SC Magazine Quotes MediaPro’s Steve Conrad In Article on CEOs Taking Cybersecurity Seriously

MediaPro's Steve Conrad chats with SC Magazine about the importance of the c-suite taking cybersecurity seriously.

A company executive should lead by example in any industry, and this is especially true when it comes to cybersecurity.

Unfortunately, many executives don’t make cybersecurity a priority, SC Magazine’s Karen Epper Hoffman writes in a recent article.
