What Can Bernard Global Do For Your Business?
Besides being overwhelmed by the pandemic, we all had to rethink the business model. Critical systems and networks were established in a matter of weeks and months versus what could have taken years.
The work from home dynamic created a whole new dilemma regardless of how advanced a business is. In the U.S., between 30-50% of the workforce is dispersed and working virtually for the foreseeable future.
Not only has the business environment changed but so have the tactics of those who could harm us.
Although it feels like we have been sprinting, we need to slow down manage this more like a marathon. Vulnerability management and risk assessments are more critical than ever. Ensuring your key assets are well protected is not only desired but expected.
