In the modern world, technology is a significant part of our lives and has over the years grown into something we cannot do without. It has helped make life easier through improving communication, reducing the time to accomplish tasks and so on. However, there are downsides to technology, and one of them is cyber theft, which has made the likes of William Saito to come up with Cybersecurity solutions.
William Saito has been recognized by some of the biggest companies like Ernest & Young and NASDAQ for his expertise on cybersecurity. This tech genius has a way to come up with ideas and solutions to crisis management. For starters, his curiosity as he explains; “I’ve always been curious about how things work. I couldn’t just be satisfied by understanding how to use a computer, I needed to know how it was built and I would take them apart to understand the inner workings, all the way down to the microchip level” such curiosity has helped William Saito in understanding crisis and how to deal with it.
Saito has been in the middle of the crisis such as 9/11 and Y2K that have broadened his understanding of cybersecurity. By learning the minor mismanagement and small errors from these incidences, he has incorporated this approach to help companies strengthen their security and prevent risks from happening.
Besides his experiences, William Saito is passionate about matters involving tech as he said in an interview, “I’ve been involved in the technology industry since it’s early inception” William had made an impact in the industry at the age of 10 as a computer programing intern and starting his firm while in college.
William Saito has used his ability to think critically as a strength to face any crisis. In his experience in college, he had to “fake it till he made it” following an investor’s interest (NFC) in meeting the people they had invested with. William and his team established an office space and equipped it to look like a real office and this set things rolling afterward.
In addition, William Saito believes in teamwork. He collaborated with friends to make his software firm successful. To him, “a good leader recognizes the value of talented people and uses this strength to help complement weaknesses.” He, therefore, prefers to work with companies formed by teams. William has excelled as a venture capitalist, IT strategist and an author as well.
