When a company fails to provide protection, it can create the sort of devastating image that simply can't be recovered from.
Duluth, GA (Vocus) January 7, 2010
IT support firm Guidance Consulting almost always recommends a full IT workup for businesses in all stages of development. However, in today's economic climate, these kinds of services are being cut back along with employee jobs, raises, and bonuses. Guidance Consulting senior consultant Ronald Gottilla asserts that while this type of situation isn't ideal, a one-time IT consulting service is better than doing nothing at all.
“Information security isn't something that most companies should do on their own,” says Gottilla. “When you're talking about securing personal information for your employees, clients, and customers, relying on free software or outdated security measures simply isn't enough protection.”
This has never been more true than in today's global online community, where viruses and hackers are on the rise and companies are being held liable for breaches of security that could have been prevented through quality IT support. “There's a big concern out there for loss of company reputation, as well,” adds Gottilla. “When a company fails to provide protection, it can create the sort of devastating image that simply can't be recovered from.”
While real information security requires more than a one-time setup or consultation – often requiring system assessments, policy management, employee training, and regular upgrades – simply putting any layer of professional protection up is a step in the right direction.
“Even that most basic security setup is going to do something,” advises Gottilla. “And here at Guidance Consulting, we can actually perform a perfunctory assessment during our initial meeting or conversation. That should give business leaders an idea of how much they might need to allocate from their budget for future IT needs.”
