Learn more about emerging cryptocurrency news, definition of cryptocurrency, and cybersecurity threats from Charles Denyer, one of the world’s foremost cybersecurity experts and keynote speakers.
There’s quite a bit of hype these days about cryptocurrency, especially since it’s gaining widespread acceptance as a real and viable financial instrument. With over a hundred cryptocurrency exchanges trading at more than $10 billion each day, massive cybersecurity risks are now surfacing. Businesses that are using cryptocurrency exchange accounts are simply unaware of the growing cybersecurity dangers with this electronic form of money.
Cryptocurrency is vulnerable to any number of hacking attacks. There’s counterfeit cryptocurrency. And even worse, hackers can use your social media information to steal your cryptocurrency. There’s simply no end in sight when it comes to cryptocurrency cybersecurity threats.
CEO’s, business owners and entrepreneurs can’t be expected to fully understand the cybersecurity threats with cryptocurrency – after all – they’re supposed to be building a business, and leaving the security to their trusted employees.
Hey CEO’s – Obtain YOUR Competitive Advantage with Cybersecurity
Good news is that there are a number of proven measures that can be implemented for ensuring the safety of your cryptocurrency environment, while also securing your entire network, and giving your customer’s the confidence they’re looking for in working with you. And when you do this, you’ve got nothing but the upside in terms of increased market share, growth, profits, and all the good things that come with outflanking your competition.
Why Cryptocurrency is Keeping CEO’s Up at Night
Business owners have real – and valid fears – when it comes to cybersecurity issues and threats relating to cryptocurrency. There’s the fear of the unknown of digital currency, after all, it’s not paper money. And what about the massive cybersecurity threats, such as hackers who could breach computers, essentially stealing cryptocurrency credentials.
Luckily, for businesses using cryptocurrency, there’s a number of fundamental cybersecurity controls you can put in place for not only protecting your digital currency, but also your entire network, and if you have client’s data – then also protecting their data also. Digital currency is only going to continue to grow, so now’s the time to implement proven cybersecurity measures with a plan that works.
A CEO’s Biggest Fear with Using Cryptocurrency
Jarrod is CEO of a large, growing software business. His clients are on the cutting edge of technology, and so it’s no surprise that not only do they want to pay Jarrod in cryptocurrency, they want Jarrod’s software products to integrate cryptocurrency transaction capabilities. Jarrod is fully aware of the many advantages of cryptocurrency – transactions process quickly, its accepted worldwide, it helps in avoiding chargebacks – but he’s also concerned about the growing cybersecurity threats.
Taking Cybersecurity & Cryptocurrency Head on
There are notable cybersecurity threats with cryptocurrency, luckily, there’s also a way for Jarrod to ensure his environment is safe and secure from growing hackers, which in turn allows for increased cryptocurrency safeguards. All it takes is implementing a proven process that works very well for today’s growing businesses like Jarrod who want to jump into the cryptocurrency industry, but are not sure where to start.
Jarrod started first by putting his entire organization through a brief, simple, yet comprehensive cryptocurrency awareness training program that I developed. It allowed all employees – from the non-technical to the super-technical person to gain a solid understanding about all aspects of cryptocurrency. Jarrod also knew he had to seriously shore up his cybersecurity controls when it came to cryptocurrency – and he did just that – adding multiple layers of protection that were missing. He was able to not only secure his environment, but build in additional controls to his software offerings, which grew his business tremendously.
How Jarrod Created a True Competitive Advantage for his Business
This created immense value to his growing client base, effectively giving him a huge advantage over his competitors in the highly competitive software industry. Jarrod’s business was now confident in taking cryptocurrency as payments from clients, and was able to extend cryptocurrency solutions into his product offerings. His enhanced cybersecurity controls also allowed him to meet a growing number of cybersecurity, privacy, and compliance audits each year. It was a win-win.
Jarrod put aside the fears of the unknown with cryptocurrency by embracing cybersecurity, resulting in multiple benefits for his company, and his clients. Jarrod was looking for that competitive advantage in the marketplace, and he found it, and so can your business.
