Al Yang is the CEO and co-founder of SafeBase. Al met his cofounder and CTO at Harvard during graduate school. As the pair were finishing school, they received acceptance into Y Combinator and founded SafeBase with a simple mission: to help companies build and manage customer trust at scale.

SafeBase is the customer trust communication platform that helps organizations showcase their security and compliance posture. B2B transactions increasingly require a third-party risk management assessment to finalize a contract or renewal. This usually comes in the form of long-form customized security questionnaires.

The extensive process significantly stresses cross-functional relationships, straining an organization’s most valuable asset: customer trust. SafeBase Trust Centers empower info-Sec teams with customer-facing trust centers to proactively share sensitive security, compliance, and privacy information. On the backend, These trust centers are powered by dozens of integrations with both sales and security tools designed to streamline processes and capture insight using data
