Plenty of people make New Year’s resolutions, but does your company? The beginning of a new year can be the perfect time to break some of your business’s bad habits, minimize business risk and boost benefits – all while being an easier resolution to keep than going to the gym every day!
Bad Business Habits
Every business has some bad habits, but when it comes to risk management, it’s important to know where you can improve without too much effort, stress, or cost. In fact, some of your company’s bad habits might be putting sensitive data at risk, and that’s a big deal–but luckily, it’s not difficult to fix. All you need to do to minimize business risk is identify bad habits and replace them with better, stronger ones so that this new year is your best one yet.
Bad habit: overlooking software updates
It can be a pain to install software updates all the time, and it’s easier just to put it off, right? Wrong. Although you don’t necessarily need to keep up with every new hardware upgrade, it’s critical to keep your software up-to-date at all times–not only because that will make it easier when you do want to upgrade, but because outdated software leaves you vulnerable to digital attacks.
Bad habit: underestimating technical support needs
Most companies like to think that they’ve got their tech under control and that they don’t need any outside help, but unfortunately, thinking like this is a pretty bad habit–especially since it can cause chaos when big problems come up. IT services is just one example of an IT solution that can save money and maximize efficiency, all while taking stress off your shoulders.
Bad habit: Inadequate security
Getting comfortable with inadequate security is one of the most dangerous bad habits any company can have. It’s crucial to know what your security needs are, including printers and mobile devices, and to be able to meet them.
