Guest Blog by Mike Shelah, Director of Marketing and Business Development, Advantage Industries
Back in December 2020, My colleague Russell and I shared a webinar with Chamber members (you can watch it here https://youtu.be/Wsidf2Q-wYM ) about simple , effective and low cost cyber security tips that every business should follow.
Here is a hard truth, the days of having an “IT break fix guy” that puts out fires for you when something breaks are long gone. It is super easy for a hacker to steal your information today, you really need to be proactive and work with a team to keep everything up to date. That said, there is plenty you can do as a business owner to better protect your company, your data and your reputation.
Following these rules will greatly enhance the protection of your company data and reduce your liability. We implement all of these for our clients (and many more security features) plus we proactively monitor everything.
Bonus, recommendation. Sign up for a full cyber security insurance policy. This one is also fairly low cost and you will be glad you have it, when something does go wrong.
We can provide all chamber members with a free dark web scan and we can provide most (about 90%) with a free network scan. Contact us today and find out how simple and affordable full protection can be. The scans are yours to keep, no obligation.
Our Chamber Blog is designed to provide you information about The Chamber, our members, advocacy and legislative updates, and important business tools.
