Brad Deflin is the Founder and CEO of Total Digital Security, a cyber security firm that provides private clients and families with enterprise grade solutions for their personal technology and information. Brad began his career as an airline pilot for People Express before co-founding an airline ground support company that provided fueling, catering, cleaning and other services to airlines operating from second tier airports. After selling that business, Brad became a wealth advisor to high net worth clients. His work in that arena helped him see the wide gap that existed between the cyber security solutions available to businesses and the less extensive options available to individuals. He made it his purpose to eliminate that gap.
Mike and Brad cover a ton of great stuff in this episode, like why he sees the internet today as the modern day pick pocket and why 99.9% of people haven’t protected themselves from these thieves, how the combination of the change on the internet from Moore’s Law and the Network Effect have exceeded human’s ability to adapt, how cyber-crime is expected to steal more than $6 Trillion in 2021 and, most importantly, how you can take a number of simple, inexpensive steps to significantly decrease your chances of becoming a cyber-crime victim.
And now, here’s Brad Deflin.
