We Translate Tech Talk Into Plain English and Business Value

You’re not an IT Guru.

So why do so many IT guys seem to think you are? They’ll throw a bunch of strange acronyms and other technical jargon at you without realizing you have no idea what you’re talking about. And even if you could understand them, these explanations are more a waste of time than they are something you really need to hear.

What you do need to hear is how an investment in IT will actually help your business. Smart investments in technology will allow you to reduce your IT budget and use those savings to address other needs, and we’ll also make your employees more efficient and have you exceeding your revenue goals.

Non-Profit, Healthcare, and Other Industry-Specific Support

Data loss is serious concern for any business.

If you weren’t aware of the consequences of an online security breach already, allow us to illustrate: it’ll cost you an average of $150 per comprised file to recover from data loss, and thousands of files are compromised in the average attack, so you’re looking at damages potentially totaling over $1 million. No matter what you do, no one wants to take a million dollar hit.

That said, some industries are affected more than others.

There’s no shortage of non-profits in DC. If you’d like to keep receiving the support from donors that you need to keep everything afloat, you’re going to have to convince donors that your network truly is secure.

If you’re hit with a security breach and word gets around, that’ll scare a lot of potential donors away. No one wants to risk having their own network attacked by connecting with an organization that is already known to be vulnerable.

Non-profits aren’t the only vertical where the cost of data loss is magnified by industry-specific subtleties. Hospitals have HIPAA to deal with, legal firms must be ready for SEC and FDIC audits, and any business that accepts credit cards needs to be able to meet PCI DSS standards.

Integris has experience in all those industries. We know how to keep you up to code with complex rules and regulations, so you don’t have to worry about any potential penalties or fines when we’re looking out for you.
