    Jeff Dettloff, Barb Holland and Theresa Kent of the Defeat The Breach Coalition Join Tyler Hatch of DFI Forensics

    Jeff Dettloff, Barb Holland and Theresa Kent of the Defeat The Breach Coalition Join Tyler Hatch of DFI Forensics

    Defeat The Breach (defeatthebreach.org) is a cybersecurity awareness coalition of partners from IT, legal and public relations specialists bringing awareness and solutions to one single place!

    About Defeat the Breach: It is predicted that in a couple short years, cybercrime will cost the global economy trillions of dollars. In 2017 alone, cyberattack-related costs for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) equaled over $2.2 million each. Furthermore, over 60% of SMBs go out of business within six months of a major cyberattack. The founding members of the Defeat the Breach Coalition saw these statistics and decided that something had to be done. The Defeat the Breach Coalition is a multidisciplinary alliance of professionals who are experts in their chosen fields, working together to protect SMBs from every aspect of a cyberattack. The Coalition’s members are so committed to defeating the breach that we offer many of our services free of charge.

    Why partner with the DBC? There is no shortage of IT service providers that claim to protect business networks from cybercrime, but what about the fallout that affects other parts of the company? Remember that $2.2 million figure? Only about half of that average loss was the result of damage or theft of IT assets, while the other half came from loss of productivity, disrupted operations, shattered customer confidence, lawsuits, fines, and other related problems. When you partner with the DBC our cybersecurity technicians will protect your systems, our legal team will protect your rights, and our public relations division will protect your reputation.

    Josiah Spackman, DigiByte Brand Ambassador, Demystifies Blockchain and Cryptocurrency and Discusses the Responsible Application of This Technology!

    Josiah Spackman is passionate about technology and digital information.  You can hear it when he speaks.  You can see the excitement on his face.  His expertise in the area of blockchain and cryptocurrency is impressive.  Josiah breaks down a concept like blockchain, which is difficult for many of us to understand, to its simplest form and expresses himself in a way that makes people listen.  

    It's no wonder then that he is perfectly suited to be a brand ambassador for one the world's most premiere blockchain organizations - Digibyte.  What is truly amazing is that he believes in what he does so much that he does it for free!  He voluntarily and very generously gave me his time on a Saturday from sunny Auckland, New Zealand.  

    I hope you will sit back and enjoy this episode as much as I enjoyed recording it with Josiah.  He is a rare breed in this world and it was an honour to chat with him.

    Please follow Josiah on LinkedIn, Twitter and, for more information on DigiByte, please check out digibyte.io.

    Big thank you to Luke Ryan, of the DigiByte Awareness Team, for introducing me to Josiah for this podcast interview!
