Leaders’ Responses on the Increasing Cybersecurity Concerns

In today’s technologically-advanced era, cybersecurity issues emerge almost every day. With organizations relying heavily on the internet, the possibility of cyberattacks has exponentially multiplied. Unfortunately, cyberattacks occur when you least expect them, and when they do occur, they severely expose cybersecurity systems. However, the real question is, how can organizations tackle this increase in cybersecurity concerns? Let’s find out what some leaders have to say about this.

Roland Cloutier – Global Chief Security Officer of TikTok 

TikTok has emerged as a successful short-video and entertainment platform in the last couple of years. Roland Cloutier, CSO, elaborates that the increase in cybercrimes has been a driving force for different organizations to establish a strong security system. Therefore, he prepared a single formula, which is to prepare the organizations to be prepared before getting hit with an attack. Cloutier’s approach is a winning formula, given the severity of the cyberattacks that have surfaced in the present era. 

Christian Espinosa – Author and Managing Director of Cerberus Sentinel 

Several leaders will talk about improving cybersecurity systems or establishing stronger firewalls against increased cybercrimes. However, not many will discuss an organization’s culture as a key element in handling cybercrimes, aside from Christian Espinosa. Christian Espinosa has been a notable figure in the cybersecurity sector for some time now. He extensively discussed internet threats but with a different approach. With a career spanning over 25 years, Espinosa emphasized creating a culture of awareness and transparency within organizations to tackle cybersecurity. He believes that traditional teams working in silos have become obsolete. So, the leaders and the team members must work together to win the cyberwar. 

Dave Burg – EY America’s Cybersecurity Leader 

In today’s digital world, where we can’t function without the internet, the stakes couldn’t be higher. In May, the cybercriminals who shut down the US Colonial Pipeline leveraged a ransomware-as-a-service for their attack. It was a curated attack that posed risks to critical organizations throughout society. Dave Burg, EY America’s Cybersecurity Leaders, believes that more threats manifesting today, majorly because of the ransomware business model. So, it’s an area of concern that business owners must heavily consider. 

Summing Up

We are witnessing digital transformation right at this very moment. Every hour of every day unearths new technological innovation, with a new organization at the helm of it. However, with rapid development, hardened criminals also take advantage of it. So, if we want to win against the wrath of cybercrimes, we must adapt, learn, and conquer.
