Small Business Security Risks




While small businesses have many of the same technology needs as larger organizations, they don't have the resources of a full staffed IT department.  Without a team of individuals focusing on the managing your IT resources, your business is exposed to many risks needlessly. 


Typical Technical issues and risks addressed for Small Businesses

  • Virus Protection - Improperly configured, not up to date, and not centrally managed, leading to increased virus risks, and often undiscovered viruses currently infecting your systems, leading to data loss, damaged programs, or security breaches.
  • Data management - Improperly configured data protection & backup solutions, poorly configured tape rotation plans, and  no off-site or fire-proof storage of tapes, all increase your immediate risk to your data.  Additionally  they may increase your legal risks as you may not meet your legal obligations for maintaining archived data for legally sufficient time periods.
  • Local security - Little or no local security, where user can install, delete, or "Tweak" their own systems, leads to unlicensed software running on your systems, inconsistent configurations, accidental application deletion, or worse yet, data loss.  Fines for unlicensed software can run as high as $50,000 per occurrence.
  • Remote connectivity security - Protection from individuals outside your organization gaining access to your key data, programs or resources is more important than ever as we are ever more dependent on the increased connectivity and information access that the Internet brings.
  • Performance tuning - Most users desktop systems as well as servers are not properly configure, and therefore not running as well as they should, wasting time, money, and not allowing you to use all the power you have paid for.  
  • Network speed - Network seem to be running slower and slower all the time, with each new programs your organization installs, it seems to be taking increasingly long amounts of time to load programs, access data, or print documents.
  • Desktop Configuration - A lack of consistent systems configurations where each system has its "own" peculiarities, increases the time to solve any problem, and leads to unnecessary money spent supporting your systems.
