"A must read for IT salespeople"
Millions of salespeople sell into IT around the world, but few of them actually understand what it's like to be on the other side of the table. This book changes that.
What could be better to drive book sales than a super successful tech company not so secretly trying to squelch your muckraking, hilarious and soon to be published book.

Making a great cup of tea has nothing to do with making a sales call, does it?
Drinking a great cup of tea has a lot to do with the daily enjoyment of life and like many things worth doing, it requires an appropriate set of tools, a process and it takes time to achieve the desired result. So does making a great sales call - doesn't it?
Today PwC published their global 2016 economic crime survey.
This is a comprehensive 56 page survey and will be of interest to senior executives in every company.
Cybercrime is sophisticated, organized and it can bring down your company.
Nobody is immune to the threats posed by organized cybercriminals, activists, terrorists, nation states and a variety of miscreants including your own employees.
Excerpt from article introducing report, "This year’s global economic crime survey points to the disquieting fact that too many organisations are leaving first response to their IT teams without adequate intervention or support from senior management and other key players. What’s more, the composition of these response teams is often fundamentally flawed, which ultimately affects the handling of breaches.
From our firm-wide work on digital strategy and execution with thousands of companies globally, we’ve identified practices that distinguish leaders in the digital age. Chief among these is a proactive stance when it comes to cybersecurity and privacy. This necessitates that everyone in the organisation – from the board and C-suite to middle management and hourly workers – sees it as their responsibility."
We, at Centrify believe in creating least privilege, least access policy as an immediate first step in reducing risk. Policy coupled with MFA across cloud, mobile and data center can eliminate the cause of the majority of malicious #cybercrime and #databreaches.
