Don Wright, Marketing Manager, Kanguru Solutions

Millis, MA, USA  – The winds of change are moving across  IT departments everywhere, as Coronavirus pushes into its second year of influence on nearly every aspect of business. With the evolving remote work-from-home environment and reduction of conducting business in gathered physical spaces comes a whole new mindset for IT professionals everywhere looking to secure their organization’s data. The challenges come in many forms, including meeting the high demands of industry security regulations like GDPR, SOX and HIPAA, protecting data from breach, preventing cyberattacks, malware, viruses, employee theft/error and data loss.

Why Managing Data Is So Important

The features of KRMC cannot be overstated. KRMC ensures a rugged approach to keeping the organization’s information secure. Not only can KRMC assist IT Specialists in exceeding the high demands of industry security regulations like GDPR, HIPAA, SOX and GLBA, but can also help organizations protect their data from costly and potentially embarrassing data breaches.

The alternative to taking every precaution available to secure data could be a very long and painful process of picking up the pieces and repairing a tarnished reputation after a data breach. Organizations that have experienced large data breaches have become “Public Display #1” in the arena of discomfiture. If an organization survives the publicity and enormous fines associated with a data breach, they may still have to deal with years of working to re-establish relationships and develop new trust from clients and customers. Data is the backbone of any organization, therefore it is imperative to secure and manage data as a top priority.
