What Makes a Security Plan?

      Hello, and welcome back to my blog. This week, I would like to quickly discuss the levels that go into making a security plan. These types of plans are an important tool for IT departments and Cybersecurity Administrators to design a plan that will help protect or slow down an attack on the network.     Of course, security plans can vary from company to company; however, their purpose remains the same, with threats looming every day. With IT managers adjusting in response to the ever-changing threats, the created security plan must be designed to stop or slow down any attempt to breach network defenses. Below we will look at the principal components of a security plan and what they entail.    Separate Networks              As the name suggests, having more than one network can protect company assists from hackers and the like. The reason being is that having every computer on one network would lead to issues if that subsequent work were to fail, which would stop operati

Outsourcing vs. Cloud Computing, a quick look

 This week we will discuss an exciting topic of outsourcing and cloud computing. 

 To understand what the two are, let’s look at both and how they benefit or hinder a company. 

 Outsourcing, as we come to know it, is the method where a company hires a third-party provider who then performs a specific task or function on behalf and for the benefit of a business. This method can perform functions that cloud computing cannot do or does not execute. 

 Cloud computing is the practice of using a network of remote servers that are hosted over the internet to manage, store, and process data, rather than doing so on a local server or a personal computer. 

 

                                         *Cloud computing is not the same as outsourcing*

 The difference between the two is that cloud computing can do computing between different machines at different locations and combine the data from one application to another. 

While outsourcing is where a business hires someone to do a specific task at a set price.

 There are pros and cons to both methods, which are:

 

Outsourcing

                       Pros: 

                                   You contract an outside vendor that can perform tasks, Have access to a large talent pool, Lower labor costs.

 

                       Cons: 

                                   Lack of Control, Communication Issues, Problems with Quality, Impact on Company Culture, Risk of Vendor Lock-In.

 

Cloud Computing

 

                       Pros: 

                                   Cost-Efficient, Scalability, Backup, and Recovery, Automatic Software Integration, Easy Access to Information, Quick Deployment.

 

                       Cons:

                                   Technical Issues, Security in the Cloud, Prone to Attack, Risk of Vendor Lock-in.

                                   

 As you can tell, both methods bring different things to the table for any business looking to cut costs or increase productivity. It all comes down to what line of business is being done by that company. These methods can also be used together or separately to fit the company needs better. 

 So, with that, I ask you. What is your experience with outsourcing and cloud computing? How did it affect you and your business? Did you find it a smooth transition, or was it challenging to get everything in order?  

 Please, leave a comment below with your thoughts and let me know if I left anything out. 

 Until next week!
