Episode 7: Cybersecurity: It’s Not Scary … If You “THINK” with Tony Woods

Tony Woods shares his impressive resume, working with National Money Mart, BC Ferries, and now as the owner and president of THINK Communications, working with business owners with white glove IT services.

THINK stands for Truth, Honesty, Integrity, Networking and Knowledge; their tagline is “Great People, Great Ideas.” As a company, they focus on two key areas, Left of Boom and Right of Boom because it’s not a matter of if it happens, it’s when it happens. As Tony describes it, Left of Boom is how well you’re protecting your organization from cyber threats. Right of boom is ok; they’ve got you; how well can you recover from it.

Tony advises on a major point of protection: 14 Character Passphrases and multifactor authentication. You can also focus on training your human firewall with phishing campaigns. The truth is, ignorance is not bliss, and while Tony points out that you don’t truly need cyber insurance, you do need protection, and the best suited one is from a professional IT service like THINK.

THINK today offers a Security Stack that includes specific pieces of software on machines to block the execution of unknown files, 24x7x365 real-time monitoring from a SOC (security operations center), and other tools of the trade. Including MDR – Manage, Detect, Respond. And for free, they offer an Attack Surface Report and a Blast Radius report.

—The Security Stack with THINK.
—Training your human firewall.
