I’m Graham, and I’ve been a long time lurker on the bootstrapped.fm discussion boards now, trying to answer some of my own questions before posting, or simply checking out other peoples thoughts and ideas whilst I come up with my own.
Push come to shove, and I thought I would finally sign-up and give back to the community (and to hopefully pick your brains along the way, whilst I build my own startup!). So, here I am, a UK based security specialist, working on a little side project in the security field. I’m looking to release it shortly, but as always, any comments or critiques would be welcome! You can see my idea here: breachcanary.com
Breach Canary is a service which will allow you to be alerted as soon as it thinks your business may have had some of its customer information leaked. It does this via a number of means, but in a nutshell, each business will get its own unique canary to store alongside all it’s personal information, and as soon as that canary is touched or spotted on the Internet, you’ll know about it!
I am working on a number of integrations, as I know it will be key to target businesses of all shapes and sizes. Currently, I feel like it would be wise to target the technology-centric businesses, as they are most likely to be aware of the risks and horror stories involved with data breaches.
Before this post gets a bit too long, I’ll keep quiet and let you quiz me if you’d like to know more. Or better, if you’d be interested in becoming a tester/pilot user!
