Cyber Security Tips That Can Improve
Your Data's Safety
Importance Of
Cyber Security
If you follow the stories, global
damage of cybercrime has risen
to an average of £11 million per
minute, which is a cost of £190,000
each second.
If you are an SME, its reported that
60% of these businesses that are
impacted by a data breach end
up closing their doors within six
months because they can’t afford
the costs. The costs of falling
victim to a cyberattack can
include loss of business,
downtime/productivity losses,
reparation costs for customers
that have had data stolen, and in
most cases, reputational damage.
Introducing and
Enforcing MFA
Cybercriminals are becoming
proficient at accessing your
credentials. It’s critical to enable
and ensure all of your users are
using MFA. It's never 100%, nothing
is when it comes to Security, but
having the basics in place is one
more step an attacker needs to
overcome.
MFA is also known as 2 step
verification, and it can be a
password, security token or
biometric verification. These are
some of the more popular
methods, and you will recognise
Microsoft Authenticator and
Google Authenticator as some of
these methods.
Regularly Checking
and Patching Cyber
Security
Vulnerabilities
Patching can be the bane of an IT
persons, and a business owner's, life.
It’s a constant process and
procedure that is needed for all
businesses, across all devices and
applications.
Application and operating system
flaws and exploits are common in
cybercrime, through phishing and
email attacks in the main. Hackers
are constantly targeting these
unpatched flaws to make a
connection and compromise your
data.
Conducting
Regular Audits
We also advise businesses
conduct regular audits to identify
weaknesses of your business’s
cybersecurity. Through this
process, it will identify systems
and services that are vulnerable,
and help to identify any areas
that need resolving or mitigating.
Cybersecurity is a constant
moving beast within IT and the
business.
If you outsource your IT to a
business or an MSP, make sure
they are aware of new starters
and especially leavers. Also, if
there is any lateral movement in
the business.
