Cybersecurity - "Things that keep me up at night"

I've been asked a few times over the last few months or so what it is that keeps me up at night - mostly in the context of business risks for Comunet - but it extends naturally to our partners and clients. Of late, I've consistently been giving the same answer - Cyber security.

There's almost never a day that goes by where we hear another local story of a business who has felt the impact of a cyber attack - mostly ransomware and phishing, but sometimes some other type of compromise.

Almost 6 months into leading the teams at Comunet, I’ve had quite a few people ask me what is the biggest surprise or challenge that I’ve come across. 

Probably not-surprisingly, it’s been dealing with the common misconception that “the cloud” is less secure than on-premise solutions – which is exacerbated by the ambiguity that exists in many organisations around cloud computing in general. 

Cloud computing has now been around long enough to no longer be a fad, and the statistics around cloud use and security incidents leave little room for debate on the fact that, configured correctly, Cloud Services (such as those provided by Microsoft or AWS) are more secure than on-premise solutions.

We have spoken previously about how Comunet can help your organisation against the threat of cybercrime. In this blog post, we wanted to go into more detail about some of the threats that your team members should be aware of. As we often advise our clients, the end user is often the last line of defence in an organisation’s cybersecurity program. By helping your team members understand the threats that exist, you can ensure that this last line remains strong. Here are some of the key threats that your organisation should be on the lookout for.

We have blogged previously about the increasing sophistication of cybercrime and the reality is that cybercriminals can strike from anywhere in the world. That is why Comunet has worked hard to form strong partnerships with some of the world’s leading cybersecurity companies. In doing so, we are able to bring our clients the global best practices for defending their organisations against existing and emerging threats. In this blog post, we wanted to discuss some of Comunet’s partners in the field of cybersecurity and how, in conjunction with these partners, we can help your organisation in this important field.

Today we wanted to start what we hope will be a series of blog posts on a very important topic in the technology industry – cybersecurity. The importance of cybersecurity has only increased in recent years, as cyber criminals become more sophisticated in their approach and the ramifications of such attacks become more significant for organisations that fall victim to such crimes. This is an unfortunate reality, but with the correct approach in place, businesses can ensure they have the necessary strongholds to withstand such attacks. In this post, we wanted to talk about some of the services we offer to our clients to ensure that they have these defences in place.
