SAN FRANCISCO -- Working to support the U.S. military in a hostile theater like Iraq can be a life-changing experience, and, in the case of Ryan Lackey, can also help foster the innovation that would eventually lead to the creation of a new company.

"There's sort of a bootstrapping problem when you have no infrastructure," Lackey said of his efforts helping to build the U.S. military technology infrastructure in Iraq in 2004. "It was definitely interesting seeing the contrast between how big contractors worked and how more entrepreneurial organizations worked."

In this video, recorded at the 2013 RSA Conference, Lackey, the co-founder and CEO of cloud VPN service startup Cryptoseal, discusses his company and the technology, and reveals his closest scrape while working in a war zone.
