You’ve heard the advice countless times before: you must have antivirus software and a strong firewall.
However, in 2018, there is more to the security “basics” than just having strong technology.
What about the employee who inadvertently clicks on an e-mail on her phone from a random stranger trying to move money to the US. They realizes it’s a scam, but it’s too late…their phone is compromised and is now breaching sensitive data to overseas criminals so they can exploit it for fraud.
Have you trained your employees? Don’t open an Excel attachment called “Invoice” from someone you don’t know – trust me, they’ll call you if you owe them money.
A single crack in your armor can open the door for network attacks. In addition to patches, Antivirus/Antimalware, firewalls, and other important tools, implement a Security Awareness Program where your staff takes ownership of your security, and you create an organizational culture of risk awareness.
