Kim Verska: Cybersecurity Consciousness in the C-Suite

Kimberly Verska, partner and Chief Information Officer at Culhane Meadows, was interviewed and prominently featured in an article titled “Cybersecurity Consciousness in the C-Suite” as published by SC Media-The Cybersecurity Source.  The focus of the article is on how enterprises can be better protected from the repercussions of a data breach when the board and management team is knowledgeable about data security and ensures comprehensive security policies are in place.

“Locking down data securely at every point of an enterprise’s operations is finally getting the attention it deserves,” says Verska, who concentrates her practice on corporate and technology transactions as well as regulatory issues, particularly in the arena of data privacy.

“The executives who joke that they ‘are helpless with all this new technology stuff,’ may end up being the weak link that creates a major hole in a company’s security systems,” says Verska. “Because no matter how effective or cutting-edge the security technology one implements, in the end, the best defense against cyberattack is an organization-wide culture of security.”
