The two interviewees spoke about how far backup solutions have come over the last 20 years, and how companies like Commvault shifted the focus toward data management and just how vital data is in almost every walk of life, especially business. 

 

Damon and Jonathan also spoke about how data being in the cloud does not necessarily mean that data is secure, and how ransomware’s increased danger is causing businesses to truly take notice of data protection. 

 

Small businesses are a huge target for attackers, with Jonathan explaining that 80% of small- and medium-sized companies that are attacked close within 6 months of the event. Damon and Jonathan discussed the best way for government to legislate against cybercrime, but asserted that protecting your own processes and databases is the best answer. 

 

The interview was part of The European’s Global Thought Leaders series, in which innovators from a selection of companies discuss the topics that are shaping our societies of tomorrow while demonstrating excellence in their fields.
