Cyber Security is one of the biggest threats to nations, organizations, and individuals and ensuring we are well-protected is key to our future. In this episode I speak with ling-time recognized Cyber Security expert, Ray Boisvert. Ray will talk to us about the fast-pace changes in technology that are driving the needs to increase out data security practices and how criminal elements are keeping pace with these changes. We'll also talk about why we need to move away from a Compliance-focused security program to put greater focus on basic risk management practices. Ray will also give some pointers on how we can enable our organizations to become more resilient to deal with the ever-increasing threat of Ransomware and other cyber crimes. We'll even touch on Artificial/Augmented Intelligence (AI). Don't miss this very important episode if you're concerned about Cyber Security.
Preparing for the Unexpected
Thursday at 6 AM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Variety Channel
Preparing for the Unexpected is about how people, organizations and communities plan, prepare, test, communicate and respond to sudden unplanned events such as natural and manmade disasters and crises. The show is for everyone who wants an understanding of how plans are created for individuals, organizations and communities and for anyone who wants to know what they can do in their own lives to help protect themselves from unexpected events.
There is a myth that disasters happen to others but in reality, they happen to everyone. It's just a matter of when and how well-prepared you are. The greater the level of awareness, communication and knowledge, the quicker one bounces back from adversity.
The overall aim of Preparing for the Unexpected is to reduce the suffering, effects and impacts caused as a result of disasters and unexpected life events by increasing knowledge and awareness of Business Contingency and Disaster Planning and related activities.
