It is clear that cybersecurity is very important for Prieur Leary, and not just because all information technology (IT) specialists had better be diligent about it to keep their jobs, but also because he works a lot as a financial advisor. Any sort of breach in the information technology space he controls could end up costing his financial services clients a lot of money. Since his mission in the financial industry is to increase his clients’ wealth, not keeping information secure would go against that purpose.
Cybersecurity is a seemingly never-ending quest to keep up with the myriad tools and methods hackers use to defeat security and attempt to gain control of information in an IT system. And because the weakness in every IT system is in people, not devices and machines, that quest is unlikely to end anytime soon, which is why Prieur Leary’s efforts at securing IT will always be welcome, if only to salvage the technology for the future and keep it open, as it was meant to be.
