Your small business is a large investment and you’ve worked hard to get it up and running. So, the idea of anything ruining the success and future of your business can be terrifying. However, with cybercrime on the rise, there is a real possibility that your business could suffer a great deal if you are not properly protected. Here are three tips to take advantage of:
- Change your passwords often. Every person in the company that has access to the computer system should change his/her password every 30-60 days. Further, passwords should have some level of complexity to them.
- Back everything up. A large amount of data can be lost during cyber-attacks, so it is important that your data and important information is backed up on a regular basis. You may think this would be too expensive, but small businesses can now use cost-effective cloud services to back up their data.
- Educate and train your employees. Data breaches often occur with employees. Therefore, training and education on basic security measures and how to recognize threats can go a long way in protecting your business.
