By now, you’ve likely heard news of the Equifax breach last month that affected around 143 million records. The breach, including social security numbers, full names, birth dates, and even addresses, is just one example of how poor software security practices can harm and reflect poorly on a business. If your Dallas business doesn’t have a protocol for cybersecurity, it may be time to start looking for an outsourced IT provider who can help.

After Equifax revealed to the public that there was such a large data breach, it was quickly found that there was negligence on their part. Equifax confirmed that hackers entered their system in May through a web-application vulnerability that had a patch available in March. In other words, they had more than two months to take precautions that would have prevented the breach of millions of personal files. And if a breach this large can happen due to carelessness at such a well-known company, who’s to say it can’t happen to your small Dallas business with little-to-no cybersecurity and software support?
