From professionals involved in software, to executives and lawyers, many individuals have widespread concerns over cybercrime and cybersecurity. Scott Vernick shared his thoughts on the topic, stating: “If I was running a company today, I can’t imagine a more pressing concern than data security.” He added: “Any major business, whether the IT sector is healthcare, utilities, technology, media, financial or retail . . . this is what would have me up at night, even before ‘what are my competitors doing?’ This would be at the top of the list. At the board meeting, after discussing quarterly financials, the next thing I’d want to know is the IT report. Tell me what the firewall analysis shows and how we’re prepared to defend against an attack such as a denial of service or malware.”
