Want to Weather the Storm? Focus on Agility Instead of Efficiency

For those of you who receive our newsletter and have been following us on Facebook, you’ve probably heard about this latest Forrester report sounding the alarm that all businesses need to commit to some very important changes if they want to survive the next 10 years. If nothing else, the coronavirus pandemic has shown us that this is precisely true. According to the report, organizations need to make both a technology and culture shift — from “efficiency” to “agility.” But what does such a shift look like, exactly?   Read more

How Managed IT Can Support a Pandemic Workplace and Beyond

Managed IT is an obvious necessity during the COVID-19 crisis. But its role will continue to be relevant once the emergency eventually does end — whenever that may be. Many organizations will slowly try to make the transition back to traditional work environments. And just as many won’t, as they have now fully embraced remote working. In both instances, managed IT is essential to have.   Read more

Yes, Your Company Does Need an MSSP. Here’s Why.

It no longer matters what your company does. It doesn’t matter what your organization stands for. It doesn’t matter what you’re selling or even if you’re selling anything. Today, we live in a world where literally everyone is online. Your organization likely has at least some sort of internet presence, regardless of size. And because of that, cybersecurity is a sweeping issue that now affects us all, no matter how much one might think otherwise.

The majority of companies don’t have the time or the cash flow needed to focus on cybersecurity by themselves — not if they hope to focus on what they’re actually trying to do. That’s where a managed security service provider is meant to come in.   Read more

The Expected Evolution of Cybersecurity Threats

Cybersecurity threats are evolving to a point many of us thought we wouldn’t see within our lifetime. Have you heard of Moore’s Law? In simple terms, it states that the processing power of computers will double every two years. This law came out in the 1970s and since then, you can see how far technology has come. However, malicious users can also make use of this technology, which means that threats can grow exponentially in a very literal sense. Here’s a brief overview of what we are already starting to see the early stages of, and how they’re expected to get worse over time.   Read more

COVID-19 has everyone on edge, and attackers are taking full advantage

Ransomware and phishing attacks are not slowing down during the COVID-19 pandemic. On the contrary, cybersecurity threats are actually seeing a tremendous increase while all of this is going on. Even hospitals, where healthcare staff are putting themselves at great risk to treat coronavirus patients, are seeing a rise in the number of ransomware attacks – so much so that even Microsoft sent out an alert earlier this month to healthcare organizations around the globe.

In a previous blog, we shared guidelines put forth by the Department of Homeland Security, NIST, and others regarding what homebound workers can do on their end to take up a stronger security posture. But what about hospitals and other major industries that are more vulnerable now than ever before?   Read more

By Erik Briceno

Password Security in 2020 – Part 2

In our last blog, we covered some generalized password advice that everyone should know. Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a password that can’t be hacked. Phishing scams and malware infections are ongoing problems, and now that we’re in 2020, these serious cyberthreats are on the rise and quickly making traditional password security depreciated.

But the good news is, current efforts to phase out passwords are also giving rise to additional security methods that can (and should) be used in conjunction with standard account protection practices. In today’s article, we’re outlining some very necessary steps to take in addition to simply coming up with a strong password.   Read more
