Cybersecurity Frameworks Are Essential to your Enterprise

Businesses are embracing digital transformation to drive agility and ensure their success in a digital-first economy. This includes adapting to digital technologies like the cloud and the Internet of Things (IoT) as part of their transformation strategies.

But as these abilities open companies to more interactions and business growth, they also force them to address risk challenges that are continually multiplying. These vulnerabilities came into light during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic when businesses were forced to accelerate their digital transformation initiatives and increase reliance on third-party vendors. This led to sharing important data beyond the regular network, thus increasing financial, reputational and regulatory risks.

This is where digital transformation frameworks can help create a foundation for robust digital security programs that enable you to keep up with the rapid changes faced while transforming the business.   Read more

Sticking with remote work? Make these 7 steps part of your new normal.

It comes as no surprise that remote working has seen a sharp rise in recent years, something that was taking place even before the pandemic. However, with so many employees working remotely, every business needs a plan for providing those workers with the IT support they need to do their jobs. Security concerns should be at the top of that planning list for your remote workforce.

As mobile technology and network infrastructure continue to progress, so do the variety of threats to IT environments and sensitive information. That’s a particular concern whenever employees work outside the office — whether they’re teleworking or traveling.

While working from home or other remote locations provides numerous benefits for both the employees and the company, it also comes with increased data security risks. To reduce these potential problems, companies should focus on securing data access rather than the hardware itself — particularly when employees use their own devices.

In order to properly provide the IT support your remote workforce needs, follow these best practices:   Read more

If 2020 Has Shown Us Anything, It’s the Need for Cloud Transition.

For a long time, many were using the cloud already — on iPhones, Androids and smart devices of all types — but not in business environments. Largely thanks to mandatory work-from-home policies, this has changed. But even before the pandemic, forward-thinking businesses realized that cloud computing offers the opportunity for increased productivity combined with managed costs. The best cloud providers deliver software over the internet, which eliminates the need to install and run these applications on local devices, simplifying maintenance and support.

Users are connecting to applications that run on a set of shared or pooled servers, rather than running on a single dedicated server. So, they are essentially outsourcing by having these computer services provided by someone else, which allows them to focus on what they need to get done.   Read more
