ADT Empowers Small Business Owners with Insights to Address Cybersecurity Challenges in Today’s Digital World

As an advocate of small businesses across the country, leading security provider ADT (NYSE: ADT) today announced its sponsorship of America’s Small Business Summit, hosted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce from June 11–13. On the heels of last month’s National Small Business Week celebration, ADT will join small business owners, entrepreneurs and Chamber executives in Washington D.C. to share tools, strategies, and best practices on how to navigate today’s rapidly changing business landscape.

One key topic of the summit will be a discussion surrounding cybersecurity and how small business owners can safely access their digital domains and prevent cyber-attacks. According to the National Small Business Association (NSBA) a single cyber-attack could cost a small business an average of more than $8,000, as a result of service interruption, tainted reputation and loss of critical data, amongst other factors.

On June 11, the opening day of America’s Small Business Summit, ADT Chief Information Security Officer Tom Dennison will participate in a panel discussion to share best practices for business owners in pinpointing and addressing cybersecurity vulnerabilities within their environments. Joining him on the panel will be members from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and PCI Security Standards Council. The panelists will share their views on the acceptance and implementation of the NIST cybersecurity framework, designed to improve how business owners manage cybersecurity risks (full details below).

“Incorporating sound security measures from the start can help small business owners mitigate threats and boost day-to-day productivity, while allowing more time to focus on their customers, employees and growing their business,” said Luis Orbegoso, President of ADT Small Business. “As a sponsor of America’s Small Business Summit, we’re proud to help connect business owners to a variety of resources for optimizing and protecting their ventures, from the inside-out.”

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged.

The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...

For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data. DevOps intends to bridge these gaps to make tech driven operations more aligned and efficient.
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
