A massive global shift to remote working environments has created an open season for cybercriminals. No business - big or small - is safe. Small and medium businesses (SMBs) seemingly have a target on their backs, so strengthening your company’s security posture is essential right now.
There are ways to protect business data against cyber attacks. Here are nine tips to help your business boost resilience to cyber attacks:
1. Conduct a security risk assessment. Understand the most critical threats to your business, like system failures, natural disasters as well as malicious human actions, and determine the impact they may have on your company.
2. Train your employees. Conduct employee awareness training across your entire workforce to educate users on common scams and phishing techniques. Also, because cybersecurity threats are constantly evolving, make sure your training curriculum is relevant and updated frequently.
