1. A lot of small businesses think that they need to put a lot of money in, or do too much over their head where it may not even be worth it for them financially, when the reality is actually not that true, there’s a lot of little things you can do. Some of them don’t even cost money. It’s just about training and awareness.
2. A lot of businesses that were previously in offices are no longer in offices and not planning to ever go back, us being one of them. That’s created a lot of opportunities from the cybersecurity standpoint and not necessarily in our favor. (2:55)
3. To actually bridge the gap, I think the first step is getting more women to study these fields. I could tell you that there’s not an equal number of men and women studying the field. (15:25)
