Intelligent Technology Advice – Protect Your Reputation, Train your People

train your people

Your business reputation is important; you should protect it properly and train your people!  Years of work go into building it, but it only takes one event to damage it.  We purchase business insurance coverage, and install security cameras, alarms, and all kinds of technology security “stuff.”  The issue is that we guard all the obvious areas and then open the back window!  A chain is only as strong as the weakest link, which is what you need to look for.

The weakest link in your security chain is your people.

The biggest risk to your business reputation comes from your people.  Humans have a way of doing some of the strangest things!  Intentional or not, your people may expose your business to reputation risk.  A business needs to provide training and protection for their people that minimizes this risk.

No amount of technology will overcome a human’s ability to make a bad decision, so train your people to help them make better decisions!

Providing cyber-security training for your people is a requirement in today’s business environment.  The threats delivered via email, web pages, and social media are too complex to be completely mitigated by technology alone.  The smartest piece of “software” in your business is your people!  Training and testing them will not only provide a higher level of protection for your business reputation, but it will also be valuable to them as citizens of today’s digital world!

At Stringfellow, we deliver ongoing cyber-security training and testing to all our Clients.  This is now part of our Intelligent Technology platform and should be considered part of any technology strategy for your business.  Contact Us today to learn more!
