Hacked Again ― Why One Of The Nation’s Top Cyber Experts Says No One Is Safe And How To Protect Yourself
Cyber warfare has become a very real part of our business, our government, our technology and our culture. Real cyber attacks have increased exponentially in the past 12 months and the growing fear of them has gone off the charts. Still, many of us do not incorporate simple, best practices when it comes to things like creating passwords or engaging with social media. When it comes to help with cyber hacking, Scott Schober, CEO of Berkeley Varitronics Systems, is the go-to man for advice.
Schober’s new book: Hacked Again: It Can Happen to Anyone Even a Cyber Security Expert follows his initiation by fire into our craziest period of cyber security hacks and scandals ever. Trace through Scott’s media highlights and personal blunders as he tries to run a successful business and all while trying to not get hacked again.
This respected cyber security expert and industry go-to man was there from the beginning of the Target hacking over a year ago and witnessed the chaos and turmoil a cyber attack of this magnitude can inflict on a business. Lax security standards led to this breach which prompted Target to commit $100 million to technical upgrades. And Target wasn’t the only corporate giant to take a hit – so did Nieman Marcus, Adobe, Yahoo, Michael’s, and hospitality industry leader White Lodging (which includes Marriot, Hilton, Sheraton and Westin).
Schober regularly appears on Good Morning America, Bloomberg, CCTV, CBS News and CNBC as a technology and cyber security expert, with numerous appearances on Fox Business Channel, Al Jazeera America, Fox News, Inside Edition, MSNBC, CNN, PIX11, The Blaze, OAN and more.
Berkeley Varitronics Systems is a 40-year-old provider of advanced wireless solutions for the telecommunications and security markets. Since we know the problem of hacking is only going to continue to increase, President and CEO Scott Schober has become the trusted expert that corporations and individuals turn to when it comes to understanding cyber security issues and what needs to be done to keep personal information safe.
