A COMMON TRAP THAT HAUNTS SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS.png

Nobody cares more about your business than you do.

No matter how good your employees are, chances are they’re never going to care about your business as much as you do, right?

And when it comes to cybersecurity, the reality is that 48% of data breaches are caused by negligent employees.

Over the years I’ve seen this time and time again with many of my customers.

And it’s a major problem.

Despite this, we know most people don’t intentionally come to work to do a bad job.

Most of the time, employees don’t realize they’re making mistakes, like innocently clicking the cross on a system update.

Or they may not want to bother someone to ask for tech support because they figure it will make them look bad, take too long, or cost too much.

So, they ignore the warning signs.

Meanwhile, that “minor issue” is festering and can end up disrupting the entire organization if left untreated.

This can lead to things like cyber-attacks or serious viruses being unleashed on your business that can block access to your systems and data.

So, without the right systems, policies, and processes in place, this is a very real problem for many small business owners.

But it doesn’t have to be this way…

That’s where an ITSM and IT Policy Consultant can help.

In fact, there are some frankly amazing, simple, and cost-effective ways to increase the likelihood of employees safeguarding your business.

And making sure your systems always get the updates they need.

Having an ITSM and IT Policy Consultant paying close attention to your IT also ensures you’re not taking unnecessary risks.

And it means you're less likely to experience a cyberattack due to employee negligence.

You are right in all aspect

If we do not take conscious steps in our businesses, no one else will do it for us

As much as some of the people we employ may or may not have our interest at heart, they sometimes do not have to be blamed

that is because as you said, most of them don't want to look stupid by asking for help in the tech or IT department so they do what they feel is important or should be done on their own. This may sometimes breach our data source or harm the company as a whole

it is, therefore, better to not leave our enterprises in the hands of the employee but in an experienced IT personnel so that they can take care of everything for us.

For sure. I have found most employees are just trying to get things done and will do what they can to get the job done. What we should be doing is looking at what is the barrier to them getting the job done and looking to work with them to break that barrier down without sacrificing necessary security.
