According to CFO Financial News, the total ransomware costs for data recovery should exceed $20 billion in 2021.
Additionally, many small and medium-sized businesses are the most likely targets as they aren’t as secure as enterprise organizations. And, the average ransom requested for a business of this size is $5,900.
So, how can businesses of any size be more resilient and invest wisely to future-proof the business?
02:43: Organizations have become increasingly complex. The company does not have to be large in size to have complex environments to manage.
06:58: The alignment between technology and CFOs is a really good thing for technologists. Also, technology is seen as less of a cost center burden and more as an advantage.
10:15: Obligations to shareholders, customers, and employees increase the need for rigorous system audits and compliance. The intellectual property of any company is critical to its operations.
15:12: Everyone thinks they are meeting all the regulatory requirements. A system, such as Tenacity, can surface the surprises that should be fixed. Nobody wants to check all the systems from a compliance perspective.
19:00: AI components can help us humans make sense of massive datasets. And, spot anomalies in spending to mitigate future risk.
23:30: The Tenacity AI models can be trained to work with specific industries, such as healthcare. This provides better governance to ensure the correct compliance from HIPAA to ISO 27001 to NIST 800-53, and more.
26:05: We should ask ourselves, “What could I be doing to free up time?” Automation is not meant to replace humans but augment them. However, this opens up new areas to consider and shifts in business processes.
