It is perhaps Prieur Leary’s information technology experience and knowledge that allows him to know and understand how important it is to keep systems up to date and eliminate security threats wherever they’re found. The key to doing business online comes with knowing that the biggest threats to any IT system tend to be internal, at least as often as external. Making sure authentication privileges and access are kept up to date, so that former employees can’t continue to access systems after they have been terminated, for example, is very important, so Prieur Leary does everything he can to make sure the systems he is in charge of are as up-to-date and as safe as possible.
And this is what Prieur Leary does; he provides IT services to companies in the financial services industry, including some that provide some of the most innovative and disruptive products in the industry. Cybersecurity is doubly important for Prieur Leary because he often works as a financial advisor. From that perspective, any sort of laxity in the information technology space could cost his financial services clients a lot of money, which would go against his mission to increase his clients’ wealth. Failing to keep information secure would go against that purpose, to be sure.
To many the issue of cybersecurity is a seemingly never-ending quest to keep up with the myriad tools and methods hackers use to defeat security and attempt to gain control of information in an IT system. And because the weakness in every IT system is in people, not devices and machines, that quest is unlikely to end anytime soon, which is why Prieur Leary’s efforts at securing IT will almost certainly always be welcome.
