Should Your Company Outsource IT?
Organizations with limited or no internal IT staff outsource IT to ensure all their business systems, operations, and networks remain up and running. Managed service providers take a proactive approach to IT, rather than waiting for something to break or shut down. The right IT provider can also help to reduce costs by letting you focus on value-added tasks in your organization and eliminating the need to hire full-time personnel to perform routine functions.
In this eBook, we provide an overview of the benefits of the services we can provide so you can make an informed decision whether or not outsourcing IT is right for you.
Cybersecurity Tips for Employees
When developing cybersecurity programs, many businesses focus on protecting their infrastructure perimeter and device endpoints. After all, that’s where cybercriminals usually first gain access and wreak havoc on a company’s digital access.
But it’s also important to consider what happens when a threat bypasses perimeter defenses and targets an employee—in the form of a malicious email or text, or even a voicemail that might prompt an employee to respond with confidential company information. There’s also the possibility of an offline attack from inside the office, where an employee or an office visitor might gain access to valuable data by quickly taking something carelessly left on a desk.
In this eBook, we explore the need for employees to practice strict and secure cybersecurity habits— not only to thwart digital attacks, but also to prevent someone from simply walking by their desk (in the office or at home) and picking up a device or document that contains sensitive information. We also present the key steps SMB business owners can take to educate their employees to help secure their company’s data and intellectual property.
