We recently sat down with Erik Josephson, the President and Manager of Sales and Engineering at Josephson Manufacturing to discuss how BerganKDV’s S2 Security Assessment changed the way the company approached its security strategy and the benefits of partnering with BerganKDV on technology solutions and advisory. Here’s what he had to say about BerganKDV’s innovative assessment:
“BerganKDV’s assessment gave us a clear picture of our security status. Through the assessment, we were able to identify security weaknesses that we weren’t initially aware of. After receiving our results, BerganKDV provided us with education and resources to address our security vulnerabilities and helped us establish policies for the future so we can feel confident that our company is as secure as possible.
One of the biggest benefits of the assessment was fully understanding the possible security threats out there and how to defend against them. Because manufacturers often have proprietary software, procedures and client data to protect, they face security risks that go beyond the standard cyberattacks, such as making sure their facilities are completely secure. Having physical security processes in place like door locks, badge entries, and camera systems are extremely important, and the assessment helped us further improve our own.
Another achievement from the assessment was re-evaluating how we partner with third-party vendors to confirm they are handling our private data with care. The same goes for how we train our team members on security matters, we now have the resources needed to educate our employees on the importance of security best practices to keep our company safe on multiple fronts.
We’ve partnered with BerganKDV for several years now and have appreciated the responsiveness and expertise they have brought to the table to help us not only improve our security strategy, but manage our IT needs.”
