Dear Business Professional:
It likely goes without saying that your business is entirely – or at least mostly – reliant on
And thanks to that technology, it’s never been easier to connect with clients from all over the world, or connect to the office from anywhere, at any time. This also means that more and more of the documents and information your business generates, accumulates, and counts on to deliver services and complete tasks exists solely in a digital format.
So when that technology fails? The problems that failure can cause are more than just a nuisance; they can cripple your entire operation. What would happen to your business if a hacker infiltrated your network and encrypted all of your files? Would you be able to rely on your data backups to restore your files? Do you even have an adequate backup system in place to fall back on?
If the answer to any of these questions is anything but a definitive “Yes”, your business could be in serious trouble.
Your business’ IT security should be a top priority, but an alarming number of businesses are either not taking potential threats seriously, or falsely assuming that the basic steps they’ve taken are enough to protect everything they’ve worked so hard to build.
Without comprehensive IT security and an equally comprehensive data backup plan, your business is at serious risk of falling victim to a cyber attack, or any number of other network disasters. The resulting downtime and lost revenue alone can be enough to force you to close your doors for good.
