IFGICT and Microsoft are two excellent worldwide organizations that are currently striving to strengthen ICT industry standards. They recently collaborated, and Microsoft will soon announce that the IFGICT security standard will be implemented by 2023.
IFGICT is a non-profit organization based in the United States that sets standards for talent development in the ICT business. In addition, the IFGICT offers a variety of certifications for a variety of international standards. It has also been recognized by UNFCCC – CDM for providing excellent training and consulting.
IFGICT has developed cybersecurity standards to ensure that your company’s data is safe and secure. Organizations might suffer significant losses as a result of data theft, which can also stifle growth. As a result, these guidelines will assist firms in rapidly expanding.
To ensure the confidentiality and safety of organizational data, IFGICT conducts periodical audits in accordance with the agreement. These audits also aid in the detection of ambiguity and undesirable issues, allowing the organization to address them quickly.
These audits will benefit a company in the following ways:
- Confirmation of the company’s safety policy to ensure that it is appropriate for the situation.
- Reduce costs by deleting all hardware and software that is typically overlooked during an audit.
- Identifies all of your company’s flaws that could jeopardise its success.
- Shows if the company is adhering to the company’s norms and ideals.
Microsoft is a multinational corporation that makes computer hardware and software, as well as gaming and mobile platforms and cloud services. It created the Windows operating system, the Windows server operating system, and Microsoft Office, which includes MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and a variety of other programs. These Microsoft Office programs are widely used all over the world. It’s a massive corporation that works relentlessly to provide excellent communication and technology services.
Microsoft is working on cybersecurity by coordinating with officials all over the world to discuss the topic. It also aids international efforts to improve the future security of computing. Furthermore, Microsoft is committed to building a public policy that will maintain public confidence in technology while also protecting cyberspace from new and emerging risks. Microsoft is currently focusing its research on four broad areas that are of particular importance to policymakers. These are some of them:
- Cybersecurity Strategy and Flexibility
- Cloud Safety and Insurance
- Cybercrime Law and Policy
- Digital Geneva Caucus
Microsoft has also joined with IFGICT at the ISCICT Summit and will announce the adoption of IFGICT’s cybersecurity standard.
The IFGICT and Microsoft collaboration would be a big success. As IFGICT president Dr. Kayyali Mohamed stated, such an endeavor from a major organization like Microsoft will greatly empower their long-term communication and technological standards.
Not only for IFGICT but also for other ICT companies, this is fantastic news. To protect itself from data breaches, every company must adhere to a set of rules. Furthermore, Microsoft’s massive initiative demonstrates the value of IFGICT standards and how other organizations can benefit. As a result, this collaboration will contribute to the global importance of IFGICT standards.
