    8 Reasons Why Cybersecurity is Doomed for Small Businesses with John Barker

    8 Reasons Why Cybersecurity is Doomed for Small Businesses with John Barker

    In this episode of the Business Samurai Podcast, I discuss 8 reasons why I think Cybersecurity will continue to be a failure for small and medium businesses and what we can do to start correcting the problem.
    1. Tech people don’t speak business/too into the weeds (can’t elevate the conversation)
    2. Business side only know the buzz words (incorrectly)
    3. Tech have to be technically correct (happens to me all of the time annoying)
    4. Everything is a risk regardless of the business impact
    5. Too many frameworks?????
    6. Business haven’t started working enough with SOPS/ROLES/ etc (then get dropped in a major compliance framework that is as much process as technical controls) (This includes tech team with things such as patching, reducing SPOF, etc)
    7. Business underestimate their RISK profile until its too late (it can't happen to me until it does)
    8. Businesses think cyber is strictly and IT problem
