Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies: Real Money or Speculation?
Airing this Sunday - The State of the State of Texas

Experts claim cybercrime is costing over $400 billion in theft a year. The issues, which are growing exponentially, involve people, processes and resources. According to our experts, we can’t spend enough money to keep up with, much less solve the problems surrounding cybercrime, security and cyber warfare.

Joining Host Dennis McCuistion to talk more about cybercrime are:

  • Israel Martinez – CEO, Axon Global, Chairman of the Global Manufacturing ISAO; recipient of the U.S. Senatorial Medal of Freedom awarded by the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) and recognized as a leader in his field by the U.S. Secret Service and the Department of Homeland Security.
  • Murat Kantarcioglu, Ph.D. – Professor of Computer Science, University of Texas at Dallas, Director, of the University of Texas at Dallas Data Security and Privacy Lab and
  • James M. Myers – B.S., MS., CCISO, CISSP, ITIL certifications; Senior Business Security Advisor, InfoSec Advisory, Inc.

Business must look at global economic cyber war situations and risks and plan accordingly. In the case of cyber war, an organization may only have 18 seconds to defend their territory.

To date must processes in companies to fight cybercrime are not sustainable. Espionage is overwhelming. The U.S. doesn’t even own our Internet security and all is now owned by ICAN and I ANNA. Of most value cyber thieves- credentials, domain addresses, and IP addresses, which are all easily stolen.

A good part of the issue is people. We spend money on technology, yet don’t always have the most knowledgeable people to run and safely protect our systems. A critical piece of the puzzle is high turnover, which poses another security risk. More people, 17% men and 47% women, leave technology positions than any other industry. Chief Infrastructure officers often stay at one company for 17 months before moving on to new positions. The revolving door of personnel makes a company and its systems vulnerable.

Today there are ¼ of a million jobs unfilled in the industry. There is a high demand for informed people, yet we don’t have the right training in place to prevent the issues we are seeing.

Join us to learn more about the issues around cybercrime and how you can take “precautionary” measures to safeguard yourself and your systems from this growing warfare.
