Why We Need To Pay Attention

There are certain things the corporate world, and particularly the investment world, doesn’t need to hear about. Growth, profitability, and a company’s ‘vision’ to expand are all buzzwords propagated via marketing team, PR agencies and keynote addresses. What they really need to do is to make sure their systems are optimized for discovering what a profitable business can do.

This is where a good system administrator can make a real difference. In fact, if you’ve got a virus, or a malicious piece of code stable in your server room, you need a good and reliable system administrator. System administrators are often viewed as being lock-down people, whose responsibilities include keeping the server room clear of viruses, and malicious code. If your system contains a sensitive data breach, you’ll face challenges from bruised egos to public embarrassment when the awful truth comes out.

Unless you have a good administrator, you’ll find yourself in difficult positions. First, you’ll have to face the fact that the past mistakes are going to be your undoing. Second, you’ll have to learn the lesson that although you can’t always be rid of the past, you can learn from it and do it better the next time.

These are really good and reliable people who do a lot of great jobs for you. Unfortunately, they can get caught up in the wrong direction at times. With that in mind, here are some of the things that you must know to protect yourself and your business:

Does the past prove that your system is secure?

It’s a tricky situation altogether. On one hand, you have to feel relieved that things are not as they seem and on the other, you feel robbed of the things that were promised to you. But the truth is that both feelings are true.

Some of the scams online are simple ones where they trick you into believing that if you sign up they’ll make things easier for you. Things like free software can help increase your productivity. While I certainly agree that any software is worth a shot, one should be wary of what it asks of you. It’s a good idea to check out the company and make sure that they’re giving away things for free before you sign up for anything.

If you find an interesting business online that has things sounding too good to be true, avoid them at all costs.

A good way to learn is to put yourself in the shoes of the seller and try to determine whether or not what they’re telling you is true. If you feel that it is, then you’ve got to ask them to tell you more. If you keep an open mind and an open heart, and really try to understand what they’re saying, then you can come to your own conclusions.

Get the seller’s contact information

Ask them for a phone number and a mailing address. Get back with some good, solid information. While it’s not necessary that you buy from this seller, it’s a plus to have them aware of your interest.

Make sure they’re licensed

In the purchasing business, we all know that it’s a good idea to ask a person what authority they’re licensed to practice. If the seller is unlicensed, then you need to ask the seller to show you their license.

Even if the seller is telling the truth, it doesn’t hurt to wonder if they’re really in a position to ship goods. Are they really shipping internationally when they say they’re only shipping to countries within the borders of the United States?
