Braden Perry Gives Cybersecurity Expertise in Article
Cybersecurity is a big deal, and according to securitymagazine.com attacks are made every 36 seconds. Hackers are most likely to target an individual person, rather than an entire organization. A important tip to avoid a cyber attack is to use different password throughout all of your online platforms. Kennyhertz Perry partner, Braden Perry, shares his expert cybersecurity advice in article on punchng.com.
“Braden Perry, a cybersecurity expert, gave his overview, and one of his postulations is that, traditionally, information technology was not understood initially by many companies, especially by their top management. The role and responsibility of IT departments in some of these companies did not get the much-deserved support. After the various incidences of cyberattacks, there now appears to be an increased understanding between the IT departments and management.
The top management cadre of many companies now mostly have renewed interest in their IT departments and they have, of course, been looking at the need to get updated resources that will keep the organisation and its data safe. Sadly, a number of companies are, however, still paying less attention when it comes to upgrading their information security system. They may, however, have cause to regret their nonchalant attitude towards ensuring the establishment of tight security measures in order to protect their online data from the prowling hackers.
Companies should realise that upgrading of security is paramount in the fight against cybercrime. Whenever a cybersecurity company rolls out an upgrade on any of its security products that your company is utilising, ensure that you carry out the upgrade. This is because failure to constantly upgrade as and when due, renders your security obsolete in no time and exposes your online data to vulnerabilities from hackers.”

Kennyhertz Perry assists clients with data security needs, blending traditional legal experience in the corporate and litigation arenas with technical acumen.
We assist clients in prevention, developing robust information security programs, including administering internal compliance and risk assessments, which include the development and implementation of corporate policies and procedures required for compliance with state and federal privacy and security laws, and information security best practices; information security policies; records retention and management policies.
In addition to prevention, Kennyhertz Perry can prepare security incidence response procedures, identify, assess, contain, and mitigate privacy and security breaches, and work with law enforcement to assist in the investigation of the incident. Businesses that are the victims of cyberattacks also must determine when and how to cooperate with government agencies during investigation of an attack, and how best to do so. The lawyers in our privacy and cybersecurity practice, as well as members of our Government Enforcement practice group have deep experience, from both government and private practice, in this area, and help companies navigate the often complicated interactions with government agencies, and can provide both counseling and representation where the threat of prosecution may arise.
Kennyhertz Perry also assists with IT resiliency understanding and engaging at the top management and board level. Traditionally, IT has been misunderstood, and management would not understand the role and responsibility of IT departments. Kennyhertz Perry bridges this gap at all level. At the Board level, directors not only need to be sophisticated with business issues, they also need to be versed in today’s cyber and IT. Translating an understanding of the importance of a proactive IT security policy, and feeling like the company is “on board” with IT security efforts. Many companies have very robust policies and procedures for their business processes, which sophisticated Board members can understand. IT is different. It’s a different language for a business person, and unfortunately most Board members will ignore or defer on issues they don’t understand. So when an IT department presents a robust plan for proactive IT security, it may go ignored or disregarded. This can lead to a reactive plan only that focuses on the “when” as opposed to prevention. IT is a different language. We serve as Board IT/cybersecurity liaison to be the “go between” and translate the IT language into business and vice versa.
