As a business owner you went into business to pursue your passion.
Computers and mobile phones have made your life easier and allow you to react to your customers faster.
At the same time, it seems that you need to become an IT expert in order to keep things running. You have assigned a person in your office to act as the “techie”.
The technology is getting more complicated with cloud computing, Windows upgrades, new iPhones, viruses, and Ransomware attacks. You seem to be getting involved deeper into the “techie” side of technology instead of using technology as a tool. This is taking your time away from pursuing your passion and growing your business.
You are getting fed up with chronic computer problems and how your staff loses productivity dealing with these problems by researching on Google, watching youtube videos and trying to find out what it going on.
You realize that protecting your business data is critical and now you worry that your backups and IT security are not up to date. Perhaps your IT person is a friend or family relative but now that your business is growing, you are concerned that your IT person doesn’t have a handle on things?
You need a computer IT support company who responds quickly and takes care of your network before problems occur and has predictable “no hidden fees or up sells” pricing.
Cyber Security – The New Challenge
According to the Canadian Chamber of Commerce report “Cyber Security in Canada – 2017 “According to StaySafeOnline.org, 71% of data breaches happen to small businesses, and nearly half of all small businesses have been the victim of a cyber attack.
” See article here:
You know that your business could be under attack from Ransomware but you are not sure what to do about it.
Many business owners believe that by being in the cloud, the cloud provider will handle all of the security issues. This is not necessarily correct. Cloud storage is usually containerized by the cloud provider to isolate data corruption. You are running your business so taking the time to become a cyber security expert is not what you signed up for.
You know deep down that in order to take your business beyond the next level you need to let go of your IT issues and let a proven company of professional transition your technology from the expense to the profit column.
