How to Improve Digital Security in the Workplace – Part 5: Collaborate With Experienced Experts

Finding it challenging to keep your business secure online? You’re not alone. When it comes to cybersecurity, there’s a lot to think about. Luckily, there are some great experts available to help you out. 

Staying on top of digital security, and remaining one step ahead of hackers and online criminals is not always easy. If it was, vulnerabilities simply wouldn’t exist! And right now, at a time when so many people are focusing on recovering and strengthening their core business following the disruption of the past few years, it’s natural that things like digital security will pose a bit of a challenge. 

But you don’t have to face this challenge alone. 

By working closely with an IT and technology partner that specialises in helping businesses to improve digital security in the workplace, managing online risks can become much easier. 

In this final part of our ‘How to Improve Digital Risk’ series, we’re exploring how collaborating with experienced experts can help organisations to build more robust strategies for cybersecurity. 

What can an IT partner do?

By collaborating with digital security experts, you can give yourself and your employees peace of mind that you’re operating in a way that keeps everyone – and every data set – as safe as possible.

The right partner will be able to…

  • Identify the unique risks that exist within your industry
  • Help you understand what you’re doing right when it comes to digital security
  • Highlight vulnerabilities and show you where there’s room for improvement
  • Uncover the main challenges and obstacles standing in the way of protecting your business

Ultimately, there are two main benefits to collaborating with experts:

1. Risk mitigation

Working with security professionals ensures you’re taking the right actions – at the right time – to mitigate your risk, and keep your people and your data secure. Of course, cyber risks will always exist. But with advice, guidance, recommendations, and support from the right people, businesses can minimise this risk, work with greater confidence, and know they’re taking the right steps. 

2. Investment optimisation

One of the main advantages of working with experienced experts is just that: experience. Having worked with many organisations over the years, they have first-hand knowledge of which approaches and technologies deliver results, and which don’t. This ensures you’re investing in tech that brings real value to your organisation, and skipping those technologies that over-promise and under-deliver. 

Everyone needs a helping hand. Even us!

We’re not ashamed to admit that we seek out our own professional partnerships, proudly collaborating with incredible organisations that are brilliantly equipped to help us support our clients. In fact, one of our key partners is security awareness training leader KnowBe4, who form the focus of our upcoming blog series on phishing. So keep your eyes peeled to learn more about them!
