What are the Top-3 threats to organizations today?

Insiders, outsiders becoming insiders, and ransomware.


What areas of BC/DR do you think organizations should be investing in to secure their resiliency for the next 3-5 years? (Where should they put their money?)

Companies need to ensure that their BC/DR and cyber teams are working as one. Cyber teams need to plan, exercise, and be ready to respond in the event of a breach. Money should be spent training cyber teams how to respond when a breach occurs and running them through practice sessions using “red team” attacks.


Would you consider the influx of Millennials with the exiting of baby boomers to be a challenge to the technology changes in the resiliency industry? (i.e.: loss of knowledge Vs incoming training needs)

To me the main issue is that Millennials seem to know best, and may not listen to the boomers who are trying to transfer their knowledge and experience to them. Thus they could fall into the “history repeats itself” traps that the boomers could avoid.
