Technology

Increased cybercriminal activity following the pandemic has exposed the technology sector, leaving compliance, data, and intellectual property protection at risk.

Overview

Cyber Security in Technology

Cyber-attacks frequently target the high-tech sector. One likely answer is that these firms have extremely valuable data that could be stolen. 

As a tech industry leader, your consumers rely on your products daily, with the expectation that their security will not be compromised. They depend on you to adopt cyber security mechanisms that protect your technology and the sensitive data it handles.

Government limitations established in response to the coronavirus pandemic have pushed employees to work from home.  As a result, technology has become increasingly important in both our professional and personal life.

Despite the increased need for technology, many organisations still do not provide a “cyber-safe” remote-working environment

KEY QUESTIONS

Key security questions for tech leaders

COMPLIANCE

Cyber security compliance in the technology industry

COVID-19 accelerated digital business, but it also accelerated the trend of digital assets and employees being situated outside of traditional company infrastructure. Cybersecurity personnel are now being tasked with securing a variety of digital transformation and other new technologies.

This demands security alternatives that are flexible, agile and scalable to move forwards while remaining secure.

Gridware can assist you in enhancing your data and information security to the highest degree required to comply with local and international compliance requirements.
