SAUSALITO, Calif., Jan. 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Cybercrime is the greatest threat to every company in the world, and one of the biggest problems with mankind. The impact on society is reflected in a report predicting cybercrime will cost the world $6 trillion annually by 2021, up from $3 trillion in 2015.
Cybercrime damage costs represent the greatest transfer of economic wealth in history, risks the incentives for innovation and investment, and will be more profitable than the global trade of all major illegal drugs combined.
Robert Herjavec, founder and CEO of Herjavec Group, and a Shark on ABC's Shark Tank, has responded with a new blog, which elevates the cybersecurity discussion to CEOs and C-suite executives at organizations globally.
The blog, aptly named Cybersecurity CEO, is hosted by Cybersecurity Ventures, the world's leading researcher and publisher covering the global cyber economy, and a trusted source for cybersecurity facts, figures, and statistics.
"Cybersecurity CEO is a destination for C-suite level conversations," says Robert Herjavec. "I'm excited to partner with Cybersecurity Ventures to share market insights, recommendations and of course reinforce the importance of getting back to cybersecurity basics, as we all work to build more proactive cyber defenses."
"Robert Herjavec has been a valuable contributor to our Annual Cybercrime Report in each of the past two years," says Steve Morgan, founder and Editor-In-Chief at Cybersecurity Ventures. "We are excited to publish his official cybersecurity blog, which is extremely valuable content for our global audience of CEOs and C-suite executives, as well as CSOs CISOs, and IT security teams."
The first edition of the Cybersecurity CEO blog released yesterday. In it, Herjavec informs it isn't just hacks and data breaches that CEOs need to be concerned with. "Compliance will be the biggest driver of security in the coming years," says Herjavec. "I firmly believe compliance drives over 50% of the market today."
The new blog will publish monthly at CybersecurityCEO.com.
