priorities for your IT strategy

At this time of year, many leaders and business owners are reviewing plans for the new year ahead. As we live in a digital age, the importance of solid IT strategy has never been so high. In this article we look at some key priorities that should be included in your IT strategy for 2021. An IT strategy can help you align your goals, drive

growth, and help to increase technology ROI within your company. Many businesses have IT strategies that span across three to fi ve years, but due to the constant evolution of technology, IT strategies should be reassessed annually and reviewed quarterly, as technology that was in demand fi ve years ago may be obsolete today. When thinking about the progression of your business, where do you usually start? If you’re unsure, or are thinking about updating your IT strategy, here are five priorities we recommend you consider for your IT plans in 2021.

Cyber security strategy A reactive approach to security is no longer enough to protect your business from modern cyber security threats or to remain compliant with modern regulations. By implementing a cyber security strategy, you can ensure risk to business is addressed eff ectively, while meeting the increase in regulations and securing your users and business assets. But where do you begin? We recommend you start with an IT

security audit – this will show you exactly where your organisation’s security posture has any weaknesses or gaps. You’ll be able to see which areas need immediate attention and which areas can be planned into your strategy further down the line, saving you time and money.

Secure anywhere working As we continue to work from home in 2021, many businesses are planning for the future of remote working. T e pandemic required businesses to rapidly digitise, and now research from PWC has shown that a third of UK organisations are planning to accelerate their digitalisation plans due to COVID-19, while the same proportion will have more of their employees working remotely permanently. With many devices now located outside the traditional

logical and physical security parameters, the need for secure anywhere working is greater than ever. A multi-layered, cyber security solution should be

in place to protect your employees, devices and assets allowing them to securely access corporate data from any location without friction or hindering productivity.

Digital transformation strategy A digital transformation strategy is a plan of action to reposition an organisation in the digital economy. By embracing digital transformation and making it a

part of your IT strategy, you can implement solutions that will improve your business processes and performance
