We’ve written before about the importance of securing your data and networks from potential cyber criminals. As larger corporations continue to beef up their security, smaller businesses are becoming greater targets. Therefore, the need to protect yourself has become even greater. Here are a few easy tips to assist you in securing your data:
(1) Ensure that employees use effective passwords and change them every three months.
(2) Protect your system with anti-virus, anti-spyware and anti-adware programs. Use a firewall for Internet-connected computers.
(3) Keep all software up to date.
(4) Make weekly backup copies of all your important data and store a copy away from your office.
