Sharks are in the water for our data! Are you worried?

Earlier this year, I attended a Security Summit here in Seattle. There was a statistic sited that placed Cyber Security and Privacy Policy into the top three concerns for CEOs in America. PWC, sited this statistic in a recent 2019 CEO Survey (2) Also, only 38% of CEO’s surveyed, felt comfortable with their respective Cyber Security posture.

I know when I formed my first Security Program Office in the early 2000’s, I never observed security and/or privacy on the list of my peers and top leaders of the organizations. However, today security has become top of mind. Many leaders are now worried about their respective jobs as well as their companies’ reputation.

Unforunately, at Ascension, we have leaders calling us, after such a breach or security incident has happen. It is difficult to watch CxO’s asking themselves, “What happened? Why did I get targeted?” Assessment is the first step to preventing this situation.

Feel free to comment: “Are you worried about CyberSecurity?

Please do not give company or personal specifics, unless you wish to call me.

Have a great day! Paul Scott
