What is one thing business owners should be paying extra attention to with regard to their technology?
Cybersecurity. Failure to manage exposure and risk has consequences with many folds. Whether it be lost time, lost revenue, compromised intellectual property and data, degradation of your brand, or legal actions, the cost is high. A well planned and executed cyber security strategy is crucial to every business in today’s world.
What brought you to this career and what do you like most about it?
This profession had provided me the opportunity to very perfectly connect my passions and abilities. I enjoy connecting with people in meaningful ways, helping others and providing education around technology solutions.
If BerganKDV were an animal, what animal would it be?
A wolf. Intuitive, very intelligent and highly communicative. A wolf is known for its leadership qualities and most importantly for being loyal.
What advice would you give to someone getting out of school right now?
Don’t be afraid to fail, and try new things. You are never finished exploring who you are and where you are going. This process never ends. The journey and everything along the way is what it is all about.
