Security
What’s the biggest technology security problem that Canadian entrepreneurs face?

If you said computer hackers, guess again. The biggest problems by far come from a company’s own employees. The good news: They’re usually not doing it on purpose.

Most of the security breaches involve accidents: an employee mistakenly emailing confidential client information outside the company; a cashier leaving a customer’s credit card information on a publicly viewable computer screen; or a manager inadvertently deleting important files.

One of the most common breaches: accidentally downloading malware — those nasty computer viruses and Trojan horses that can cause mayhem in your computer network. Also very common: neglecting to back up data regularly.

Danielle Sullivan has been a great resource to me with my business. Danielle is very intuitive, and understands what Lil' Angel Gifts means to me, and where I want to go with my vision. She's taken the initiative to recommend specific training and resources, things that have helped me tremendously. I will continue to look to her for advice and resources, as well as share future accomplishments with her, so she can keep cheering me on :)
