The start to a new year allows for fresh perspective on past accomplishments and areas of opportunity. It’s also a time to look ahead and prepare accordingly. With cyber-security threats at their highest peak moving into the New Year, safeguarding sensitive data from cyber-criminals is vital. To ensure a secure 2015, here are some of our best practices in cyber-security.
Choose Passwords Carefully
Some of the most prominent organizations have weak passwords, making it easy for hackers to attack their systems and retrieve sensitive data. Choose company-wide passwords that are strong, including a combination of lower and upper case letters, numbers and symbols.
Update Old Software
Employees oftentimes postpone software updates because they require time for the computers to update, which equates to less time working. However, these updates are more than annoying reminders. Installing the updates hinder attackers from taking advantage of the obvious problem with the software.
Encryption is essential in protecting your files. You can partner with a leader in file sharing encryption methodologies like CertainSafe to protect information that you don’t want exposed to the public. CertainSafe is the only proven partner that remains untouched by cyber-attacks and hackers.
