London Security operates out of North Texas, and because of the upcoming storm - we suspect that we (like many North Texas companies) expect to be impacted. We use a service that makes sure, even while we might be huddling up and locking down, our security still has engineers in the US - our 365 days of the year, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day we still maintain coverage. Our MDR service means we are still able to operate in a secure manner regardless of storm issues.
If 2021 taught us anything, it is the importance of being prepared in the face of a crisis or a potential risk. From everything to storms last year to the innumerable security risks facing businesses, we all had to learn how to create processes that will work in spite of ourselves - working when everything else fails.
As such, while I am hopefully still with power and warmth, I scheduled this post to go out and wish well to all of my fellow Americans who are weathering this storm and all of the weather we've seen of the past few years, and also - use it as a moment to say this is a life lesson in Cybersecurity.
There is always going to be something that messes up an otherwise perfect plan. Whether security technology failing at a key moment, or an employee with access they shouldn't have installing a piece of malware - these situations will occur. As such, it is important to remember the following thoughts when approaching both winter storms and Cybersecurity.
I will leave with this idea, hopefully while I'm sitting sipping coffee and avoiding most of the storm's issues. It is far better to find yourself with solutions to problems you planned for, rather than scrambling to find solutions when the problem is causing immediate issues.
London Security is a veteran owned business with decades of Cybersecurity experience across our team, and we are here to provide help first, and earn any dollar we are receive. We look to solving your problems and helping you plan for success in spite of failure, but we can also help out in an emergent situation to give you a process and solution to what could be an ongoing problem.
Contact us (probably after this winter storm) and we can talk to you more about what problems you might be experiencing, and hopefully point you in the direct for solutions, or provide them ourselves.
