Five Faulty Assumptions Small Business Owners Make about IT

If you manage a small business, you probably have a broader-than-average list of things to worry about than a typical corporate professional does. However, there are a few IT-related assumptions that, left unchecked, can turn into urgent crises. Do any of these statements sound familiar?

  1. PCs are throwaway items, so I don’t need to repair them.
  2. I’m too small for anyone to want my data. I don’t need to spend money on security.
  3. I can take care of things myself.
  4. I haven’t had a problem for years. Why should I worry about it now?
  5. It’s too expensive.

Even if you think you’re covered, you may be surprised to discover that there’s a cost or security exposure.
