Disrupting the Lie of Cyber Security with Walt Szablowski | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #ransomware

Hackers are using unbelievably simple tools. They know that you haven’t updated your software, and they know you have no control over your devices

Cyber security professionals are all too familiar with the notion that “Defenders have to be right every time. Attackers only need to be right once.” The idea that hackers have all the advantages and that businesses must be passive and wait for something to respond to is practically an axiom of cybersecurity. But it is a lie. (1)

Enter disruptor Walt Szablowski, Founder and Executive Chairman of Eracent, who explains to Karla Jo Helms, the host of the Disruption/Interruption podcast why the topic of cyber security is often perceived as complex and how gaining a better understanding of it can help empower individuals and businesses to navigate the digital landscape more effectively.

Szablowski points out that “Hackers are using unbelievably simple tools. They know that you haven’t updated your software, and they know you have no control over your devices.” He and Karla Jo discuss the strategies that will help listeners understand the truth about managing their data lives online.
