Internet security

 

Small business owners have a lot of things to do in a day and as a result many are reactive about technology instead of proactive. As a business grows, you will probably consider and / or look at security, IT administration, cloud computing, hosted email, and other technology issues on an as-needed basis. While this is common for small business owners it can lead to problems.

If you can switch to being proactive instead of reactive about IT management and internet security you’ll be in a better position for growth and you’ll lower the risk of problems such as data loss, intrusion, and other issues that plague many companies who are growing.  IT problems could cripple your business if they get out of control. And even something as seemingly harmless as employees surfing the web on company equipment on their lunch hour could put your data, any e-commerce sites you operate, and your productivity at risk.

Internet Security: Be Proactive Not Reactive

Some companies add IT security software as needed. Don’t wait until you’ve gotten your first virus to get antivirus.  Don’t make the mistake of assuming that since you don’t “think” you’ve got problems with intrusions or data theft that those problems don’t exist. If you aren’t being proactive about internet security, you are putting your business and your productivity at risk.

Seemingly Innocuous IT Problems Could be Symptoms of Big Problems  

Something as seemingly harmless (though annoying) as pop-up windows, a slower than usual computer, or homepage redirect could mean that your IT security issues need to be addressed — pronto.

Regardless of whether your business is large, medium-sized, or small you need to make IT security a priority. Security problems can put your data at risk and can render your equipment useless. Even seemingly small problems like adware on a computer could eat away at your productivity levels. Whether you have 1 computer or many machines and devices that help you run your business and serve your customers, proactive IT security is important.
