IT Companies In Denver Need To Protect Professional Associations

The latest EY Global Information Security Survey is out, and it doesn’t look good.

In surveying close to 1,200 C-level leaders of organizations based all around the world, findings show that cybercrime is becoming more threatening, while cybersecurity standards are falling:

  • 56% of organizations surveyed are concerned about the increasing impact of cyber threats on their strategies and plans
  • 87% say they require up to 50% more funding to address increased cyber threats
  • Only 12% say they are likely to detect a sophisticated cyber attack

It is for these reasons that cybersecurity should be a primary concern for IT companies in Denver and their clients. Is that the case for you?

IT Companies In Denver Need Clients That Budget More For Cybersecurity

The survey also found that, in order to protect organizations properly, there need to be more funds devoted to cybersecurity:

  • 90% of respondents saying they expect higher budgets this year
  • 87% say that they require up to 50% more funding
  • Only 12% expect to receive an increase of more than 25% this year

Are you investing enough in your cybersecurity? Given how important it is in protecting your members’ private data, it’s something you can’t ignore.

IT Companies In Denver And Their Clients Need Cybersecurity Strategy

In today’s competitive environment, businesses must rely on technology in order to compete and survive in the marketplace – all of which must be secure.

There are a number of reasons why IT security should be top of mind for IT companies in Denver and their clients going into 2020:

  • Advancing cyber threats: Techniques employed by cybercriminals are improving and your security strategies need to meet that challenge
  • Compliance: Industries are starting to adopt security standards such as NIST 800-171 which require a considerable investment to maintain
  • Insurance Costs: Cyber insurance is becoming standard in many businesses. Most insurers have a lengthy qualification form that evaluates your security posture. Your premium (or even eligibility) may depend on how well you are protected.

With IT shifting from just another piece of equipment in the office to the core of operations and a key aspect of how you defend your business, you should designate it as a central part of your budget.

This also means that you must assess and clearly define how IT aligns with your business objectives to decide what you’ll need for the coming year. Proper IT budgeting will help you lay a foundation for success for the future.

The right IT company will manage your cybersecurity, simple as that. They can put their big business cybersecurity expertise to work for you, implementing best practices, identifying vulnerabilities, and protecting you against the more common and dangerous cybercrime scams.

IT companies in Denver should be helping their clients achieve this – is yours?
