Every business owner takes risks; it’s just part of the challenge of being successful. As computers have become more and more indispensable in business, how is computer risk defined in today’s global IT scheme? IT management is all about assessing what you have, what you may need, when you may need it, and how you should budget for it. Aptica LLC begins every new client relationship with this sort of appraisal. It is as necessary as having the right employees or being in the best location.
Are you secure? Business size and geography is not a factor to hackers
You can take certain risks, say, with your “stuff”, but you absolutely cannot take a risk with your stored client/customer data. We have heard many times already this year that major institutions have been hacked and that your personal information may have been stolen? These constant attacks are common occurrences nowadays. Anywhere there are credit card numbers, social security numbers, even home addresses stored, there are bad guys searching for a way to steal them. Information then gets sold on the dark web, and money can be lost in a matter of minutes. Whether you are a bank, a daycare center, or a senior facility—you are likely to have a cyber attack at some time.
Let IT management experts keep your risk at a minimum
IT management means more than just cyber security. Services include virus and other malware protection, and prevention of productivity loss because of mechanical crashes. We offer 24/7 monitoring so someone is alerted if a system failure happens outside business hours. IT management is a specialty these days, not just a fun hobby for the office nerd. If you don’t know how good your current system is, start by asking questions. Give us a call at Aptica, 260.243.5100, and we can talk to you about your computers, your business network, and your mobile devices in terms you can use to relate to your business.
