Eran Kahana was interviewed on AM1280 The Patriot on the importance of a proactive cyber security plan as well as how cyber security and data breaches can affect all companies. The segments aired twice daily the week of October 13-17, 2014 to highlight to the 2014 Cyber Security Summit which was recently held in Minneapolis. Eran served as an advisory board member and was a panel moderator for the event.
In the interview, Eran states that "everybody is affected by cyber security breaches—cyber security is the health of our nervous system for our economy." He explains that "it begins with senior management understanding that this is something important…because cyber security is really something people address only after something happens and not on a proactive level…and the financial repercussions for the business can be really overwhelming." Thinking data breaches only happen to large companies is, according to Eran, "one of the biggest risks that companies out there are taking right now."
