In this day and age of cyber attacks, ransomware, viruses, and data security breaches, it’s important to keep the overall IT challenges your business faces at the forefront of your IT strategy.
1) Cyber Criminals – According to frightening statistics compiled by the National Cyber Security Alliance, almost 50% of small businesses have experienced a cyber attack, and as many as 60% of hacked small and medium-sized businesses go out of business after six months.
2) Antiquated Software – Unintuitive systems can cause sheer frustration for you and your coworkers, and the lack of newer technologies may actually drive customers away from you and right to your competitors. Keep your systems up to date like the life of your business depends on it because it does. Firewalls, anti-virus, and encrypted backups are all part of your overall peace of mind.
3) Moving to the Cloud – Moving to the cloud can seem so daunting and downright frightening! Be sure to explore your options and ask your IT support partner to explain in detail why they are recommending the course that they have set for your account. Be aware that without a broad bandwidth downloading large amounts of information can take some time.
