GBD129. Cybersecurity Month. Securing the Shadows of IT.

"You do have to be equipped to ask enough of the RIGHT questions."

October is Cybersecurity Month in the EU and the USA, so all month we'll be sharing episodes about IT risks, threat-mitigation and security strategies. The founder and CEO of NMGI, our guest Randy Johnston is recognised as a Top 25 thought-leader in accounting and technology. Hosted by Kacee Johnson, Strategic Advisor at CPA.com (the business and technology arm of the AICPA), this conversation with Randy introduces the concept of 'shadow IT'. 

Talking Points. These are just some of the topics discussed in this episode.

  • Definition of  "Shadow IT".
  • The increased risks associated with the decentralised and remote workforces which are the new normal for business.
  • How to identify risks.
  • Best practices to minimise potential threats.

Our Guest. Randy Johnston is a veteran technologist with almost 40 years' experience guiding accounting firms and businesses to select the most appropriate technology tools, manage security, and optimise systems. Recognised as a Top 25 thought-leader in accounting and technology, he's regularly featured in Accounting Today's list of the Top 100 Most Influential People in the profession.  Connect with him at www.randyjohnston.com.
