Thanks in large part to the proliferation of enterprise collaboration tools, organizations today face a new work paradigm. These tools, coupled with other advances in technology, have made collaboration and communication easier. Simultaneously, data is now more accessible and available to more people, and more easily shared — both inside and outside of an organization — than ever before.
At the same time, one just needs to look at any news feed to see that IT leaders and other business leaders responsible for security and compliance are facing increased scrutiny around data security and privacy, as well as a greater demand for the ability to demonstrate compliance and adherence to new regulatory issues.
These changes create competing forces in an organization. People need visibility into and access to the data and information they need to get their work done, without compromising data security or regulatory compliance.

Yet security and privacy remains the top concern for CIOs going into 2017. This doesn’t mean that CIOs should rethink their strategy, but it does reflect the need for thorough vetting of security for any cloud services or solutions IT buyers plan to add to their portfolio.

As more and more of our daily lives take place online, it’s only natural that we’ve become more accustomed to sharing personal, sensitive, information online. Email communication is a constant part of our daily communication – and unfortunately is also a common tool used by hackers to attempt to gain access to your sensitive information in a scheme known as phishing.

As you head into a new year resolute with new intentions, we’d like you to add a renewed commitment to online security to your list. Here’s some helpful information about phishing – and how to keep yourself safe.
