Are cyberattacks becoming more sophisticated, more frequent? Do people even care anymore? Do businesses care anymore? As these threats rise in frequency and the monetary damage continues to increase, why aren’t businesses taking the necessary steps to protect their systems, data, and customers? Anthony Johnson is the Managing Partner and CISO of DelveRisk and during a roundtable discussion with Rohit Parchuri, an industry veteran and security advisor, Johnson spoke at length about the threat cybersecurity poses today.

“Cyber can be fully catastrophic to a company. A big enough cyber event could delete the backups, could delete the ability of the company to operate, and just completely wipe the organization. There is not another threat that can be as macro systemic to any one organization.”

Those are strong words from Anthony, but the subject matter is just as stiff. On this episode of IT Visionaries, Anthony and Rohit discuss a host of topics, including how recent events have shifted the spotlight on network security, and they debate whether security breaches will make a difference in the long run. The two also touch on why security can often take a backseat to the goals of the company. To learn more, keep listening!

Main Takeaways

  • Are you Worried Now: The No.1 reason most companies end up with breeches is due to negligence when it comes to their security measures. A passive system is a network ripe for issues. Make sure you are consistently educating leadership on the risk of passive networks.
  • Can I Get An Adjustment? It’s more important than ever for security professionals to align their personal goals with that of their companies. When your value set is not aligned, you may create a security strategy that will not be backed by leadership or have company-wide buy-in.
  • Rising Threat Level: While risk models are important in order to understand where a network is vulnerable, it’s equally imperative to understand the types of threats your company might be vulnerable to and understand what the motivations of the attacker might be. Doing this will help quickly identify what is a need for your system against what is a want.
