For any company (and small ones in particular), the bottom line affects everything. Any changes have to be worked out within a tight budget. You need to make the most of every sale and carefully allocate funds and staff in the right places. In that environment, some things tend to fall by the wayside, and one of them is often information technology, or IT. Why every business needs to focus on IT We live in the era of the hacker.
