Sponsored by Businesswire

John Shegerian, Co-Founder and Executive Chairman of ERI, the nation’s leading fully integrated IT and electronics asset disposition provider and cybersecurity-focused hardware destruction company, is a featured guest on the current episode of the “What Keeps You Up at Night? video podcast.

The show, hosted by best-selling author and one of the world’s leading cybersecurity and wireless technology experts, Scott Schober, regularly features thought leaders from the cybersecurity space, describing some of the biggest threats they have encountered.

In the current episode, Shegerian shares what he has learned working with contacts at the FBI and about the tremendous cybersecurity risks individuals, businesses and government agencies all face – from a homeland security level to an individual privacy level – when end-of-life devices are not responsibly recycled and data is not properly protected or destroyed.

“It was an honor to talk with Scott and be featured on his excellent and informative show, sharing information on one of the most critical and pressing issues in the world today – the hardware hacking of private data,” said Shegerian. “As we as a society navigate through the current COVID-19 crisis with huge numbers of people working from home, protection of privacy has become a greater issue than ever before. It is important that we share vital best practices for protecting digital privacy and security with the cybersecurity community and beyond.”

“The ‘What Keeps You Up At Night’ podcast continues to be an eye-opening experience for all viewers including cybersecurity experts,” said Schober. “John’s expertise and insights made for another great episode and I look forward to speaking with him again.”
