“Hackers don’t cause breaches–people do; hackers just wait for doors to open, and many companies have a lot of open doors.”

“I hope everyone will join me at the Security Insight Summit. There will be a host of great speakers giving great information about many areas of technology and how to better protect their companies. It will be great opportunity for everybody to give themselves a better education, be better at their jobs, be better protecting their customers as well as protecting their family. I think it will be a fantastic conference.”
