Episode Summary

Ransomware, IP theft, sophisticated state-supported actors: Cybersecurity threats are everywhere, and it’s ultimately our collective responsibility to protect our IT organizations’ data integrity. Jim and Liron talk with cybersecurity expert Rob Lockard about the human dimension of that responsibility because more often than not an APT gains access via social engineering than brute-force actions. Rob’s global travels also yields some wisdom on dealing with people from the incredible variety of cultures he’s encountered.
