Digital innovation (DI) initiatives are designed to improve a company’s efficiency and customer experience. However, this is often accomplished by deploying new systems and solutions, including Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices, mobile devices, cloud computing, and new branch locations. These create additional security and operational complexities that open up an organization to new cyber risks.

As digital attack surfaces expand and the cyber-threat landscape evolves, security teams commonly attempt to address new risks through deployment of point security products. However, the additional complexity associated with monitoring and managing these point solutions, exacerbated by new data protection regulations, leaves security teams unprepared to protect the organization against cyber threats.

Software-defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN) is rapidly replacing traditional WAN for remote office and branch deployments. While SD-WAN offers performance benefits that support new digital innovations, many SD-WAN solutions lack consolidated networking and security features. In response, many network leaders have had to add a complex assortment of tools and solutions to manage and protect their SD-WAN deployments. Instead, they need a simplified approach to contain costs, improve efficiency, and reduce risks. FortiGate Secure SD-WAN addresses each of these requirements, combining next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) with integrated solutions for management and analytics to centralize and simplify SD-WAN operations.

Managing voice communications has become increasingly challenging as corporate offices have become more geographically distributed, employees have begun working remotely or using mobile devices, and more and more businesses have adopted a bring-your-own-device policy. Legacy communications technologies supported by onsite network engineering and operations staff have difficulty supporting these environments. Many are also left unprotected against fraudsters and intruders. That is why Fortinet offers a scalable, comprehensive voice communications solution.

Organizations face a number of different potential emergency situations, such as illness, flood, hurricanes, and power outages. Implementing a business continuity plan is essential to ensuring that the organization is capable of maintaining operations in the face of adversity and preparing for potential disasters.

An important consideration for organizations developing a business continuity plan is that the organization may not be capable of sustaining normal operations onsite. The ability to support employees working remotely is essential to ensuring both business continuity and security. Fortinet solutions offer an integrated solution to support telework. FortiGate next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) have built-in support for IPsec virtual private networks (VPNs), enabling remote workers to connect securely to the company network. With endpoint protection, provided by FortiClient, and multi-factor authentication (MFA) with FortiAuthenticator, organizations can securely support remote work and maintain business continuity.

The coronavirus has forced millions of corporate and government employees to work from home, and has created challenges for many companies that did not plan effectively for a majority-remote workforce. In order to maintain productivity, companies not only need a fast adoption of communications tools to ensure business continuity but they also need to help remote employees deal with the new way of working—securely

After reading this paper, nonprofit leaders will be better able to articulate the importance of cybersecurity and privacy to their key stakeholders, and to communicate how a robust cybersecurity and data protection strategy will ultimately help the individuals and communities nonprofits serve. And they will have a well-marked path to help them move towards the development and implementation of that strategy—to better protect the nonprofit, its staff, its donors, and ultimately the beneficiaries they all seek to serve.

The ability to rapidly transition an organization’s workforce to telework is an essential component of a business continuity plan. However, remote workers create additional security requirements and different security challenges than on-site employees. Remote workers often connect to the enterprise network over insecure or untrusted networks, potentially enabling eavesdropping, and use devices in insecure areas, where they may be lost or stolen. Advanced users may have requirements that cannot be met by a standard virtual private network (VPN) client.

Beyond these basic requirements, teleworkers may use untrusted devices to access company resources and are more likely to fall prey to social engineering during a crisis, creating more security risks. Additionally, these employees must be able to access cloud-based resources without significant network latency. It’s for these more advanced requirements that basic security controls won’t offer adequate security for a majority-remote workforce.

As part of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the Privacy Rule assures that individuals’ health information is properly protected, while allowing the flow of health information needed to provide high-quality healthcare and protect the public’s health and well-being. Knowing the latest regulations and mandates and how they may impact you will help keep you safe.
