For The New Year: Know Your Cyber Security Status
Regarding cyber security–we’ve heard so many reasons why people don’t think their business will ever be hacked. We’re not big enough, not rich enough, because we provide basic services, because there’s nothing exciting in our database; the list goes on. And yet, we hear from solo practitioners, day care centers, eldercare facilities, hospitals, tire stores, retail gift boutiques, hardware stores–anyone with a website—that their data has been hacked or that their data is frozen pending a ransom.
If you are a business owner, you need to know how well-protected you are. It’s as critical as knowing your client base or target audience. Like putting locks on your doors, you need to have rock-solid cyber security around your business computer network. And like an insurance policy for your home and your vehicles, you need to have a disaster recovery plan in place for when you do get hit. Should someone steals your data or demand ransom–what do you do first?
