procrastinating with cyber security and privacy

Concerned about Data Privacy and Cyber Security? You’re not alone…

Are you concerned about data security but have not gotten around to doing anything about it? You are not alone according to a recent article over at ZDNet. Most people surveyed on the topic are more concerned than ever, yet have put off taking any actions to make sure they or their business are protected.

It may be that they think the odds are in their favor (they are not), or more possibly could it be that many individuals and businesses do not know what steps they can and should take?

Some solutions for corporate data protection are complex and and require specific knowledge and expertise. Others are very simple like not leaving default passwords on your devices or using your significant others name as your login password.

While no IT or Managed Services Company or cyber security expert can guarantee you will never be compromised, you can significantly reduce your risk of being a target by being proactive and making sure you are working with an IT company that understands security and data protection.

If you have not done a recent cyber threat analysis, you need to and we can help.

We can put together a comprehensive test to determine any vulnerabilities and then make specific recommendations about how to mitigate any risk areas we find.” I would write this way, “If you have not recently completed a cyber threat analysis or security risk assessment, you should! And we can help. We have the tools a know-how to thoroughly test for risks and vulnerabilities, and then work with you to mitigate those risks.

In the meantime, practice strong password protection; change your passwords periodically and NEVER write passwords down on a yellow sticky and post it on your desk. You never know who may see it and what their ultimate intentions may be.
