- About Alex Gounares
Publisher’s Note: Alex Gounares is not only a globally respected technology expert and CTO, and the CEO of an exciting new startup in cybersecurity – he is also leading a team that has taken a dramatic new approach to protecting hacker targets. At a time when most of us have just about given up on the idea of a technological answer to the growing number of attacks on our systems, Alex’s approach brings new hope.
Even so, as he points out in this important essay, it only provides half the answer. Until there’s a meaningful incentive for top executives to pay much more attention to this problem, no amount of technical savvy will win the day.
As the head of MI6 once wrote to the top 500 business leaders of Britain: There are two kinds of CEOs today – those who have been hacked and know it, and those who have been hacked and don’t know it.
I trust that SNS members are in the second category, and will find Alex’s insights both inspiring and useful. – mra
