|Do you secure your private information?|
The Internet has become ingrained in nearly everything we do. There are many people who are barely disconnected these days. While this development is great for companies, that arguably get more out of employees as a result, there is a downside. In general, people are more than willing to share their personal and private information online. This can ruin reputations, or worse still, open you to identity theft, risks which highlight the need to secure your online information.
Here’s three things you can do to help secure your personal data shared online.
1. Realize your online actions are risky
For example, here’s a great article written in the middle of February about how different age groups react to Facebook changes, and if they take steps to minimize who can view their personal data. It’s kind of interesting to see that the younger generations take more steps to secure their profiles than their parents, yet you still see people with reputation damaging pictures that can be viewed by anyone.
2. Take matters into your own hands
3. Encourage others to think

|Is IT outsourcing for me?|
In the developed world, outsourcing is commonly seen in two very different ways: Employees see it as a threat to job security, while companies often see it as way to capitalize on less costly labor markets. There’s little doubt that many businesses could benefit from some form of outsourcing. Why not start with one of the areas many managers and owners feel least comfortable with: IT.
|Prey tracks your important devices|
The number of tech gadgets we own has been growing, as has the number of criminals targeting high value goods like laptops and smartphones. While it is more likely to not happen, there is still a chance your laptop or phone could be stolen or go missing. When it does, you could lose important data, especially if you use this for your work too. To help increase the chances of finding your device you can install a program that tracks it.
|Is your BCP resilient?|
One of the major objectives of almost every business is to remain operational. From time-to-time there might be factors, such as a natural disaster, that could put your company at risk. To mitigate this threat, companies have started to adopt a Business Continuity Plan with the aim of being able to recover from such disastrous events.
