Cloud and Datacenters


People vs Tech

By the year 2020, Internet of Things (IoT) is expected to comprise more than 30 billion connected devices. Such an explosion of data calls for specific skills with respect to data and analytics. But this also raises questions on how to cyber secure al this data.

Key questions:

Technology is becoming more and more complex. New technologies and solutions such as IoT and Cloud must be integrated with existing systems in order to realize efficient, effective and reliable IT solutions.

Key questions:

People are often seen as the weakest link in cyber defense. On one hand this means that a human error can cause great damage in the case of a cyber-attack. On the other, good cyber security relies on the best security specialists.

Key questions:

  • Do you know how secure your datacenter is?
  • Do you have access to the log files of your data?
  • Do you have a clear understanding of the security of your data in the cloud?
  • Do you know if your legacy systems have been exposed to a cyber-attack?
  • Do you know how cyber secure your legacy systems are?
  • Are you able to protect your legacy systems against cyber-attacks?
  • Do you have a clear understanding of the vulnerabilities in your IT landscape?
  • Do you have the skills on premise to cope with Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning?
  • Is your organization able to respond properly to a cyber-attack?

Are your existing systems resistant against cyber attacks?
