We continue and conclude our conversation with Tyler Ward, focusing on cybersecurity best practices and where organizations fall short. He does an excellent job of focusing on the problem and suggesting a solution rather than an approach that can result in finger-pointing.

Prepare For Cybersecurity Best Practices

The best part about Tyler’s recommendations is that they make complete sense. We should all automatically assume that one of the cybersecurity best practices is education. Solving a problem will always be challenging when you lack the tools or an understanding of them. He walks us through a better definition of the problem, and then the solution smoothly and logically follows from there.
