Set High Standards for Cybersecurity
As we know, October is Cybersecurity Awareness month. There is much to be aware of, including how to prepare for an attack, current threats, how well your data is protected, and who has access to it. Read on to learn how following rigorous compliance standards helps your cybersecurity efforts.
Cybersecurity Awareness is Just the Beginning
Readers are likely aware of some of the headline-grabbing cyber attacks in recent years–WannaCry, SolarWinds and Colonial Pipeline, just to name a few. But what about the attacks–and resulting loss of revenue and reputation–that don’t make the news? What is your organization’s cybersecurity posture, and how can it be improved? Read on to learn about cyber threats and how to protect your business.
This is (Not) a Drill: Practice Your Incident Response Plan
Much as your business will practice its plan for getting out of the building in case of fire, it also needs to practice its response to a cyber attack. Your response ideally will be nearly automatic, and the way to make it so is to practice repeatedly. Read on to learn more about an incident response plan (IRP) and practicing the response to a cyber attack.
Is 5G in Your Future?
There’s been a lot of hype about 5G, the next generation of cellular technology. It will build on 4G and LTE, offering faster mobile broadband speeds, extremely reliable low-latency connections, and enabling machine-to-machine connections like never before. As wonderful as this new technology is, it is a work in progress, and requires consideration before adopting. Read on to learn more about the promise and progress of 5G cellular technology.
Perform a Cybersecurity Assessment
How do you know your network and your digital assets are really safe? How can you be sure? Often, it takes a cyber attack and subsequent data breach to learn that your company’s defenses are not what you thought. Read on to learn more about taking stock of your company’s cybersecurity posture to prevent a cyber attack and its damage.
Use UCaaS While Staying Secure
What if your business could integrate all of its communication tools (telephony, video conferencing, chat and more) over the internet? Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) provides cloud computing benefits on a subscription basis, and all your company needs is an Internet connection. Read on to learn more about the benefits – and cybersecurity considerations – of Unified Communications as a Service.
Consider Desktop as a Service to Take Advantage of Cloud Offerings
Out of the many cloud offerings on the market, Desktop as a Service (DaaS, for short) is a convenient way for your company to access computing resources virtually. Without the need for expensive infrastructure and in-house IT expertise, your workers have a variety of computing resources at their fingertips. Not only that, your company can save costs by paying just for the resources you use. Read on to learn more about Desktop as a service, and how to determine if this service is right for you.
Getting Started with Zero Trust
Treating even employees like possible intruders may seem harsh. Yet, with so many devices connected to cloud services and the Internet, “zero trust” may be the best way to keep your company safe from cyber attacks, as it can verify each and every request for access and give workers the resources they need for their roles. Read on to learn more about how zero trust can keep your network secure while keeping you productive.
Data Security in the Cloud
Cloud computing is used by many businesses, including small to medium-sized companies. Reasons for moving to the cloud include the desire for someone else to operate and maintain infrastructure, and to use a pay-as-you-go subscription model. In spite of the draw of cloud computing, companies need to consider what data they want in the cloud, and how that data will be managed and protected.

Business Benefits of Data Governance
Data collection by businesses is a given, and a great deal of data is collected by a business in the process of performing its functions. In turn, it can help a business perform its role. For data to be used well, it must be of top quality, be available, and kept secure. Read on to learn more about data governance for your business.
