Cyber Security Awareness

Episode 61 – Cyber Security Awareness

On the Profitable Joyful Consulting podcast, I teach you how to increase your profits and enjoy your business more. In this episode, you’ll learn cyber security practices to protect your business (and your clients’ businesses) from attack.

It’s our job as consultants to see the blind spots for our clients. Even if your particular speciality doesn’t have anything to do with security, this is a major area of vulnerability for clients and corporations of all sizes.

I live on Martha’s Vineyard, an island off the coast of Massachusetts. In the last couple of weeks, the ferry service that serves my little island was hit by a ransomware attack. At the same time, a former client of mine had her website taken offline by hackers. These cyber attacks point out something important: how many businesses are not prepared for an attack of this kind.

In this episode, I’m sharing a few simple actions and security measures you can take so you and your clients aren’t just sitting ducks waiting for a cyber attack.

Key areas discussed in this episode

  • Simple actions you can take now to protect yourself and your clients from cyber attacks
  • A key investment you can make to increase your cybersecurity
  • How to really learn good security practices
  • How to protect essential photos and documents so you can always recover them
  • Why it’s critical not to procrastinate on this

Honestly, there are some things that we have to do that are heinous tasks but we do them to please our future selves. Do this as a gift for your future self; do it as a gift for your clients.
