No longer are our biggest challenges related to going to a digital format. What we’re faced with today with our workplace technology is the threat of cybercrime. Have you established security protocols to keep your system and your data safe?
We’re generating more data than ever before. Across industries, more and more devices attached to their networks are striving for additional computing power. It’s important to keep security in mind in this environment. For IT professionals who are constantly trying to keep the system and data within it safe, there are daily struggles. Most organizations can’t hire additional staff to focus on security due to a shortfall in people with the necessary skill set.
One way to stay ahead of the curve is to fight risks associated with the technology itself, such as by using artificial intelligence (AI, or machine learning technology). AI can identify patterns and alert the right people to specific incidents that need immediate attention, including cybercriminal activity in your system.
When you have a quick way to identify problems, they become less damaging. Many organizations are fighting an uphill battle with this because, over the years, they’ve installed a variety tools to help with security but have trouble with integration. Eventually, it all becomes somewhat disjointed, and those tools become ineffective in identifying and dealing with present-day threats.
The key is to be ready for anything that comes your way, which means you need to have a disaster recovery and business continuity plan in place. While this might be considered a reactive strategy, it’s extremely important because it’s impossible to know exactly from which direction the hackers will hit you.
