It’s the New Year and if you are a business owner, you might be making personal resolutions – and ones for your business. But are you making technology resolutions?
As you set goals and resolutions for 2023, it’s a great idea to make technology resolutions for your business. They don’t have to be big or costly, but by making a few small changes, you could increase security – and protect your company’s valuable information.
So, what technology resolutions should you make this year?
If you haven’t taken the time to really consider how your business backs up data, 2023 is the year to get that house in order. There are several options that fit every business – and budget – and now is the time to make sure you are protected. Whether you have a traditional server backup system or a cloud-based system – or both – focusing on backing up your Microsoft 365 data (email mailboxes, OneDrive data and SharePoint site data) is key. Many times, people can forget about packing up Microsoft 365 data but at AccuNet, we have a solution that is affordable.
When was the last time you did any employee training on security or technology? Training can not only decrease the risk of a security breach, it can help with communication and increase productivity. If your employees haven’t been fully trained, you might not be optimizing your workforce because they don’t know how to fully use the features and functions of your technology.
Businesses, even small ones, are vulnerable to hackers. It’s just a fact. In 2022 alone, there were more than 4000 publicly disclosed data breeches. It’s a problem that isn’t going away. Securing your infrastructure is critical to protecting your business and this year is the year to make it happen. So, how do you make your business less vulnerable to a cyber attack?
There are some things you can do, such as enable multifactor authentication (MFA) and train your employees to watch for phishing or other scams. An IT company can do an audit and recommend changes as well.
Make 2023 the year you make technology resolutions – and stick to them!
