Director in the United States
From his perspective, Prieur Leary’s expertise in the information technology (IT) arena allows him to know and understand how important it is to keep systems up to date and eliminate security threats wherever they’re found. And the biggest threats generally don’t come from hackers in Russia and China. In fact, he will tell every client, the key to doing business of any type online comes with knowing that the biggest threats to any company’s IT system are often internal, not external.
It is that knowledge, always disseminated by Prieur Leary, that makes internal training and controls more important, in most cases, than preventing hacking attacks. One of the biggest problems company IT systems have comes from the IT Department itself, when they don’t ensure that authentication privileges and access are kept up to date. This is necessary, so ex-employees can’t continue to access systems after termination, for example, where they could access and disclose sensitive information to others outside the company. That is why Prieur Leary will do everything possible to make sure all systems in his care are as up-to-date and as safe as possible.
