'Hackers are Lazy. Scammers are Misfits.'

Meet Johnny Young, aka JohnE Upgrade. This 35-year vet of the IT wars has seen it all — from facing 500 years in prison to currently offering cybersecurity advice to the good guys.

If there’s one thing that has become very apparent in dealing with cybersecurity issues throughout the industrial sector, it’s that responding to these challenges means taking a look at things from a different perspective.

Well, that’s what we have with this episode. I recently sat down with Johnny Young, a 35-year veteran of industrial IT and cybersecurity. He’s embraced his role as JohnE Upgrade and launched CyberD.TV - a streaming subscription service devoted to providing comprehensive cybersecurity training.

What follows is the first of two episodes featuring JohnE. Here he talks about some of the basic, yet vitally important measures every employee can take in guarding against any number of cyberattacks.

JohnE  has also set up a 50 percent discount for Security Breach viewers. For six months, instead of the usual $19.99 monthly subscription, the cost will be $9.99 when entering the promotional code JEFF. It can be cancelled at any time.
