Security Update

Nearly every week, you hear a news story about a cyber-attack on a large company. Maybe you think you'll never be targeted because you're a smaller company. Frankly, these crooks attack small businesses MORE than larger companies, simply because you're an easy target. Are you 100% sure that you have working anti-virus on every computer AND your server? Is every employee required to sign an Acceptable Use Policy and undergo continuing education? If you're not sure if you're bulletproof, then you are a PRIME target for these cyber-attacks. Give us a call today!

When the livelihood of your business depends on data stored in your computer network, you simply cannot afford to leave anything to chance. Data preservation and the ability to retrieve it at any point in time is the foundation of business continuity.

Yet the facts about backup failures are shocking:

  • According to the Boston Computing Network, 31% of PC users have lost data due to events "beyond their control."
  • Analysts at the Hughes Marketing Group found that 40% of businesses that experience a critical IT failure go out of business within one year.
  • In a recent Gartner study, only 35% of backup tests were successful.

Many of these companies and organizations are not even aware of this legal requirement!


An Army Of Lions

In my book You Don't Need a Title to be a Leader: How Anyone, Anywhere, Can Make a Positive Difference , I quote Philip of Macedonia (father of Alexander the Great), who said, "An army of deer led by a lion is more to be feared than an army of lions led by a deer."

His insight is valuable – however, I think he misses the bigger point: an army of lions led by a lion is to be feared most of all. So why not recruit and hire an army of lions?
