THE Covid-19 pandemic has created a leap in digitalisation and opportunities for small businesses.
This is the view of Director of Cable & Wireless Business/Flow Business Bradley Ramcharan at webinar hosted by his company titled Productivity + Security: Enhance your efficiency and cybersecurity.
He said, “There must be an urgent understanding that taking your business offering online means much more than simply the effective use of technology, rather, it is a new way of life, in which we all need to be prepared to participate.”
A release on Monday stated that the webinar was held in the context of the recent upsurge in cyber criminals capitalising on businesses “moving online.”
Team Lead – Sales Engineering with Flow Business Kevin Clarke said 90% of employees were now working from home, and therefore cybersecurity was critical.
He said this security was needed to protect access to client lists, customer credit card information, company banking details, pricing structure, product designs, expansion plans, and the manufacturing processes.
Clarke said protection should begin with a comprehensive approach including up-to-date software, firewall and anti-virus, Intrusion detection systems (IDS) and Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS), security event, monitoring and an incident response plan.
Flow Business has partnered with a global cybersecurity leader, Bitdefender.
Its Channel Marketing Manager Horatiu Bandoiu said that though there were many challenges that companies face today there were security solutions which address customers challenges without increasing complexity or costs.
SME Sales Manager with Flow Business Dinesha Hamilton-Bailey said Flow Business was about the SME customer’s “true evolution and transformation of their small business.”
