When you just want IT to work!

There are a lot of computer shops out there that you can call up to fix an issue or install a piece of equipment. They might be able to get you out of crisis mode, but they aren’t looking at the full picture.

We believe (and have proven) that if you proactively manage technology, run maintenance religiously, and monitor a business network, everyday issues and downtime will be greatly reduced.

This is what makes us different than your typical tech support company. Sure, we can fix computer issues when you have them, but our specialty is preventing them in the first place.

      Facebook’s Massive Data Leak

      What’s the Issue?

      The current situation didn’t start recently, but at the beginning of April, some 533 million Facebook records were leaked by hackers for free on the dark web. Over half a billion users have had their personal information, including Facebook ID, corresponding phone numbers, birthdates, some email addresses, relationship status, and bio, dumped into a public database online. 

      Facebook confirmed that the data was from a 2019 data leak, and that they have long since patched the vulnerability used to obtain it. That’s a good thing, but it’s still concerning that two years after a major data leak, the data, which was for sale for the past two years, was just dropped on the web for free. Obviously, the tech giant wants the narrative to be that this is old data and they have since made the changes necessary to protect their massive amount of user data, but the fact that it is still available is the bigger issue.

      Once Data is Leaked, It’s Out There Forever

      We may not really know the tangible value of the data found in this massive database. What we do know is that once data is leaked, it’s going to cause some consternation for Facebook, because:

      • One of Facebook’s major revenue streams revolves around transactions with this data.
      • This data is out there for free.
      • It was likely obtained from a hacking tactic called scraping.

      Your company doesn’t have the huge amount of data that Facebook has, but you have the same responsibilities with the sensitive data you have. If Facebook wasn’t, you know, Facebook (that being a platform that is typically used to share data) they wouldn’t be able to simply shrug off something like this. We can say with confidence that a data leak of nearly a quarter of your client base’s data would come with massive repercussions for your business. 

      That’s why you need to ensure that you have the tools in place so that you don’t have to deal with data theft, loss of customer confidence, and all the other negative variables that come with a data breach. If you would like to find out more about how Techworks Consulting can help you secure your business’ and customers’ data, reach out to us today at 631-285-1527.

      What Options Do SMBs Have for Their Server Hosting?

      First, you need to consider what you need the hosted computing for. If, for instance, you plan to host your own infrastructure solutions and have an established history of success in doing so, moving to the cloud would likely only complicate matters unnecessarily. However, this is not to say that the cloud couldn’t be helpful—particularly if you’re introducing new services to your workforce or trying to expand your business’ resources.

      Here, we’ll compare each alternative.

      In-House Servers

      Despite cloud technology now giving businesses a real alternative to purchasing and maintaining local servers, doing so can still offer many businesses some serious benefits. First and foremost, you must consider the control that complete ownership brings with it. While expensive, owning your own infrastructure gives you the freedom to approach each element precisely how you want to.

      An in-house server setup can also be beneficial to a business whose Internet connectivity isn’t the fastest or most reliable. Furthermore, their local nature lends itself well to a business that is held to some compliance standards where data security is involved. While cloud servers certainly don’t lack in security, moving data through an intranet is inherently more secure than moving it through the Internet.

      Cloud Servers

      Cloud servers are great for the business that needs to keep its options open without breaking the bank in the process. With virtual environments available to meet every need, the costs of sustaining the physical infrastructure are greatly diminished. This makes the cloud an effective and affordable way for a small business to get whatever resources they need for a more predictable rate.

      As a result of this, cloud servers are more scalable than self-hosted servers as a rule. With no chance of underutilizing the hardware you invest in; your business can dictate precisely what it needs and pay for that access accordingly. The main impetus at that point becomes ensuring the security of your data as it moves back and forth.

      Whichever option is right for you, Techworks Consulting is here to help you make your selection and handle it for you. To learn more about what we can provide, give us a call at 631-285-1527.

      Should Your Business See a Bigger Role for IT?

      Communication

      Communication is well-known to be a crucial aspect of any business’ success, so it only makes sense that leveraging the capabilities that today’s tech offers is a strategy that so many organizations have embraced. With so many options now available—including Voice-over-Internet-Protocol telephony and video conferencing, email, and other all-encompassing collaboration platforms—businesses have the means to boost their productivity readily available.

      Many of these communication platforms are unified, giving you and your team access to a comprehensive suite of tools to use. That way, your investment goes much further and is more guaranteed to provide you with the return you need and expect.

      Automation

      The easiest way to expand the role IT plays in your business is to embrace automation. Today’s software provides the opportunity to improve your business by shifting its priorities. Automation can take the mandatory tasks that create workflow and coordination within the separate departments of your business and remove the need to assign human resources to complete them. This allows your staff to focus on the revenue generating parts of their job while removing the time and effort that is typically required to support that coordination and efficient operations. This shift in strategy can really provide some stark benefits when trying to create a more effective workflow. 

      Some of the parts of your business that can be improved by utilizing automation include: 

      • Inventory Management
      • Security
      • Supply chain management
      • Sales and marketing 
      • Customer relationships

      ...and more.

      By committing to automating certain rote, yet mandatory tasks, you can expect more productive endeavors to be successful. That’s the name of the game in business.

      Security

      Security is seemingly everyone’s favorite answer when asked what you should be investing more of your business’ capital in. There is a good reason for that: there are more threats than ever. SMBs account for half of all cyberattacks, so it is important to put the solutions in place to solve the cybersecurity problems your organization faces. Some strategies you should consider include:

      • Regular risk assessments
      • Comprehensive staff training
      • Penetration testing
      • Network, server, and website audits
      • Additional software investments

      Successfully accomplishing those strategies will help you reduce and eliminate:

      • Theft (money, service, data)
      • System corruption
      • Regulatory and compliance fines
      • Legal fees
      • Loss of customer confidence
      • Loss of intellectual property
      • Damage to reputation
