It can be a bedeviling sort of pressure on a career professional. Cyberthreats abound, and cybersecurity often seems like an overwhelming proposition.
How do you make this type of challenge seem less scary?
Here are some tips for server operations that help businesses to stay above the fray. Whether you are an executive or executive-adjacent, whether or not you have developer or engineer experience – everyone is cognizant of the challenges that businesses have today!
Accessing Streamlined Solutions
When you have better automated solution management, you have less of an attack surface for cyberattacks. Or to put that another way, you are better protected. You have more confidence that your processes are encrypted and protected from prying eyes.
Managed services fall into this category. A good managed services plan contemplates all of your security challenges through the entire data life cycle – anywhere in the cloud, and anywhere data is in transit. It helps to provide better comprehensive server management that’s going to help you sleep better at night. That also helps with meeting the standards set by outsiders, whether they are in the form of guidelines, or mandates.
Good Vendor Relations
Simply put, as a business leader, when you know more about how your vendor operates, you have more confidence.
Outsource a lot of your fears about cybersecurity to a capable third-party company. Vendors can put your concerns to rest with information about algorithm encryption, VPN tunnels, and more. Capable third-party processes can take a lot of risk and liability off of your plate. The transparency helps to verify that your data is safe, and everyone can move forward with a greater degree of confidence.
Serverless Computing or Other Alternatives
Most businesses don’t need to actually go to serverless computing to get rid of concerns about cybersecurity related to their server rooms.
Third-party hosting and related services are excellent alternatives. In other words, there are ways to protect servers and fine-tune traditional server operations.
However, serverless computing is out there where you can actually purchase server capacity without running servers in your actual facilities. And it’s something to think about, especially if you already have contracts in place from a vendor offering this type of functionality. But in the end, some good consulting can help you to uncover the best path forward. That’s where we come in.
Government and Business Resources
It also helps to read up on cybersecurity as a segment, and figure out what’s going on in the industry.
Resources like the NIST cybersecurity framework can be helpful. So can standards related to the NITTF and CNSSD directives, and things that can illustrate how government and business do cybersecurity.
Think about all of the above and get the contracts that you need to feel good about cybersecurity as it applies to your company. Let Green Olive Tree help you to beat the cyberattack blues.
