The advancement of the digital world has created great opportunities for businesses, with new vendors becoming increasingly accessible. While this is undoubtedly a good thing, it’s not without risk. Keeping tabs on your cyber security vulnerabilities should be a priority to protect your small business.
Here are some key things to consider when planning your cybersecurity.
It can be tempting to seek the latest innovations and products, but the basics are just as important. Use unique passwords that contain a mixture of characters and, where possible, use two-factor authentication.
Keep your software and applications up to date. Vendors continually enhance their products to maintain the integrity of their security. Keeping yours up to date will ensure your business is protected with the latest patches.
Install an antivirus software and scan for viruses regularly. Any device that connects to the internet is at potential risk from cyber threats. An antivirus acts as the first line of defence and significantly reduces the risk of attacks.
Firewalls are a barrier between a private internal network and the public internet. It monitors and filters incoming and outgoing network traffic, as per your business security policies.
Knowing what devices and software platforms are part of your organisation’s network is important. This allows you to identify any gaps or high risk areas in your security plan.
Create a recovery and continuity plan to allow your business to minimize the impacts of a potential security breach. This will help keep your organisations most critical infrastructures running.
