I don’t know everything that is why I need a Mantra “Cybersecurity is MY Problem”

“Cybersecurity is MY Problem”

There are hundreds, if not thousands of security experts out there who will tell you that you have to listen to them.
So, Why would you listen to me?
I do not know everything!  Come to that, no one does!   No one ever will!  But, They will try to tell you that they know everything.
There is nothing on the planet that will protect you fully in the digital world.   And Nothing is available or will it be available in the foreseeable future.
We have to change.    We have to change before the bad guys take over the digital world.
What we do know is that we have a problem.
What we know is we have a problem keeping our digital information secure.
We have to – improvise, adapt and overcome.   Oh raa
What I know is that digital protection has to be holistic.
A holistic outlook will deliver better digital protection.
To fully achieve holistic digital protection you have to have a mantra.   An affirmation.   A focus for your protection.
We have a mantra.   Our mantra is “Cybersecurity is MY problem” say it with me “Cybersecurity is MY problem”
What does it mean?
It means that there is no silver bullet .   It means that it is hard work.   It means that it can be expensive and costly.
It means that everyone in the organisation is responsible for protecting your organisation.
Everyone does their bit.
Everyone is aware.
Everyone, not just the ICT department, or the managers, or the board members but everyone has to do their bit.
Digital security is intensive, focused and above all hard work.   There is no set and forget.   It is a constant battle between you, your staff, your organisation and the bad guys.   Attacks change, defences adapt – this is the way of digital protection.
Why am I telling you this?    We build and supply holistic digital security systems to small and medium business and not for profit Organisations.
What I do have is a passion, no that is wrong, I have a focus on protecting people from the criminals that inhabit the digital world.
So why would you listen to me?   I am just a normal ICT consultant with an extrordinary outlook on digital crime.   I do not understand the need to say – buy this because it is the best thing you can buy – especially when it is untrue.
If you want to create a more secure organisation in the digital world you need to talk to me.   Talk to me now
What I do do is create a holistic environment
