Simple measures any business can take to improve their IT

A few new business trends could have a huge effect on the number of IT team members that a business needs to hire. If you’re part of one of those small businesses managing its own IT, take a look at these simple measures you can take to improve your IT efforts:

  • Train employees in data loss prevention

Did you know that the number-one cause for data loss among all business sizes was human error? Understandable. Humans are far more clumsy and careless than most creatures. Have you seen how agile and majestic most cats are?

To mitigate these issues, businesses should provide essential data loss prevention training that educates employees on the consequences of data loss.

Many businesses still handle all of their IT issues exclusively through email. While this might be comfortable for businesses that have done it for years, email doesn’t allow for efficient categorizing, delegating, and prioritizing IT support requests. An IT ticketing system can improve efficiency and help your team to prioritize tasks.
