Working remotely is not a trend, it is the future. But in exchange for eliminating 2-way rush hour traffic, cost of parking and the expense of the cubicle environment, this generation of computer users need to embrace the complexities of data security to protect their organization across an even wider geographical area. As we have seen after the launch of GDPR in 2018, an increase in ISO 27001 cybersecurity certifications worldwide. The cyberattacks on the US are resulting in the government requiring NIST compliance. Nothing is going to change this fact. In 2018, the DoD required their Supply Chain to comply with the NIST 800-171 CSF. Also, in recent years, Ohio and almost 75% of the states in the US have adopted the NIST standard as their CSF. And the change is happening in every industry. Therefore, what should you do today?
Your team needs to embrace the NIST CSF and the Zero Trust Security Model. You need to enforce compliance in your organization’s supply chain. You need to run secure remote operations. What is not going to float is an excuse that not a single person in your organization is savvy enough to create and enforce a process to run secure remote operations. That your organization does not have the funds after eliminating the office space and overhead. The biggest challenge is for your family members to practice cyber hygiene now that your home is your workplace. The NIST standard can be trained in your organization and your business can operate with every employee working remotely.
There are two things to learn today. 1- TechR2 is ISO, and NIST certified. 2 – TechR2 is ISO 31000 certified to conduct Risk Assessments. Today, cybersecurity requires quality assessments and working with certified partners. TechR2 is that company.
