EXPERIENCE A YEAR OF MICROSOFT 365 BUSINESS FOR A SPECIAL PRICE

2018 will not be the lone year that data will be viewed as an immediate concern foreshadowing the implementation of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on May 25, 2018. IT privacy and security compliance will continue to be significant to small and medium sized businesses with the development and implementations of regulations that may affect their regular operations.

Integrated Solution

Designed for organizations with 300 members and below, Microsoft 365 Business is specifically created to answer the needs of small and medium-sized businesses.  Considering that they have smaller resources and lower manpower compared to enterprises, they can get the value that is practically at par to the services enjoyed by enterprises. Microsoft 365 Business is an integrated, complete, intelligent solution that bundles productivity, security, and device management through Office 365, Windows 10, and Enterprise Mobility + Security.

With ‘Intelligent for Security,’ as one of Microsoft 365’s core principles, it has features that prove its worth, such as “Compliance Manager” that is relevant in proactively dealing with GDPR. Compliance Manager automatically monitors your system to ensure you are following regulations.

IT Privacy and Security Compliance Simplified for your Business

All these regulation-abiding technicalities may seem to be complex to business owners. However, an IT service provider and compliance expert (namely Computer Solutions East and Cover Compliance, LLC) have teamed up for a series of webinars to guide them safely through.

All the webinars are offered by CSE and Cover Compliance, and are hosted by Glenn Mills, president of Cover Compliance. The webinars titled “IT Privacy and Security Compliance Simplified for your Business” has been truly successful due to the warm response of its attendees.

In 2008, Glenn began Cover Compliance to focus on smaller enterprises that face the same compliance challenges as large organizations but usually lack the resources that larger businesses take for granted.

The remaining installments of the webinar on June 14, June 19, June 21, June 26, and June 28 are still open for registration.

COMPUTER SOLUTIONS EAST, INC. PARTNERS WITH COVER COMPLIANCE, LLC

Computer Solutions East, Inc. (CSE) partners with Cover Compliance, a company that brings cost-effective compliance program support for smaller enterprises.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been a pressing concern for business owners. Some are only beginning to pay attention to it now that we are on the last call before its full implementation on May 25th. Failure to comply with GDPR may result in large fines.

CSE and Cover Compliance are focusing on delivering services to support Microsoft Business 365’s Secure Score and Compliance Manager.

 

Microsoft Business 365’s Secure Score:

  • Analyzes your Office 365 organization’s security based on your regular activities and security settings and then assigns a score. Think of it like a credit score for security.
  • Using Secure Score helps increase your organization’s security by encouraging you to use the built-in security features in Office 365 (many of which you already purchased but might not be aware of).

Microsoft Business 365’s Compliance Manager:

  • It combines the detailed information provided by Microsoft to auditors and regulators as part of various third-party audits of Microsoft ‘s cloud services against various standards and information that Microsoft compiles internally for its compliance with regulations (such as the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR) with your own self-assessment of your organization’s compliance with these standards and regulations.
  • Enables you to assign, track, and record compliance and assessment-related activities, which can help your organization cross team barriers to achieve your organization’s compliance goals.
  • Provides a secure repository for you to upload and manage evidence and other artifacts related to your compliance activities.
  • Produces richly detailed reports in Microsoft Excel that document the compliance activities performed by Microsoft and your organization, that can be provided to auditors, regulators, and other compliance stakeholders.

From Luke Celente, CSE’s Managing Partner: “At first glance, I knew that this partnership would work well. Our vision is to enable small to medium-sized businesses to become more efficient and effective. CSE (as a technology service provider) and as Cover Compliance (a compliance business strategist) unite for this project, implementing compliance tests through Microsoft existent technologies would be an all-in deal for our clients.”

According to Glenn Mills, CEO of Cover Compliance: “I am excited for Cover Compliance to be partnering with CSE to help clients evolve and strengthen their compliance programs. Microsoft has created some incredible privacy and security compliance tools that are available to CSE customers as a part of their subscriptions. CSE’s deep knowledge of Microsoft products and Cover Compliance’s experience with simplifying data protection compliance will allow us to leverage those Microsoft tools for best use by clients. Our combined effort should help clients minimize information risks and gain confidence in their compliance programs.

SAMSAM RANSOMWARE DISRUPTS ATLANTA CITY GOVERNMENT OPERATIONS

On March 22, 2018, SamSam Ransomware infested the computers of the local government unit of the City of Atlanta. They have immediately notified citizens via their Twitter account admitting that they were experiencing “outages on various customer-facing applications”; as reported by CNN. The Mayor of Atlanta, Keisha Lance Bottoms, faced the media to explain how they were dealing with the cyberattack.

SamSam, a ransomware, has penetrated local government of Atlanta’s servers. As reported by CBS46, during the SamSam infestation, the computer monitor showed the instructions of the perpetrators who were asking them to pay 6 bitcoins for all their computers, for a total value of $51,000.00 as ransom to remove the encryption of their data. After that, a decryption software will be sent.

