Most small businesses are vulnerable to security breaches because they’re an easy target – they don’t have adequate protections in place. And many who do take proper security measures assume that threats to their network are going to be from some unknown evil hacker.
Sadly, many successful attacks on computer networks were done by insiders – your own employees. And according to a Harris interactive poll, 36% of US workers would steal customer data or other electronic files. And the employee who has the most access, opportunity, and skill to carry out an attack would be your own IT person. A staff IT person can become disgruntled with your company, disenchanted, or just curious. That person has all your passwords and access to all company data, so they could cause serious harm if they wanted to.
By outsourcing your IT service and support, you eliminate the motivations to compromise your network. A good outsourced IT firm is highly service oriented, and you are the client, not the employer. You’re never entrusting your data to one individual, but to a reputable IT company that can supervise and oversee the work performed. And with mPowered IT, you get an IT company that aligns its business goals with yours – as in, we’re both more profitable when your network is secure and working as it should.
