Too often a small business owner doesn’t know how bad his IT strategy is until something catastrophic happens. Think of Marriott and their 500 million client info breach. It’s comparable to how bad yours can be, if even on a much smaller scale. Maybe 3 years ago you overhauled your business computer network and you brought in guys who set up a new firewall and installed new antivirus software? Or was it 4 years ago? Does that mean you might not be safe today? What was your plan back when that IT strategy deployed?
Aptica has seen many examples of time and money leaked, unnoticed, until some part of a network finally fails. That’s when we learn how long it’s been since any IT strategy was discussed and implemented. For example, that program to keep employees off the internet while at work used to be effective, but for whatever reason now everyone in the office can be tracked as checking private emails, ordering from Amazon, working their Instagram accounts, etc. When did this fail? Or maybe it’s an issue as subtle as how long programs take to load, computers to boot up each day, or for emails sent to actually go? It should be someone’s job to know about this stuff, right?
