NetStandard’s John Leek speaks to 21st Century Data Solutions, including the role of data security.
KANSAS CITY, KS – September 14, 2017 – NetStandard Inc. (“NetStandard”), a leading provider of strategic technology solutions for small- and mid-sized businesses, announced today its participation in the Kansas City Business Journal (“KCBJ”) – Table of Experts, a panel with the discussion topic of 21st Century Data Solutions. The article is expected to be published on September 15, 2017, in the KCBJ print and online at bizjournals.com/kansascity.
The panel, moderated by Stacie Prosser of the KCBJ, features – John Leek who is Chief Strategist and Partner of NetStandard, Greg Elliott who is Director of Business Development – Data Centers of LightEdge Solutions, and Ryan Weber who is president of KC Tech Council.
NetStandard, known for its diligent focus on data security, weighed in heavily on the role of data solutions as well as the potential risks. “Security of critical data is planned and cannot be reactive,” said Leek. “As we saw in the recent Equifax data breach, which will potentially affect 143 million people, it is critical that organizations consider both the value and liability they hold when they have private data and intellectual property. We encounter small- to mid-sized organizations all across the Metro who rely on the wrong people or simply have not prepared to protect the data they hold.”
Leek has more than 30 years in the technology industry and has been invited to speak around the country on information technology, risk mitigation, innovation, cyber security and the future of business in the Cloud. He is responsible for developing strategic plans that align corporate growth goals with emerging technologies for NetStandard clients.
