The recent devastation of Hurricane Harvey has reminded everyone in Texas and beyond of the violent potential of Mother Nature. As such, it’s important to be prepared and to expect the unexpected.
Your business is no exception. When it comes to properly securing your company’s crucial data and information, ideally a solution should be implemented well before a natural disaster, a data breach, hardware failure or other unexpected event that could compromise your company’s (and your customer’s) vital information.
Without it, you could find your business completely crippled.
We tell clients all the time about the vast changing landscape of technology. It’s a topic on podcasts, blogs, in board rooms and around dinner tables.
What will our world look like in 5 years? 10 years? How is technology going to change the way we work and play? The amount of data out there today, as well as the velocity of which it’s being created, is almost incomprehensible as you peek into the (very near) future.
Big Data online site Dzone recently published several Big Data Facts about how technology and data are changing the future and our lives.
Your Data Security Plan at your business is more important now than ever before. A few numbers, according to the National Cyber Security Alliance:
“Golf is deceptively simple, endlessly complicated.” – Arnold Palmer
Just as the nuances of golf are much more complex than simply hitting a dimpled ball with a metal stick, a copier, in today’s business world, is much more than just a copier. Known better as a Multifunction Printer, the MFP is where document workflow begins at your office, with the ability to print, scan, fax and copy from one single device.
Online attack can cripple a company, bringing productivity to a halt and comprising its own data, as well as its customers. Proper protection begins with something as simple as a password.
Below are a few ETCS tips for your business to help ensure your passwords don’t make your organization vulnerable to attack. How does your company stand on this?
“It was impossible to get a conversation going. Everyone was talking too much.” – Yogi Berra
While this familiar Yogi-ism pokes fun at a human’s innate need to hear his or her own voice, it also hints at the importance of effective, streamlined communication for achieving anything in life. This applies especially in business.
In business, and particularly in the technology you employ to help operate it, you can never be too careful.
Your copier or multi-function printer is a hub from which hundreds, even thousands of documents come and go regularly. Whether scanning/emailing, uploading PDFs from a USB drive, or simply printing, organizations need a viable plan for securing these documents and the often-critical information they contain. Not only are wasteful practices costly, they carry a security risk for your company.
Does technology at your office, intended to boost productivity, seem to be more of a burdensome time suck?
Your receptionist still can’t retrieve her email. The company’s Internet was down for two hours on Wednesday. The accounting software is running slower than ever before (and tomorrow’s pay day). And in those brief “quiet moments,” you think about all the recent news concerning ransomware. In the back of your mind, you can’t shake the thought: Is your business fully protected from online threats?
The threat of Ransomware continues to grow. The Wanna Cry Ransomware attack, which targeted Microsoft Windows operating systems earlier this month, is a mainstream news-worthy reminder for business owners to be mindful and proactive.
So how confident are security leaders in current defense against Ransomware? A recent survey compiled by Secureworks indicates that the threat is as big as ever. The company collected results from security leaders in industries including high tech, healthcare and professional services. Here are a few of the findings:
