Holiday Season is a great time to recap and be thankful.
By granting our clients’ IT wishes we focus on what is important to them. This approach has helped us shape our customer-centric service model.
With an increased demand for extended service coverage in the Ottawa area, Genieall is excited to announce our expansion to the National Capital Region.
In the past few weeks, we examined risks and recommendations for organizations caused by the Coronavirus as well as provided a few things to keep in mind when working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Health officials are urging people to stay home and to exercise proper hygiene to stay safe and help prevent the virus spread.
But what about cyber hygiene?
Turns out you should apply the same level of care to your supportive technology.
With the current situation around Coronavirus, many workplaces and venues made a tough and rightful decision to temporarily close their doors (that is to promote social distancing) based on the recommendations from local and federal health authorities. That means many people are now required to work from home until COVID-19 is under control.
Last week, we shared our risks and recommendations for businesses in the light of the Coronavirus outbreak. Since many organizations elected to have most of their staff work remotely, we feel it is important to provide a few simple yet essential tips for everyone who is working from home.
Yesterday, the World Health Organization (WHO) classified Coronavirus (or COVID-19) as pandemic. The virus is already impacting many day-to-day activities including mass gatherings (conferences, concerts, sport events) which get postponed, cancelled or moved online (web conferencing).
On the other hand, the organizations worldwide are facing increased pressure due to COVID-19 which is already disrupting business operations of many companies.
The questions is How prepared is your organization for Coronavirus?
This is an excerpt from Genieall’s speaking session at CanWEA O&M Summit 2020.
Drive up to a facility, the gate is unlocked. Walk into the O&M building and grab a seat. So far, no one has asked your name or for your credentials.
What 2020 will bring directly depends on you… and your perception of cyber security.
We won’t be wrong if we say that large companies with enormous budgets and innovation opportunities have always been a desirable target for cyber criminals.
At the same time, their developed security systems designed to protect against an unauthorized entry strengthen their position in the cyber space (although not 100% of time – that’s a different story).
However, the latest trend is that SMBs are at hackers’ gunpoint nowadays just as (if not more often than) large corporations.
Imagine that you’ve been tasked to secure a server storing restricted information. Some of the tools you will use might include: AI-powered endpoint protection solution, Next-Generation Firewall, network segregation, privileged accounts, MFA etc. Voila! It’s now secure.
You go home happy with a sense of accomplishment only to discover the next morning that someone walked in to the office and took out the drive with that precious data (which may trigger heavy financial losses) and walked away… Brutal!
The importance of cyber security is growing day by day thanks to the rapidly advancing technology.
The ongoing cyber security incidents and more importantly the impact of those are driving organizations towards recognizing cyber security component as one of the core business requirements.
