This may not need to be said but it never hurts us to have a reminder. When you are setting your IT budgets make sure you have room in their for IT training. This is often overlooked but it is crucial to protecting your business. Many network holes come from lack of knowledge.
Not getting your IT team trained on critical components of your systems and network doesn’t save any costs. Lack of training leads to extra IT purchases, staff turnover, loss of competitive advantage, and outdated practices.
I know I will be ruled as biased. The true fact is we run a training business because it is important and not solely an opportunity. Training is lacking in the world and until we take the time to educate ourselves we cannot expect to compete with companies who do.
