In the area of information technology, the storage, movement and manipulation of data most often happens in the context of business, although it can also be a critical part of educational and charitable pursuits, as well as in the public sector, as governments use data the same way. To date, Prieur Leary has enjoyed a long and very fruitful career in the information technology industry, otherwise known as the technology industry. That isn’t all he does, however. In part because he is fluent in Spanish and also understands Portuguese, he also has a lot of experience and knowledge in the area of international business relations. Prieur Leary’s specialty, however, is in the area of information technology, which is the science involving the use of computers to store information/data, or to retrieve, transmit and/or manipulate that data.
Prieur Leary’s IT expertise allows him to know just how important it is to keep systems up to date and eliminate security threats wherever they’re found. The key to doing business online comes with knowing that the biggest threats to any IT system areb often internal, not external. Making sure authentication privileges and access are kept up to date, so that former employees can’t continue to access systems after they have been terminated, for example, is very important, so Prieur Leary does everything he can to make sure the systems he is in charge of are as up-to-date and as safe as possible.
The current concern by Prieur Leary over the security of IT systems mirrors the current state of information technology in the world. If IT is to have a future, the problem of hacking must be addressed successfully. If that doesn’t happen, the risks could make the current openness of the online world a thing of the past. Prieur Leary understands that the greatest security problems are not because of the machines used, but the people who are involved in these systems at every level.
