With today’s modern technology, data security has become a huge concern. This is why Firefish came to us for help in improving their cybersecurity and file management issues. They needed to ensure that their data is secured and located more easily, especially with them having legally sensitive clients.
Familiarization with cybersecurity and IT, in general, is also one of their concerns. They need more data protection awareness training with their growing team. Another risk factor is that they work in a co-working space, they need all their technology secured to ensure the safety of their client’s privacy. GDPR compliance is another thing that they need to take care of since they have an EU office where all their finances are being handled.
Solution / Process
In order to get a better understanding of their current IT setup and needs, we jumped in and did our Needs Assessment. This helped us build an efficient plan specifically addressing all their concerns surrounding their IT environment as well as any potential risks to their cybersecurity.
Putting our years of experience and knowledge to work, we were able to build a secure IT environment for them. Some of the things we implemented are:
- Multi-factor authentication
- Antivirus implementation
- Mobile device management
- Phishing campaign
- Cisco Umbrella DNS Protection
- Data loss prevention
With Contango Unlimited implemented in their company’s IT environment, they can sleep better at night knowing that their data is secured and in compliance. These solutions are only some of the steps we took to ensure Firefish’s cybersecurity. Contango Unlimited also gives them compliance check-ins and a VCIO that hosts a Periodic Business Review for them to be up to date with the changes and upgrades done within their IT environment. With Contango, they can focus on growing their business knowing their data is secured and well taken care of.
