“One in three companies are going to be breached this year,” said Henry Sienkiewicz, Chief Revenue Officer for Secure Channels and an instructor in Georgetown’s graduate program in Technology Management. “Most of them never know it.” That might sound unnerving, but Sienkiewicz had still more disturbing news to tell moderator John Gilroy in this discussion on protecting personal, government, and corporate data: “Each company has an average of 106 attacks that they aren’t aware of—and these are successful attacks.” Sienkiewicz was joined by Technology Management instructor Lisa Schlosser, and General Gregory Touhill, President of Cyxtera Federal Group.
