CySure partners with digital consultants Rubitek for cyber security

It’s vital that SMEs safeguard their business by investing in security policies, procedures and products. CySure is partnering with Rubitek to support SMEs implement strong, cyber security practices.”

— Joe Collinwood, Chief Executive Officer, CySure

LONDON, UK, December 11, 2018 / — Cyber security specialist CySure Ltd has partnered with Rubitek as a digital consulting re-seller. Rubitek has added CySure’s Virtual Online Security Officer (VOSO) to its digital consulting offering to support businesses worldwide with their cyber security.

Sammy Williams, Digital Architect at and Director of Rubitek, said: “We are delighted to introduce CySure’s VOSO to our product suite. Cyber-attacks are becoming increasingly prominent in the world of business, so to be able to help small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) prevent attacks is a really exciting opportunity for us. VOSO fits in nicely with our established digital consulting products, and we’re all looking forward to supporting businesses all over the world, one click at a time.”

SMEs in the UK are just as much at risk from data breaches as large organisations. According to the Cyber Security Breaches Survey 2018, 42% of small businesses identified at least one breach or attack in the last 12 months. Suffice to say, this is a significant problem, and one that’s only set to increase as online criminals continue to discover new ways to access valuable and personal information stored by businesses.
Sammy continued: “We chose to partner with CySure because VOSO incorporates the high security standards, around-the-clock monitoring and action-lead reports we offer our customers. CySure shares our values and vision of helping SMEs stay cyber-safe and, like us, no challenge is too complex, and no goal is too grand for them. Together, our aim is to shield as many SMEs from internet-based attacks as we can.”

VOSO incorporates both US NIST and UK Cyber Essentials security standards to guide enterprises through the certification process, ensuring the right steps are taken to keep data secure and organisations compliant.
When it comes to the world of GDPR, CySure maps the security component of the regulations into VOSO and breaks them down into digestible, easy-to-follow actions. This enables businesses to clearly navigate their way through a staged compliance approach and work towards Cyber Essentials (CE). Many companies see CE certification as a commercial differentiator and evidence of their commitment to cyber security.

Joe Collinwood, Chief Executive Officer of CySure, concluded: “Cyber security has become a fundamental component of business operations but, unfortunately, some SMEs are lagging behind.

“It’s vital that SMEs safeguard their business by investing in security policies, procedures and products. CySure is partnering with Rubitek because its market-leading consulting, design and solution architecture services complement VOSO, and we share the same objective to support SMEs in implementing strong, cyber security hygiene practices so they can thrive in today’s digital economy.”

Count to 5 for perfect multi-channel forecasting, says Teleopti

Keep it simple, that’s the message from Nick Brook of Teleopti when it comes to forecasting for multi-channel. Here are his top five tips.

The customer requirement for an omni-channel experience has been a challenge for workforce management but it doesn’t have to be that way. It’s a case of remembering the basics and keeping it simple.”

— Nick Brook, Project Manager & Consultant, Teleopti

LONDON, UK, December 7, 2018 / — Customers expect service wherever and whenever they want it and in the channel of their choice – by phone, email, Chat, SMS and social media. What’s more, they want consistency across all channels. This customer requirement for an omni-channel experience has typically been a challenge for workforce management but it doesn’t have to be that way. Having the right number of agents in the right place, at the right time is easier than you think. It’s a case of remembering the basics and keeping it simple.

Five top tips for successful multi-channel forecasting
It’s about a robust forecasting process and for the best results follow this five-step approach:

1. Unleash the power of the past
Understanding and validating historical data is critical, whatever the channel. Modern workforce management (WFM) solutions capture huge amounts of data to create a library of valuable information. Use it to spot deviations from normal events such as unexpected spikes in call volumes or even different average handling time (AHT) patterns. The first step to creating meaningful forecasts is to eliminate these ‘out of the ordinary’ events and focus on what usually happens during typical demand periods in all channels.

2. Flatten the spikes
The next step is to revisit the ‘out of the ordinary’ events that can adversely impact the efficiency of the contact center such as systems outages, negative comments on social media or news in the press. WFM technology helps to flatten the common spikes in demand. For example known “outliers” such as Christmas and Black Friday, which happen every year but on a different date can be made ‘special events’. Planners and forecasters simply tap into the powerful integration capabilities of automated WFM solutions to gather accurate data from diary and CRM applications in real-time and pinpoint these special events easily and quickly.

3. Validate long-term forecasts to identify trends
WFM solutions flag up trends based on historical data, which planners can choose to acknowledge or they can generate new forecasts by month, week or by the day. These forecasts should be based on knowledge of upcoming activities such as new marketing campaigns or future changes in business operations. To introduce a new channel rather than second-guessing what’s required, simply use historical data from well-established similar channel types to make sound forecasting decisions.

4. Drill down to the detail
Once you’ve created longer-term forecasts concentrate on daily forecasting to support flexible planning on the go. Intra-day scheduling allows planners to reschedule the contact center workforce during the day based on fluctuating arrival patterns for all types of enquiry and all channels while factoring in shrinkage ie events that take agents away from the frontline such as unexpected sickness, time off, ad-hoc breaks or training. What is more, planners can be confident that service levels are met because WFM ensures the right people are skilled and scheduled to handle the calls and tasks needed to achieve this.

5. Build readiness into schedules
Always be prepared for the unexpected such as weather conditions that prevent agents from getting to the office or major systems outages. Remember to incorporate buffers to allow for unexpected spikes in activity and unplanned absences. The latest forecasting technology enables planners to conduct ‘what if’ scenarios for all possible eventualities across all channels, making WFM a strategic forecasting tool and an intrinsic part of business continuity planning.

Finally, don’t cut corners!
With pressure on to do more with less and still deliver an exceptional customer experience, it’s tempting to cut a few corners. This is a fatal mistake and can unravel all the good work you’ve achieved. A few simple housekeeping rules like keeping records of previous forecasts, building both operational and business changes into forecasts, networking with other parts of the organization consistently and on a regular basis will make all the difference. You’ll be rewarded with better contact center performance and customer satisfaction on all channels, all year round.
