Companies should equate cybersecurity to the brakes on a car. Their primary purpose isn’t to slow down the vehicle, it’s to give management confidence it can accelerate safely.

How Matt is building a better working world

“Cybersecurity is a nebulous risk area that seems to change every day. I help companies demystify cyber risks through business-centric strategies that are efficient, effective and sustainable. My goal is to give management, boards and shareholders confidence that their business strategies and operations are well-protected and resilient in the face of known and unknown threats.”
