Stringfellow Technology Group, a premier provider of — IT Support and Consulting near Birmingham, has recently announced the release of their short cybersecurity guide for business owners. Available on the Stringfellow blog, the newly-published guide helps business owners understand the importance of having a solid business continuity plan in place as well as showing them a few things they can do right now to improve their own network security.
Kari Barnes, a representative of Stringfellow Technology Group, commented “According to a recent study conducted by technology giant IBM, the average cost of a data breach these days is nearly $4 million. Unfortunately, losing that kind of money has the potential to break a small or medium-sized business. What is even more unfortunate is that many company owners go about their business day in and day out with no idea that their business network could be at risk. Many of those who understand the threats out there in the cyber-world still have no idea what they can do to protect their network. These are the very reasons why we wrote and published this guide on our blog.”
In their new cybersecurity guide, the team at Stringfellow Technology Group gives readers five important steps they can start taking today to make their network just a little more secure. Stringfellow’s advice includes things like making use of password managers, ensuring timely updates for all network software, and using two-factor authentication whenever it is available. The Stringfellow team believes that these simple moves can make a world of difference when it comes to cybersecurity.
As Barnes goes on to say, “Having a business continuity plan in place in case of a data breach is definitely something that every business needs to look into. Our guide gives them a head start on achieving this goal. We hope that it will point them in the right direction as they seek to protect what they’ve worked so hard to build.”
