It’s a phenomenon that occurs when people become overwhelmed and desensitized to the constant barrage of cyber threats and security alerts they face on a daily basis.
You may be thinking “My business is too small to be a target for cyber criminals”.
Unfortunately, that couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, small businesses are often targeted precisely because they are seen as easier targets. Cyber criminals know that small businesses don’t have the same resources as larger corporations, making them more vulnerable to attacks.
So, how can you tell if your business is suffering from cyber security fatigue? Here are a few signs to look out for:
If any of these sound familiar, it’s time to take action. Here are a few ideas to help you combat cyber security fatigue and keep your business secure:
1. Invest in employee training. Your employees are your first line of defense against cyber threats. Make sure they understand the risks and are trained in proper security protocols.
2. Use multi-factor authentication. This adds an extra layer of security by requiring users to provide additional verification before accessing sensitive information.
3. Keep your software up to date. Many cyber attacks happen because of outdated software that contains vulnerabilities. Make sure all software is regularly updated to the latest version.
4. Partner with a trusted IT support partner. They can provide ongoing support and monitoring of your systems, ensuring that your business stays secure and up to date. If you don’t have a partner, we should talk 🙂
Don’t let cyber security fatigue put your business at risk. By taking proactive steps to improve your security, you can protect your business and enjoy peace of mind. Remember, the best defense is a good offense! If we can help, get in touch.

We’re saying goodbye to Cortana… sort of
Microsoft has recently announced that it will be discontinuing its Cortana app for Windows 10 and Windows 11 later this year. This is after years of declining use and popularity for the digital assistant, which was originally intended to compete with other AI assistants like Siri and Alexa.
While Cortana will still be available as part of Windows 10 and 11, the standalone app will no longer be supported. Instead, Microsoft is shifting its focus towards integrating Cortana into other products and services, like Microsoft Teams and Outlook.
