Secure Ideas’ Senior Security Consultant Nathan Sweaney sat down with Channel Executive to discuss the channel’s role in data security.

I had the privilege of serving on a panel with Nathan Sweaney at the BlueStar VARTECH conference a few months back. Sweaney is a senior security consultant at Secure Ideas, and he’s recently inked a retainer deal with the RSPA (Retail Solutions Providers Association) to serve that organization’s membership. We asked him for an interview because he’s not just a brilliant security professional; he’s also an advocate for the channel’s role in mitigating SMB data security risks. Here, Sweaney explores why the channel is best poised to help businesses mitigate risk and maintain data security-related regulatory requirements.
