This is the first installment of the Tech Insider. Each week we will investigate new technology tools that professionals and small business owners can use to increase productivity,  security, and stay innovative in this Web 2.0 world. These days business information is conducted, stored, and created online more than ever before. Some people go through great lengths to keep that data secure, doing everything from purchasing expensive anti virus software to avoiding the internet entirely, thereby missing out on innovative ways to stay competitive in a digital world. Keeping your data protected from corruption and your identity guarded from unauthorized use may require more common sense and less cryptic technology. Here are five things you need to do to decrease the likelihood that your proprietary business transactions won’t be violated.

Who are you connecting with on social media sites? Who's connecting with you? More importantly, why are you connected, and how are you using your presence in social media to advance your career, business, financial and lifestyle objectives? These are the questions we had in mind when we created this new BlackEnterprise.com feature, Social Media Connection. Lots of magazines, web sites, bloggers, etc. share all kinds of lists of who's who on Twitter and other social media sites. Our goal with Social Media Connection is to go a little deeper. Each week, we'll profile an entrepreneur, business expert, celebrity or other key influencer in a unique way: breaking down their presence on social media site by site—focusing on their favorites—and getting their insights on how they use that presence to achieve their business goals. Our objective is to give you insights and ideas from the most successful entrepreneurs, professionals and experts engaged in social media, insights you can use to achieve your own goals. To introduce this new feature, which will appear every Thursday, I've volunteered, as the editor-in-chief of BlackEnterprise.com, to be the guinea pig.
