Five Crucial Cyber Security Tips For Business

#1 Protect your laptop in public

If someone were to steal a company laptop or phone, a great deal of sensitive data can be breached. Inform your employees to be extra careful with work and personal devices when in public. Also, avoid using public Wi-Fi to help further protect your company.

#2 Beware of fake software

Many cyber schemes are developed to trick employees into downloading and installing fake and contaminated malware on their company devices. Ensure anything being downloaded is legitimate and protected to ensure prime cyber security.

#3 Watch out for phishers

Be aware of cyber criminals using fake emails or websites to trick employees into giving them important and classified information. This practice of phishing is very common, and employees are often unaware of what red flags to watch out for. Your cyber security depends on your employee’s actions so be sure to inform them how to avoid phishers.

#4 Prepare for employee departure

Hackers can easily access your business’s information through an inactive employee’s system access. When it comes to cyber protection, be sure to terminate any employee accounts when they leave the business.

#5 Invest in cyber liability insurance

If you aren’t sure whether or not your business is covered for cyber liability, contact your insurance broker to discuss your coverage and options. If you’re interested in getting a no-obligation quote on Cyber Insurance, click here.
