“For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne.
We’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.”
Goodbye 2016, Hello 2017! It was a rollercoaster of current events in 2016, and we’re sure 2017 will be no different. From major DDoS Attacks that shut down juggernaut web companies to a spike of devices added the internet of things- 2016 will probably go into the books as the “Year of the Unexpected”.
For many people right now, the new year is symbolic for fresh beginnings, resolutions, proverbially cleaning out the cobwebs, and as a business owner, it’s not a bad idea to make some resolutions for your business, too. We’ll get you started!
1.) “This year, I Will Revamp Our Security Plan”
We’re going to throw some statistics at you. 75% of business websites have security vulnerabilities. Spear-phishing campaigns targeting employees increased 55 percent since 2015, and half a billion personal records were stolen or lost. If that doesn’t scare you, then you must have the most comprehensive action plan in place to deal with whatever cyber criminals can throw at you. If you balked, even a little, revamping your security plan and implementing a new strategy with your employees should be first on your resolutions list!
2.) “This Year I Will Set Goals”
Technically, a resolution is a goal, but we want you to get down to the brass tacks with this one. What are your security needs? Do you want better mobility options for your employees? Do you want a more reliable virtual work-space to conduct meetings and exchange ideas? Think of 5 things you want to accomplish for your company and stick to them. You’ll be glad you did.
3.) “This Year, I Will Reset My Passwords”
If you missed our earlier blog post about passwords, we hope you’ll check it out when you’re finished making your resolutions. Hackers are more active than ever, and making sure everything is locked up nice and tight is more important than ever. It’s easy to do. We even give you some tips, here.
4.) “This Year I Will Update My Company’s Technology”
Your company is only as good as the technology it runs on. Lucky for you, we’re partnered with AT&T so we are always up to date on all of the tech offers they’re running, so we’d love to get you set up with the technology you’re looking for. New phones, tablets, network configurations- don’t hesitate to contact us to get set up!
