IT Generalists Should NOT Be In Charge Of Your Cybersecurity… Here’s Why.

Video Transcription

You wouldn’t hire your CFO to do your taxes, would you?

My CFO doesn’t do our taxes.
When it comes to cybersecurity, try your best if at all possible to work with an expert or team of experts.
So I would just say whether you’re a small business owner, or whether you’re an MSP when it comes to cybersecurity, the differences are so great that it’s important to partner with people who did just that.
It will be better for everybody and longterm will be more cost effective than trying to do it yourself.
