PROTECT YOUR BUSINESS - STEPS TO BE CONSIDERED
Modern-day technology brings with it huge opportunities and for most of businesses, it’s the only way they can function. But the same technology – the internet – brings with it risks as huge.
To protect your business from Cyber breach, there are a few simple steps you need to consider:
- Understanding the risks – is often seen as just an IT issue and more often than not, might not be filed in the ‘urgent matters’ category. As a business, you need to understand that hackers do not just use IT infrastructure to infiltrate databases, telephone systems and even printers might offer a window into your system. This is why understanding your requirements and the risks are so important.
- Complex, regularly updated passwords are harder to crack
- Good anti-virus software and spam filters
- Data encryption and security access measures
- Monitoring software should also be considered for reporting any breaches within the time frame set out by GDPR.
- Educating your staff – this is perhaps one of the most important steps that can be taken to prevent cyber breaches. The majority of hacking attempts do come through email. Good staff education on how to deal with these situations is imperative and could prevent a disaster from happening.
- Backing up systems regularly
