This last year has been a rollercoaster of new challenges, opportunities and a complete shift in the way many of us work.

Who would have thought that technology would play such a pivotal role?

Savvy businesses have been taking advantage of the power of IT to empower their business and harness working dynamically, remotely and securely during this time.

Understandably, many firms are looking to cut back on expenditures. It can be a minefield about how to best invest in technology to get the most out of a little. At the same time, cybersecurity risks and threats are increasing. Are you worried about:

  • Losing money or reputation
  • Data leaks
  • Not being able to restore systems or data from backups
  • Staff not being able to work because systems are down

Having the right IT Foundations in place is essential to address such concerns. To convey those in a simple way to our customers, we are launching our new IT Baseline Standard 2020.

What is it?

Our IT Baseline Standard 2020 brings together 20 years of experience in the IT industry, helping businesses just like yours, with best practices, surpassing industry standards and applying proactive cybersecurity. The Baseline provides a benchmark to allow you to attain, and ultimately exceed, our minimum information, technology and security standards.

We intend to remove uncertainty, promote strategic planning and cultivate an informed decision-making process.

The 10 Core Elements of the IT Baseline Standard cover all aspects of IT and security:

What is the benefit to your businesses?

Working with IT Foundations puts your IT and security in safe hands. Our industry experts have been working tirelessly over the past months to curate the standards and set out everything that we think is critically important, concentrating our energy on supporting you. Ultimately, this allows your business to focus on what it does best and not get caught up in IT and security.

Of course, standards evolve to reflect new technologies, working practices and risks. Which, is why this year’s Standard is the 2020 version. Next year, and each following year, we will review the IT landscape and adapt the Standard to reflect what you need to keep your business up to date and secure.
