Don’t Make Security Harder for Your Business

While it may be tough for small businesses to optimize their security, it is not any less important. When it comes to security, your employees may be absentmindedly working against it, because of their predispositions and cognitive biases they have toward it. Let’s discuss how to pick the best security solutions.

Jumping on the Bandwagon

When another company begins using more complicated or new security solutions, you might want to as well, but this should not be the case. Many security tools do not deserve your blind trust, even if it seems they are absolutely safe and secure.

With everyone praising a certain form of security, it is easy to assume they are all right and begin to use this in your own practice. We urge you to think differently. No matter what, you should always be critical of the security solutions you are choosing and should try to identify any problems that come with them before you invest in them. Even if there are no issues, you should still make sure that the security solution would work will for your business before choosing it.

Confirmation Bias

It can be easy to ignore information you don’t want to see. If it seems like a solution won’t work well for your business, you might ignore these signs because you are already sure that this is the best solution on the market.You might even believe that your business will be an exception to the rule. You should instead always assume the worst and look at your security options realistically to see if they are a good fit.

Relying Too Much on Business Jargon

While it may seem important to know all of the tech-savvy lingo so you can discuss different security solutions with your IT professionals, jargon is less important than you might think. Always make sure you know exactly what you are talking about before you decide to choose a security solution, otherwise, you might not know what it is truly there to do.
