Cybersecurity incidents continue to grow, both in scope and in the variety of institutions that are targeted, from government networks and Fortune 500 companies to smaller businesses with limited defensive infrastructure and tech budgets. So, the resources that these organizations do have must be put to exceptionally good use. IBM reported that the average cost of a data breach now stands at $3.92 million. In addition, the public relations fallout of a data breach can cause serious injury to a business's brand. One awful incident could be enough to sink a company. If you don't have the resources or staff on hand to run your own dedicated onsite security operations center (SOC), what are you to do? Fortunately, the growth of subscription-based, outsourced SOC-as-a-Service solutions brings more comprehensive cybersecurity within the price range of small and medium-sized businesses. Standard SOC-as-a-Service package The central benefit of using SOC-as-a-Service over an onsite team is that the price...

You shouldn't wait until disaster strikes to start thinking about disaster recovery. In case you're unfamiliar, the collective set of standards, procedures, and policies that help an organization's IT infrastructure bounce back after a catastrophic incident are known as disaster recovery. Threats range from natural disasters that could harm physical hardware to problems with personnel and the malicious actions of outside parties. DR is closely related to the concept of business continuity (BC) planning. BC is how the business prepares to keep operations running in the face of disruption, while DR is is how the business responds to disaster scenarios by restoring data and getting systems back online. Though they're often confused, and they do overlap, these two sets of standards are distinct. What is the importance of DR testing? If you already have a DR plan in place, you can't just trust that people and systems will act how you intend them to once...

Fresh off of last year's much-discussed all-woman spacewalk, we're looking toward the 2020s as a decade in which women will continue to shoot for the stars. Overall, however, the tech field has some significant catching up to do. While technological advances over the last several years have reshaped the way we live and work, the world of science an We're all worse off when women are underrepresented in the tech world. A dearth of women science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) positions can stifle the ambitions of girls in future generations while limiting the diversity of perspectives that currently shape innovation in technological spaces. Here's how we can all work together to shape the next decade into one that includes more women in STEM roles. Inspiration and education The spacewalk is just the beginning. True inspiration outlasts temporary spectacle, and women need to see real role models recognized for their contributions to science and technology. For instance, NASA...

The continued popularity of web-based applications and cloud computing has led to a proliferation of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions, limiting the need for businesses to retain a large store of on-premises hardware. While you may have already shifted some of your tech needs to SaaS models, you might still house your backup and recovery solutions in house. If that's the case, consider the advantages of Backup-and-Recovery-as-a-Service (BRaaS). Here's how to determine if BRaaS is a good fit for your needs: 1. You're spending too much for on-site backup and recovery. Gartner predicted that worldwide IT spending would come to $3.9 trillion this year, and that we're likely to cross the $4 trillion threshold next year. Hand in hand with growing IT spending, many businesses find themselves processing and storing vast amounts of business-critical data these days. The cost of housing and maintaining on-premises hardware and simultaneously managing your own data and backup recovery processes can add up....
