Founder
- In 2000 you founded Arbor Networks, was that the point when you began to transition from engineer to entrepreneur?
- In the early PC days, some say Apple’s success was driven by the fact that they recruited business leaders (Jobs was known for his ability to talk to people, design things and his vision, not his technical prowess). The competition was largely being driven by hackers and computer nerds. What changed that allows hackers and engineers to move on to create successful tech companies?
- What did you learn from the experiences at Arbor Networks? What prompted you to move on to a different company?
- Why did you decide to found a company in the authentication space?
- When I think of Duo, I think of a company that has an outstanding culture, how do you continue to grow and maintain your vision and culture?
- Part 3 - The Journey
- Cisco’s acquisition of Duo is, in my opinion, one of the greatest acquisitions in security, how did it come about and what was it like to be integrated into such a large company?
- What makes companies great? Some say great sales and marketing, others say great tech, but clearly, if you get any of those things wrong you are likely doomed for failure?
- What advice do you have for talented tech people that want to become entrepreneurs?
- What is your recommendation for an inspiring book for entrepreneurs? (Note: We are HUGE Wu-Tang fans)

Tech Segment: Mike Godwin, R Street Institute - 7:00PM-8:00PM
Michael Wayne Godwin is an American attorney and author. He was the first staff counsel of the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), and he created the Internet adage Godwin's law and the notion of an Internet meme, as reported in the October 1994 issue of Wired. From July 2007 to October 2010, he was general counsel for the Wikimedia Foundation. In March 2011, he was elected to the Open Source Initiative board. Godwin has served as a contributing editor of Reason magazine since 1994. In April 2019, he was elected to the Internet Society board. He is currently general counsel and director of innovation policy at the R Street Institute.
- Tell us about the creation of the EFF: Why was it created and how did you become involved?
- What were some of the first cases taken on by the EFF? (In 1990 and into the 90s)
- Godwin's law? Please explain :) Still true today?
- Recently Sonos sent a notification to all customers stating that older equipment would not receive any new software updates, which likely includes security patches. What can we do to change this behavior to ensure the security of our devices (and our technology investments)?
- The right to repair provides us the liberty to reverse engineer devices, such as Sonos, especially when the software company refuses to support them? (Sonos also states older gear will not work with newer hardware and software from Sonos, perhaps Sonos files legal action if someone makes software to support older devices?)
- With large tech companies potentially controlling content (Amazon, Apple, Google), how do we ensure we will maintain free speech? And while speech may still be free, some have been banned from the aforementioned companies platforms because their views differ, how do we ensure a free and open Internet not governed by large corporations?
