Today’s business faces more cybersecurity threats than ever. Maintaining the security of your network and data is a number one priority. Today, we will discuss some simple, efficient and cost-effective ways to protect your organizational cybersecurity.
Good password management is an essential part of security. A good password needs to be something that people or computer programs won’t guess. Do that by:
Your office Wi-Fishould be secure, hidden, and encrypted. When working outside the office, use a virtual private network (VPN) to protect your uploads and downloads. Never use public Wi-Fi without a VPN. That’s just asking for trouble.
Make sure you are using a reliable VPN. Most comprehensive office network security suites come with VPN licenses that will protect data transmission when you are working on someone else’s Wi-Fi.
Phishing is the number one way that hackers gain access to a network. This is because people click on links and download attachments without really knowing what they are. You have probably been phished many times, blissfully unaware because you were protected by your spam blocker. It only takes one successful attack to create a disaster so don’t help the hackers by clicking on malware.
Finally, never put personal or company information in any message unless you are sure who is on the other end. This is serious. Phishing is the number one cause of identity theft and ransomware. Don’t be an easy mark for scammers.
The individual’s role in protecting business and personal networks is vital. Don’t let human error be the chink in your armor. Want to learn more about IT security or how to manage risks that come from phishing and other attacks? Subscribe to our blog today!
