How to protect your business from cyber crimes?
- April 5, 2019
Many successful people all around the globe experience data frauds of different sorts because they weren't prepared to protect their business in a proper way. Also, small companies think about how only the big and successful ones are those that are being attacked. But, the truth is, you never know what hacker's target is. Therefore, I have created a mini tutorial which will help you to keep your company safe.
1. Big or small business? As I have already mentioned above, it is very important to know how everyone is the target of hackers. Why would they attack your small company when they can hack someone bigger and ''better''? What if I tell you how there are those hackers who are just learning how to hack or implementing their strategy as a test on your company? Yes, that happens literally daily. So, it doesn't matter how huge your company is, you are (everyone is) the target of the hackers.
2. Authorization. If you are the boss of the company, you must be the only one who is an admin at your computer, laptop, tablet, smartphone or you name it. Your employees shouldn't have an access to your main database. The best would be for them to not even use your computer, but if they have to, they should log in as guests.
3. Passwords. Be sure that you create very strong passwords. Such has to be made from numbers and letters (combine small and big letters). Also, change those regularly.
4. Train your employees. Your employees must know how to recognize an email which has some threat in it. It may happen that just one of your employees opens some email that contains phishing and all your company may lose data. Keep that in mind. Every email that is suspicious in any way to you or anyone shouldn't be opened.
5. Log out. Be sure that you always log out from every device you have. It may sound a little bit boring to log in and out over and over again, but that is for your company's safety. Keep that in mind.
As you see, these simple tricks are very easy, yet, those will help you stay safe.
