Date: September 16, 2020

The Pressure is on to Reduce Cost While Improving Performance

Clearly, we are in an uncertain time where some organizations are facing sustained pressure to grow…while others may be desperately working just to survive. And yet, there is also increased regulatory requirements and clients who expect you as a third-party to have every security control under the sun.

Ensure You Are Making the Right Choices

Budgeting has rarely been easy but ensuring all your bases are covered is more important than ever. For example, let’s look at the choice of whether to move a function to the cloud. Some companies hope that moving to the cloud will lower their costs only to discover unknown costs that they did not foresee. In order to optimize or (gulp) cut your budget, it must be done to minimize the risks to the business. It is equally important to ensure that you are in a defensible position to deal with the consequences of those choices.
