Lilly is based in Indianapolis, but it maintains offices in 18 countries around the world.  That makes collaboration difficult, especially given the long, expensive, complicated and regulation-heavy process of developing new drugs.  Working with the integrated capabilities of Microsoft 365 helped Lilly share and analyze data faster and easier, which dramatically increased productivity.

Cyber Breaches and Data Loss – August 2019

By |2019-08-14T09:31:39-07:00August 14th, 2019|Cyber Security, Industry News, IT Support & Managed IT Services|0 Comments

Despite the prevalence of malicious cyber breaches, many organizations still fail to prioritize information security. Roughly 67 percent of SMBs experienced a cyberattack last year, but 60 percent of SMBs do not have a cyberattack prevention plan in place. Meanwhile, only 9 percent of SMBs rank cyber security as a top priority, while 18 percent rate it as their lowest priority. At Capital Network Solutions, we try to close this dangerous knowledge gap by collecting and compiling news stories about cyber breaches. In this week's roundup, we look at attacks on the LAPD, the FDNY, and the largest property and casualty insurer in the country.

The latter question is a significant consideration for businesses everywhere – are you expected to leave things to manage themselves in the cloud, or do you still have to hit refresh on your hardware?

Risks and Benefits of BYOD

By |2019-08-13T14:52:11-07:00August 6th, 2019|Industry News, IT Support & Managed IT Services|0 Comments

By |2019-08-08T12:43:49-07:00July 31st, 2019|Cyber Security, Industry News, IT Support & Managed IT Services|0 Comments

According to a recent study by IBM and Sophos, U.S. data breaches cost an average of $8.19 million. That's more than double the worldwide average. The costs of a data breach are especially devastating to small businesses, but too many organizations wait to do something until it's too late. In this week's collection of cyber breach news stories from across the country, we look the Capitol One breach, as well as cyberattacks on a museum in San Francisco, a school district in Nevada and a radio station in Florida. We also provide an update on the 2017 Equifax security incident, which recently resulted in the biggest data breach fine of all time.

"Everyone deserves to be heard.  Teams has given Kabir a voice."For a student who is hard of hearing, it can be difficult to communicate in class.  That's why Esam Baboukhan, the e-learning manager at the City of Westminster College (CWC), introduced Microsoft Teams to facilitate the learning experience for every student, regardless of their ability to hear.  Since then, Esam noticed an improvement in student teamwork, especially with students that previously communicated through an interpreter.  It's just one way that the modern workplace enables effortless communication and collaboration in the cloud.
