Amid our excitement to be featured at the event, we got to thinking more about everyone participating in Disrupt this year and in the future. Startup companies and investors are two groups that many don’t immediately think about when it comes to cybersecurity, despite compelling reasons to. Perhaps we need to remind ourselves it doesn’t hurt to disrupt our thinking about our target markets, stretching the imagination beyond what we’re used to.
When you think “cybersecurity threat,” what comes to mind? A hoodie-clad hacker in a basement breaking into the network or an army of cyberattackers sending ransomware at other unsuspecting nations? Probably. But the truth is, many incidents can actually start from inside your customers’ organization.
We use mobile phones for so much more than talking and texting – half of all web traffic comes from mobile devices, and there are apps for everything from social media to transportation and beyond. Mobile devices appear near-constantly in the workplace as well – but we don’t always take the time to think about what that means – especially in terms of security.
