Improving Your Cybersecurity Won't Sacrifice Your Comfort Or Convenience. Here's Why!
During the first half of 2022 alone, approximately 236.1 million ransomware attacks worldwide were reported. What used to be simple attacks have evolved to become complex operations that involve multiple stages.
With cybercriminals becoming smarter and more aggressive behind their screens, here are a few solutions to improve cybersecurity without sacrificing convenience. Click the button to book an appointment and discuss your next move!
Unfortunately, employees will often be the weakest link in your efforts against cyberattacks, but at the same time, they can also serve as your strongest line of defense.
Because hackers often use unsuspecting employees as their access point to your data, it’s important to focus on your people to mitigate risks. Providing your employees with the proper training and education will allow them to work more efficiently, practice adequate security measures, and handle information with care.
Biometrics is an excellent piece of technology that offers convenience on top of extra protection for both your professional and personal devices. While passwords can be cracked or hacked into, leaving your information vulnerable to theft, adding biometrics is another barrier for criminals to jump over. It increases security by getting a fingerprint or passing a facial or retinal scan.
Backing up your business’ data on a regular basis can restore all your data, even after a breach occurs, to ensure that you don’t lose any data. Ensure that your backup is constantly updated — so everything works properly — and that you have the latest details for your company.
Provide Employee Accounts
Giving each employee that works for you their logins for the programs and applications they need can help to protect your company. Having too many users connected under the same account can risk your files and information. Having separate logins for every staff member can help protect you against attacks and improve efficiency for everyone.
One of the most common attacks against businesses is phishing, where cybercriminals use emails and texts to impersonate legitimate organizations. They then use attachments and links with malware. Having updated antivirus software on your company networks and devices can keep you safe from viruses and malware that may try to penetrate your network.
