Currently the top concern of many organizations is whether or not their security is sufficient to protect their information and IT infrastructure. With cyber-attacks on the rise, we need to lead the way in information protection and maintain vigilance to ward off and prevent security breaches. This can seem like a daunting task for anyone.
The last year has been fraught with stories of security breaches, from individuals to multi-national companies, and even government entities. Admittedly, the war against cyber-criminality can seem like an uphill battle.
As businesses move into the cloud, potential security threats may increase. Cloud computing and services can be business enablers, without a doubt. However, we need to keep in mind that each company will have applications and data that are appropriate for the cloud, and those that are not. In short, not every business is the same, and we need to address the unique needs of our customers with every partnership.
As businesses continue to adopt BYOD policies and enable their workforces to become more mobile, additional cyber-security measures need to be put into place. Companies need to ensure that their employees keep all devices
protected, and apply policies that will ultimately thwart the advances of
criminals looking to leverage mobile devices.
From breaches that have been top news for months, to advice for individual
end-users, this issue of the Hub will provide an overview of information security
to help you gain information to protect and manage your IT assets.
