A Cybersecurity Minute with Robert Herjavec
October 27, 2016
President Barack Obama and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) recognize October as National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM). Now in its 13th year, this month is focused on increasing awareness about the importance of cybersecurity as well as personal and enterprise cyber hygiene. Herjavec Group is proud to be a NCSAM Champion!
The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to the connection of physical devices in our world which is increasing at an exponential rate. The networked devices in your home, school, and workplace are constantly increasing, and along with this, the security threat landscape continues to evolve.
We sat down with Herjavec Group Founder & CEO, Robert Herjavec, to talk cybersecurity for National Cybersecurity Awareness month. Robert believes that IoT has “made it easier for hackers to break into your network, your phone, your personal email accounts, and all kinds of devices that are connected in the Internet of Things.” With the responsibility of managing hundreds of thousands of “things” that may be connected to a network, businesses must prioritize access control and governance. Identity and Access Management (IAM) helps protect the organization from outsider and insider threats by determining:
- Who should have access?
- Who does have access?
- What can be done with that access?
- When should they have access?
- For how long?
- To what?
According to Robert, organizations will have no choice but to adapt IAM practices into their current security framework in order to protect their increased reliance on IoT. Watch the video below for one minute on cybersecurity with security expert and Herjavec Group Founder & CEO, Robert Herjavec.
