Data Safety for Business

As an owner of a company, you collect and store sensitive information about your employees and customers. Although you might think that only large corporations are the victims of cyberattacks. But 60% of data breaches target small-sized businesses.

A single violation can cost you millions of dollars in settlements and fines. It can also end your customer’s loyalty. It can also jeopardize your company’s reputation and even cause you to be kicked out of the market.

There’s no one-size-fits-all solution for data safety, but there are a few basic steps that every business can take to help mitigate the risks and safeguard themselves from threats like malware, phishing attacks and data loss. By investing in strong passwords and locking important documents, and providing security training for your employees to make it difficult for hackers to access to your data.

Conduct regular risk assessments. This will help you find weaknesses and identify the most effective security measures. Develop a Comprehensive Security Policy: Create clear guidelines on access to data, data handling, and what to do in the event of an incident involving data. Secure sensitive data: This renders data unreadable to unauthorized users, both at rest and in transit. Destroy Unused Information: Consider policies that instruct employees on how to clean or erase sensitive information (like degaussing or shredding digitally) to prevent it from being access by people who shouldn’t.

Follow these steps to create solid foundations that will keep your business running smoothly during and after a cyberattack. For more information on creating an effective plan that meets your specific needs, request an appointment for a free consultation with our cybersecurity and IT specialist.
