1.Because we use SSL, our data is secure:
Your data may be more secure, but it still cannot be guaranteed. In your car, you have a seat belt, but is that your only means of protection? No, your car needs sensors, airbags, gauges, insurance, and more to be safe overall. Technology is the same. SSL is more secure, but to ensure your system is completely secure, you also need the necessary firewalls and antivirus programmes.
2. Some gadgets are immune to viruses:
Are you still hearing people say that viruses cannot infect Apple products or mobile devices? If so, you’re well behind the level of cybercrime as it stands today.
Yes, Apple first marketed its operating system as being almost impenetrable by viruses. The invincible Titanic of computer programmes was found to be false in 2012 after a large attack on Mac computers.
In actuality, Macs are more powerful than the majority of PCs. They are not indestructible, like the Titanic. Both of your mobile devices are not. They are less likely to become infected, but the danger increases as more software is downloaded.
3. The cost of tech support must be high:
Whatever you pay for, you get. You won’t get the specialised hands-on care you’ll need in the event of an IT emergency if you engage a low-cost 1 guy IT team.
4. The certification cycle is brief:
Certification for Windows 2003 is out of date. Technically, would you still possess it? Maybe. Will you require it? No. Everything truly depends on the certifications you obtain; for some, you might need to re-certify in the future if the necessary systems are still in place.
5. “I won’t experience it”
Even while not every customer or company says it, they are all thinking it. They believe that our efforts to convince them to purchase the servers and backups they require are merely a ruse. But it always happens. When a business chooses not to invest in backups or the appropriate server for their needs, disaster will inevitably strike and your operation may be interrupted for a while. They realise that it may happen to them and wish they had paid attention.
6. Risk is decreased by password complexity and expiration:
Since passwords can be cracked or tracked down, this is a wise habit to adopt. Why not change all of your critical account information at the same time as your bank reminds you every few months that you must change your password? It is crucial to use a complicated password that frequently changes and contains capital letters, characters, digits, etc.
7. The environment in IT is relaxed and slow-moving:
This is especially true in the summer when many individuals are on vacation and less likely to think about updating or upgrading their systems. The IT sector goes bonkers at the end of the year because businesses with successful years have extra cash to spend.
When it comes to the IT sector, don’t accept everything you read or hear, but do be cautious to prevent your company from being the next business disaster story.
8. The best method for safeguarding critical files is encryption:
Actually, keeping critical files off the internet and on an internal network is the best method to keep them secure. An internal network is the way to go if you can keep your sensitive files offline, but it all depends on how your firm is handled and whether you can manage it.
9. A diploma can be used in place of a bachelor’s degree:
Depending on the level. It would be greatly preferred if someone had attended a two-year IT programme with a focus on tech assistance. A four-year degree programme is also preferable above a certificate in IT education.
The biggest bonus is having a degree and a certificate. However, without any prior experience, a certificate may not be as effective.
10. All messages on your computer are valid:
You must exercise caution because not all messages are. If a toolbar message that you need to clean your system because you have a virus doesn’t come from an anti-virus programme you’ve installed, it’s likely that infection itself.
Avoid opening or clicking on links or attachments if you didn’t install it or weren’t expecting the email because doing so could take you to dangerous areas.
11. AI and Machine Learning Are the Same:
AI and ML are frequently used synonymously. That is untrue, though, as machine learning and artificial intelligence are very different.
Machine learning would fall under the general heading of artificial intelligence.
ML is more focused, whereas AI refers to anything that has to do with computer engineering. It focuses on teaching computers how to carry out tasks and gather data.
