Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.

IT Security Tip #45: Is It Time For Cybersecurity Planning?

The time to start planning for a security threat isn’t during a virus outbreak or immediately after you discover funds transferred within your banking accounts. Decisions and judgments made during this time are typically driven by emotion and not facts. The time to make those cyberthreat plans is now.

Things to consider when you’re planning:

  • Physical access to your building(s)
  • What to do with lost or stolen mobile devices
  • PCI (payment card industry) compliance requirements
  • Data-breach incident response
  • Threat monitoring

That’s where we are here to help! Give us a call and we’ll be glad to help you evaluate your “cybersecure” plan. There are great resources out there for businesses that just don’t know where to start with cybersecurity. Take a look at www.fcc.gov/cyberplanner for a customizable guide to where to get started with operational and organizational planning.

PowerPoint: When Doing is Easier Than Explaining, Record a Screen Demo

Screen recording is a great way to create a webinar, lesson, or short demonstration.

PowerPoint puts your recording on a slide, or you can save it directly to a video file that you can share on YouTube.
