Posted by Dan Sanderson on Dec 1, 2020 2:15:41 PM

In the world of next generation and emerging technology, Edge networking is unquestionably a hot topic. With 70% of the worlds data created at a network edge, IT professionals are challenged with what platforms of technology are needing to be implemented on your network edge or branch locations.

Not only do we have to think about branches. What about a farmer sending GPS data to the cloud for more accurate planting and fertilization? The Edge is among us, and let the challenges of securing and delivering maximum WAN performance at the edge is key.

Microsoft, TikTok, and My Idea for a Secure Login

Posted by Joe Moline on Aug 10, 2020 1:38:58 PM

Microsoft perhaps buying TikTok is all over the news currently.  I am by no means willing to weigh in on how politics has surrounded this potential transaction and I am probably not the one in our organization to discuss the security implications of having TikTok on your phone.

Modern Approach to Business Continuity Planning

Posted by Dan Sanderson on Jun 17, 2020 3:30:23 PM

Business Continuity Planning

It has been an interesting last few months. A common theme that we are seeing with our clients is that the Covid-19 pandemic has made business owners really scrutinize business continuity.  Some were caught without any pandemic plan.  Others had the plan, but it was outdated.  A select few had a good plan in place and are now on the recovery quicker than most other businesses.

We’re taking a modern approach to Business Continuity Planning. Our strategic businesses leaders and engineers have vetted out a solution to help our clients streamline their Business Continuity Planning. Plan4Continuity Business Continuity Planning is a dynamic Cloud based continuity planning solution that creates a new plan or converts manual and outdated business continuity processes into intelligent, automated workflows that can accelerate business continuity planning.

Multifactor Authentication is Crucial for Security

Posted by Shane Vinup on May 6, 2020 1:12:19 PM

MFA or multifactor authentication was important even before a large group of us moved to working remotely.  Now that we are there, we are being targeted even more.  Brute force attacks have increased significantly targeting RDP as people moved themselves to their home offices.  Very targeted phishing campaigns have also increased as bad actors are using the COVID-19 situation to take advantages of our vulnerable state.  One option we can use to help mitigate a portion of that risk is deploying multi-factor authentication.

It’s Time to Turn our Attention to your BCP

Posted by Clyde Cooper on Apr 28, 2020 12:34:56 PM

A lot has happened so far in 2020. If you are like most companies, you have quickly deployed a remote workforce. As we pivot into our new normal, we are having a lot of conversations about their Business Continuity Plans (BCP). In many instances, they simply didn’t exist or they need some work.  Let’s explore that a bit below.

I’ve spoken with some companies that implemented their existing Business Continuity Plan (BCP) and it went relatively well for them. They had the right policies, procedures, and stake holders in place and things for the most part were rolled out as planned.

I don’t need an Info Sec Security Assessment, or do I??

Posted by Clyde Cooper on Feb 14, 2020 8:43:41 AM

Why invest a lot of time and money doing a cybersecurity risk assessment to receive a lengthy report to find out all the things you know you didn’t have, all the things you know are broken and all the things you know need to be fixed?

Yes, a top-notch Cybersecurity Analyst will report all of that, but it should only be a portion of the overall findings.  An experienced Cybersecurity Analyst will find a lot of things your IT department didn’t know because they either lack the expertise or simply lack the bandwidth to get to these findings.  Most IT departments are overused and are spending the majority (if not all) of their time just trying to keep the lights on.
