Since the advent of the commercial internet, Stephen Woessner has collected tens of thousands of data points that have given him the ability to identify what he calls the 8 Money Draining Mistakes. These are the things that literally cause a website to leak serious money…every day. Stephen teaches companies and organizations how to fix them…and how to fix them immediately.

Stephen also teaches how to apply what he calls the 8 Money Making Opportunities. These are the things that really matter because they increase financial return on investment in the digital world by 200 to 500 percent or more in 12-months or less. And all of this can be done without needing technical skills.

It seems like all of my business owner friends are having problems understanding what cyber security solution is appropriate for them. They spend most of their time talking to salespeople who seem to be trying to help, but are actually just pushing whatever product or service their quota is attached to. There isn't anything wrong with that, and as business owners we can all appreciate a good salesperson who knows how to run us through a pain funnel and provide a solution to that pain. We probably should hire them!

Unfortunately this means that you only get what they are selling and you only learn what they are teaching. There is no silver bullet for cyber security. It is a many-step process. The first is to make sure you are equipped to understand what you need before buying software and services that you may not need or worse, may not actually reduce your risk.

We use the National Institute of Standards and Technology's cyber security framework as a baseline as we walk you through a self assessment that lets you know where you stand.

Take the assessment, figure out if you need more information, then find some of those fantastic salespeople and buy only what you need.
