Cyber Security and Protection means different things to different people so lets start the conversation.

Basic Tips:

  • Use 2FA & complex passwords, don’t share them or write them down
  • Establish Business Processes and Train your staff to use them,here’s some we recommend:
    • Especially around the financial aspects of the business & we recommend you call any supplier that sends you updated bank account details
    • dealing with employees who resign, quit, are fired or go rogue
    • Have a regular, perhaps quarterly, security & process reviews as things change over time
  • Encrypt your data always and if not possible fix it so it can be
  • Consider Information Rights Management
  • Always apply latest updates to your computers and mobile devices
  • Regularly patch the firmware for your Firewall and Wireless Access Points
  • Always change the default password on every device at every opportunity
  • Encourage Staff to highlight security issues if they see them, it’s important for staff to know they are an important part of the security equation and if there’s any real concern please discuss with your IT Provider. You can do this by having┬áregular conversations with your staff about Cyber Security, use the current news cycle for such points of interest, ask them “do you think <insert example here> could apply to our business” and draw out comments…
  • Treat ‘found’ USB thumb drives as toxic and dangerous and if you must insert them then only do so on isolated equipment that you don’t mind trashing or rebuilding from scratch, you are far better to throw these in the trash as USB thumb drives are cheap
  • Never rely on USB thumb drives as a backup device, they are notoriously unreliable and when they die the data is often lost forever
  • Backups:
    • We encourage you to put your data in the cloud and backup that data in the cloud as required.
    • The days of having a cloud backup or offsite backup are gone as these imply that your data’s primary location is on premise when in actual fact it should already be in the cloud
    • restrict the use of USB disks, thumb drives and “sticks”
