Rep. Bennie Thompson on Cybersecurity History with Impact and DOT Security
Impact and our cybersecurity partner, DOT Security, teamed up to host an event on the importance of modern cybersecurity with keynote speaker Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS). See what he had to say in our highlight video below.
Rep. Bennie Thompson on The Need for Cybersecurity
As Chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security, Rep. Thompson is keenly aware of how crucial cybersecurity can be to any entity’s overall security posture. It’s simply no longer an option when faced with the real damage cyberattacks can do to businesses and governments alike.
In his speech, Rep. Thompson discussed the differences between “show horses” and “work horses”. Beyond crafting a plan, having cybersecurity experts on your side who understand the changes in the field and can stay up to date with them can be the biggest differentiator between organizations that remain protected and those that don’t. That’s what makes those with expertise work horses.
