Sababa Security is growing fast, working with almost 50 cybersecurity professionals in the team. This time we had a chat with Augusto Fedriani, stepping into the company with the goal of helping businesses to recover from a disaster and continue or resume routine operations. Take a look at the interview below and don’t miss the webinar on Cyber Due Diligence on March 29, where Augusto will be one of the main speakers.
My role at Sababa is Cyber Threat Intelligence Manager with a focus on Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery. I am currently working on a project for a client operating in the power generation industry. Business continuity and disaster recovery plans aim to secure companies in case of catastrophic events that can stop or compromise critical services and consequently the competitiveness, the revenues, the business operations of the organisation itself. The subject of Disaster Recovery has become very important following the Twin Towers attack in September 2001. 75% of the firms that had offices there and did not have a Disaster Recovery plan went bankrupt.
I started out as a Mechanical Engineer with a focus on management, but I have always had a passion for IT. I worked for a multinational telecommunications company and then for a very important cruise operator, where I spent the last 14 years. I have always dealt with IT business continuity plans in my career, managing many interesting projects, also in the Far East.
After 14 years in the cruise industry, including working on projects regarding the adaptation of IT to GDPR, I would like to grow in terms of cybersecurity knowledge. Moreover, there is a buzz here in Sababa and I am happy and enthusiastic. It’s a very young company, but I have plenty of energy and curiosity. I want to support the company in its growth and grow together with it!
Corporate data is a valuable asset and as such it must be protected, both from cyber threats and from potential disastrous events. Therefore, Disaster Recovery should not be considered a luxury. It is definitely an investment, but it gives you the chance to survive. Most companies are not able to cope with emergency situations. For example, if a company’s workloads or mission-critical processes are located in a single data center, in the event of an incident, operations would be paralysed for hours. The only guarantee of the company’s business continuity may be geographical redundancy or geo-replication across different data center.
As for GDPR, besides providing heavy fines for non-compliance, it is also a good business card for the company in relation to its customers. It helps to put things in order and reorganise, taking care of and improving the aspect of data automation, processes, procedures and security as a whole.
