Cybersecurity has become a vital part of business as ransomware, hacking, phishing, identity theft, and other attacks have become frequent.
Small businesses are often vulnerable to a cyber attack. Many wonder how they can stay safe when they lack the resources of larger companies.
However, proper security protection doesn’t always involve a monetary component. Some of the best steps to company safety are entirely free. For example, a strong password policy and an administration access policy.
Employee passwords should be complex and hard to guess. As well, changing passwords regularly and two-factor identification adds another layer of protection.
Strictly limit access to any administration area. Make it available to the few that must have it. In fact, many security breaches are caused by employees who install infected software without realizing what it is.
Management should control high-level access. And control what can be updated and installed on company hardware. Train approved administrators properly on security issues. If an employee doesn’t need admin access to perform their job duties, they should not have it.
