Nine months after Russian forces invaded Ukraine, it’s becoming increasingly clear that the cyber front in this war is every bit as consequential as the military one. And organizations far outside the war zone can’t afford to ignore the cybersecurity lessons being taught on this brutal battlefield.

Teleworking: Information Security Essentials for Organizational Leadership

The COVID-19 pandemic forced organizations to rapidly develop and implement policies and procedures that enable their employees to work remotely. As time has passed, many companies have begun to recognize the monetary benefits associated with teleworking, including reduced utility costs as well as a decline in the need for office space, furniture, and conference rooms. Corporate management teams are now considering making telework a permanent part of their businesses. One primary concern is maintaining the security of information systems and networks and the sensitive data residing thereon.

Using Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) for secure remote capabilities

If your organization already utilizes VDI and you have enough licenses to accommodate your teleworking staff, you are ahead of the game. VDI users can be provided role-based access, giving them access to only the resources they need to perform their jobs. All of those resources remain secured inside your organization's environment or in the cloud; thus, physical security and unauthorized access concerns are reduced. VDI also uses less bandwidth and is easier for your IT staff to manage than Virtual Private Network (VPN) connections.

How an API Can Be Leveraged to Boost Sales

For an online business, it's difficult to stand out from other competitor businesses, but an API can make it possible. An API can passively spread the word about your business and give developers a reason to integrate it into client software. Once integrated, it can be a long-term revenue stream that continually generates income opportunities for the business.

Creating a new API for your business is a task that's not to be taken lightly, and it comes with a considerable upfront investment. You need a developer to create the application programming interface (API), quality assurance (QA) people to test it, and penetration testers to ensure that it meets cybersecurity standards. You might wonder if it's worth the upfront time and money investment, but APIs can increase your organization's revenue and get your brand name recognized through word-of-mouth. Even with the upfront cost, your own API can be an impressive revenue stream for your business.

Many of the biggest technology companies (like Google and Microsoft) are investing heavily in artificial intelligence (AI) technology that will someday soon reshape business. According to Fortune Magazine, companies will invest over $50 billion/year by 2023 - and artificial intelligence will add more than $13 trillion in economic growth by 2030. This massive growth in AI spending will transform the way that companies do business.

1. New Capabilities Will Get Added to Existing Job Roles

Despite all the hype about AI eliminating millions of jobs, most human jobs will be fine. For example, before 2020, AI has created 2.3 million new jobs while only eliminating 1.8 million jobs. According to experts, AI removes repetitive tasks to allow employees to focus on more productive tasks. Therefore, new roles are being created for human workers to perform that increase productivity.

2. Companies Will Hire More AI Professionals

In addition to most human jobs being safe, many businesses will have to hire more AI professionals. For example, most machine learning platforms are built and run on Python. Therefore, the demand for computer programmers with Python experience is growing. Other new job opportunities will include data analysts who can manage massive amounts of enterprise data.
