Many business owners and entrepreneurs start as what is now termed “solopreneurs”. Meaning they wear every hat in the business and handle every job. They are: “going it solo”, so to speak. Usually this entails purchasing what they deem to be a top-of-the-line computer that is already loaded with an anti-virus program. Many of us have felt safe and relied on these well known programs while we hit the ground running with our newly hatched business endeavors. Most of us never stop to think just how sophisticated virtual thieves have become. There was a time when you could tell right away if you had a virus or if something was amiss with your computer. However hackers have worked extremely hard to make sure that they can steal certain confidential data without your knowledge.
This is a serious business and costs business owners and even government agencies millions every year; not to mention the headaches and feelings of venerability that being hacked can cause. Business owners have to protect not only their company data, but maybe even more importantly, that of their clients. So what’s a person to do when it comes to protecting their business and their clients businesses? Well today we interviewed a veteran in the field of IT security: Monte Robertson. Monte has worked in IT since 1990 and in particular IT since the year 2000. He’s consulted with the FBI and is the CEO of “Security Software Solutions”. He is someone that we can all learn from when it comes to tips and tricks to make sure you’re protected at all times. You can listen to my interview with him, by clicking here.
