LEADERSHIP LESSONS

  • Innovation is at the heart of taking risks for enterprises today. However, taking risks to foster greater innovation is not enough, and it is equally critical to eliminate unnecessary risks that can distract the business from its growth journey.

  • The need for visibility into Microsoft Teams service availability and delivery quality has led to the rise in interest in monitoring Microsoft 365 and Teams services from the user perspective.

  • IT security has seen a huge overhaul in recent years. Where strategies had previously been focused on creating a secure perimeter to keep threats out of the network, this model has become increasingly irrelevant. Between accelerated cloud migration and remote working trends, most organizations now operate with a more porous perimeter in which critical assets and users are spread far and wide beyond the old boundaries.

  • Why Security Awareness Training Is An Essential Part Of Your Security Strategy

    Every year, millions of people fall victim to cybercrime. Hackers and criminals prey on their victims using a wide variety of elaborate techniques such as phishing emails, ransomware attacks, and phony web pages, among others. In fact, scams that have plagued society for centuries only continue to grow in size, sophistication, and complexity. For instance, the well-known Nigerian email hoax has roots from a common “Spanish Prisoner” scam that dates back more than 100 years. In this type of primitive “advanced fee scam,” the fraudster requests cash in return for a large commission which, of course, is never delivered.
