Summary

On this engaging episode of Startup Junkies, hosts Victoria Dickerson, Jeff Amerine, and Harrison Kitson delve into the ever-changing world of cybersecurity with Eyal Gallico, founder of Apollo IT Services, a company that works with businesses to provide professional, proactive, and affordable IT and cybersecurity services for businesses of any scale or along any journey. 

 

Eyal’s journey began fifteen years ago when he moved from Israel to the United States, settling initially in College Station, Texas. Eyal worked for a subsidiary of Apple Computers before relocating to the vibrant city of Austin where he engaged with various IT and medical software companies, accumulating a wealth of experience in the tech industry. However, Eyal eventually found that his career was neither financially nor personally fulfilling, prompting him to establish his own company.

 

Throughout the conversation, Gallico shares his insights on the latest threats, including the rise of AI-powered phishing attacks, ransomware, and the role of nation-states in cybercrime. Additionally, he provides practical tips for individuals and businesses to safeguard their digital assets, emphasizing the importance of strong passwords, two-factor authentication, and proper backup strategies. The conversation also touches on Gallico's personal journey, from his beginnings as a graphic designer to his entrepreneurial endeavors in the tech industry.
