Echoworx Talking Security at Cloud & Cyber Security Expo London
Rafael Narezzi is a seasoned cybersecurity professional – having worked in a variety of roles, from a cyber-educator to his current role as a cybersecurity advisor and CISO within the UK’s sustainable energy sector. Rafael sat down with us at Cloud Security Expo London 2019 to discuss why social engineering attacks are so popular amongst hackers and how they manage to bypass even the most-secure cybersecurity systems by seemingly simple tactics.
The best way to react to a data breach which is beyond your control is to prepare for it before it happens. By investing in a comprehensive encryption strategy, for example, you can ensure your data is protected even after it leaves your digital perimeter. If an organization can demonstrate every protective precaution is taken to protect data, then you can begin to assess the situation and begin taking subsequent actions.
In order to prepare for a worst-case scenario, organization board members need to be informed on the value of proactive cybersecurity measures. Like showing the value of bringing an umbrella when the forecast calls for a chance of rain, proactive cybersecurity measures, like encryption, can be a lifeline in the even of a catastrophic data breach.
