Understanding the output compared to your input within cyber security

You have brought your cyber security licences and discussed how you need to protect your organisation. Everything has been implemented, you have your logins, and your team has been briefed on what you have done and the platform you have chosen. 

And then, nothing!

A tumbleweed goes past in terms of your cyber security protocols, and the conversation fades from your agenda.

Why do organisations become disenchanted with their cyber security?

There are a few things at play here, from not being able to see a tangible output, to not understanding how they can implement it and use it for example. Cyber security is an enigma sometimes, and this can cause issues within organisations when trying to keep it high on the agenda and at the forefront of everyone's mind.

You may have heard during a budget meeting, what are we even paying for? When it comes to reviewing cyber security costs and implementation. This is a story we hear all the time, but we want you to remember why you implemented those processes and platforms in the first place! They gave you the opportunity to protect those core assets and data that allow your business to thrive, and you wanted to protect your client's information for example.

The other thing that can make you feel a little meh about your cyber security platforms and investment is that when it is working you may receive little to no reminder that it is there, protecting you daily against threats on the horizon. This low output is a good thing! But as humans, we like to be reminded about what is going on or we can become a little forgetful. We get it, it seems like there is a perception of low risk which again makes you question why you invested so much, or why it should be held as a high priority.

Why are we bringing this up?

We know we sound like a broken record… but we want you to get the most out of your investment and to be the most fortified against emerging threats. It is our mission to make bespoke cybersecurity solutions that allow your organisation to thrive without the fear of a data breach.

We have a great example for you that highlights how some of our solutions, when used correctly and implemented into standard business practices really make a difference, but you need to make them a priority (yep, you need to put some work in too!)

At Core to Cloud we offer an amazing interactive cyber security training platform called Immersive Labs. This is a total game changer when it comes to discovering and enhancing how businesses approach a cyber security threat and ensuring that everyone knows their role and what they need to do to protect their organisation.

This interactive platform simulates threats and breaches to allow your team to really get stuck in and develop their understanding of cyber security and how to protect their data and core assets. It has a user-friendly platform and is quick to deploy removing the time-consuming tabletop role-plays that are now a relic of the past. People are the linchpin of your business, and they all need to be invested and have adequate training on their role within a cyber security attack to minimise the impact on your organisation and your ability to bounce back.

Sounds amazing, doesn’t it?

You hear about it, you decide this is exactly what you need, you invest in the implementation and purchase the licences for the platform…. and then…. it gathers dust in your tech stack.

This is where many organisations are missing the purpose of such a powerful tool. As organisations, we need to internally place cyber security within our agenda, and it needs to be revisited regularly to really see the impact of these powerful platforms. You need to use it, understand it, and make it a part of your normal business rhetoric.

If you and your team don’t make the conscious effort to make these types of changes then these powerful tools and platforms are not able to do it all by themselves. You invested because you recognised the potential and the need for such a training tool and experience for your team, you know that it is what is necessary, so let's get it implemented and let’s get your team using it. 

If you are ready to make sure you are optimising your cyber security spend and to check that you are doing everything you can to ensure your organisation's safety, we have got your back. Connect with one of our team members here.
