Partnership Announcement - Virtual Auditor and ecfirst
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. and IRVINE, Calif., June 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Virtual Auditor and ecfirst today announce a new partnership. This partnership is set to support multi-vertical organizations navigate increased compliance and cybersecurity demands.
Cybersecurity has reached a fever pitch and will not be trending down… With organizations adjusting "on the fly" to remote operations, a majority of information security teams don't have the luxury of ensuring adequate resources are in place to secure this segment. According to a recent survey conducted by the International Informational System Security Certification Consortium "(ISC)2", 47% of cybersecurity workers report being taken off their typical security duties to assist with other IT-related tasks. Furthermore, 23% report an increase in cybersecurity incidents at their organization, with some tracking double compared to normal rates.
"As part of an ongoing effort to provide short and long-term, impactful solutions, Virtual Auditor's partnership with ecfirst will support those seeking to navigate uncertainty and remain resilient in their compliance and cybersecurity practices," said Virtual Auditor Founder Tom Barker.
"The Wall Street Journal recently reported that cyber criminals have adapted their ransomware tactics during the COVID-19 pandemic, setting their malware to launch more quickly once inside the network". The combination of phishing and ransomware attacks, together with an increased deployment of IoT devices have provided additional attack surfaces to hackers," stated ecfirst Chief Executive Ali Pabrai. "As an Authorized External HITRUST® Assessor, ecfirst is looking forward to our collaboration with Vrtual Auditor to transform client cyber defense capabilities."
