589: Why Cybersecurity Training Needs a Scalpel, Not a Chainsaw
On today’s tech podcast, I invited Zvi Guterman, CEO, CloudShare, onto the show to talk about why organizations are falling behind on cybersecurity training. We discuss why companies may be OVER-training with full cyber warfare scenarios……and unnecessarily losing time.

On today’s tech podcast, I invited Zvi Guterman, CEO, CloudShare, onto the show to talk about why organizations are falling behind on cybersecurity training. He has spent 20 years building extraordinary teams in organizations as large as the Israeli Defense Forces and as small as a startup taking its first steps. As a serial entrepreneur and business leader, his focus is on finding the optimal balance between technology, market needs, and costs.
Today, he is the founder and CEO of CloudShare and helps software organizations grow revenue and accelerate success by making it easy to replicate complex on-premises IT environments in the cloud, whether for training, proofs of concept & demos, or sandboxing for support and testing. Their customers include leading software and cybersecurity companies such as Palo Alto Networks, Atlassian, ForgeRock, Sophos, Dell, and HP.
Prior to CloudShare, he also founded and served as CTO of Safend, an endpoint security solution acquired by Wave Systems (WAVX) and was also a board member and mentor at Qlika, a big-data platform for AdWords optimization, which was acquired by The Priceline Group (PCLN).
Guterman explains why organizations can’t solve the global cybersecurity crisis overnight, so why do they spend time skilling up warriors to protect the national grid, instead of their own business systems? Unless the grid is your business of course. He also expands on:
- How cyber range training can quickly become overkill
- Why cyber talent development needs a scalpel, not a chainsaw
- How to train your staff as quickly as possible
