Hey there,

I'm Leah Freiman CEO of ItCon.

allow me to introduce myself.

I began my Professional Journey as a Morgage broker, I was doing awesome deals and earning a great buck. Then came the market crash of 2008, boy was I hit hard. I lost all my Money.

My career path took a complete swerve and I landed In the IT industry. At first, I was receiving many push backs from all over, everyone claiming that the technology field is totally male-dominated industry and a woman can't ever make it there.

Being a person that never settles for a "no"( and eager to prove everyone wrong) I pissed the comments off and took the gigantic leap.

Fast forward a decade later, I oversee a huge Cybersecurity Firm.

My company started out as regular Managed service providers, later on, we opened our cybersecurity division and went BIG.

Why Cybersecurity? what is the importance?

Cybercriminals are getting smarter as we speak, 82,000 new malware threats are being released per day!

Cybercrime is now a thriving business and the digital underground is one of the most successful platforms. one in five small business get hacked and EVERYONE is a target.

Millions of credentials are being exposed and SOLD on the Dark Web and 99% of the victims are completely unaware of that.

600,000 facebooks accounts are hacked each day, and the numbers to all this are just aggressively increasing.

I know I am completely overwhelming you with a whole heck of information, I simply want you to get a vivid picture of the chilling cyber world I'm referring to.

Your credentials might totally be for sale on the Dark Web as we speak... I can even navigate the dark web for you to check....seriously!

Go ahead ask me anything!!!!

Do you ever feel like being in cybersecurity is like playing a giant game of whack-a-mole? How do you keep on top of all the attacks coming at you?

Hey Brandy,

I like the way you put that down...... I guess I can say it kind of does.....

We are closely associated with the cybersecurity division of the FBI and United States government. We have white hackers working for us on a constant basis. As they say "forewarned is forearmed"

Feb 12, 12:14PM EST0

The atmosphere in our company is very "focused" we don't believe in giving every employee a whole heck of different responsibilities rather each employee has their specific criteria he/she has to meet, our employees are expected to work with all due diligence and execute each task efficiently and expertly. We demand a lot from them, each employee thrives here and absolutely loves what they do.

What are the Simulated Phishing Attacks and how do you help tackle this issue?

Feb 11, 12:32PM EST0

Edith, out simulated phishing attacks, are quite interesting.

We send out "phishing attacks" to all our end users, we send them out randomly to different end users. Each end user get's a different personalized email, it can be coming from internal departments, their bank, Amazon...etc., if an employee clicks into the email he/she is automatically directed to a "remedial training" giving education on what to look out for, because if this would be legit they could have drowned their company right now. At the end of each month, the president of each company gets an email report stating his phish prone percentage, detailing exactly who his weak employees are.

Feb 10, 8:54AM EST0

Beleive in yourself, follow your passions, discover your dreams and make them real. "Never let anything you stop you from achieving greatness" Choose a path that's the best fit for you, there are NO SPEED LIMITS nor DIRECTIONS. Let yourself be the leader.
