Cybercrime has been a huge concern among businesses. After the 2020 pandemic, there is a rise in businesses shifting their entire operations online. However, with digital transformations being prevalent, it becomes very important to be vigilant towards cybercrime and cyber threats that can harm your business.

 In a 2022 report, it was found that nearly a quarter of US-based IT companies that have experienced a cyber attack has lost between 50,000 and 99,999 U.S. dollars. 

Hence it has become very important for businesses to take proper measures to protect themselves from cyber threats. 

Here are some of them in this article. 

Back up your data. 

One of the biggest aims of ransomware and malware is to steal your data and create havoc. One of the best ways to avoid all of that hassle is to regularly back up your data without fail. Regular incremental data backups in a portable device or cloud are a good idea. Also, server backups after every week, every quarter, and every year are very crucial. Along with that, it is important to keep tabs on data that can be restored. 

It is wise to keep a separate copy on a portable device that you keep offsite. Alternatively, you can encrypt your data while transferring and storage and store it in a cloud storage solution. 

Refrain from keeping your devices connected to your computer as they become vulnerable to cyber threats. 

Secure your onsite network

Update the software

Make sure that your operating system and software update regularly and automatically. Most updates allow you to schedule as and when you please. However it is important to update your software because it can fix some serious issues dealing with security.

Invest in a good antivirus software

Make sure your antivirus software has various other features like anti-virus, anti-malware, antispam, etc. These softwares prevent infection and are helpful in maintaining privacy. 

Set up a firewall

A firewall is a software or hardware that protects your device from malware that can enter your device from the internet. It is almost like the security near the gates or the gatekeepers of your device. Firewalls require regular patch-ups to make sure they work effectively. Installing a firewall on all your business devices can help you be safe from cyber threats. 

Keep spam filters on

One of the biggest ways of protecting your devices and networks is by keeping spam filters on because spam emails are a way through which phishing emails might enter the system.

Spam emails can infect devices with malware that can make your computer vulnerable to  cyberattacks 

Applying a spam filter is the best way to make sure that no employee clicks on the spam mail by accident 

Encrypt important information 

Encrypting your information makes sure that all your important data is encrypted when stored or sent online. This will make it difficult for hackers to gain access to important information. You can turn on encryption by your router settings or by installing a VPN. 

Use secure passwords/ passphrases and enable multifactor authentication

Multifactor authentication will ensure that the right person gains access to your important information by using two or more proofs of your identity. Also, passphrases will make your data more secure because it makes it more difficult for hackers to gain access to your data. 

Run appropriate tests 

It is important to run cybersecurity tests like penetration tests, vulnerability scans, and risk assessments to make sure that your systems are up to date and there are no cyber vulnerabilities in your systems.

It is very important to maintain your cyber hygiene and be regular with your updates to make sure that your data is safe and in the right hands. However, you might need assistance with the more complex ways of making sure there are no prying eyes on your data. Hence Assystant will assyst you to keep your data safe and secure.
