In episode No. 17 of Human Capital, we talk with cybersecurity expert John Reed Stark, president of John Reed Consulting, who founded the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Office of Internet Enforcement.
Stark, who was an SEC enforcement attorney for 15 years, has been serving since 2017 as senior lecturing fellow at Duke Law School teaching the law of cybersecurity and data breach response.
He also served for more than five years as managing director of Stroz, Friedberg’s global digital risk management firm, where he led cybersecurity, incident response and digital compliance engagements for corporations.
Listen in as Stark details why the cybersecurity challenges are exacerbated by the COVID-19 work-from-home environment, with ransomware attacks, phishing and business email schemes also on the rise.
“There are legions of soldiers waking up every morning with the sole desire to attack U.S. systems and exfiltrate important data,” Stark says.
