Archives For security awareness

In case you missed my recent interview with Marc Haskelson

Here’s a short clip on the difference between security and compliance (Specially HIPAA, but Marc’s answer applies to just about every compliance regulation I can think of – PCI, GLBA, SOX, etc). The gap is big and healthcare companies are paying for their lack of knowledge on this subject! When there’s confusion in the marketplace, there’s also opportunity.

TALC100% Signed Up To See If Their Data Is Safe!

Yesterday’s event in Las Vegas was a great success. We had representatives from the local cybercrime enforcement unit of the Las Vegas Police Department, as well as Fire Department, along with just over 20 business leaders.  Delon Lukow, President of ProStar offered an assessment to each attendee as a thanks for attending.  This initial assessment will help business leaders determine if there are in fact symptoms of data theft, or major holes in their security strategy. Every person there agreed to take this first step.

After the meeting I had the opportunity to meet with Lukow to review the most important elements of small business risk, and what risks small businesses are most likely to face. It is ProStar’s mission to help educate business leaders in this region, to take a more proactive stance against cybercrime.  My hope is that more SMB focused technology companies will sponsor these types of events.
