New service helps tackle unwanted financial, operational & reputational risk
Often bringing heavy financial impact, the issue of Cyber security is no longer just a concern for the IT department. Today, it’s being ushered into the boardroom and being firmly placed in front of CEOs and CFOs. Further, there are upcoming changes, to the European General Data Protection Regulation, which include fines for noncompliance. In light of this, the ICO ( Information Commissioner’s Office) is urging businesses to start taking action.
To help business leaders tackle these pressures, a new trilogy of managed IT services has been launched to provide protection against external and internal threats, as well as backup and recovery capabilities to minimise downtime and help protect against financial, operational and reputational damage. Via the Elite Group, these services are powered by leading technology vendors: Fortinet, Varonis, and Quorum.
Study finds that European CIOs are feeling the pressure more than they did five years ago. 76% of senior IT leaders surveyed by Colt in the UK, France, and Germany say that they feel more personal risk when making decisions than they did previously, due to IT’s increasingly central role in businesses.
