Security Best Practices that Get Overlooked

Security Best Practices that Get Overlooked

Security is a major part of any business, and if there isn’t a diligent approach to the implementation of it, you can be left with huge holes in your network. This month, we thought we would discuss some of the best practices you can take to make sure that your organization’s security is in the best possible position to protect your digital resources. 

Security Steps

Let’s face it, your business’ cybersecurity starts and ends with your staff. They need simple, practical directions to follow or they simply won’t pay any mind to it. You don’t want to be the business that deals with significant turnover because security tasks are so demanding that their employees would rather work elsewhere. You will want to take the time to go through every part of your IT and brainstorm potential problems. You will address situations such as:

  • What qualifies as confidential data, when and how this data is to be shared, best practices and requirements for storage and access credentials
  • How devices used for work are to be maintained and handled, which devices may be approved for use, how to get a device approved
  • How employees are required to go about transferring data, remote work policies, threat reporting processes

Understanding the potential problems your business faces can go a long way toward dictating where you need to invest capital on the security side. 

Prioritize Training

Many businesses are still not training their employees even though up to 94 percent of all cyberthreats that come in are due to employee error, negligence, or sabotage. As a result, it’s extremely important to have a comprehensive security training platform in place. You need to teach your employees about phishing, about social engineering tactics, and about data care.

Use Innovative Tools

There are a lot of businesses that have a lot of security measures that they use to mitigate problems such as data theft, intrusion, and especially malware deployment. These solutions can be had in a comprehensive security suite that includes firewall, antivirus, content filtering, spam blocker and more.
