Rich believes that cybersecurity should be embedded in the culture of any organization that exists in the world today. With more than a decade of experience in the CISO advisory space working with many industries and with organizations of all sizes, he knows better than most that cybersecurity is not a technical, back-office activity, but a necessity for business success.
“Digitalization has pushed technology to the forefront of every business. The business moves at multiple speeds, in a bi-modal fashion, and to stay ahead of the competition and in line with the modern consumer’s expectations, technology, and therefore security must be considered in all key business decisions.” — Rich Tibbitts
