What does NYACP think of us?

Posted on Updated on

ITG remains committed to their clients day in and day out. Whenever you need someone, you know who to call. Mike and the ITG team care so much about the clients that they want to spread the word. Although it may be strange if Mike stood on a rooftop yelling about all the ways they can help someone, we figured the clients could tell you best. We recently interviewed Linda from NYACP, New York Chapter American College of Physicians, to get her take on ITG and to find out more about what she does!

NYACP is a not-for-profit professional service organization providing education, NYACPadvocacy and quality improvement/practice management for 12,000 internal medicine physicians in New York state. Linda loves that her work focuses on improving healthcare and helping members achieve success in the ever-changing practice environment.

In a world of such uncertainty and change, wouldn’t you want to feel that passion? Every business will suffer from technological issues, updates and threats to operations by viruses and other intrusions. Lucky for Linda, her limited IT experience was in hiring the right consultant.  She has better peace of mind within the company since working with ITG. She has been able to learn more about technology as her business grew and came to better understand the impact of technology and interoperability. This allows her to feel more comfortable with her entire IT infrastructure allowing her to focus more on management and operations.

 

She was first introduced to ITG by word of mouth from colleagues. After interviewing others and assessing the best choice, Linda chose ITG because of their experience and local reach. She has not been disappointed, and its been years working together! When asked what the process is like to work with ITG she said: “They are a sound, reliable partner, they respond to our needs expeditiously and completely.” She considers the ability to ask questions and get “helpful, meaningful information in easy to understand language (and Diagrams!!!)” to be the best value for a busy executive.24009d004811274573e0ea87c61afa4c.png

Did you Know……….

  • Her favorite part of working with ITG is “the staff, the reliability of their recommendations and their service”!
  • There are laws and regulations in place that require companies to take measures to prevent data breaches and other attacks.

You too can have the peace of mind in your day to day life by partnering with a company that cares about your business, answers questions and immediately responds to concerns. Reach out to ITG today and speak with the team about how they can help!

 

Here’s what keeps your CISO up at night

As seen on February 14th, 2018 on Helpnetsecurity.

89.1 percent of all information security leaders are concerned about the rise of digital threats they are experiencing across web, social and mobile channels, according to the 2018 CISO Survey by RiskIQ.

Some 1,691 U.S. and U.K. information security leaders across multiple verticals, including enterprise, consulting, government and education, provided insights into their cyber risk concerns and plans for 2018.

Overall, the survey revealed a coming “perfect storm,” where the problem of staff shortages collides with escalating cybercrime, leaving organizations ill-equipped to manage and respond to cyber risks and threats that are accelerating in an era of digital transformation, pervasive connections and increasingly sophisticated attack strategies sponsored by nation-states and rogue actors.

As the Spectre and Meltdown security flaws in Intel chips dominated the news in early 2018, and after a year of major security breach announcements and settlements, including Equifax, Yahoo and Anthem, the following findings are hardly surprising:

  • 67 percent of cybersecurity leaders do not have sufficient staff to handle the daily barrage of cyber alerts they receive
  • 60 percent expect digital threats to grow as their organizations increase online engagement with customers
  • The top three digital threats information security leaders fear are phishing and malware attacks on employees and customers; brand impersonation, abuse, and reputational damage; and information breaches
  • The top risk organizations face today is a lack of experienced staff to monitor and help protect networks from cybercrime
  • Currently, 37 percent of firms have engaged a managed security services provider (MSSP) to help monitor and manage cyberthreats.

“The RiskIQ 2018 CISO Survey illuminates a growing industry-wide problem, which is that cybercrime is growing at scale, and enterprises are already experiencing critical staff shortages. That’s one reason 1 in 3 organizations have engaged with an MSSP to combat cyber risks and threats, and we expect that number to grow as the competition for top security talent gets far more intense,” said Lou Manousos, CEO at RiskIQ.
