Learn how to protect your business from a data breach.

As technology increases, our business practices are becoming more digital. Everything from client databases to business transactions are all conducted online. While these advances have made business practices easier, they come with new cyber risks. Ensure that your business is prepared for a data breach. Check out what you need to know about how to keep your digital data safe from cyber attack.

Know Your Vulnerabilities.

Every site has weaknesses. It’s important that you’re aware of your weaknesses so that you’re better able to keep your site secure. Once you identify weaknesses you can address them to secure your site.

Designate One Computer for Transactions.                      

Conducting online transactions puts your business at risk. Using multiple computers to make transactions, however, can increase vulnerability as you expose more systems to threats. Help to reduce the risk by conducting your all transactions on one secure computer that’s designated for purchasing and banking only.

Keep Software Up to Date.

Cybersecurity is a constant arms race between security systems and hackers. It’s important to regularly update your systems. That way you have the most up to date programming so that you can improve protection from cyber threats. Update your software, hardware, operating systems, applications, and antiviral programing.

Don’t Forget About Paper.

When you’re so caught up in increasing cyber security, it’s easy to forget about old fashioned data breaches. Don’t forget about paper files. Remember to keep documents under lock and key and to shred any documents that you no longer need.
