Don’t Stick Your Head in the Sand
You probably have no idea how important managed technology is to your business. Or you do, but you haven’t made it a priority.
You walk into your office one beautiful morning, the sun is shining, and you feel amazing. Business has really picked up so you’re excited to keep up the momentum. You sit at your desk, fire up the computer and find you can’t access your emails, your shared folder with critical company documents and the internet doesn’t work at all. Panic sets in and you realize your server is down. “It’ll be OK”, you say. You go down the hall and restart the server, with fingers crossed. Then, you get that sinking feeling in your stomach. Do you know what you’re doing? (You just rebooted it in the middle of its automated recovery process BTW). As you tread back to your desk, you start to ask yourself “Did I fix this?” and “What is going to happen if I didn’t?” Because honestly, you just made things worse. You NEED to have a qualified individual managing your technology. You are busy doing what you are good at, running the business. You can’t effectively manage your IT needs as well.
Let me ask you this:
Would you have access to all of your work?
Who will you, or can you trust to recover all of your work?
What is your disaster recovery plan?
Is your plan outdated?
When is the last time this plan was tested?
Oh, you didn’t have one to begin with? That’s what I thought.
What about your virus protection? Firewall?
Data losses can set a company back for weeks. Weeks.
Additionally, there are viruses like the crypto-virus that can completely encrypt all of the company’s critical data and hold it for ransom. No, I’m not joking. How do you know your systems and sensitive data are properly secured?
According to the National Cyber Security Alliance, one in five small businesses falls victim to cybercrime each year. Over 60 percent of those small companies go out of business within six months after an attack.

This is a serious question every business owner needs to ask themselves. The fact is, every business is vulnerable. Your company’s sensitive data could be gone tomorrow, and gone forever. The cost of data backup and network monitoring, for any company, is far less than the price of sensitive data loss. A network analysis could strengthen your company’s data and security infrastructure and most importantly, save your business.
