During the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses worldwide were forced to adapt because the world around them had changed quickly. As we all know, a significant shift came when many employees were forced to work from home.
Since then, there has been a surge in new cybersecurity risks affecting businesses and organizations globally. In today’s video, Jeremy Kushner, CEO of BACS Consulting Group, provides cybersecurity tips for post-pandemic companies.
Invest In A Modern IT Infrastructure
Today’s IT and information systems are agile enough to help companies anticipate business needs and adjust ahead of market curves. Whether it’s a threat from new market entrants, emerging suppliers, substitute products, or shifts in customer behavior, IT applications help with predictive modeling and strategic decision-making.
The stakes have never been higher post-pandemic. Information technology is no longer considered a budget item. Instead, most executives and managers view it as a strategic investment that will increase revenue while reducing operating costs.
IT today serves many critical business functions and provides efficiency improvements and reduced operational redundancy. It’s for operation management, decision support, and executive strategy development. New technology also leads to new opportunities, leading to competitive advantages.
Ensure There Is Ongoing Cybersecurity Risk Training
Train your employees on cybersecurity best practices and awareness to reduce the risk of network intrusion. The first step for your entire staff is to become familiar with cybersecurity education.
- Make Cybersecurity Clear To Your Employees
- Encourage Taking Great Care Of Your Devices
- Teach Employees How to Spot Suspicious Activity
- Reinforce Confidentiality With Leadership And Staff
- Examine Individual Cases of Cybersecurity Breaches
- Take Advantage of Online Cybersecurity Courses
The key to any cybersecurity training is to use simplified terms the average person can understand. Ensure your message is easy to understand, connects with them personally, and each member sees the different areas to monitor.
Insist On A Uniform Cybersecurity Standard
A cybersecurity standard for your organization is a set of guidelines or best practices. That information helps your leadership team improve the company’s cybersecurity posture.
Organizations can use cybersecurity standards to help them identify and implement appropriate measures. That allows them to protect their systems and data from a cyberattack. Standards can also guide how to respond to and recover from cybersecurity incidents.
Cybersecurity frameworks generally apply to all organizations, regardless of their size, industry, or sector. That is vitally important to companies and organizations that must comply with state and federal laws and regulations.
Partner With A Cybersecurity Managed Services Provider
Large and small businesses and organizations have started understanding the gravity of not having appropriate cybersecurity protection in place post-pandemic. Companies partnering with cybersecurity-managed services providers have discovered new opportunities to grow while staying secure.
Some companies have lower costs and access to security experts, resources, and tools. Others now have the knowledge that they have constant coverage and scalability. And still, yet, some decision-makers know it fulfills any compliance management they need.
