3 Reasons Network Security Should Be a Top Priority for Your Business

When you run your own business, tech-related concerns like network security might not exactly top your list of concerns, but they should. The more critical digital data becomes as far as how we do business in the first place, the more important it also becomes to make sure that data is safe and secure. The following are just a few of the many reasons why network security should be a key concern for your business going forward.

3 Reasons Network Security Should Be a Top Priority for Your Business

1. Identity Theft

Stealing and abusing a person’s identity these days is as simple as hacking into their network. If yours isn’t adequately protected, any and all sensitive information linked to your business is potentially at risk. This includes your financial data, as well as the personal details of everyone who works for your company. The data and records your clients are trusting you with are at risk too, so the reputation of your business could ultimately be at stake.

2. Viruses and Malware

If you’ve ever had to deal with a really bad malware infection, then you don’t need to be told how stressful it can be. At best, such occurrences really set you back when it comes to your already lengthy to-do list, but they can easily cost you a fortune in valuable data and resources. When you run your own business, you can’t afford to put your system at risk that way.

3. Healthier Bottom Line

Knowing you need to pay more attention to network security is one thing, but knowing where to start is another. Investing in resources like professional network security consulting can actually save you a fortune in the long run. You get to enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing your system is as well protected as it possibly can be. You’ll know you’re doing your very best to safeguard your team members, employees, and clients as well. Start looking into your options and experience the difference firsthand.

Today’s Fast-Paced Work Search Environment

These days, people who want to stay employed are really learning how to “do the hustle,” as far as finding work goes. Where in decades past, (when life was admittedly paced a little bit slower) many people stayed with the same company for their entire work lives, today people are known to move around much more, and to change roles and positions frequently. The good news for people who want to stay busy and work continually is that there are employment agencies in etobicoke that are geared towards getting people seasonal and part-time work to help fill in those less than busy times.

Today Fast-Paced Work Search Environment

Being Proactive In The Workplace

These days, the reality is that people who want to stay busy in their careers have to take a very proactive approach to work, as sitting back and “waiting for the phone to ring” just doesn’t really cut it anymore. Gone are the days when a great career could be launched by sending out ten resumes and waiting for the phone to ring. Today people need to use every resource at their disposal to keep work steadily coming in, whether that means checking online job boards constantly or even posting on social media about a job search.

Getting Online

Older workers today need to realize that we’re in a brave new world to stay, as far as online work goes. Sites like Linkedin are a way for a person to promote and advertise themselves and discuss their ideas for marketing and business ideas, but ultimately the site is really about connecting with potential employers. Some people also create sites that promote their own work portfolio, which is especially useful for those in creative fields like the visual or performing arts. This, along with a Linkedin profile, is a good way to get your name out there, especially because those sites will show up in online searches by potential employers.

There’s no question that today’s job market is an intensely competitive one, but the smart money is on workers who stay proactive and use every resource available in their work search.

How to Save Money on Health Insurance

Your health is your most precious commodity. Without it, nothing else really matters. This is why it is so important that you have health insurance. Even if you are seemingly young and healthy, something could go wrong at any minute, like illness or injury, that could lead to you having huge medical bills down the road. This is something you definitely want to avoid because medical debt is one of the biggest causes of financial strife in America today.How to Save Money on Health Insurance

If you are shopping for medical insurance, it only stands to reason that you want to get the best prices possible. Of course, you want to do this without sacrificing any level of coverage too. How do you do that? If you are new to shopping for medical coverage, use these money-saving tips to help guide you.

Three Tips to Save Money on Health Insurance
1. Be Healthy – This is something you probably want to do anyway, but leading a healthy lifestyle can go a long way towards helping you save money on health insurance. In many cases, insurers will add surcharges for those that smoke because they are a health risk to themselves.

2. Needs – Don’t overbuy and pay a premium that is more than you need. If you go to the doctor a lot, you probably want to choose a plan with higher premiums, which will lower your annual deductible. If you only go for your annual checkup, you want a higher deductible which will lead to a lower recurring monthly cost.

