Based on your expertise, what practical strategies can individuals adopt to enhance their personal cybersecurity, especially when handling sensitive information online or engaging with third-party platforms?

Of note, no organization is too small to be attacked.  And that is because almost any organization, of any scale, has something of value to steal; or has useful intellectual property that could be exploited if shared; or is a pathway to something that somebody else wants for some reason.  So, we need to have a natural skepticism about all things digital and online – questioning the sources of information; considering the risks of fraud and crime online; considering all requests as if they may have an ulterior motive, and certainly never feeling any need to do something quickly.  All of these are warning signs:  psychologists call this cognitive dissonance.  It is a nagging warning from our intuition or judgment that something may be amiss…in that instance, the hardest thing we must learn to do as humans is STOP.  This is the first letter of our proprietary and patented SAVETM method, and that first step is often the hardest to consistently provoke.  Once the user has stopped that first impulsive or instinctive response, we move on the assessing the situation using critical thinking skills, tips and techniques we provide to enhance their knowledge of security best practices.  The third step is to verify the source and identify of all participants in the communication chain directly and using different and validated means; and if we do all of this and still have doubts, to engage a security expert or peer before proceeding.  This simple SAVE mnemonic is useful for any of your reader’s to remember!

As cyberconIQ continues to grow and expand, what are your long-term goals and vision for the company’s impact on the cybersecurity landscape?

We are on a mission to help right the balance between attackers and defenders to help make the internet a safer place for all.  Today, crime-as-a-service is expanding rapidly and cybercrime is often a low cost, high reward venture with few legal consequences.  This has created a plague of loss, embarrassment and fear that we must arrest.  AI is going to make this even more profoundly felt globally as criminals get access to and exploit AI technologies against us before we even realize what is happening.  That is one reason that we introduced, part of a suite of public service tools – all freely available for use by anyone – to help replace ignorance with knowledge and to reduce the fear of AI but also to help instruct users on maximizing its benefits, while avoiding unknown risks.
