The C-Word For Business
Bridging the Gap Between Business Leaders and Cybersecurity
The world is still in its technological infancy. Technology has caused speed of light changes revolutionizing legacy businesses and creating entire industries never seen before. While the core tenants (accounting, marketing, & sales) of business have been around for centuries, the digital realm truly began in the 1970s. We have only scratched the surface of what the technical revolution will bring.
The technical revolution has brought many challenges to you as a business leader. Data Processing departments (as they were originally called) and even today Information Technology departments are seen as standalone units within many companies. You may struggle to keep up with the constant evolution of technology and how it needs to be protected. You may find it difficult to properly budget, measure value, and properly secure your organization because this information has not been effectively communicated to you. Technology wizards are very eager to jump into the weeds of the latest tech whiz-bang piece of hardware or utility without understanding how it can further the business's mission.
We are here to help you answer those business questions.
The C-Word for Business podcast is meant to bridge the information gap between the business executives and the technical team. To help you as an executive leader understand why cybersecurity is so important within your organization without having to know how to configure firewall ports, code authentication in a software app, or personally respond to a zero-day virus.
Our hosts, A-Jay Orr and John Barker will give breakdowns on the latest cyber events as it relates to your business decisions. They interview expert business leaders in and out of the cybersecurity industry to discuss the best measures of managing risk without being too relaxed or way over the top, and they will provide actional steps for you to integrate into your business to strive for a culture of security.
