Letter from CEO David Levy
I have been working with technology for over three decades. I have witnessed and marveled, first-hand, at the enormous benefits brought to our world through the computer and the internet. Who would have thought that the entire planet’s body of knowledge could be delivered to individuals and businesses – merely upon request? Read: “Google it.”
However, with this incredible evolution comes an unfortunate, darker
side. The side of those who would take advantage, expose our weaknesses, and steal our hard work to either hold hostage or, worse yet, destroy years of diligent effort.
Every day, we hear stories of individuals and businesses falling prey to cyberattacks, scams and fraud. According to one study, 60% of cyberattacks were perpetrated against companies with less than 250 employees. Cyber criminals target this vulnerable group because they typically don’t have the proper defenses or resources.
An unfortunate misconception: The black box under your desk or that server in your closet is safe because it is on your site, within your reach, and behind your locked door. But the internet does not know about physical doors. Doors are not keeping your business safe. It just takes one unsuspecting employee to inadvertently click on a malicious link or access company data while on public WiFi to bring your whole business down and make years of data unrecoverable.
Our goal is not to make you fear technology. In fact, we want to help you embrace technology and leverage the benefits of the internet — the cloud — to help enhance your business and your life. Over the years, we’ve recognized that in order to keep yourself safe, you must stay up to date. But, many business owners may not fully understand what that really means. Many do not understand the benefits of the cloud and all it has to offer in keeping your business safe, secure and productive.
