How Cyber Negotiation Parallels Hostage Negotiation
The use of data has been the biggest source of growth in companies and has become the biggest source of risk. When our data is compromised and held hostage, how do we get that data back? Are the negotiations similar to a “typical” hostage negotiation?

He now works with a group of negotiators from around the world to provide education, consulting, and coaching on cyber terror incidents.
