BDO’s Gregory Garrett: Cyber Education, Risk Management Key to Address Threats

Gregory Garrett

TYSONS CORNER, VA, Sept. 14, 2017 — Gregory Garrett, head of international cybersecurity at professional services firm BDO USA, has said companies should work to bolster cyber education and training programs amid the emergence of threat actors such as the “Dragonfly” cyber espionage group, ExecutiveBiz reported Monday.

“A successful cyber risk management program needs to integrate top-down organization education with robust information governance, threat detection and monitoring, and an incident response plan that is ready not if, but when, an attack strikes,” he told Digital Journal in an interview published Saturday.

Garrett highlighted the need for company leadership to understand the risks involved and drive cyber awareness as well as strategies that focus on risk management.
