4 steps to BETTER business CYBERsecurity

Usernames & Passwords:

It is important to change passwords monthly or even more frequently to make it more difficult for hackers to get access to your accounts. Also having a unique username and password makes it harder for hackers to gain access. It is recommended to use a combination of numbers, characters, and symbols. For example, P@s$word123!

Training new users:

Employees should only have access to information appropriate to their position. In many cases employees only need “read-only” access to certain information. Employees should be trained on the appropriate communication method for certain types of data. For example, when to fax versus when to email files.

Technology use policy:

The purpose of these facilities is the support the goals of the business and its customers. All applications installed on workstations should meet the goals of the organization. Access to internet sites should also meet with business or organization goals.
