How we work has dramatically changed, probably forever.
Nexon Asia Pacific, together with Fortinet, investigates the journey organisations are taking in the new business environment. There are four critical stages of business recovery that come after the original triage and survival that we've seen.
Organisations review their changed infrastructure, particularly IT security. They work to stabilise and reset IT security to remove any gaps created during the first phase. Cloud migration of enterprise applications begin to accelerate.
Businesses pivot to create new solutions to service new markets to stay viable. IT infrastructure and security adapts quickly to keep up and seeks to support innovation, not limit it.
Organisations move quickly to gain market share with their updated offerings. Minimum viable products and services are put in market. IT infrastructure is bursting at the seams and I.T. security is only just staying ahead of business growth and change.
The growth curve stabilises and operational focus shifts to process efficiency and profit generation to better support a stable, more predictable organisation with a focus on customers. IT security stabilises again, and the focus shifts to deepening defences and more planned programs.
NEXON ASIA PACIFIC HAS DEVELOPED WHITEPAPERS ON THESE STAGES OF
BUSINESS RECOVERY FROM CONSOLIDATION AND STABILISATION ONWARDS. AS WE
REACH EACH STAGE, DIFFERENT DEMANDS ON IT SECURITY INFRASTRUCTURE AND APPLICATIONS WILL BE REALISED.
Organisations must: ensure workers have up-to-date cybersecurity training; identify and mitigate security exposures in the home office environment; and ensure communication lines are kept open.
Business processes need to be consolidated and streamlined through the use of secure cloud services to manage information. This should be supported by a scalable, web application firewall with machine learning, and encryption and multifactor authentication to protect the integrity of data and applications.
Now is the time for organisations to review and update legacy systems to reduce fixed costs, while delivering greater scalability and better security to build a more resilient organisation. It’s important to focus on technology solutions that help the organisation pivot during rapid market change.
