In the heart of the Dotcom boom, Jennifer Beckage founded Edgenet, a Buffalo-based internet company that provided cutting edge technology to companies and organizations like Nasa’s Kennedy Space Center, FAO SCHWARTZ, The Buffalo Bills and Buffalo Sabres and another fortune 500 companies.
EdgeNet eventually sold to ChoiceOne COmm, where Jennifer stayed on as VP until she exited in 2002.
With time and resources on her side, Jennifer did what any successful entrepreneur would do…she went to law school.
Now Jennifer is the Founder of Beckage, a law firm that is leading the conversation in cybers and data security and has provided counsel and legal defense in class action cases as well as regulatory actions.
This week on the podcast I talk with Jennifer about cyber and data security, how startups need to focus on this just like everything else in their business, what to do when your company has a data breach and why you shouldn’t trust Sally at the front desk with a thumb drive. All of this and more on this week’s Latitude.
