You may consider yourself a DIY expert. That ability can certainly save you money when you’re fixing something around the house. However, when it comes to your office and business – don’t be tempted to DIY your network or cybersecurity. It doesn’t matter how manyYouTube videos you watch to show you how to secure your company’s data, business technology is not the best way to test your DIY skills.
Handling your IT is not a one-person job. It is safer to invest and put your trust into a professional IT team. Maintaining your company’s network is not just installing software updates; it really needs to be a well-planned and managed effort. There is a great amount of time and background knowledge involved in planning and executing a network system, plus a high level of expertise required to keep all the pieces of your network current and working together smoothly. Handling yourIT is also not just a 9-5 job; your system needs to be monitored and protected 24/7! A third-party team of IT experts will put the right tools in place to monitor your system around the clock. And finally, employees need to be trained on best practices and how to help protect data as well.
An IT service company will also ensure that your business is consistently in compliance with evolving laws and regulations. The cost to hire experts will far outweigh the cost to try to remedy lost data or reputation management should a breach of security happen.
