CompTIA Cyber Roundtable, NYC

This past week Matthew Pascucci, Cybersecurity Practice Manager at CCSI participated in a Cyber Roundtable. Check out this article about the roundtable discussion by Teresa Varela-Lauper.

Dr. James Stanger is CompTIA’s Chief Technology Evangelist. He’s a CompTIA super hero in my book….traveling all over the world, speaking at events, impacting and representing the IT industry and CompTIA near and far.

I’m thankful to work with James on a series of roundtables we recently hosted in the New York area. He’s engaging with or without his beloved Diet Coke and facilitated great conversation among our cyber professionals. Here are his top take-aways from the discussion.

The implication is this: Yes, we need to educate our end users. But we also need to limit the number of tools we keep lying around, waiting for hackers to turn into improvised hacking devices.
