Reality Check: You Don't Need Help From Washington To Keep Your Network Safe

After a long and tough journey, the U.S. election is finally over. In a few short months, Donald Trump will be sworn in as our 45th president.

As business leaders, we must put this divisive election behind us and look forward. Regardless of whether you are ecstatic, crying or unmoved today, all you can do is accept the inevitable and carry on with your business.

From a technology perspective, this should be easy.

Right now, the general public has many questionsTrump’s technology policies. The public is still waiting for further clarification on important issues like net neutrality, cybersecurity and broadband expansion. And in due time, clarification should come.

The truth is, though, that if you are waiting for guidance or sweeping technology reform from Washington, it’s time for a reality check.It's your responsibiltiy to keep your IT infrastructure and digital assets safe, secure, functional and cost-effective. Politicians can make laws that help or hurt your business, but don’t expect any political miracles in the near future.

Here are some sure things you can bank on:

  • In 2017, cybercrime will intensify. Nobody has the power to stop this. This issue has very little to do with our relationship with Russia. Cybercrime is a HUGE business.
  • The cybersecurity talent shortage will continue, at least for now.
  • Businesses will have to abide by the FCC’s new privacy and data security rules.  

So instead of looking to Washington for assistance with IT-related issues, consider looking to a third party managed services provider (MSP).

Your business will gain access to all of the ongoing guidance, support and technologies that are needed to weather the political transition.

It sure beats heading into 2017 alone!
