  • Board Members and Consultants: A Threat to Your Company’s Trade Secrets

    Board members and consultants receive lots of high-value information from your company to do their job. They also can work with more than one company, so that amount of high-value information is multiplied. Not surprisingly, that makes them very attractive as a target for hackers and criminals. But you must carefully balance cybersecurity protection against making large changes to their software environment because these people are difficult to find. You certainly don’t want to turn them off, but you also don’t want them receiving trade secrets at their personal email address. Elizabeth and Nathaniel are joined by Charlotte Edwards from Cyberwolf in this episode to discuss this balance and security options for board members and consultants.
