Business consultants, as a rule, provide guidance to improve an organization’s performance and efficiency. As IT Consultants, our role is to analyze the technology at your business or practice, to identify current or potential issues, and create solutions. We do this without an interruption to the operations of your organization. In many cases, we can identify areas for improved efficiency and security. In this article, we will be discussing how an IT Consultant can help your business.
In the last three years, hackers have increased the number of attacks and have gotten creative with where and how they are accessing information. TechRadar reports, “Hackers have revived a decade old Microsoft Office security issue.” Attempts to take advantage of the vulnerability were up 400% just in the second quarter of 2020. That’s just one software version. Imagine all the other platforms, programs, and apps that are at risk.
Protect sensitive client information when you hire an IT Consultant.
- Security. IT Consulting includes identifying potential areas where hackers may access HIPAA sensitive information, or confidential client information. Identity theft is among the most popular reasons hackers are hard at work. Another is malware attacks where the hackers ask for money in exchange for releasing data back to businesses or hospitals. While you may think there is enough security with firewalls and long, complicated passwords that are changed on a regular basis, hackers are becoming savvier about how they are getting sensitive information. As professional IT Consultants, we review your existing security, and may recommend additional measures to secure data.
- Process Improvement. Tired of using multiple platforms to get information from one place to another, simply to run your practice? Are your employees frustrated at network and system inefficiencies? Hiring an IT Consultant can make you look like a superhero to your employees by consolidating data and implementing a streamlined, secure system for ease of workflows. Not only that, but in many cases, we save our clients money by reducing costs and boosting performance of people and technology.
- Scalability. Are you ready to move to a larger office and/or hire more employees? Can your current IT systems move up with you? In many cases, systems are not scalable. They were designed with a smaller team in mind. Technology has improved to allow for scalability. When you work with us, we review current systems, suggest updates, and work within your budget to create solutions to grow with your business or practice.
