Cyber risk is now firmly at the top of the international agenda as high-profile breaches raise fears that hack attacks and other security failures could endanger the global economy.

The Global Risks 2017 report, published by the World Economic Forum (WEF), included this rather stark warning: “90 percent of companies worldwide recognize they are insufficiently prepared to protect themselves against cyber attacks”.

For Episode 9 of our Emerging Technology Video Series, and as the instructor for our upcoming Cyber Security, Strategy for preventing, detecting and responding to threats course, we asked Tony Vizza some of the burning questions we had about this undeniably necessary industry.

Tony is a seasoned information technology professional who discovered a passion and aptitude for IT since childhood and has never looked back. Tony is currently building Australia’s leading managed information security and information management practice and consultancy at Sententia.

In this episode, we ask Tony how he got started in the cyber security industry, what the biggest cyber security risks to everyday businesses are, his opinion on the future of cyber security, and more!
