Preparing For A Successful Call:
What I’m going to want to discuss during this call is, of course, your network. What I’ve learned (by doing so many of these) is: if I give you the base-line questions in advance, the call goes much smoother… because you were able to prepare much better for the call.
So Here’s The Main Questions We’ll Go Over During Our Call:
- Do you have any remote offices or workers?
- How many computers (Workstations, Servers, Laptops, Tablets, etc.) do you have (in the building, and remote)?
- How many of these devices are older than three years old? Five years old? Eight years old? Ten years old?
- Are all of your computers Microsoft Windows-based or do you use some Macs (or all Macs)?
- What are your critical business applications? Are they accessed through the Cloud/Hosted?
- Is there a current problem or concern you have about your computer network that is of the utmost importance to get resolved ASAP? If so, what is it and why is it so urgent to get resolved? Is there a second? Third?
- What has been done to try and resolve these problems to date?
- What are you currently doing to protect your Users, Computers, Critical Documents and Other Data from Viruses, Malware and Cyber-Criminals?
- Do you perform Daily or Weekly Backups? If so, is this for All Computers, just a few Select Computers, or the Server Only? Are these files stored locally or offsite?
- How do you protect your Inbound and Outbound Email from Spam, Spoofing and Phishing Attacks?
Maximizing Our Time Together
If you can get the answers to these questions BEFORE we talk, we can streamline the conversation and get directly to the pertinent concerns you have.
I’m looking forward to speaking with you soon!
