The technology that businesses use is ever changing. So are the threats those businesses face.

Just as every company is now a “tech company” in some form, every company must put some effort into cybersecurity. This can be a challenge, as the US currently faces a cybersecurity talent gap to the tune of 600,000 unfilled jobs, but meeting that challenge could protect an organization from a multi-million dollar loss.

With the stakes so high, it’s imperative that a company has a cybersecurity strategy — but what drives that strategy, and what shape should it take?

For the month of April,’s reporting has dug into these issues for Cybersecurity Month of our editorial calendar. For some additional perspectives, we asked our Talent companies the following question:

How is your organization currently prioritizing cybersecurity?

“Crossbeam has four main values, the first of which is ‘Trust is our Business.’ This guides us in all of our decision making around security. When it comes to protecting our customers and employees’ data, the ‘industry standard’ is not enough in our eyes. We have a responsibility to do as much as we can to defend that data.”

  • Chris Castaldo, Crossbeam CISO


“FinLocker is prioritizing cybersecurity by taking a security first approach in all that we do, starting with the planning and development of our product and continuing throughout the lifecycle. We have heavily invested in many cutting-edge security applications and principles to stay ahead of new threats and vulnerabilities. We go above and beyond to meet our client expectations, and the expectations of our end users, about the safety and security of their data.”

  • Micah Carr, FinLocker cybersecurity manager


“It starts at the top levels of the organization. From the BoD to our executive team, cybersecurity is a point of emphasis, which inherently becomes a priority for the company. This awareness ultimately breeds a healthy cybersecurity culture allowing our team to collaboratively work with departments across the enterprise.”

  • Drew Hughes, URBN CISO


“The protection of the data and assets our clients entrust to us is an integral component of every product and service that Vanguard provides. Vanguard has hundreds of crew members solely focused on this effort, though we recognize that the next generation of talent is imperative to delivering for clients. Through partnerships such as, we prioritize building connections and relationships with talented individuals across Vanguard’s footprint. You never know how you can impact someone in their career journey, and we value the networks we’ve cultivated through these partnerships.”

  • Srinath Chigullapalli, Vanguard global head of identity and access management
