Understanding the Wannacry Malware Attack and Costly Data Breaches

An Exclusive Interview with Centrify CEO Tom Kemp

[Listen and Profit Now™]

This week’s episode of Monday Morning Radio is ripped from this month’s business headlines. It will be of special interest to listeners who own or operate online businesses.

Our guest is Tom Kemp, CEO and co-founder of Centrify, one of the fastest growing security vendors in the industry, serving more than 5,000 customers, including a majority of the Fortune 50.

Initially, our plan was to speak Tom about data breaches – such as those that hit Yahoo and Target. These much-publicized cyber attacks are becoming more frequent, more costly, and more widespread among all online businesses – big and small.

Then the WannaCry ransomware attack hit, impacting hundreds of thousands of the world’s computers in more than 150 countries. The malware forced some businesses to close while their IT people scrambled to find solutions.

So we expanded the scope of our interview with Tom Kemp to include data breaches and ransomware. They are, after all, cyber attack first cousins.

Centrify recently commissioned an independent study, conducted by the Ponemon Institute, to gauge the impact of data breaches on companies and their customers. The study is unique in that it incorporates the view of three diverse groups: IT experts; senior level marketing and corporate communication professionals; and consumers.

What Centrify discovered are insights that every CEO and business owner should be aware of: Cyber attacks are never confined to your IT staff. They impact every aspect of your company, including sales, marketing, finances – and for publicly held companies – shareholder value.

Whether you work at an Inc. 5000 company, a Fortune 50 company, or simply a business that does business with these companies, you need to know how to protect yourself from data breaches and other cyber attacks sure to make you – and your customers – wanna cry.

From Multi-Millionaire Entrepreneur to Comatose Stroke Victim and Back

Businessman Mark Moore on Overcoming Life’s Most Debilitating Challenges

[Listen and Profit Now™]

This week is exactly ten years since Mark Moore, a 46-year-old multi-millionaire tech entrepreneur, had back-to-back strokes that nearly killed him.

His recovery was arduous and life-changing. When he could walk again, Mark walked away from the business world and now dedicates all his talents and energies to helping other people rebound from some of life’s most debilitating challenges.

Mark is the author of a just-off-the-presses book titled, A Stroke of Faith: A Stroke Survivor’s Story of a Second Chance at Living a Life of Significance.

The book retells the uplifting story of Mark’s recovery and rebirth, and is an inspiration for anyone – not just stroke survivors – who are faced with what may seem like insurmountable obstacles.

Mark is interviewed on this week’s program by host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart.

Every president since Teddy Roosevelt has been the guest of Denver’s iconic Brown Palace Hotel & Spa, except two (Calvin Coolidge and Barack Obama).

Wizard Academy co-founders Roy & Pennie Williams are among the list of distinguished guests whose names grace the venerable logs of the hotel’s register.

Built in 1892, the triangular-shaped Brown Palace is the crown jewel of Rocky Mountain luxury hotels.

For the past 11 years, Marcel Pitton has served as the managing director of the hotel – overseeing its day-to-day operations and $42 million in facility upgrades.

At the end of May 2016, Marcel checks out of the Brown Palace to pursue new adventures.

Originating this week from the Eisenhower Presidential Suite at the hotel, reputation coach and Monday Morning Radio host Dean Rotbart talks to Marcel about what it takes to orchestrate a team of 400 employees to provide consistent world-class service – including the Forbes Four-Star and the Triple A Four Diamond designations every, single year.

Investigative reporter that he is, Rotbart also gets Marcel to settle the question once and for all about whether the Brown Palace’s permanent guests include ghosts – who many people swear they’ve encountered. Get the definitive answer, exclusively, on Monday Morning Radio.
