Every company needs to improve its operational efficiencies to remain competitive. As technological disruption continues to put pressure on traditional business models, it’s becoming more essential to find a unique advantage for today’s companies. While organizations may consider digital transformation as just another buzzword, it does provide companies with many opportunities to reimagine and revamp their business processes.
The amount of information an accounting firm processes every day is staggering. Incoming documents and expedited workflows make keeping track of all data a challenge for any CPA. As these firms also manage personal and financial information, it makes them uniquely susceptible to cyberattacks. Keeping in mind that the technological landscape continues to evolve, staying up to date with the latest developments in information technology isn't easy.
Even in a rapidly transforming digital world, companies still rely on their print fleet to remain productive. It’s also common for these environments to be unmanaged as many businesses only pay attention to print operations when something goes wrong. While the adage of ‘don’t fix it if it’s not broken’ may be convenient, it could be costing the company in revenues and other losses.
It may not seem self-evident, but museums also need cybersecurity just like any other public or private entity. Depending on the types of relics, treasures, and art displayed at the facility, it may require more protection than regular businesses. As these institutions usually rely on grants, donations, and other contributions, they also face budgetary pressures while needing to improve their information security on their networks and devices.
While the insides of museums may seem like ancient, dusty halls filled with knowledge, plenty is going on in the background. Museums collect information just like any other business. They sell tickets to the public, host events, manage member’s information, and keep financial records regarding donations and contributions. All of this information can be valuable in a bad actor or hacker’s hands. Therefore, taking a proactive approach to information security will be vital to running a sustainable (and socially essential) operation.
