What is a vCIO?

Richard Berger

Technology has become integral to running nearly every business. As companies grow, they eventually need someone to manage that technology. Above and beyond mere maintenance of technology, businesses need a person to be responsible for driving the business forward utilizing new technologies and for streamlining the company’s existing systems and processes. Inevitably, someone in the company will fall into this role, usually the CFO (Chief Financial Officer), CEO (Chief Executive Officer), or business owner. However, these people will likely not be optimized for this technology role because most CFOs and CEOs are not interested in managing IT, let alone being the driving force championing technological advancements. Furthermore, these are highly paid employees and adding any roles to their job description splits their time, making them less productive at their primary role.

Old Passwords Are A Massive Cybersecurity Risk; Here is Why.

Richard Berger

Here at My IT, we use tools to actively monitor the dark web for data breaches concerning our clients. We then present that information to our clients so they can act on it in a timely manner. This is all well and good, but often I hear the argument that information on old data breaches isn’t worth their time. Executives say those passwords have been reset or that that email is no longer in use. Another objection is that if hackers have not used that information by now, then they either won’t use it, or they already tried, and the info is no longer valid. However, there is a flaw in that logic.

How Natural Disasters Impact Businesses

Guest Author

Business owners can spend many sleepless nights worrying about the myriad disasters that can strike their companies. Will there be a labor dispute? Will the server go down tomorrow? Is an employee going to say something stupid on social media? In any case, being prepared and having a plan for these disasters is key to weathering the storm for any business. However, there’s one type of disaster that shockingly few businesses seem to have detailed plans to deal with, and it’s pretty obvious when you think about it. Many businesses only think about natural disasters in the context of how they’ll get their employees to safety in the moment, but they don’t consider all of the lasting impacts those disasters can have on their ongoing operations.
