EVER EXPERIENCED THE UPPERCUT KNOCKOUT BLOW?
An uppercut to the chin in boxing is the most devastating knockout blow. You don’t see it coming and it hits you so hard in a place you are most vulnerable… the next thing you know is you are down and out! When you finally get back on your feet, you are totally confused, you are wobbling, you are trying everything to just stay on your feet. Most times you never recover and eventually lose that fight. This is a real-life perspective for us to compare with our Cybersecurity and Business Continuity decisions. Can you prepare for that “uppercut to the chin”?
THEORY VS REALITY
Can you relate? There is the theory, and then there is reality. The reality of the effect a Cybersecurity network breach or loss of your data has on your business is quite similar to the uppercut. In a natural disaster such as a hurricane, if you are the last-minute type person, you typically have less than 3-4 business days to prepare and no time to prepare in an earthquake. You may have very good insurance policies but will they help you within the first 2-3 months of your devastation? Your teams will be so focused on their own personal family issues and the attention you will need on the critical business resources will not get the type of priority you want due to all the circumstances “outside” of your control. Are you ready for this?
A CHANGE IN THE WAY OF THINKING … DO YOU NEED ELECTRICITY TO RUN YOUR BUSINESS?
Do you even think about the electricity as optional for your business … one way or another, your business needs energy to operate and be successful. Energy is the fuel that keeps the moving parts moving and allows for the ongoing business process each day. You just don’t question it … well, the next most important asset in your business is your people and your data … without the people, you have no business and without the data, you will have no people and no business. It’s just this simple.
IMPLEMENTING THE NEW CYBER SECURE POSTURE … WHO DO YOU DEPEND ON FOR THIS?
In the same way, the insurance policy won’t bail you out in the first moments of your catastrophe. A network breach will have you stunned and thinking “what do I do next, who will do it, and how do I restore the data to get back to normal as fast as possible?” The answer to this is developing a Cybersecurity posture in advance and developing company policies around it so you are ready for that uppercut you don’t see coming.

We have basic solutions for Cybersecurity and Business Continuity from as low as US$500 per month and we can develop the roadmap your company desperately needs to be ready for the new digital economy.
