Cyber security scares you because…

Many fears pop up when I’m talking about cyber security to freelancers and solopreneurs.

Fear of the unknown
Cyber security is a topic rarely spoken of in freelance and solopreneur circles. There aren’t many workshops or articles on the subject, so you may not know what good security looks like.

Fear of changing habits
It is usual to fear changing habits you have held for a long time. Learning something new and applying it requires more energy than staying the same.
This fear is especially true if you expect it to be complex and the process is unknown.

Meanwhile, cyber incidents are affecting small businesses.
All of this together can feel so overwhelming that you freeze and do nothing.

"Penny has been amazing helping me get my online security sorted. I knew I was burying my head in the sand, but I didn't know where to start. She metaphorically held my hand the whole way through, and is still there for tech support when needed, in it's various forms. Thanks Penny!"
