The 1983 movie War Games introduced the concept of “hacking” to the general public.
And in the ensuing four decades, we’ve seen massive online breaches of security involving both personal and business information.
Once considered a unique event, data breaches have become commonplace but many companies still don’t have adequate safeguards to protect their information.
Our guest today says that protecting businesses’ computer networks involves both technological and human defenses.
During this thirty-minute episode, Gary covers effective cybersecurity efforts, how businesses can protect themselves, and the different types of protection methods.
