Episode #4, Season 3 of Phishy Business: How the WEF wants to make cybersecurity a business priority
This week, we speak to Algirde Pipikaite, cybersecurity strategy lead at the World Economic Forum about some concerning misperceptions between business and IT leaders on cybersecurity matters.
Our wide-ranging discussion covers the reasons why having a resilient business is good for profits, how to educate the board on the need for cybersecurity, why coding should be taught in schools, and the cybersecurity sector being full of rewarding cybersecurity career opportunities.

The WEF’s mission
The difference between cyber resilience and cybersecurity
The (mis)perception from business leaders that their business is better protected than it really is
How IT leaders can better educate the board on the need for cybersecurity
How to create a new generation of cyber-aware employees
The importance of being bold and trying things out in life
