Now is the Time to Engage and Get Ahead
With these news tools and communication channels coming to light, you also have to think about whether these tools are safe and secure, and do we have the means to audit these tools for security purposes. It’s time to take the conversation from “oh we should do that” to “we are way behind here and we need to take action”. Businesses need to take their IT and cyber security programs to the next level with utilizing cyber security personnel and training your employees. It’s time to get ahead of the curve and switch your philosophy and financials.

Now Is The Time To Engage And Get Ahead Transcript
Chad: The variety of new technologies to engage with and the variety of new communication channels to bring in, centralizing those things in a way that raised me to a kind of a healthy place of fear because there’s every time you add something new to your suite of tools, it brings in for me, the next logical question is, are these tools secure? Are they safe? Is that third party that they have security and about my best interest in mind for me and my clients. And so that lends itself to some ideas with how to move forward here with the cybersecurity perspective. And I think it’s time to take this time to think the conversation from a, Oh, Oh, we should do that, to we’re way behind here and we need to take action, right? So now is the time to engage with cybersecurity folks who can get you that assessment, who can get you that audit, who can help you do those checkups. Stop putting off your annual physical. So you don’t fall down and die from a heart attack that was easily preventable, but for the sake of time or convenience you weren’t getting your checkups. Sometimes there’s no sign until it’s too late. So I think it’s time to take your IT and cybersecurity programs to the next level also with training. So get on board with user awareness training if you’re not there already. Talk to somebody like a provider similar to us, or get on board with dark web monitoring solution, get ahead of the game. We need to stop being behind the curve here and get ahead of it. With COVID-19 we talked about flattening the curve with cybersecurity. We have to talk about getting ahead of the curve and planning ahead and being proactive in a way where we can get ahead of situations to get proactive alerts on things like exposed company credentials on the dark web. So I would say, subscribe to a system and a solution that can help you do that and learn more about what that is and bring in the experts that can train your staff and help you get your cybersecurity program to the next level. And I also think it’s time to focus. It’s time to outsource critical IT functions that have been neglected, and it’s time to add senior IT leadership to your program if you don’t have the expertise in house. So it’s time to make a philosophical shift and a financial shift to really place these kinds of things at the forefront of what’s important because if you read last year’s cost of a data breach report from IBM, and the average cost of a data breach is something like $8.19 million and the impact and effect of it, lasts for years. And that’s old data that I’m talking about right there. So, in a loving way, I would like to say it’s time to put some of those things in a more of a place of importance for all of our organizations.
