There’s so much up in the air these days: when your team will be able to (safely) return to the office, how long you’ll be stuck doing Zoom calls instead of in-person meetings, and what your business model will look like a year from now. It may have been several months since the pandemic first hit, but we’re still trying to adjust to all of the far-reaching effects. And in times of serious stress and confusion, any semblance of normalcy is welcome. That’s why prioritizing the functionality of your IT security plan is an absolute must moving forward.
Your team is most likely spending more time apart than you ever have in the past. That may come with some perks—fewer pricey lunches, no soul-crushing commutes—but there are plenty of challenges this new normal brings as well. An increase in remote work means your network likely has more vulnerabilities for hackers to exploit than when your team was all under one roof. Protecting those pain points not only keeps your data and personal information safe, it gives your team the time and freedom required to focus on what they do best.
High-functioning cyber security isn’t an accident. It requires diligent, near-constant monitoring, a keen eye for discovering threats, and a proactive approach that can only come from years of experience. If you want to make an investment that truly has an impact on the quality and reliability of your workflow, IT security from 42, Inc. is the best place to start.
