The same security layers from 10 - 15 years ago are no longer sufficient to protect you from the ~10 new threats per SECOND that are being found on the Internet today. Some of these new threats bypass ALL security and seek to encrypt and ransom your Office 365 account data; some of the new threats just want to drain the resources of your computer to mine for Crypto-currency. New threats, and attack methods, with increased frequency, require new and more dynamic protection to keep your team safe and productive.
Delivering security to protect technology workers has not changed much in 15 – 20 years: Operating System Patches, Anti-Virus, and firewalls. While these methods are still necessary, they are no longer enough to protect the modern technology worker when multiple new threats are found every second, and the ‘office’ is no longer confined by where you go to work.
...if you want to hire the 1 in 10 workers who feel that training is not important.
A three-year research project commissioned by Middlesex University’s Institute for Work Based Learning found that:
‘9 out of 10 (workers) felt that training was important, particularly if it was delivered in the workplace’
We have been part of the noise, communicating the overwhelming amount of data, statistics, and stories that you hear, and read, regarding what can go bad if you don’t have the right security. Oh and by the way, the more security you put in place, the more difficult it is for your team to do their job – did we forget to mention that, or is it just what we have all become accustom to over the past decade?
Last week, Mytech hosted a quarterly party of Whirlyball and laser tag. If you haven’t heard of Whirlyball, it can be most accurately be described as hockey, lacrosse, basketball, and bumper cars all in one. To put it mildly, it is a whirlwind of fun! All 30 of those who attended laughed consistently throughout the entire two hour event.
“The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance “– Alan W.Watts once said. Change occurs to everyone, in every form and at all times! We see that, as the fall season approached, the trees embraced the change and flaunted the beautiful colors on their leaves. Now that winter is just around the corner, the trees still stand tall even though many have shed their leaves. They will brave the winter knowing fully well that the lush green leaves will come again.
