Someday is Not a Real Day

November 27, 2018 | LinkedIn Influencer

One thing I keep hearing over and over again from people who want to start a business is “I’ll do it someday…Someday.” Someday when I have more stability. Someday when my family is more secure.  Someday when I have the time I need to dedicate to it – SOMEDAY!! I don’t like the approach one bit and here’s why – someday is not a real day ! As I’ve said before, there’s no such thing as genius in the darkness of your own basement. You may have the best idea and the greatest of intentions, but if you’re not executing…

November 21, 2018 | Cybersecurity CEO, Herjavec Group (Cyber Security), LinkedIn Influencer

Healthcare CIOs face an increasingly hostile cyberscape. Los Angeles, Calif. – Nov. 21, 2018 In April’s Cybersecurity CEO column, I explained that manufacturing is the new healthcare. The industry has been under constant attack – from malware like Cryptolocker doing real damage, to insider threat on the rise, to the lack of security controls around interconnected IoT and OT environments – and unfortunately, we’re still seeing an under-investment in cyber defense in this space. But don’t misinterpret my statement to mean that Healthcare CIOs are off the hook. The (cyber) bullseye on the backs of healthcare providers is still prominent….

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…

September 19, 2018 | In the News

Do you ever wonder what it takes to become the person whose success you admire? I do, which is why I spoke with “Shark” and entrepreneur Robert Herjavec. While most of us know Herjavec as the kind and adventurous investor starring on Shark Tank (or maybe you’re familiar with him from his stint on Dancing With The Stars), he cut his teeth (unintended quasi-shark pun) as entrepreneur and founder of Herjavec Group, a multi-national cybersecurity firm. In our conversation, Herjavec opens up about the power of the people you know, how to stand out, gracefully moving between industries, the importance…

Good Shouldn’t Be Good Enough

August 15, 2018 | LinkedIn Influencer

I’ve never been okay with the saying, “That’s probably good enough.”   One of the best parts of running my business is the satisfaction I get by continuously setting the bar higher. Once I achieve a certain goal,  I set a higher standard for myself so others around me are motivated to do the same.   My fellow shark Mark Cuban said it best – “ Work knowing there is someone out there working 24 hours a day with the sole motivation of kicking your ass”. He’s right. You’ve got a target on your back and you can’t afford to…
