GREENCREST Discusses What Every Business Owner Should Know About Information Technology with Avaap’s Vice President of Advisory Services, Angelo Mazzocco

July 28th, 2022

Columbus, OH (July 27, 2022) — In GREENCREST’s latest episode of the Ignite Your Business® Podcast, host Kelly Borth talks with Angelo Mazzocco, vice president of advisory services at Avaap, who shares how business owners can address network and cyber security related threats, how data and artificial intelligence are the future and what business owners can do to overcome growth and infrastructure challenges.

During the podcast, Mazzocco discusses how changes to the workplace over the past few years have affected information security and business owner concern over keeping critical data secure.

“It’s amazed me how our industry has had to become so focused on security,” Mazzocco said. “I think back to the days when we weren’t as integrated across the internet, and it just wasn’t a worry. It was a low priority. But today it’s top of mind, and now over the past few years when we moved everyone to work either in their office or at home, we have to be even more concerned.”
