Unicorns Do Not Exist
Small businesses fall into the “unicorn trap” which is a mythical mid-level IT engineer who is expected to excel at employee support interactions, executing on a variety of projects, and have the security expertise to prevent significant data loss and theft from happening within your organization. There are usually 3 or 4 people that incorporate all these skills into one unicorn. Even if you do engage with this mythical creature, what will prevent them and their knowledge from disappearing?
There Are Several Types of Mid-level Specialists
Mid-level IT specialist may incorporative both good and bad personality traits. Take these personalities into your hiring IT decision making or outsource your hiring challenges with a Managed IT team.
PRODUCTIVITY SUFFERS AND NEGLIGENCE OCCURS DUE TO POOR BUSINESS DECISIONS
Every business now has some form of government compliance that protects businesses and consumers from data theft or loss and legal issues. Most small businesses do not properly consider security protections against data theft or loss. They simply look at the IT individual as reactive solution to the problem at hand. Yet, the lack of maintaining basic compliance standards and deploying a holistic security plan that you received from a CTO is one of the main reasons a successful business goes out of business.
