Episode 30- Cyber Security and Coming Back from Retirement with Steve Bakker
In this episode, we talk with Steve Bakker of Business IT Professionals (BITP) about Cyber Security and Coming Back from Retirement.
On the matter of Cyber Security, we discuss the very real threat of a cyber attack and the potential ramifications. Clearly, this is not an issue to be taken lightly…or ignore altogether. Steve explains some of the particular risks for accounting and financial planning firms, including working out of the office and in the home environment. He also outlines some prudent preventative measures along with reasons to avoid the free WI-FI in hotels, travel lounges and other public places. Details of a preliminary cyber security assessment service provided by BITP are also discussed.
In addition to the main topic of the podcast, Steve further shares some interesting perspectives on the notion of retirement and living a meaningful life in the present. This is based in no small measure on Steve’s personal experience – being retired then coming back into the workforce. You will most likely find this section of the podcast to be quite thought-provoking.
