Brian Fanzo Translates the Geek Speak and Simplifies the Complex

Do you know what a Botnet is?

What about the difference between Cloud-Based and Cloud-Enabled Security

Is there a difference between Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence and a Difference Engine?

Could you explain the difference between a DoS and DDoS attack to your CFO? Could you make her care that there is a difference?

Should Americans care about GDPR? Do Americans know what GDPR is?

There’s a LOT going on just in the vocabulary words that we use in the cybersecurity world. We don’t just have to make the solutions that protect our users and prevent attacks from happening, we have to communicate what we are doing in a way that the users understand.

With a social media following over 130,000 and over 150 episodes of his 2 podcasts published, it is fair to say that Brian Fanzo knows about the value of communicating.
