A new year is almost upon us, and many people are coming up with “New Year’s resolutions” — pledges to accomplish a personal or professional goal, or to improve someone’s life. Whatever the intention may be, it’s important to be realistic and stay focused on what needs to be accomplished.
The year is quickly coming to a close, and it’s time for your business to evaluate how it did. This includes identifying aspects that worked well and those that need improvement. For instance, you may find that your current managed IT services provider (MSP) won’t be able to keep up with your anticipated business requirements or is currently failing to deliver their promised level of service to your company.
Cyberattacks are becoming more dangerous these days, and it’s not just large enterprises that are falling victim to them. In fact, 43% of cyberattacks are now targeting small businesses. This is because cybercriminals are taking advantage of small companies that don’t have the resources for extensive security solutions.
Multifactor authentication (MFA) is currently one of the most effective ways to secure an online account. Entering usernames and passwords is the default way of accessing accounts, but MFA adds one more requirement to authenticate the identity of a person logging in, such as having to enter a one-time smartphone code.
With digital technologies now playing a crucial role in business operations, the need to protect those assets is greater than ever. Online transactions and other digital platforms are all potential gateways for cyberattacks conducted by financially motivated hackers.
