Doesn’t our IT firm handle Cyber Security?

Data Security isn’t just a tech issue. It’s a staff issue, a legal issue, and a client issue. All of these issues form the basis of the four Hubs in Practice Protect.

The Security Hub, the Access Hub, the Advisory Hub, and the Compliance Hub all work together to help small businesses deal with these.
