This week Dr. Eric Cole and I talk cybersecurity and entrepreneurship. Most of you will have been on the edge of your seat while you tracked the news of the ransomware attack on the Colonial Pipeline. Security can not be an afterthought. Remember this is not a drill; this not hype. 

Also, preorder Dr. Cole’s new book Cyber Crisis which will be released on June 1st.

Dr. Cole is a world-renowned cybersecurity entrepreneur and founder of Secure Anchor Consulting, Eric understands the dangers of cybersecurity and knows how to build successful companies. 

Today, Dr. Cole shares the many lessons learned from overcoming adversity and staying committed to your purpose. Dr. Cole focuses on security and innovation with a mission to make cyberspace safe in a world where it can be an unrecognized danger and threat.
