Cyber CEO: Start your year off right by prioritizing these three cyber conversations

By | Cybersecurity CEO

Welcome to 2020! New Year is always a time of reflection for me. On December 31st I gather any family and friends that are staying with us and I make them all write down their goals for the next year – what they want to achieve, what they’re focusing on, what will change etc… Then we mail it to ourselves and open them the following New Year’s Eve. It’s a good way to keep yourself accountable and be truly reflective regarding what you’ve accomplished over the last 12 months. As business leaders, we should all get into this practice. When…

By | Cybersecurity CEO, Herjavec Group (Cyber Security)

Recruiting and retaining people will remain the biggest challenge for cyber business leaders for the next five years. – Robert Herjavec Los Angeles, Calif. – November 18, 2019 “There will be 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity jobs globally by 2021” according to the Official Annual Cybersecurity Jobs Report that my firm, Herjavec Group, sponsors.

Cybersecurity CEO: Top 5 Resources To Combat Phishing Scams During NCSAM

By | Cybersecurity CEO

National Cyber Security Awareness Month is here and it’s time to protect against the most popular form of cybercrime – Robert Herjavec Los Angeles, Calif. – Oct. 15, 2019 Cybercrime smells phishy, and that’s because it is. Of all the cybercrime statistics circulating out there, the one that really blows my mind after all this time is that more than 90 percent of cyberattacks are initiated by a phishing scam. I don’t think that percent has changed since it was published over 7 years ago. You might think that with the emergence of newer cybercrimes such as cryptojacking, SIM-swapping attacks, and others,…

By | Cybersecurity CEO, Herjavec Group (Cyber Security)

We’re breaking down the language barriers around Cybersecurity. But we have a ways to go… – Robert Herjavec Los Angeles, Calif. – Sept. 16, 2019 Is there anything that can ruin a CEO’s day faster than a data breach? I don’t think so. A cyberattack can cause instant reputational harm, inflict millions of dollars in damage costs, drive down a stock price, create shareholder unrest, and put a dent in employee morale. So what is a CEO to do? We always encourage cyber literacy and education but how far do we CEO’s need to go to familiarize ourselves? We have a…

The Odds Are Against You – So What?

By | LinkedIn Influencer

Be honest – how many times have you thought about doing something you really wanted to do but gave up because it was too hard? “I can’t move to a new city. I don’t know anyone there…” “How can I go back to school to switch careers if I don’t have a steady income to pay for it…” “I can’t quit my stable job for something risky like starting my own business…” The problem with that line of thinking is that the odds will always be stacked against you. It’s how you react to those odds that will determine whether…

By | Cybersecurity CEO, In the News

Early hacking incidents were a glimpse of the future – Robert Herjavec Los Angeles, Calif. – Jun 19, 2019 It’s summer! And for those of you that need a good summer read, I’ve got one. This month, the editors at Cybercrime Magazine compiled a list of historical hacking incidents – dating back to 1834.

Investing at the Ground Floor – Angels & Entrepreneurs Summit

By | In the News

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – you don’t have to be a Shark to create your own success! But you should be an active learner. I’m a huge advocate for continuing to progress, through reading, taking courses, networking – you get the idea! Everything I’ve learned about business has been through failing, picking myself back up, and not making the same mistake twice. Let me be clear — there is no easy path to wealth, or financial freedom for that matter. Investment of any kind comes with risk. But a big part of creating your own…

By | Cybersecurity CEO, Herjavec Group (Cyber Security)

How to effectively engage C-suite executives in your presentations – Robert Herjavec Los Angeles, Calif. – Jun 19, 2019 We all recognize that a cyber breach can significantly impact an organization’s reputation, and valuation. If you’re heading into the boardroom to deliver a presentation on cybersecurity to C-suite executives, then you’d better be ready to speak their language. To start, throw the tech talk out the window on your way to the boardroom. Technical IOCs (indicators of compromise) are out, and reputational harm that will lead to revenue decline is in. Now that you’re in the door – here are my…
