Memorise how to type those two press releases, and you’ve got a job in infosec PR for life.

via TweetDeck

PR for infosec startups is easy, just two press releases. “Advanced excited accelerate scale.” Then “sophisticated attack value privacy.”

via TweetDeck

Still, three points for both “accelerate” and “scale” in the same sentence. That’s another of the compulsory floor exercises.

via TweetDeck

Where’s the bit in this story that says everyone is “excited:” to be part of the project? Companies can’t announce things without “excited”!
