What is the cost for a small business technology assessment? How long should it take? It is a non-profit health center with about 97 employees. Server and network issues frequently.

Well, the assessment should be free, the costs come with implementing the proposals of the assessment.

Not sure if that's what your asking but most firms/contractors will do a free assessment with a view to taking on the work required.

The opposite approach is to pay the consultant, assuming you've found a really competent one, then taking their recommendations to form a RFP (request for proposal). Essentially the hardware/software contractors would be bidding on the specs and list what they would offer in addition i.e. warrant on labor or some sort of extended service either by phone, remote or in person.

I Myself run a cyber security research company but we do offer a service for networking, PC revival and optimisation we would usually visit a site first and work out what needs to be done, document our findings and then work out a cost based on what needs to be done, how long it is going to take and then how many staff would be required to do the job to a high standard with minimal interruption. The initial consultation is of course free.

Corporate security threats come from customers and business partners
