That is the angle most consultants, IT professionals and businesses overlook. Compliance can lead to greater profits.
During your interaction with Attorneys and accountants, what were some of the cyber-security areas they were interested in?
RG: More and more, attorneys are concerned about digital evidence and cyber-forensics. Other than that, their interest in cybersecurity is pretty minimal. Getting better Google ranking, more business through LinkedIn, and more friends on Facebook – that attracts their interest – not cyber-security.

RG: That is too big of a question to answer. See the short answer above and then watch my video at http://

In US, Federal Trade Commission plays a vital role as an investigator of privacy and security breaches. What should IT Security professionals be aware of with respect to FTC’s role in security?
RG: The FTC is not an investigator in the traditional sense – they have become the guardians of consumer privacy in the US. I recommend watching the several webinars and presentations I have done on LESSONS LEARNED FROM THE FTC at http://www.rajgoel.com/lessons-learned-from-the-ftc-federal-trade-commission to get a better idea.
What are your thoughts on SOPA, PIPA and ACTA legislation from consumer perspective? Will consumer privacy and security be safeguarded due to these legislation?
RG: SOPA, PIPA, ACTA do NOT protect consumer privacy. These laws are bought-and-paid for by the RIAA and the MPAA to protect their business model and profits in a dying industry. It is like horse-buggy manufacturers passing laws that limit vehicles to no more than 20 MPH/30Kph.
