Cybersecurity and Small Business

with Federated Insurance 

 

These days, it's nearly impossible for businesses to operate without the help of Internet-connected devices, which exposes them to cybercrime. It's the small to medium-sized businesses, however, that are especially vulnerable: half are victims of cybercrime and nearly two-thirds of those victims go out of business. Hackers increasingly target small businesses because there is a low risk they will be caught and a high probability they will be successful. Read more to find out how you can protect your small business.

Industry Standards Have Your Back with Ryan Amato And Kyle Eads

 

Every painting business owner will sooner or later find themselves in the awkward position of defending their work or demanding their pay as a result of misunderstanding or miscommunication. This is why industry standards in any trade exist. The PDCA Industry Standards for painting contractors are there to prime conversations and contracts so that the painting business is protected. Ryan Amato and Kyle Eads of Amato Painting in Pennsylvania have had their share of instances when they have needed to utilize the PDCA Industry Standards to safeguard their work. On this episode of Paint ED they share what they have learned so you don't have to make the same costly mistakes!
