Sweet Georgia peaches may still be ripening on the vine, but cyber threats are always in high season. That’s why we’re heading south to Atlanta in April for our next cybersecurity event for customers.
If you are like most businesses today, you have invested a lot of time and money into your IT infrastructure to become an agile business engaging in Digital Transformation. You are probably developing plans to take advantage of the latest advances in big data analytics and the Internet of Things (IoT). Cloud computing, distributed networking, and new digital tools promise to streamline and transform your business.
But these investments often come with an increased risk of cyber attack. Any device – whether a phone or an IoT module – is a potential vector of attack. And attacks are both technology problems as well as potentially a huge impact on enterprise brands.
That’s the spur for our conversation in Atlanta on April 6, 2017, but it’s really only the beginning of the discussion. CenturyLink has a wide range of security services and technologies, but we believe the most important thing we can do is work with you to figure out what you really need – because the hard truth is that you might not be able to protect everything.
Your most valuable corporate asset is your data. It is also potentially your greatest liability. By allowing customers, employees, suppliers, and partners to access information from various entry points you make your network more vulnerable. And yet, you can’t do business without that data moving around your network.
The challenge is to protect your data by identifying and removing your vulnerabilities without causing a bottleneck in accessing the information. And you need to accomplish all this within tight budget constraints. This is why CenturyLink has compiled a complete managed security solution recognized by industry analysts as among the best in the market.
But, it starts with an honest conversation about what’s important to you, who has access to your data, who really needs access to it and how we secure it.
So please join us in Atlanta on April 6th to experience some old-fashioned southern hospitality and learn from CenturyLink cybersecurity experts about protecting your most valuable assets. And don’t forget the peaches.
