Small business IT professionals are trying to balance multiple priorities and finding that the balance often leaves the company they support with serious security risks.

IT professionals at small businesses face a number of competing priorities. They’re generally individuals or small teams charged to “provide it all,” from great customer user experience to company IT security. And 98% think the employees at their companies could be doing more to help on the security front.

Running a small business can be an expensive endeavour. You might be one of those lucky entrepreneurs who can afford to take risks, but it’s more realistic to think you’re like most small business owners, meaning you carefully review all critical decisions your team wants to make, choosing a recommended IT professional or friend who ultimately works with your organisation to choose the best software for your business.

Supporting these tools can be arduous in a competitive digital world where competing priorities lead also to competing objectives for improving security. The IT professional is normally a generalist and versatile in his approach to supporting a given business outcome , however with new emerging sophisticated threats and further pressures being imposed through compliance regulators leaves small business vulnerable to attack and that 82% of businesses owners say they have been exposed to a risk as a result of poor security hygiene.
