Redgear

 

 

IT company responsible for security of their clients. IT is a lifestyle. RedGear value proposition is turkey solutions. They are your smart friend to help with tech.

 

Support IT for small businesses. They also have larger enterprise type clients. They act as a consultant, and can screen for a CTO or a CIO for a company.

 

IT should be a priority of companies yet, it is often an afterthought. Need to understand how to secure an IT room, not just in software, but also the actual room itself. Who has access?

 

RedGear works in the tech and security industry which is the backbone of all organizations and compliance. People hire RedGear to outsource and shift liability. IT in its simplest form is anything that you plug into the wall and connect to the Internet. It can also mean security.

 

Trust of your IT provider, and keeping business contingency. Question, businesses always have to answer is how long can they stay down with an interruption and survive. Plus what is their plan for data retention.

 

IT can be about network, connections, computers, hardware, and the actual Physical IT room. Can also deal in cyber security and password resets. IT has both software as well as hardware like servers and programming applications.

 

Luciano has 20+ years of experience working in IT and technology. Information Technology not always the priority of many companies but it really should be. Need a plan going forward to manage security and data in all businesses.

 

You have to determine what’s going to be your budget based on the size of the business. Not uncommon to outsource to companies like RedGear. Also need to think about the physical aspects of IT, like is your room secure?

 

What type of energy your BTU air conditioner usage are you using? Who has control, how cool is it. Who has access to the room? What is your electrical circuit set up?

 

Do you have redundancy? Or electrical circuit separate and dedicated to the IT. What is your data or cloud storage like?

 

 

Seg 3

 

IT is the backbone of many organizations and should be a priority.

 

Need to hire trustworthy people, as well as outsource IT to trustworthy companies. There’s no perfect set up. Unfortunately, security breaches are more question of When, and not if.

 

One of the worst stories about IT Luciano ever heard of was the janitor storage closet was the same as the IT room. Another issue with a lot of IT rooms is they don’t have good cooling. IT should be a separate room with good security.

 

You want to also have video security and badge access. Physical access of an IT room is very underrated. Security is the biggest threat to the end-user. You have to know when a breach happens.

 

How did it happen? It could be software but often it’s actually the employees as a threat. They need to pay attention to what is going on and types of emails they get.

 

Also, sometimes security breaches are an inside job. Companies need to test and educate their staff about IT.

 

Once Malware gets in to the system it can take over accounts and send email as the person. Phishing scams unfortunately are still very popular with emails.

 

Good email security typically will filter out malicious emails. Then you waitlist your contact, so you know who it’s OK to email. All these need to examine emails.

 

 

Seg 4

 

IT reviews & monitors compliance, so a company must determine a budget.

 

Data is the gold of companies now. Data contains the companies processes, industry secrets, and private employee and customer info. It is crucial to have a backup of company data, typically onsite and secured, plus offsite in the cloud. You’ll always want to build in redundancy and have backup servers for data.

 

Good IT set up will have disaster recovery. As for the physical set up and protecting data, you want to be aware of how your sprinkler system is set up. You always have to guard against disgruntled employees, who could steal or delete company data.

 

Your IT provider needs to know the industry and have good experience to engineer the proper solution.

 

RedGear has worked with some top level clients, including the DEA in Washington DC on a federal level. Their cyber security needs to be top-of-the-line.

 

It is not in common for the average big company to deal with corporate attacks where hackers try to steal data, and then even hold it hostage for ransom.

 

Common practice nowadays is for a business to have cyber security liability insurance. The application for the insurance will ask about the physical environment and the set up of the IT and data.

 

The medical industry has updated cyber and HIPAA compliance. It is essential to have good IT, hospitals and any major medical office.

 

RedGear is your IT smart friends. They will always give you recommendations of good better and best.
