In this blog, we’ll talk about what strategies you need to implement in 2019, so that you can safely ring in the new year.

Solidify Your Data Protection

It doesn’t make a difference what data you’re protecting—you need to make sure that you’re working with a solid, consolidated security system that accounts for the data across your entire network. Find a provider that allows you to work with some flexibility (i.e. enable remote access or work collaboratively with onsite employees), while still keeping your data secure.

Implement A Security Protocol

How concrete is your risk management strategy? Mitigating risk for your team is absolutely crucial for nullifying threats before they take a stranglehold over your network. The easiest way to make sure everyone is on the same page is to update your security policy, before educating your team on the nuances they need to be aware of. Keeping your staff informed and prepared for what to expect (as well as what steps they need to take to avoid a disaster) is crucial for avoiding downtime, keeping your network safe, and maintaining a reliably low ongoing technology budget.

Update (And Maintain) Compliance

From finance to healthcare, every industry has specific regulations that you need to adhere to in order to avoid heavy fines. There are specific steps that you need to take to steer clear of compromising both your clients’ information, as well as your own private data. Failing to maintain compliance can result in costly fines, copious downtime, and several other issues that can derail progress. Hi-Tek’s managed security services allow your team the freedom to work more efficiently than ever before, without having to worry about whether or not your security is operating up to modern compliance standards for your industry.
