Across the country, even the smallest businesses are finding that online threats such as cyber criminals are a real, common threat, which is why `network security is something that most businesses need to know about if they want to ensure their online safety.

When you hear the phrase infrastructure integrity, it refers to the set-up that you have which promotes safety and security; this set up includes firewalls, anti-virus software and backups.

If you have not invested in a cybersecurity partner yet, you’re putting your sensitive data at risk. Here is how you can make cybersecurity a priority to keep your business safe from online threats.

Restrict and Control Access to Your Networks

One of the main reasons that online threats get through a business’s security system is because of unrestricted access and control to networks. Cyber criminals can take advantage of these poorly secured networks to steal personal data, and the average cost of even a single breach thanks to ransomware and poor password usage is around one million dollars.

The best way to avoid this is by making sure that each employee has their own account and passwords for critical processes while refraining from sharing this information with anybody.

You company should also set up appropriate levels of access for employees, so that junior employees can’t have access to more important financial records, client information or trade secrets this information should be strictly for senior employees.

Run Break-In Drills

Cyber Security Just like your business fire and earthquake drills, cybersecurity companies should be running mock break-ins to keep companies on their toes. Your company should be engaging with cybersecurity companies for penetration testing, in which professionals will attempt to gain access to your networks, under supervision of course, while our cyber solutions act to defuse the situation.

Keep Your Applications and Software Updated

It’s important to keep software updated so that it effectively fights off new threats. If you fail to keep your operating systems and applications up-to-date, you’re running intense risks; it’s like leaving your home unlocked, someone can break in at any moment. There are new methods of hacking being discovered every day, and your systems need to be updated to fight new threats.
