This year, February 9th marks Safer Internet Day in the United States. It is a day designed to promote the efforts of Internet users of all ages, interests and backgrounds to make the Internet a better place and the world a better place with the help of the Internet.
As a company that helps protect other companies against information leaks, viruses, junk mail and spam on the Internet, we encourage you to review these tips from the National Cyber Security Alliance and protect your business while making the Internet a safer place!
1. Train your employees. Provide training to new employees on topics like keeping a clean machine, following good password practices, avoiding suspicious emails, backing up their work and staying watchful for threats.
2. Protect your customers. Keeping your customers safe requires your own computer systems to be fully protected. This can be accomplished by automating software updates, scanning all new devices, using a firewall and using spam filters.
3. Implement a cybersecurity plan. We recommend that businesses develop a strategic approach to cybersecurity. The strategic approach should include plans to secure existing systems and keep your business security going forward.
4. Monitor threats. Today’s businesses face several major online threats: spam, phishing, viruses and spyware. Being aware of these threats, monitoring for issues and putting plans in place to prevent them will help keep your business secure.
