Hello Everyone, and Welcome to the Follow the Brand Podcast.  My question to you is, “ DO you understand the true value of your data?” As a recent Cisco study made clear, cybersecurity will help fuel (and protect) an estimated $5.3trillion in private sector digital Value at Stake in the next ten years. This is the kind of numbers boards cannot afford to overlook. Cybersecurity Is More Important Than Ever. Cyberattacks can impact an organization’s reputation, customer trust, stock price, and bottom line due to the cost of recovery.

My guest Dr. Alexis Perdereaux states that every organization will get hit with a cyberattack, so you must understand the fundamental security policies to mitigate and understand the risk.
