3 Tips to Prevent a Business Cyber Attack

Today’s cyber attacks are not only more common, but more bold and advanced. In the beginning of 2017 alone, the increase of cyber threats on mobile devices alone rose to over 250 percent. In working with our corporate and technology clients, we have acquired first-hand knowledge about the role that cyber security plays in securing a business’s assets. With that being said, any business, big or small, is at risk for a cyber attack.

New information is now emerging about the cyber attacks that have affected millions of Equifax users and billions of Yahoo users. In 2013, Yahoo suffered an attack which reportedly compromised 1 billion accounts. Recent news of the event states that in actuality, all 3 billion Yahoo accounts were affected.

This past summer, a software breach in Equifax’s system allowed access to data from 145 million of its consumers. From the Equifax files alone, cyber-attackers can steal information regarding driver’s licenses, bank account numbers, credit card information and Social Security numbers.

It is important to take the necessary precautions to protect your business from any type of cyber hack. These 3 tips are a great basis to begin:

1) Invest time in training security principles

Be sure to establish basic, company-wide security policies and practices for employees such as requiring strong passwords across all channels, establishing appropriate Internet use guidelines, and training employees how to handle and protect customer information and other vital business data.

2) Ensure firewall security for your Internet connection

If you do not have a firewall, be sure to invest in one. There are many options on the market, and some quality firewalls are even free. Make sure your business’s operating system’s firewall is always enabled, and if employees work remotely, require that their home systems are protected by a firewall.

3) Create and implement a mobile device action plan

Mobile devices pose significant security risks, especially if they contain confidential information or have access to a corporate network. Require all mobile users to password-protect their devices, encrypt their data, and install security apps to prevent information from being stolen while the phone is on a public network. Additionally, be sure to outline a detailed action plan protocol for reporting lost or stolen devices.
