I think by now we’ve all come to realize that computer security is essential in today’s hacker age, but what does your tech support do to secure your network? These three common business functions are areas that tech support works to control.
- Email – it has become the primary form of business communication, which means propriety business information is flowing back and forth all day long. The email includes internal and external communication. If you don’t have an email filter in place, they can be easily hacked. If an email is breached, your tech support team needs to make sure that all other in-house accounts remain secure from that threat.
- Online Searches – some members of the group are required to venture online to complete searches, while others might do a little side research not thinking it will harm anything. Either way, your system needs to have a firewall or web content filtering in place to make sure those contaminated links don’t infect your network because if they do, it can spread throughout your entire system.
- Cloud Applications – more and more of the programs you and your employees use are cloud-based, which means there is a greater chance for your business to get a virus. Even the most secure organizations have some small hole that a hacker can exploit if they try hard enough. Your tech support team is there to monitor your system and fix problems as they occur. They also are in place to find problems before they happen too.
