The bad guys are getting creative with hybrid giftcard / CEO fraud scams. There is a massive campaign underway where fraudsters are impersonating an executive and urgently asking for gift cards to be bought for customers. The numbers need to be emailed or texted to the boss, after they are physically bought at stores.
Never comply with a request like this and always confirm using a live phone call to make sure it is not a scam. Sometimes it's OK to say "no" to the boss!
Businesses invest in technology because they recognize the benefits that the technology can bring to their operations and service offerings.
The unfortunate truth of the matter is that quite often, after the initial investment, that new shiny piece of technology equipment can lose its' luster. Just like cars need oil changes and inspections on a regular basis, the technology in your office needs regular reviews to keep them running smoothly... This is why your South Florida business needs an annual IT Audit!
We all intend to do it every year, yet only the strong-willed follow through. I’m talking about our New Year’s Resolutions and this year I think the focus should be on the good health of the IT systems of our South Florida based businesses!
An IT Audit is performed by a third party and is an in-depth analysis of a company’s technical environment, including its existing computer applications, hardware infrastructure, IT plan and IT related personnel. The Audit results in a detailed written report and guide that recommend strategic business initiatives pertaining to rightsizing internal and external practices and systems. In a nutshell, the audit will help to uncover areas of concern and will offer solutions to fix these issues.
