"I AM ONE, I CAN DO SOMETHING.”  A perfect motto for two “think tank experts” who never expected this kind of career change.  I used to work with Kimba at Channel 9 (KUSA-TV) and we remain very close friends.  A busy mom of a young son, learning about her and Dave create and grow this concept into a life-changing model for dozens of young women and girls has opened my eyes to what can be done when good old-fashioned resourcefulness uses today’s very effective crowd-sourcing techniques. Meet our next set of think tank experts. By Esty Atlas

Organizations are increasingly vulnerable as a result of technological advances and a changing workplace, including remote access, big data, cloud computing, social media and mobile technology. The amount and importance of data continues to grow, as does the sharing of information via online networks. Today, cyber security is no longer just an IT issue; it is a challenge for the leadership of any organization. Rather than focusing on technology alone to address these issues, it’s critical that management, boards and shareholders understand the most common cyber security mistakes so they can adopt a flexible, proactive and strategic approach to building an informed organization.
