"Security is a table stakes business-survival matter".
This October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month in the USA and CyberSecMonth across the EU. On the eve of this month-long focus on the safety and resilience of the internet, we talk to an expert who reveals why it's something that every business should prioritise EVERY day of the year. Kyle Hannan (AICPA & CIMA, London) talks to Tim O'Hara, a Chicago-based IT Solutions Adviser and cybersecurity consultant.
Tim's clients include C-Level Executives in Finance, Operations, and IT cycles of Fortune 500 and mid-sized named accounts covering financial services, manufacturing, retail, business services, non-profits and consumer goods, telecommunications, media, and government. Founded on his CPA, CGMA and Internal Control Certifications, Tim mastered transaction processing, financial reporting, business information exchanges (B2B, B2C, B2G, G2G) and fraud. He is also a technical reviewer of the AICPA's COSO Enterprise Risk-Management Certificate Programme. Find out more about Timothy O'Hara on LinkedIn
