“I’m most interested in embedding security into the culture and practices of the places where I am.” says Eric. “Think about your car. You no longer think about locking the doors as the car is now designed to lock the doors for you and the brakes are simple to use despite being incredibly complicated technology. This is what I’m out to attain for my clients, security that is easy to use and baked into the regular business workflow,” shares Eric.
