CyberSecurity Plan 1

HAVE A STRICT CYBERSECURITY PLAN

There’s no joking about cyber security. Keeping your sensitive business data secured is essential when attempting to protect your business and your own personal data. That being the case, it’s important to have a clearly defined policy in place. For every employee accessing the internet on a work device, these guidelines should be included in any pre-employment documentation.

CyberSecurity Devices

PROTECT YOUR DEVICES

Additionally, employee devices, like laptops or mobile devices, should be secured. This is another key point within a cyber security plan. Employees should have authority to access only the data considered essential to perform their job duties.

CyberSecurity Passwords

USE STRONG PASSWORDS & MULTI FACTOR AUTHENTICATION

Requiring password protection on these devices can also protect you in the unfortunate scenario where these devices get stolen. These passwords should be unique for each employee and should be updated on a consistent basis. You can read more about password security here.

Cyber Security Network

NETWORK SECURITY

With wi-fi becoming more available it’s hard to find a place that doesn’t offer their guests a wireless connection. Protecting your customer data should not end when customers leave your website. If you operate a physical location. It’s likely your customers could be connecting to multiple public networks which could leave your networks susceptible as well.

CyberSecurity Payment

PAYMENT SECURITY

Credit and debit cards are an extremely popular form of payment. Gone are the days of using cash or checks. These types of payments will utilize your network connection in order to be processed. If PCI best practices are not implemented or your network is not properly secured, customer data could be compromised during data breaches.

CyberSecurity Ssl

ENCRYPTING CUSTOMER DATA WITH AN SSL

Our first tip for keeping your customer data secured online, is installing a Secured Socket Layer (SSL) on your site. This encrypts customer inputs in forms or checkout pages of your site. This is so important that Google will no longer index sites that do not include these. Further, specific browsers will stop users from even entering a site that doesn’t have a SSL installed. The majority of customers will not complete a check out process if a site is not secured with an SSL.

CyberSecurity Check

SECURITY CHECK

To guard against cyberthreats, it’s crucial to perform a website security check on a regular basis to help protect your bandwidth, traffic, visitor data, and reputation, as well as reduce your chances of getting blacklisted by Google. A security check can also help ensure your site can handle the influx of traffic while staying secure.

CyberSecurity VPN

USE A VIRTUAL PRIVATE NETWORK (VPN)

With more employees requiring remote access it’s putting some additional strain on businesses to keep their data secured. Using a virtual private network (VPN) establishes a secure connection to your sensitive business data while your employees are working remotely.

CyberSecurity Software

LIMIT THE SOFTWARE INSTALLED ON DEVICES

Have control over your employee's devices by requiring permission before downloading any software onto a business device. Manage any issues that may arise with apps or other software that could harm the data on the device.
