I’ll be upfront with you. Most SMBs are as I like to say, “IT foolish”. Why do I say that? A recent report from Switchfast Technologies have found that 51% of SMB owners are persuaded that their businesses are not a target for cybercrime.

Yes, you read that right.

How could we anticipate that SMBs will enhance their digital cleanliness when we can’t persuade them that they’re a target in the first place? Many SMBs believe that after their initial IT infrastructure is installed and configured, their security is guaranteed requiring no further interaction. This ignorance, straight from the owner trickles down to the most common endpoint security risk. Untrained employees. As a result, employees with often make decisions they believe are harmless, such as opening up a malicious email attachment from what they think as a legitimate source.

So how can Global Computer Systems help?
