Key Takeaways:

“60% of small-medium businesses that ultimately get hacked, end up going out of business within the next three years.”- Matt Fore

“We, as capital raisers, are in charge of our investor's trust-- trust that we won't fraud them, trust that we'll operate a property, and trust that we will keep their financial information secure.”- Matt Fore

“Build a wall. And what I mean by that is protecting your data."- Matt Fore

“We get a little bit lazy in the way we do our passwords. We use the same password, with maybe a number change or an exclamation point or something like that change. But a randomly generated password is going to significantly increase the difficulty and a hacker's ability to attack your network.”- Matt Fore

“Cybersecurity is always a balance.”- Matt Fore

“But no matter how tall you build that wall, somebody can build a bigger ladder. And one thing that I've seen in cybersecurity is you have to be right 100% of the time, the hacker only has to be right, once.”- Matt Fore

“When we're talking about backing up data, I definitely think it's important that you backup your data through the native tools. So let HubSpot do its thing. Let Microsoft do its thing, but that you also take a copy of that offline.”- Matt Fore
