Warren Averett’s own Paul Perry was recently featured as a contributor to the Birmingham Business Journal’s (BBJ) Table of Experts Series in the Insights into Cybersecurity segment.
The BBJ’s Table of Experts Series highlights expertise from local professionals about important topics in the business community. In the Insights into Cybersecurity edition of the series, Paul, along with four other industry experts in Birmingham, spoke to common questions about cybersecurity and what businesses should know and do to keep their companies secure.
In the BBJ’s feature, Paul noted, “The outlook is that we can never go on the offensive, we always have to be on the defensive. And, as the cyber criminals get better, we have to keep up with them…As the world becomes smaller as we’re connecting through technology, it just opens us up more for that type of outlook. We just have to keep doing something proactive every single day, keep educating the masses on the right things and wrong things to do, and be diligent with what we have.”
