Lucas Keiffer manages technology support for members of the Advent Coworking space in Charlotte. He recently discussed best tech practices for non-profit organizations, small businesses, and new members of coworking spaces.
1. Ensure you have a fast, reliable internet connection.
2. Tap into tech expertise within the coworking space.
There’s always this kind of built-in expertise when you have a community of people who are working together in a co-working place. So I’ve seen a lot of instances where people are having trouble with their website, and there’s a web developer at the table next door. If it’s usually just a quick fix they don’t mind giving you a verbal how to.
3. Install antivirus and use two-factor authentication.
4. Have a backup solution in place.
Have a backup solution in place to protect you just in case you get infected froml ransomware infections. Dropbox and Google Drive are two great options to start.
5. Two great apps for non-profits and small businesses.
Basic stuff like that will really help you out in the long run.
