CyberSecurity Best Practices

There is no better time to make sure you and your staff are prepared to deal with cybersecurity threats.  Here are 7 security best practices to make sure your organization has the basics of cyber-hygiene covered:

  1. Ensure that you use Multi-Factor Authentication on EVERY login where there is a sensitive data asset behind it.  Make sure you are using decent password standards and complexity.

  2. Any device you utilize should have endpoint protection on it.  If you are concerned about a personal device, it would be a good idea to ensure that it has basic protection.

  3. Along those same lines, it is important that your devices are kept up to date particularly with security and other critical patches.  Malware often targets known unpatched vulnerabilities.

  4. Every person needs some kind of basic cyber-security awareness training.  People should know what to look out for with suspicious emails, phishing, fraud, malware, and other common threats.  Your staff can be your cyber-security weakness or strength based entirely on their own level of awareness.

  5. Only use vendor supported products.  Products that are no longer supported by vendors have potential vulnerabilities that may not be addressable and could lead to an attack.

  6. If you are in a particularly sensitive business with sensitive information, it is critical that your cyber-security strategy is robust.  The best practices and standards haven’t changed…you just want to make sure you are on top of it.

  7. The right cyber-security solution will vary based on your needs, which is why regular planning and re-evaluation of your security strategy is critical to your success.
