Host, Laura Patterson interviews Ziggy Shanklin, CEO and Founder of White Cloud Security, Inc. for her new monthly program: Ready, Set, Grow! Ready, Set, Grow! is to provide a venue for CXOs to share their insights on what it takes to successfully achieve organic growth, lessons learned, the role they believe Marketing needs to play in growth and how they measure Marketing’s contribution beyond this “quarters” revenue. 

Steven “Ziggy” Shanklin, CEO and Founder of White Cloud Security, Inc., is a leader in groundbreaking development for the cyber-security industry.

About White Cloud Security

White Cloud Security provides a Trust-Listing cyber-security service that blocks all untrusted Programs and Scripts from running on users’ computer systems.

In 2017, the WannaCry and Petya Ransonware attacks infected hundreds of thousands of computers worldwide. Hacking has became a big business for criminal organization and is now more profitable than the illegal global drug trade in marijuana, cocaine and heroin combined. The cost of Ransomware for 2016, grew from $209 Million in Q1 2016 to $1B, and was expected to reach $5B in 2017. Application Whitelisting/App Control technology is the number one type of breach prevention solution recommended by Dept. of Homeland Security’s US-CERT, the NSA, the FBI, Australia’s ASD, Canada, AIG, SANS, ISA, and NACD; but is nearly impossible to deploy and manage on a large scale. App Trust-Listing, the Next Generation of Application Whitelisting/App Control, uses Secure Crowd-Sourcing and Trust-Inheritance to simplify the deployment and management of which Apps are Trusted to run in your network. It’s a simple and effective solution to the rapidly expanding array of today’s ransomware and malware threats.
