Mobile Mentor and Zero Trust: a modern workplace methodology
The biggest challenge for organisations today revolves around avoiding a data breach. Recent events in Australia - Optus, the second largest telecommunications company in the country, had identifying details of up to 9.8 million customers stolen from their database - only serve to highlight the importance of protecting your customer data.
In our complex world of hybrid work and BYO technology, how do organisations maintain security? Mobile Mentor’s CEO Daniel McCarthy and Head of Sales, NZ Jared Pedersen share how the pandemic has accelerated the practice of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) when onboarding new employees and how working from home has presented major challenges to keeping business data secure.
They demystify the methodology of Zero Trust and outline how tools organisations may already have, such as Microsoft 365 E3 and E5 licences, can build a Zero Trust architecture that works. For a regular dose of Mobile Mentor thought leadership, sign up to their regular newsletter.

Companies need to provide that empowerment, but they also need to protect vital IT assets.

Compliance and Vulnerability
Cloud compliance is the general principle that cloud-delivered systems must be compliant with standards that the cloud customers face. Essentially, cloud customers need to look at the effective security provisions of their vendors the same way they would look at their own internal security. They will need to figure out whether their cloud vendor services match the compliance that they need. There are several ways to go about this. In some cases, companies can just look for vendors that certify compliance, and choose their services without any further input. However, sometimes clients may need to actually get involved in accessing the cloud vendor's security, to make sure that it complies with the industry standards and regulations.
