Technological Social Responsibility of Companies.
Every day the need for companies to start investing in a more conscious and standardized way in aspects of information security and cybersecurity increases. But we have not touched on a point that may be of greater importance in the face of the companies’ clients and internal collaborators. What value does it have for you that companies consider all the necessary options in order to protect the information that you have provided and to be able to access it with confidence to their platforms? Here comes the importance of Technological Responsibility.
The reality indicates that users make decisions to share their personal information, taking into account the trust that a website gives them, it does so, from a simple perception that is directly influenced by colors or the information provided, but not by referring parameters. to the security of the data provided to them. But, what would happen if, beyond the functions of the marketing and sales areas, organizations were more aware of their corporate social work? Here a window opens so that organizations can generate a competitive advantage with their peers and not precisely thinking of a sanction or fine, on the contrary, as has happened with paradigm shifts in other business areas, the security of the Information and cybersecurity must be taken from a global perspective.
How many companies do you know that generate plans
training for your clients?
Well, the other value of cybersecurity lies in the fact that more capable companies and organizations directly affect the amount and level of risks they will have to face. Well surely today the answer may be closer to spending than investment. Well surely today the answer may be closer to spending than investment. But at the beginning of the 1990s, organizations believed that concern for the environment (and the active contribution to its improvement) was also concern. Perhaps, today -in consideration of the advancement of technologies- it is time to deliver more, to educate more and to generate a collaborative ecosystem that converges in an organization that is more responsible towards its clients and sporadic users.
Today is the right time for organizations to start integrating digital (or technological) social responsibility. It will be a differentiating value for those who allow and improve their policies, who generate mitigation plans and develop plans together with the community and their clients. Surely it will be thought that this will only imply expenses, but digital organizations must be responsible in terms of the information they request from their clients, but to the same extent as that which could be used without the users having a real notion of its use.
Don't you think that more worry will cause
potential clients- see your organization with better eyes?
Undoubtedly, the generation of value can also include social responsibility. From an objective point of view, there are countless needs that are not yet covered. To name a few; the digital divide that exists in the elderly, internet access in vast areas of our country, little or no digital education and why talk about education on the responsible use of digital and technological resources, including cybersecurity.
Corporate Technological Responsibility is Social Responsibility!
The invitation is for organizations to see the potential of generating transversal projects, to see the issue of information security and cybersecurity as something much broader and more important than a simple increase in the infrastructure budget. Obviously, we must start somewhere in our organization, but there is another value that will have a direct reflection on the perception that clients and collaborators have of the organization. If you have two companies that sell the same thing, that use the same technology, we could point out – without fear of being wrong – that you will choose the one that provides greater added value, in this case concern for the digital environment can be an important point considering that digitization has advanced in the last year what was projected for the next five. Task for each one of you, to see how to adapt your plans and projects so that they allow the integral development of your organizations and your clients.
