Secure private and public clouds will wipe out traditional data centers over the next 3-4 years. Los Angeles, Calif. – Oct. 16, 2018 The degree of difficulty in protecting businesses from cyber attacks grows in proportion to a number of factors. Emerging threat actors, the prominence of interconnected devices and the most critical in my opinion – the VAST amount of data that needs to be secured – are all adding to this complex challenge.  By 2013, the world was already accumulating data at an astonishing rate of 2.5 quintillion bytes of data every day. At the time, 90% of the…

Celebrating 15 Years of Cybersecurity Operations Excellence

I’m not big on sitting back and smelling the roses. In fact, I typically emphasize constant forward momentum. I like to reference the Mario Andretti quote: “If everything seems in control, you’re not going fast enough!” But the combination of these milestones couldn’t be ignored. My family and I…

Accountability to the boardroom tops the list of late night worries Los Angeles, Calif. – June 18, 2018 Getting a good night’s sleep has become increasingly difficult for CISOs.

I had the privilege of presenting at two incredible events this quarter – the FS-ISAC Summit and the Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit – and the CISOs in attendance agreed.

Robert Herjavec is the founder and CEO of Herjavec Group, which provides cybersecurity services to protect global enterprises from online attacks and threats. He’s also an investor on ABC’s “Shark Tank.” The opinions expressed belong to him. Corporate America should get ready. Cybersecurity regulations will soon be coming to the United States — and that’s actually a good thing. A new data privacy law, known as the General Data Protection Regulation, took effect in the European Union on May 25 and impacts businesses worldwide. The law gives EU consumers more control over how their personal data is collected and used online. I firmly believe…
