Cyber Security Awareness. The Security Value of Human Authenticity. With Kevin Yeanoplos of BJY.

"It has SO many economic benefits... by establishing those relationships and being authentic." 

GBD83. Business Valuation expert and AICPA Hall of Famer Kevin Yeanoplos shares some honest and revealing perspectives as we continue our focus on Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2019. He outlines how building better person-to-person connections and authenticity in client-relations can make a company worth more, and how getting comfortable with discomfort might actually be a good thing. In his decades of experience, he's seen that it's often like causing ripples in a pond: we need to throw in a pebble or two before we start making those little waves that drive the right impacts for staff and clients, or for potential investors and future business-purchasers.
