Yuen Pin Yeap , CEO at NeuShield
wWhat would you describe as your most memorable achievement ?
Prior to founding NeuShield , I developed the first kernel technology that allows security software to attach and control any running processes in any Windows operating system . This hooking technology became the foundation of the behavior blocking component in endpoint security products . Although I have developed many software programs in my life , this one is especially memorable due to its impact on the security world . To this day , this core driver technology is still heavily utilized and can be found on tens of millions of devices . It was the first time that something I had created became ubiquitous and has an impact on protecting users from day-zero malware .
What first made you think of a career in technology ?
Back in the 80s , I got my first computer when I was in high school . It was an Apple II clone named Cubic 99 that was made by the then little-known company , Creative Technology . My affinity for programming began after I taught myself how to write programs to solve various math problems for school . That ’ s when I realized it would be pretty awesome to have a job that allows me to write computer software .
What style of management philosophy do you employ with your current position ?
Throughout my professional career , I have met many great talented people . I find the best person in their line of work and delegate them full responsibility and ownership to do their job . The idea is to develop equity sharing with my employees so that they feel that they are part of the team and part of the company . Working alongside my employees and playing to people ’ s strengths allow for the entire team to succeed .
I WOULD NOT CHANGE ANYTHING ABOUT MY CAREER PATH BECAUSE OF ALL THE KNOWLEDGE THAT I HAVE GAINED OVERALL .
What do you think is the current hot technology talking point ?
For the duration of COVID , technology that enables remote workers to do their job efficiently and securely will be the biggest talking point . Some companies may even permanently allow most employees to work from home . As a result , the security aspect of working from home will need to be addressed by the industry .
