Cybersecurity is perhaps extra important for Prieur Leary than for a great many specialists in information technology (IT). That is because he also works as a financial advisor. He understand that any type 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. To Prieur’s mind, 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.
Although a lot of Prieur Leary’s experience and knowledge lies in the area of international business relations, and he is fluent in Spanish and understands Portuguese, his primary specialty is in the area of information technology, or IT. Most people think of IT as relating to the use of computers to store, retrieve, transmit and/or manipulate information in the form of electronic data, whether it is used in a business context, an educational or charitable context or any other.
