We’ve all experienced lost productivity due to technical difficulties. Slow-loading computers, bogged-down internet connections, printer issues, and dropped phone calls can turn what should be quick, everyday tasks into long, painful ones.
These issues are frustrating for everyone. But tuned-in business owners know that they’re not just frustrating; they’re costly. Lost productivity translates into fewer sales, less production, longer lead times on key data preparation—all of which ultimately mean a reduction in revenue and profits.
The natural question for business owners, then, is how much productivity—and how much profitability—is your company losing?
A business’s data is its most important asset. To protect it, companies hire IT services providers to put up firewalls, encrypt passwords, maintain anti-virus software, backup data, and more. It takes the most advanced hacker to break through these barriers outright. However, there are other ways to gain access to your data that bypass these obstacles. Some scammers use human psychology to dig their way in. The technology these people use is low tech, but the strategy is effective. Businesses should be aware of this type of security threat as well and do everything possible to guard against it.
