IT security is not just a side issue that you, as a business owner or manager, can deal with when you have time. It's an ongoing, constant requirement for any business manager to ensure that your IT security is set, fixed, and always updated.
IT security has a huge impact on your business operations. Really - a breach or hack can impact any aspect of your business and could even have devastating consequences if not managed in advance and in a comprehensive manner.
Starting out with a solid IT security foundation requires a couple of simple first steps:
- Evaluate your current security environment and identify any key areas for improvement.
- Ensure that simple tasks have been met - employees have strong passwords, you use secure print, and you have basic IT issues and fixes in place.
- Work with a reliable vendor partner to share the data about where your IT security currently stands and where you would like it to be.
Staying Ahead of Security
Next, you'll want to make sure you take the time to work with your vendor partner to implement simple yet substantial security solutions. These may include:
- Investing in updated office equipment with advanced security features
- Creating a managed IT team for security oversight at all times
- Securing print, network, devices, and other often overlooked areas of the workplace
- Ensuring that document access is protected - and digitized, if possible
