The Cyber Threat

Security is one of the formidable areas organizations must focus on in this current economic climate. With more and more remote workplaces coming into existence, the infrastructure must support and meet the demand of remote offices. According to Gartner, the global information security market is expected to reach USD 170.4 billion in 2022. Organizations that are not proactive about improving their security vulnerabilities are predisposed to data, passwords, malware, and phishing attacks. Evidently, RiskBased reported that 36 billion records were exposed due to data breaches in the first two quarters of 2020. This goes to show that it is imperative to perform regular threat checks, including perusing data for unusual activity or changes in access patterns. Experts recommend weekly, monthly, or quarterly checks to keep hackers at bay.

The landscape of cybersecurity is now under a microscope as close to 68% of business leaders expressed concern over data security. And rightly so. It is observed that one of the important reasons for breach of security is human error. Out-of-date systems and lack of robust security plans while implementing third-party applications leave organizations with fragile firewalls and security systems. With more fragmented point solutions coming into existence, organizations now understand the need to move from firefighting mode to a proactive mode. Catering to this need, Microsoft offers Microsoft 365 that unites productivity and security.
