NCACPA members to learn best practices for “IT Hygiene” at upcoming December Chapter meetings from area IT expert, Tim Finnegan
Raleigh, NC -- (ReleaseWire) -- 12/05/2006 --Good IT hygiene is just as critical to the health of your small businesses as good personal hygiene is to your own health. That is the lesson that members of the North Carolina Association of Certified Public Accountants (NCACPA) will learn from Tim Finnegan, Program Director for TotalCare IT Solutions, this December.
Finnegan, one of the area’s most sought after speakers on information technology, will present “IT Best Practices” to both the Sandhills and Triangle chapters of the NCACPA this December. The seminars are a part of the association’s continuing education courses on IT Management and Data Security. Attendees of the session will receive credits towards their continuing education obligations.
“Most professionals are so focused or busy in their jobs that IT “hygiene” is often put on the backburner. As a result, most professionals at small businesses are reactive with their IT, only addressing issues after they arise or when there is an emergency. And being reactive to IT means there will always be more problems,” says Tim Finnegan. “On the other hand, if one is proactive with their IT management by following best practices , they can come to expect great performance and longevity from their desktops, PDA’s, servers and other devices. I plan to arm NCACPA members with that critical knowledge on how to maintain healthy equipment, thus enabling them to more faithfully rely on their business technology, which in turn helps them focus on their corecompetencies,” he added.
Finnegan leads TotalCare IT Solutions (www.totalcareitsolutions.com), the region’s top provider of IT support to small and medium sized businesses. TotalCare is a division of Raleigh-based Alphanumeric Systems, Inc.
The Sandhills Chapter of the NCACPA will hold their meeting on Tuesday, December 5 at the Holiday Inn I-95 in Fayetteville. The session will begin at 8:00 a.m. The Raleigh chapter will hold their meeting on Sunday, December 12 at the RTP Hilton, and the session will begin at 1:00 p.m.
