Repost from Safetydetectives.com In this SafetyDetectives interview with Greg Bibeau, Founder and CEO of Terminal B,…
These days, business owners have to be keenly aware of cyber threats and attacks, because not taking the right kind of precautions can literally cause you to lose a fortune, or to go out of business entirely. The headlines these days are full of news items about businesses which have been attacked, with data being compromised and possibly held for ransom by enterprising hackers. If you want to avoid the possibility of having to be bilked out of thousands of dollars of ransom money, or having some kind of malicious virus literally take control of your entire system, your best bet would be to seek out the cybersecurity services of knowledgeable and competent IT consultants.
How an IT Consultant can save your sanity
Here are some of the ways that working with a great IT security consultant can save you headaches, and possibly a ton of money besides:
Economic benefits – if you have a really small business, you might think hard about collaborating with an IT security consultant, but it will probably save you a ton of money in the long run. Your security measures will be emplaced more quickly, and will probably be done right the first time, and you can be confident that you have the best possible security solutions in place. Another benefit of working with an IT security consultant is that they can train your staff, so the element of human error can be reduced.
Saving time – there’s literally no time to waste when you’re trying to improve your cyber defenses. If you have this done by your own in-house staff, they’ll be subject to all kinds of distractions and you can expect the job to take considerably longer. Working with an IT consultant will get the job done much more quickly, because they will be focused on working with your business and nothing else.
Greater experience – you may have some in-house experience and knowledge from your existing personnel, but there is no question that an IT security consultant will have a greater level of knowledge and experience, and will be more focused on the task at hand. A consultant will be in possession of all current knowledge about emerging threats, which means they’ll be able to react better to protect your business-critical data from all known cyber threats.
Productivity – working with IT consultants will help to develop your own internal staff with regard to security procedures and in-house threats before they even occur. This will help to improve performance for your in-house personnel and upgrade their level of knowledge.
No oversell on unnecessary solutions – IT consultants are always focused on providing the best solution for your company. Knowing that there are no one-size-fits-all solutions, you can count on your solution being customized to your specific business needs. This can all be done at a very affordable cost, since there have been a number of recent advances in providing comprehensive IT security solutions.
Availability and convenience – one of the best things about working with IT consultants is that you have access to them literally around the clock. Any issues you might have during off hours can be quickly relayed to your consultant, and that person, or an alternative, will quickly address the issue so that it doesn’t get out of control. You’ll probably discover that working with an IT consultant gives you greater access and support than you would get from even your own in-house personnel.
