From sophisticated ransomware and phishing schemes, to increased compliance and GDPR challenges. Avast recently asked their partners, including TechSolvers of course, to share their thoughts.
Avast were interested in knowing what their partners thought would be the major security concerns in 2018. With their drive to make security a core element of the Managed Workplace service portfolio, knowing what their partners wanted in this area made total sense. It’s that kind of thinking that means we will be working with them for many years to come.
The feedback they received can all be seen here on the Avast website.
Of course if you are only interested in the words of Phil Long, and why wouldn’t you be 😉 you can skip the link as we have reposted his two top security predictions for 2018 below;
- GDPR is going to have a big impact on UK businesses. We’re already getting requests from our TechSolvers clients for specific services such as email encryption to prepare for this. For IT companies, this will also present another big challenge to manage. We are all waiting to see what will be ratified and signed, what this will look like, and what the requirements will be.
- Security patching will continue to be the way forward and we see this as half the battle for the IT guy.
Phil did have a few more comments than just these two, and we may try to persuade him to post the full list. For now though, if you are looking for more, why not give us a call to discuss prioritizing security in your business.
