Some Effectual Words for Budding Entrepreneurs
As Mr. Saxena asserts, “Cyber Security is a serious business. Knowledge in the Cybersecurity domain and quality of service/ product are paramount for the success. There are no shortcuts in ensuring cybersecurity; minor slippage may lead to a disaster. In security, no one recognizes you for the 99/100 attacks you mitigate. They only blame you for 1/100 attack you couldn’t mitigate. That is why one has to give his 200% to hit 100/100 every single time.”
