Microsoft: Digital transformation doesn’t make SMEs immune to cyber threats

microsoft: digital transformation doesn’t make smes immune to cyber threats

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

In April 2020 Microsoft’s CEO Satya Nadella declared that the world went through two years of digital transformation in just two short months as businesses and individuals pivoted towards a technology-based working environment from home.In the months following, online threats have stirred up new opportunities from COVID-19-themed attacks to distributed denial of service (DDoS) and ransomware attacks.

Microsoft Asia Pacific vice president of sales, marketing and operations, Ricky Kapur, warns that despite digital transformation every business is at risk – no matter how large or small they are.

DDoS attacks have increased, and entire networks have been ransomed in less than 45 minutes. Yet, says Kapur, a large percentage of businesses in Asia Pacific face the same common security problems that have existed for years – namely, they don’t know how to protect their companies, they don’t have proper security, and they don’t have the IT staff to correct these oversights.

Microsoft also points to a 2019 Hiscox Cyber Readiness report that states the mean cost of cyber incidents averaged US$14,000 for businesses with fewer than 50 employees; $184,000 for those with fewer than 250 employees, $715,000 for those with fewer than 1000 employees, and $551,000 for those with more than 1000 employees.

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

LONDON, Oct. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Windward, the Predictive Intelligence company applying AI to transform global maritime trade, announced today that it has in place partnerships with a number of leading organizations in the maritime field including four major shipping companies – Norden, Eastern Pacific Shipping, Capital Ship Management, Interunity Management Corporation (IMC) – as well as seven Protection and Indemnity (P&I) Clubs, highlighting a paradigm shift towards adopting AI to drive digital transformation in the shipping industry. Windward is providing these companies with its proprietary AI-powered Predictive Intelligence platform, enabling comprehensive industry compliance and optimizing transparency and best business practices amongst its new partners.
The maritime industry is under increased focus regarding sanctions and compliance per recent advisories from the Office of Financial Sanctions Implementation (OFSI) in the UK and the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) in the US. Traditional list matching approaches alone can no longer address the requirements of OFAC so maritime stakeholders are now looking beyond legacy systems to AI-powered solutions in order to navigate the opaque nature of the latest advisories.
With this new reality, the wider industry is adopting technological and AI driven frameworks in order to have a scalable digital platform to make smarter business …

TipRanks3 High-Yield Dividend Stocks Offering at Least 8%; Analysts Say ‘Buy’America goes to the polls on Tuesday (well, actually, America has been early voting for a few weeks, now), and while Democrat Joe Biden has a solid lead in the polls, there is some of evidence that President Trump may still win a second term. Finally, with all of the early voting, mass absentee ballots, and possible extended counting deadlines, we might not know on Tuesday night who the winner is.It’s a situation made of uncertainty, and financial markets don’t like that. Which brings us to dividend stocks. Investors want a pad, something to protect their portfolio in case of a market drop, and dividends offer just that. These profit-sharing payments to stockholders provide a steady income stream, that typically stays reliable even in a modest downturn. Wall Street’s analysts have been doing some of the footwork for us, pinpointing dividend-paying stocks that have kept up high yields, at least 8% to be exact. Opening up the TipRanks database, we examine the details behind those payments to find out what else makes these stocks compelling buys.Altria Group, Inc. (MO)We’ll start with Altria Group, the …

A study by IFS reveals how enterprises might be overlooking the importance of people in executing impactful digital transformation
The company urges “continuous dialogue” with individuals across departments throughout the process 

The human factor is widely recognized as an essential component of digital transformation success. 
In fact, over a quarter (27%) of companies acknowledge that despite being key, people are often overlooked when planning and executing transformative projects, according to a research study from global enterprise applications company IFS.

The study goes on to identify poor change management as one of the key reasons digital transformation projects fail. 
When implementing new digital transformation projects, businesses are focused on investing in and implementing the key technology and solutions but aren’t considering the importance of staff buy-in and acceptance of the project, which is intrinsically linked to its overall success.
When asked about the reasons for failure in past projects, businesses also cited a lack of employee engagement among the top four reasons. In addition, respondents named past experiences of low employee buy-in as one of the …

The Digital Transformation Virtual Summit 2020 brought together an exciting range of speakers from across the tech industry to share their views on how the world is adapting to digital technologies.
If there has been one lesson from this year, it is that business as usual is no longer viable. Even before the coronavirus outbreak, the growing use of digital technologies meant a radical rethink of organisations and strategies was necessary, both to ensure new technology was properly utilised and that no group was left behind.
Covid-19 has forced companies to deliver digital strategies on a far shorter schedule than they planned, delegates heard, while customer bases and audiences have also evolved.
As such, organisations that understand the ever-changing needs of people and the opportunities offered by new technology will likely prove the most successful.
