IT Leaders Share Their Most Painful Cyber Security Challenge

Arraya Insights Arraya Insights| November 15, 2017

We’ve talked previously in this blog about how stock photos always depict cyber security threats the same way.

All CEOs Should Pay Attention to Equifax Firings – They May Be Next

Arraya Insights Arraya Insights| September 19, 2017

Nobody was surprised when it was announced this weekend that the chief information officer and chief security officer were both out at Equifax. We all knew that was going to happen because those two roles always get terminated after a major breach. Clearly, it’s always the CIO and CSO’s fault, right…or is it? I’ve never […]

Dan Lifshutz Dan Lifshutz| March 31, 2017

My previous post, a recap of how Arraya spent our 2016, kept to the year’s highlights. While this new post will also look back at last year, I’d like to focus in on a single issue: cyber security.
