With recent news stories of Yahoo, Equifax, and other large corporations coming to terms on huge, multi-million-dollar settlements as the consequence of customer data breaches and hacking becoming the near-daily norm, it’s become all too obvious that cybersecurity needs to be the number one priority for you and your customers. With hackers utilizing countless malicious viruses in an attempt to gain access to your system in order to steal sensitive information and data, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and helpless as a business owner that’s responsible for your customers’ information. In this day and age where the ease and convenience of mobile computing, mobile business, telecommuting, remote servers, cloud computing, and shared wireless networks have revolutionized the way we do business, it’s also made us more susceptible to the ever-growing threat of data breaches, cyberterrorism, and hacking. Because hackers never sleep, it’s important that your defense against them doesn’t either.
Secure Your Company Network
Because the information stored on your company’s network is the lifeblood of your business, it’s important to take a proactive – rather than reactive – approach to protecting it. Keep in mind – you only get one chance to prevent the first occurence, so a mindset on defending your vital info should be your greatest priority. While the head of your IT department can install firewalls and implement security software on the traditional devices that immediately come to mind, what about the other hardware and equipment that utilizes your company’s network and infrastructure? How about your printers and copiers that use your network? They’re just as susceptible to cyber threats and other illicit actions that threaten your business. Thinking proactively, it’s important that you view those peripherals as potential entry points for an intruder to gain access to you and your customers’ information and data, which then puts everybody on your network at risk.