3. Incentives – Many employers offer incentives to those who lead healthy lifestyles. For instance, you may get a reduction if you undergo certain tests that indicate you are not at risk for serious problems in the near future. One popular test like this is a biometric screening.

Using these three tips will give you a great headstart towards saving money on your healthcare costs. The next time you are getting quotes from providers of health insurance Lodi CA has to offer, ask about all of their plans to see which one best fits your lifestyle and your budget. Leave no stone unturned when it comes to healthcare.

Why Term Life Insurance is Often More Affordable Than Similar Policies

Term life insurance has become a popular kind of life insurance due to how it typically has the best rates at first and it’s easy to understand. You pay regular fees—called your “premium”—to help make sure your beneficiary will be paid a set amount when you pass away. This kind of insurance can offer financial protection to make your family’s future more stable or it may just help take care of your last expenses. People are often astonished at how affordable term life insurance options can be and how simple you can protect your loved ones—even if you are over 50 years of age.Why Term Life Insurance is Often More Affordable Than Similar Policies

What Exactly is Term Life Insurance?
The most significant aspect to keep in mind as you’re buying term life insurance is the word “term” indicates a span of time. Your coverage concludes if you come to a specified age or the end of your “term.” Contrary to whole life insurance, term life generally doesn’t have any cash value. Term policies can sometimes be changed to permanent life insurance—also called whole life—to have protection last until after your term life insurance finishes.

If you buy term life insurance, the premium is going to be reached by such factors as:

• Your age

• Coverage amount

• Gender

• Medical history

Premiums are normally lower to start out with than those of permanent life insurance and rise over time.

Why is it Beneficial to Buy Term Life Insurance?
An extremely compelling reason to purchase term life insurance is its rates can be lower initially than whole life insurance rates. You might notice that term life insurance provides a greater degree of financial security for the cost. The simplicity and cost are both advantageous. Even though there is usually no cash value, term life policies are often worth the tradeoff—it can give a large sum of cash down the road for a more affordable initial premium in the present.

TRAFFIC TIP TUESDAY 02-19-19

Ticketing Aggressive Cars and Truck (T.A.C.T.)
Starting February 23rd and ending March 8th

The Hernando County Sheriff’s Office will be conducting a campaign targeting aggressive driving behaviors in both commercial vehicle drivers and passenger vehicle drivers.
Aggressive driving is defined in Florida State statues under chapter 316.1925 as drivers committing two or more of the following acts simultaneously or in succession:
(1) Exceeding the posted speed as defined in s. 322.27(3)(d)5.b.
(2) Unsafely or improperly changing lanes as defined in s. 316.085.
(3) Following another vehicle too closely as defined in s. 316.0895(1).
(4) Failing to yield the right-of-way as defined in s. 316.079, s. 316.0815, or s. 316.123.
(5) Improperly passing as defined in s. 316.083, s. 316.084, or s. 316.085.
(6) Violating traffic control and signal devices as defined in ss. 316.074 and 316.075.

Fine amounts start at $164.00 and in many cases they are doubled; 4 points are also assessed to your driver’s license and in some cases more can be added per violation.

Deputies will be taking a zero tolerance stance on aggressive drivers with the intention of reducing fatal crashes as part of the Ticketing Aggressive Cars and Truck (T.A.C.T.).

Deputies will be looking for dangerous driving behaviors like following too closely, unsafe lane change and speeding violations committed by truck and car drivers.

The TACT campaign will also focus on educating drivers on how to share the road safely with commercial vehicles. Here are some tips offered by Florida Department of transportation website on how to safely share the road with semi trucks:

Tips on how to safely interact with large trucks:

• Don’t cut off trucks. Total stopping distance is very different for a large truck than a passenger car. When you pass a large truck allow a car length for every 10 mph you are traveling. Cutting it close with a truck can cut your life short.
• Stay out of the truck’s blind spots/No Zones. Trucks have very large blind spots.
• Keep a safe distance. While it is never safe to tailgate any vehicle on the highway, following too close is particularly dangerous around large trucks and buses because the size of these vehicles prevents you from seeing the road ahead and having sufficient time to react to slowing or stopped traffic or another obstacle.
• Only change lanes when you can see both of the truck’s headlights in your rearview mirror.
