Top IT Tips for 2022

A New Year is a definitely a chance to kick things off the way you mean to go on.

Here is an ITA blog with some top tech tips for 2022 – obviously, ask us at CT Business Solutions about anything you like!

1. The Remote mobile working office is here to stay:

If Covid has taught us all one thing, it is the need for flexibility around how we work. Agility is fast becoming one of the key differentiators of a business’s success. Creating easy ways for your team to communicate by enabling an all-in-one solution for communication, collaboration, will ensure that you stay connected and productive.

2. Security, security, security!

We know we say it all the time, but Cyber threats aren’t going anywhere. Keep the focus on security in 2022, as every business, no matter the size is at risk. Don’t risk losing time and money to a data breach or ransomware., instead talk to your IT company about the following:

  • Getting a cybersecurity audit done.

  • Securing all email.

  • Have notifications for remote workers to know when they are connecting to unsafe networks.

  • Put a disaster recovery plan in place.

  • Ensure backups of all data are secure.

  • Implement a password management system.

  • Prohibit third-party apps on work devices.

  • 3. Make sure I.T is in the 2022 budget

    In this era, I.T is an area where you don’t want to be taking shortcuts. Budgeting for your I.T is a wise move to ensure that you have continuously upgraded internet access, software, and hardware upgrades as required. Unreliable internet service can cause downtime that has a run on effect with productivity, and can even lose your business valuable clients. Skimping on your I.T budget can lead to much bigger costs further down the road.

    4. Safe and Professional Email addresses

    This might sound basic, but if you haven’t already shifted to a professional email, 2022 is the time to do this. Using a gmail account or similar doesn’t make a professional first impression, and more importantly is a security risk. We can easily help you to upgrade to reliable business-grade emails.

    5. Audit your Equipment

    Taking time to do an audit of your current technology, and how it is performing can identify any potential problems and streamline processes. There are still some supply issues with computer hardware, so make sure you are aware of what your business is likely to need in 2022, including any new employees, plus upgraded equipment, so you can plan ahead.

    6. Partner up with a managed service provider

    Now is also a good time to hire a managed services provider.. Partnering with an IT professional helps you make good technology decisions that can ultimately save you a lot of money. Getting advice from industry experts who understand the increasingly complex world of technology, security, and optimizing IT resources is an investment that ends up being a lot more economical than having the ambulance at the bottom of the hill.

    Don’t worry if all of this feels overwhelming, our team can offer you many options to help you have a stress-free year with IT in 2022. If you would like further information, please feel free to reach out here or to one of our friendly, nationwide members..
