Technology can be a great thing. But harnessing its possibilities requires the right professionals and the right protections. Bart McDonough, the CEO and Founder of Agio, has spent more than 20 years working in cybersecurity, business development and managed IT within the alternative fund industry. Ten years ago, he founded Agio a hybrid managed IT and cybersecurity services provider for the financial services industry. He also launched his debut book, Cyber Smart: Five Habits to Protect Your Family, Money, and Identity from Cyber Criminals, in early 2019.

In this episode, Bart discusses managed IT and cybersecurity, where they overlap, how they differ and why he believes it’s important to offer both services. He also talks about cyber vulnerabilities in a remote-working environment. In addition, Bart explains some misunderstanding about the “cloud”, offers advice to new managers on mistakes to avoid, and looks to some key trends for the future.
