The Cyber Business Challenge

Today we've moved from doing business in a physical world to doing business in a cyber world

Whether you are primarily in on-line commerce or simply exchanging artifacts with other companies, YOU ARE DOING BUSINESS IN CYBERLAND

In Cyberland: ANYONE CAN BE ANYONE; anyone can be anywhere; people can gather information about you and use it in ways you might not have considered

Online Reality

In many cases, even law enforcement officials are not safe from attack - Cyber Crime runs rampant and we all suffer from it

There is overwhelming evidence of crimes; But most of it is still unusable in court and most crimes aren't even investigated and go un-punished

Criminals walk the "Cyber Street" without fear of arrest or conviction

Hackers Benefit from Companies' lack of attention to cyber security and poor investment in protecting critical data - The statistics say it's working for them

What can be done to prepare for wider security challenges?

Educate Your Fellow Executives

Cyber Security is a business problem, not a technical problem - You have to solve it as one. Cyber Security should be addressed from the Top down AND from the bottom up. Get your C-Suite buy in from the beginning.

Understand your Cyber Footprint

You can't protect what you don't know - Forming a plan to fully understand what your new or potential company's digital footprint is will help you get control and make the right changes.

Don't forget about DATA! knowing what types of data, who has access and where the data moves is critical to understanding your new environment.

Trust the Experts

You may be able to follow a checklist, but not have the tools to verify if everything is done correctly. Knowing when you need help will save you in the end

How can you lead the way?

Stay Informed

Enroll in current tech news feeds from social media to the leading Cyber Security blogs (Like Protecting Tomorrow's) to stay up to date with what is changing. Being able to clearly communicate changes and threats to the C-Suite will help you get the commitment and funding you need.

Invest

Encourage funding for employee security training and assessing the current Security risk and maturity.

Build a Culture of Collaborative Security

From BYOD to IoT, the span of control in your next opportunity from a Tech perspective will be completely unique. Know what to look for and where to start to set yourself apart.

Trust But Varify

Know your Cyber Neighbor- your next company may have used partners for decades and are trusted with all sorts of trade secrets over handshake agreements. There is NOTHING wrong with verifying their cyber risk and maturity.

Hackers Are Getting More Sophisticated and Effective

I know this is the headline for the LP3-SecurIT marketing material... but we use that for a reason. IT IS TRUE

Ransomware is everywhere and the FBI's advice is to just pay it

It Won't Happen to Me

CEOs and executives have a false sense of security, banking on their IT folks and their Cyber Insurance

Future Talent, Tech and Innovation

There is still a disconnect between open positions and the RIGHT FIT for the job - With over 1.6 million people in our regional workforce, we should be able to hold on to the best and brightest to fill our key positions

San Diego continues to grow a collaborative culture for start ups and security minded innovation

Funding

Leaders in Cyber Security innovation are getting VC attention.

Folks like FHOOSH, AttackIQ and Proficio are pushing the envelope on tech and getting funded to do so.

Nationwide

We have a new president and a new set of cyber security challenges.

CYBERPOL launches in the US

Cyber 911 is building traction
