In a world that is full of innovation, businesses will be able to solve the challenges of becoming a leader in their new offices to bring new technologies to their productivity and their efficiency. However, they must not forget that the news must be submitted so as not to jeopardize the security of the company and business partners. So Canon experts have prepared 5 rules for healthy cyber security.
"New technologies support more and more flexibility and connectivity to workers and non-institutional organizations. People are already working together across continents and today's timescales. However, key security continues, and it must be ensured that companies will not lose their stability in the world of future changing work, "said Jan Všetička, Canon CZ Product Development Developer. It has become a guide for companies in the digital world, and is developing visions and insights from other professionals in the Future Office.
Digital protection is already becoming called global and globalized goods. Although the global cyber security market is worth $ 3.5 billion in 2004, it is currently estimated to be more than $ 120 billion. So obviously, although future offices bring more flexibility, speed, efficiency and time savings, threats are also becoming stronger and more complex.
Why are the offices of the future increasingly vulnerable? "With persistent digitization, all companies are naturally less resistant to virtual security risks. The way of work will depend on a permanent and human digital connection between suppliers, partners and customers. many cyber threats, and potential carriers are not just local subjects, but they can be easy for people and organizations from around the world, "reminiscent Jan Všetička.
All sensitive data, connectivity and automation offer far more opportunities for hackers. The "area area" that is open to cyber attacks increases. By making information systems an integral part of day-to-day professional activities, potential potential and potential damage can be exacerbated, which can only be a safety event.
Fortunately, companies can take a number of steps to secure resilience and future office security. Not only is the worst expectation, but also the creation of preventive measures as part of the appropriate "cyber hygiene":
- Companies should create a special security team and be included in strategic measures. The latest data collected by the European Commission shows that only one of the three companies in the EU has a clear security strategy for ICT. In addition, security strategies are much more common for large companies than for smaller ones that use it up to three times less often.
- Employees should be part of the answer. Engaging employees to take part in the results can be one of the most reliable steps that can be taken. Gartner, an advisor, found that giving others the opportunity to become part of risk management in the basics increases success. Employees easily forget that minor failures even increase vulnerability. The Code42 survey, published in this year's Data Disclosure Report, also indicates that this is not just a problem for junior workers. Up to 59% of CEOs have admitted to download software that does not know about corporate security.
- Be sure to protect your customers. Due to future offices, companies should help their clients understand how they can protect themselves not only of legal problems. With the introduction of GDPR, it is even more important to ensure customers comply. Organizations should seek to understand the effects of new and new legislation to help clients cope properly
- Think beyond the business. Companies can improve their awareness of security issues by working with their partners, sellers and other third parties to share information, products and services related to cyber security. This will allow them to manage more effectively. Cyber crime is dangerous enough because it is constantly changing and developing – its offenders are ambitious and constantly improving.
- Notify the cyber attack. Cyber-racing businesses are rarely willing to share information or cooperate with others. According to the Sapio Research report for 2018, 84% of respondents would like to hear from the company they are working together for a potential cyberwar attack. But only 37% of them said they would provide such information should their own company data be broken. Insufficient sharing is not an appropriate way. Groups that include representatives from different organizations to analyze threats and consulting potential solutions are a much better option if organizations are facing an increasing number of threats.
"But it does not need to be thought that future offices in themselves cause an automatic security problem. On the other hand, innovative technical solutions in the office can be stimulating economic change, growth and prosperity," ends Jan Všetička, Product Business Developer
