Cyber threats are increasing and becoming less noticeable. Are you and your business safe?
Within today's complex digital landscape that we now face, a new security model is needed. Organisations need to be prepared for any sort of cyber threat that might impact their security, data and compliance. It’s not just about your network anymore, and the first line of defence is now via identity as the modern security perimeter.
Although it might feel like a big task, there are simple ways to get you on the right track and allow for more technical methods of protection to be implemented.
Here are the top ten ways to keep you and your business cyber safe:
- Provide online safety training to staff
- Use strong and secure passwords or use passwordless authentication
- Use multi/two-factor authentication where possible
- Stay on top of all updates, especially system and software security updates
- Keep personal life separate to work appliances
- Prepare and protect yourself from phishing attacks and how they might occur
A little more technical:
7. Prepare/plan responses to cyber-attacks/incidents
8. Apply regular automated testing of defence within your organisation
9. Make sure suitable defence frameworks are in place
10. Stay on top of your IT management to identify and resolve vulnerabilities
This is a primary list of ways to protect your digital presence, but there are many more technical and crucial ways to help keep you and your organisation cyber safe. You and your organisation need to stay on top of your identity, data, devices, and your Microsoft 365 services; otherwise, you risk attacks, breaches, and scams.
Cyber security is no joke and can be overlooked, but it is incredibly important and will help to improve the safety of you, your company and most importantly, your employees.
