Cybersecurity for startups: Don’t be the next cyber attack statistic.
30 January 2023
If you’re a startup, foundation, or dynamic business, you know that your people are your greatest asset. When they’re brought on board, they need to be able to work effectively and efficiently from day one.
You have an HR team to manage the process of hiring and firing, and great management ready to give great talent the inspiration to perform – but what about all of the technology tools and training that they need to succeed? That’s where we come in with employee onboarding.
We’ll ensure your new employee has all the tools they need to succeed. From the moment they open their laptop on their first day to the moment they close it for the last time, we’re here to make things easier.
A new employee’s first day should be filled with training and meeting their new teammates. Not battling with their new company laptop. We’ll ensure everything is up and running, from their accounts and passwords to the software they need to work.
Onboarding and offboarding is part of a startup life. People come and go, and sometimes you have to let multiple go at the same time while you rebuild your team for a change in the winds. The last thing you want to worry about is the security of the data on your corporate devices from a former employee.
We ensure that devices are properly locked and encrypted at the time of offboarding, and we can recover your assets to be wiped and reused in the future. We strive to make the offboarding process as painless as the day they started.
Absolutely. We’re more than happy to help you with any technology decision you face. After discussing your long-term goals and what needs you have, we can give you recommendations on what technology we think would work best for your organization. If you have a particular device you’re set on, we’ll work with you to make it fit. Onboarding and employee offboarding is only part of what we do.
We run into this situation more often than you might think! Most people have gravitated towards Windows or Apple their whole lives, and it can be daunting to switch systems at your new job. We can lead group and individual training sessions for your employees, helping them familiarize themselves with the tips and tricks to working efficiently and effectively.
We get it. Not every parting is going to be on the best of terms. And even if it is, sometimes the data they handle is too sensitive to risk exposure. We excel at remote device management, so we can lock and secure any employee device at a given date and time. If you’re having difficulty with recovery, we have measures in place to locate and recover your organization’s device, perfect for cybersecurity-conscious organizations with former employees that are a security risk.
Many MSPs require you to use their preferred mail apps, software, meeting apps, or even rent devices directly from them. That’s not us. We take your organization where it is and help you improve. If you like Apple instead of Windows, great. Let’s work with that. If you use Microsoft Teams instead of Slack, fine by us. Let’s get you set up safely and correctly.
