    Interview: Dug Song, Duo Security - 6:00-6:45PM

    Dug Songis the Co-founder & General Manager of Duo Security at CISCO

    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.

    Segment Description:

    • Part 1 - Introduction and Background
    1. How did you get your start in information security?
    2. Tell us about some of the software you worked on while still in school at the University of Michigan.
    3. What prompted you to begin work on dsniff?

    • Part 2 - Founder
    1. In 2000 you founded Arbor Networks, was that the point when you began to transition from engineer to entrepreneur?
    2. 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?
    3. What did you learn from the experiences at Arbor Networks? What prompted you to move on to a different company?
    4. Why did you decide to found a company in the authentication space?
    5. 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
    1. 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?
    2. 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?
    3. What advice do you have for talented tech people that want to become entrepreneurs?
    4. What is your recommendation for an inspiring book for entrepreneurs? (Note: We are HUGE Wu-Tang fans)
