Challenges faces

A prominent architectural practice sought to strengthen its security posture and address the challenges it faced in terms of phishing attacks and data log monitoring. The company has a workforce of over 350 users and operates across seven active locations, with the growing concern for security and the desire to expand its IT department with security consultants, the company looked to their security led partner Trustack for a solution. The primary need of the architecture company was to strengthen its security posture. With an increasing number of phishing emails and no existing solution in place to monitor data logs, the company recognised the urgency to enhance its security measures. Additionally, the company aimed to improve its overall security awareness and protect its sensitive data from potential threats. Several challenges were faced that prompted its decision to engage with Trustack. Firstly, there was a high volume of phishing emails targeting the company’s employees, posing a significant security risk. Secondly, the company lacked a robust system to monitor data logs, leaving them vulnerable to potential breaches. Lastly, the company desired to expand its IT department with security consultants to ensure a more comprehensive security strategy.

These individuals collaborated closely with Trustack to identify the most appropriate security solutions for the architecture company.
