In fact, this could be the single most valuable thing I could give you, and I’m doing it for free. Here’s the scoop…

Because IT security is such an IMPORTANT topic, I’ve put together a series of biweekly IT security tips to show you and your employees how to drastically reduce your chances of being a victim of cybercrime.

Since we already to this for our clients, it doesn’t cost me anything to include you as well. Plus, I want to do everything I can to educate business owners and their employees about how to avoid being low-hanging fruit for cybercrime. I’ve seen the devastation firsthand and, believe me, you do NOT want to fall victim.

Seriously, these biweekly emails – and the strategies they contain – could save you from getting your bank account wiped out, getting your client’s personal information stolen, losing critical data and having your systems down for extended periods of time, not to mention the bad PR, civil and criminal lawsuits and fines that can result from a data breach.

Every other week we’ll focus on a single, simple thing you can do to avoid a data breach. These e-mails will come from me, and will have “IT Security Tip #X” in the subject line.

I’ll also alert you IMMEDIATELY if I see any new threats developing that you need to be on high alert for. Those e-mails will have the subject line “Urgent Security Alert: New Threat Detected” so you know to read those right away and remind all your employees to be on the lookout for that particular threat. They will detail what the threat is, and our recommendation on what you need to do to protect your organization.

If you would like your employees to opt in for these security tips and download a free report we’ve recently published on protecting yourself from cybercrime, forward this link to them: www.cybersecurity-tips.com

If you have any questions, just call me at 805-967-8744.

Happy Networking!

P.S. – If you want a more thorough approach to educating your employees about security best practices, I can also put together an acceptable use (AUP) for your company and train your employees on how to avoid data breaches and cyber-attacks.

I stopped by the Goleta Valley Chamber of Commerce Ribbon Cutting for Goleta’s newest hotel, Courtyard Marriott, last Thursday, August 23. I was playing around with video on my camera and decided to make a quick movie out of it. Check it out and enjoy!

Special thanks to Brian Peddicord for giving me some tips on doing videos and showing me some stuff with my camera too! You can check out his work at www.CreatedinSB.com

While watching the swimming and cycling Olympic events a few weeks back, I was amazed at the dedication of each and every participant. Then I suddenly had an ah-ha moment.

There are lessons that can be learned from Olympians that can be applied to anyone’s life, both personally and professionally.
