Author of "How Hacks Happen and how to protect yourself." CISO. Ethical hacker. Keeping you safe online.

"How Hacks Happen and how to protect yourself" is my fourth book. I help 7-figure and 8-figure businesses grow their business, increase profits and protect secrets. I believe protecting PHI (Protected Health Information) and PII (Personally Identifiable Information) is something you have to do, and does not have to cost an arm and a leg. In the security business, the bar keeps rising because hackers keep getting better.

I am an ethical hacker. “What does that mean,” you may ask. It means I use the skills, tools and tactics hackers use to exploit their victims, but I have a different agenda. I find your vulnerabilities and help you remediate them before the bad guys find them. It’s like asking the fire department to find ways a fire may start in your office before a fire happens.

I also believe Benjamin Franklin’s “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” applies to security. You can invest to proactively protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your network, your assets and your secrets.

You can take the opposite approach and deny your vulnerabilities exist. If auditors catch you, they fine you for your negligence. If a hacker finds and exploits your business, you incur a crippling cost to recover. Your reputation is damaged beyond repair.

This is your managerial decision. I do technology decisions. I refer this to your wisdom.
