When I first started this business, both of us didn’t have a website.
Back then no one utilized a website! We had a cellphone, a sign, plus the good word of our clients.
So I do appreciate the way that the internet has given small businesses such as mine to grow plus reach faraway markets, it also brings myself and others a host of new worries. I was barely able to construct a website, even with my kid helping me, it’s just too complicated! After it was up plus running it had to be inspected plus replaced weekly, plus it also had to be fortified, and cybersecurity is completely real, plus honestly pressing, plus how it works is better than magic. My kid is amazing, plus honestly smart with website design plus coding, however this cybersecurity stuff is not in his purview. He provided myself and others the name of an seasoned friend he knew, who had started entirely working as a cybersecurity consultant for a major corporation, plus I reached out that young woman via email. She was great about talking myself and others through a few of the intricacies of data security plus risk management without making it too hard to understand. She understood that I was only going to be able to absorb so much information, so she broke cybersecurity down to its major components. I would do best to have a program installed to make sure I have good data encryption, so I could collect data plus take applications via the website, plus supply some level of data security for the shoppers. This is not the highest level data security, however it’s more than I have now, plus buys myself and others a little time to get more security in place.
