“As an IT veteran with more than 30 years of industry experience, I’ve seen firsthand the damage caused by outside attacks and insider threats,” Lieberman said. “I’ve repeatedly witnessed IT groups that neglect to roll out new security patches and operating systems, even when faced with immediate threats; companies that go years without changing built-in or shared privileged account passwords; and numerous other risky practices. By leveraging my knowledge and the contacts I’ve built in private industry, government agencies and the military over my career, we offer unique insights and expertise to bring these issues to the public.”
