Startup Security Report 2022: A transforming security landscape

June 14, 2022

Going from ideation to production is a huge milestone in creating a sustainable startup. Going from production to profitable is another huge hurdle that comes with a variety of unforeseen challenges. Proving an organization’s security posture is one requirement that can put startup sales at a complete standstill.

As the leader in security and compliance, we work closely with a lot of startups to help streamline continuous security practices. In doing so, we understand that not all startups plan the same way, have the same resources, or prioritize responsibilities in the same order. In order to learn more about how startups actually secure and scale their organization, we created the State of Startup Security Survey.

In early 2022, we asked startups to honestly and anonymously answer questions about their security posture, their security roadmap, and how satisfied they are with their security in general.

Over 500 people took part in our survey and we break down the results in our first annual State of Startup Security Report. In this report, we share the full data breakdowns of each question - everything from demographics to security tooling. Respondents share how they prioritize security and how they’re proving it. Startup participants also discuss which compliance standards they’re working towards and how they’re getting certifications.

We’re excited to share our data with you. Check out the report to learn more.
