Every business is at risk of cyberattack. In fact, it's really a matter of time before your company experiences one. Your organization's response to a cyberattack is going to have a significant impact on whether it's able to recover swiftly—or even recover at all. Here's what you need to know about preparing yourself for the upcoming threats.
Protecting your company data isn't always enough; sometimes you need to protect employee data as well. Employees are targets for cyberattacks—and if their data is breached the company could suffer a breach as well. Businesses should encourage their employees to keep their data safe, as well as, initiating a data protection policy. If employees are to keep any type of company data on their personal devices they need to be able to follow basic data protection training.
Social engineering is one of the most dangerous and insidious forms of a cyberattack. Always changing and frequently bypassing even sophisticated security solutions, social engineering can seem impossible to defend against. Yet there are ways to avoid the effects of social engineering, primarily by training employees to look for specific social engineering techniques. Better social engineering awareness can reduce your organization's risk overall, though it'll be constant work to update and refresh your training.
One of the first cybersecurity basics a company needs to cover is creating a software update policy. Software is periodically updated to protect an organization from newly discovered exploits. When software isn't updated, it becomes vulnerable. Yet while a company can control its own devices, it can't always control employee devices—and these employee devices can become a risk in and of themselves.
