RH Strategic recently connected with Washington Business Journal Senior Reporter Rob Terry at the 2018 DCA BIG Cyber Growth Summit in Crystal City, Virginia, to talk about his bird’s eye view of cybersecurity in the DC area and what he looks for in evaluating cyber startups.

“There’s a lot of, frankly, chatter and hype in the space,” says Terry. “It’s not a coincidence that a lot of cyber startups that do a big venture round channel a lot of that money into marketing…I’m just trying to peel back the curtain a little bit to get at kind of what makes them different or unique.”

Listen for more on that and also in our podcast, Terry sheds light on the two key things he sees driving momentum around cybersecurity in the DC area and why DC entrepreneurs need to get more comfortable with failure.
