Troy La Huis, a principal at Crowe, was recently named the leader of its global digital security group. He understands the cybersecurity challenges that organizations face today. La Huis and the digital security group at Crowe help organizations analyze their current cybersecurity posture. They also design enterprise programs tailored to needs that are critical for organizations and their stakeholders.
Why is it so important for organizations to re-examine their cybersecurity stances now?
Troy La Huis: We’re experiencing a digital transformation as organizations accumulate digital assets, whether in the form of intellectual property or data – including how that data is made available to many parties. Organizations are switching from primarily face-to-face communication with their clients to primarily digital communication. As business globalizes and organizations rely more on third-party providers, organizations are deploying more devices and moving more sensitive business and personal data.
