Protecting your network security in today’s technological age is incredibly important. With lax security protocols or inadequate oversight, your business could succumb to data breaches, operational disruptions, and tons of money spent on data recovery costs. Although there is no one set plan that works best for every business, there are a few fundamentals of network security every operation should follow:
- Commit to better passwords—Better passwords really can protect your business and, in turn, enhance your network security. Adopt protocols for enhancing the strength of your passwords, like requiring your employees to change their passwords and logins every three months, for example.
- Have someone monitor critical business systems—We can help you monitor and protect your business’ systems on an ongoing basis. The one thing we cannot stress enough is that when it comes to improving your network security, you can’t do this alone.
- Put together a backup plan—Instituting a data backup plan will help you preserve your operation’s critical data while also allowing you to continue your operations during and after a cyberattack. We can help you not only thwart cyberattacks, but also implement strategies to help you recover if they do happen.
- Educate your team—One nonnegotiable pillar of any strong cybersecurity strategy is to get your employees on board. Everyone who works for your business should be aware of their role in preventing cyberattacks and adjusting their behaviors to keep your network secure.
