The Future of Technology in 2021 & How Your Business Can Prepare

Created at December 23, 2020

If this year has taught us anything, it’s that everything can change on a dime. Technology and cybersecurity are no exception. Technology is constantly evolving in one way or another. In a world where “adapt and survive” is becoming more of a norm, your business must have the wherewithal to keep up.

So, if you’re asking yourself, “How can I make sure that my business doesn’t fall to the wayside of a trend that is expected to continue well into 2021?” then you’ve come to the right place. Here are some ways that your business can prepare for the future of technology in the coming new year.

Cybersecurity Awareness Training

Inevitably, with a new year, come new phishing and ransomware trends that businesses will need to avoid. If you’ve ever wondered how to give your employees the tools they need to expertly identify and prevent these types of threats, cybersecurity awareness training is the answer. It’s the single best way to keep your entire team educated and alert with the knowledge they need about the current and emerging cybersecurity landscape.

Train your team, listen to your team, and work together with them to make cybersecurity awareness a natural part of your culture. Setting up a cybersecurity awareness training with Blue Layer is a great place to start. 

Ensure Strong Cybersecurity Initiatives

Your people are protected, but what about your hardware? Strong lines of defense against powerful, ill-intentioned forces require proper security measures that defend your data from the likes of malware, spyware, ransomware, phishing, and more. The threat landscape is evolving. Does your business have tools in place that are ready to defend it? If not, Managed Services from Blue Layer can help.

Protect Your Remote Employees

If current trends persist, one thing we expect to see in 2021 is a continued reliance on remote work. COVID-19 has made it open season for cybercriminals, so keeping your employees as protected as they are when they’re in the office is an important prep step. And, be sure you’re using a reliable and secure virtual meeting and Unified Communications software, like RingCentral. Empower your staff to conduct business calls and meet when they are away from the office in the same manner as when they are at their desk.

Have a Plan for Disaster Mitigation

At Blue Layer, we never like to imply that disaster will strike, but we always advocate for being prepared for the worst. If you don’t have a disaster recovery plan yet, you need one to protect your business. What better time to revisit your data loss disaster recovery plans than the beginning of a new year?
