by Mark Barrenechea – Vice Chair, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Technology Officer, OpenText Corporation

In a recent keynote address to OpenText’s Enfuse 2020 conference, Mark Barrenechea emphasized the importance of cyber resilience for businesses in the digital era. He pointed out that since the pandemic accelerated digitization, it has also brought the issue of cybersecurity to the forefront.

“Cyber resilience needs to be job #1. Every organization needs to be secure and future ready, especially with new technologies like 5G and quantum on the horizon. 2020 has shown us that while we may never be able to fully predict the challenges we will face in the future, a strong foundation is the key to weathering uncertainty with agility.”
