    5 Things You Need to do When Creating a Privacy Program

    Businesses starting to build a privacy program need to ask themselves this: 
    How would customers feel if their data was used in a way that ends up in the New York Times? What would happen to your business? Good privacy policies benefit the business, don’t hurt engineering morale, and protect the customer. But for all of that to happen, you need customer trust. 
    In this episode, Nishant Bhajaria, director of privacy engineering, architecture, and analytics at Uber, discusses the steps to take to protect customers and achieve business objectives.

    In this episode part 13 of our #1SEAT mini-series, Christina Westfall, Threat Detection Analyst at Pareto Cyber, explains how getting a training program in place can empower your team from the job description all the way through independent employee success.Show Links

    How to Find Cybersecurity Talent in a Candidate-Driven Market

    How to Find Cybersecurity Talent in a Candidate-Driven Market

    Cybersecurity companies need to be realistic when recruiting new talent. 
    With so many companies hiring, there is stiff competition for candidates. Job descriptions that require a long list of certifications for entry level jobs won’t get filled easily. One with a salary below market or few days off won’t either. 
    In this episode #15 of our #1SEAT series, Tomas Walker, former cybersecurity specialist recruitment consultant for Premier Group Recruitment, tells us how cybersecurity companies need to be better prepared for the current job market.

    5 Things You Need to Know About Modern Disaster Recovery

    5 Things You Need to Know About Modern Disaster Recovery

    The biggest mistake companies make is not having a suitable disaster recovery plan in place. They think that a box of tapes serving as their backup is enough. 
    That might have been true a couple of decades ago, but with ransomware attacks happening every few minutes, that won’t cut it anymore. 
    In this episode, Curtis Preston, Chief Technical Evangelist of Druva, explains how a disaster recovery plan is like health insurance. It requires time and money upfront when things are okay, but it saves you when the worst happens.