 Tracking SamSam Ransomware and its Damage to Atlanta Government 

As observed in the previous cyberattacks of the SamSam ransomware, a pattern has emerged showing that it is most likely focused on government institutions. Thus, the basic services to the citizens are jeopardized.

In the state of Georgia, Atlanta city has a huge population. Atlanta is reported to have a 2018 density of 1,423/km² based from the statistics of “World Population Review” which shows the impact of cyber-attacks in the government. The services to citizens are primarily affected. The public wi-fi in Hartsfield Jackson International Airport was also suspended temporarily to prevent further data privacy threats, according to AJC’s report.

Incidents of Samsam cyberattack must be strictly monitored, as it clearly knows its easiest target with the biggest impact is the government.

IS IT MAY 2018 YET? GDPR ON FULL IMPLEMENTATION SOON

Customer privacy has been a long-time concern: from ransomware attacks to illegal encryption of files to data breach. It has been over a year since the news of the implementation of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Whether or not your business is located in the European Union (EU), possessing the identification of data of your customers who are EU citizens gives you the responsibility of fully complying with the GDPR because data protection is a clear issue of privacy and security.

Microsoft keeps its partners duly informed about all aspects of GDPR since they carry the brand and product line; thus they must remain faithful to its quality service. Microsoft has Office 365, Enterprise Mobility + Security, Microsoft Azure, SQL, Windows Server, and Windows that comprise a compact security-induced toolkit for the customer.

“Do-it-yourself” assessments on your customer database to check if you are fully GDPR compliant may come off as risky since you may have missed out on important details. A GDPR assessment from a registered service provider like Computer Solutions East, Inc., a Microsoft partner, is a safer choice to as a responsible data holder for your customers’ data.

As Microsoft reminds its partners, GDPR’s full blast implementation will be on May 25,2018, which means that organizations that do not comply can be penalized for not ensuring optimized privacy of customers’ information.

DYNAMICS 365 BRINGS UPDATES THIS SPRING

Back in the Microsoft Inspire 2017, Microsoft Chief Executive Officer Satya Nadella repeatedly mentioned about digital transformation of business through the use of Dynamics 365. More than one year since its launch, it has been living up its promise of digital transformation in different industries by launching updates that trim down processes via sourcing out third platforms to execute marketing strategies (ex. sending out newsletters and posting various content).

Microsoft has released an electronic journal titled “Dynamics 365: Spring ’18 Release Notes The Next Step in Your Digital Transformation”, containing the details of the multitude of updates of the external and internal tools that they have added.

Slated to be out on the spring of 2018, Microsoft will launch another big update for Dynamics 365 involving its marketing and sale respective automation tools.

Microsoft always sticks to the concept of a customer’s journey in illustrating the suggested marketing tactics to be employed. So, to respond to the structure of the customer’s journey, according to Microsoft they have appended in this marketing automation tool:  page designer and in-browser for content creation; portals and webinars for event management; lead management, and analytics for marketing insights.

The marketing automation tool of Dynamics 365 carries different marketing tactics that have been proven effective and stood the test of time. But this time, it was designed to carry copious masses of e-mail, easier creation of form and conducting surveys, tracking leads, measuring analytics, and time-saver and ready-made templates for campaigns.

The sales professional automation tool embeds both Office 365 and LinkedIn Sales navigator to monitor the relationships that have been created, as well as, follow through with the customers that you have recently connected with. Compared to Dynamics 365 for Sales Enterprise, Dynamics 365 for Sales Professional is a more affordable package made for small to medium businesses.

Still priced at $40.00, Dynamics 365 is both a customer relationship management tool and enterprise resource planning tool.

MICROSOFT CERTIFIES CSE’S SILVER COMPETENCY FOR COMMUNICATION

On April 2, 2018,  Computer Solutions East, Inc. (CSE) was awarded by Microsoft with the Silver Competency for Communications.

Microsoft declares that the communication competency is about its “unique position in the market as a unified communications provider to the business and their customers’ advantage”. Some of the specific skills measured to earn it are: planning and designing, deploying and configuring for SFB and managing and troubleshooting Enterprise Voice. (Microsoft, 2015)

Skype For Business, the business communication tool with voice, chat, and audio-video conference capabilities, is an essential skill requirement to acquire the communications competency.  In an article by Microsoft Office support, it was explained that Skype for Business (SFB) is formerly known as Microsoft Lync. In 2015, Lync was replaced with SFB but its elements, functions, and interface were retained.

As a Microsoft partner, CSE is committed to become proficient in all aspects of Microsoft offerings. As of writing, CSE now holds five (5) Gold Competencies for the following: Cloud Platform, Cloud Productivity, Small and Midmarket Cloud Solutions, Datacenter, and Windows and Devices.  CSE also bears six (6) Silver Competencies for: Cloud Customer Relationship Management, Application Development, Silver Enterprise Mobility Management, Messaging, Collaboration and Content, and Communications.
