Tech Alpharetta hosted James Azar, co-founder of CyberHub Summit, for a Lunch and Learn discussion with Tech Alpharetta’s Innovation Center startup members on Wednesday August 15. The topic focused on the importance of putting safeguards in place to help protect against cyber breaches, as these safeguards can help to both protect the startup and demonstrate compliance and preparedness to customers.
Azar discussed a number of potentially applicable compliance standards, the need to have and demonstrate to customers a disaster recovery plan, and the critical need for cyber insurance. He also emphasized the importance of auditing servers regularly, adopting good cyber hygiene standards and changing passwords every 30 days. In addition, Azar stressed the consequences and costs of not preparing for a cyber breach before it happens.
