How to Protect Yourself from a Cyber Attack: Part 2
Did you know that 81% of all breaches happen to small and medium sized businesses? If you’re worried about protecting your own business here are a few things you can do:
Step 4: Secure Your Email
Most attacks originate in email. A qualified cyber security team can help you choose a service designed to reduce spam email and your exposure to attacks on your organization via email.
Step 5: Apply Security Policies on your Network
What’s a Security Policy? Perhaps it’s something as simple as limiting the ability for users to save data on your network. Or maybe it’s establishing a mandatory password policy. Or if you have a lot of “prying eyes” in your business maybe it’s something as simple as establishing a screen timeout to black out your screen when you walk away. It doesn’t have to be complicated.
Step 6: Backup, Backup, Backup
Backup your local data. Back it up to the Cloud and have an offline backup for each month of the year. And TEST YOUR BACKUPS often. A data backup is worthless if it can’t be restored.
