Cybersecurity Best Practices for 2023 and Beyond

As a small business owner, cybersecurity is likely one of the last things on your mind. You’ve downloaded antivirus software, you trust that sending information over emails is safe, you don’t plan to get hacked, and you have an IT guy so what is there to worry about?

Most “IT guys” are often reactive to problems, rather than providing you with proactive protection. It’s not necessarily their fault, it’s simply a symptom of their business model; they only make money when they’re doing projects or reactive troubleshooting. Even if they help install good antivirus and backup software, if no one pays attention to it for months at a time, they may not work for you at the most inconvenient time.

When you get hacked and need to wait on your IT guy, you may experience significant downtime, lost sales, and even worse, may even lose critical data or compromise your customer’s data privacy. And that is assuming your IT guy is available in a crisis to help and not just ghost you. “I’ll just call my IT guy” is not the solution your business needs.
