Cybersecurity Best Practices for Small Businesses

Best practices for cybersecurity are becoming increasingly important for companies and individuals of all sizes. Every day, another company is either apologizing for or admitting to a breach of data. Even large conglomerates are prone to falling into cyberattacks, but small businesses are particularly vulnerable. It’s important to know that cybersecurity measures are easy to implement and can enhance your company’s online safety. Everyone should adhere to the fundamental security principles of using strong passwords, regularly updating software and enabling multifactor authentication and using secure email.

For businesses, it is essential to have a dedicated team or consultant to monitor network and device security. This will ensure that vulnerabilities are dealt with immediately after they are discovered. It is also essential to have an emergency plan to ensure that, if an attack succeeds and the company is able to be operating while cybersecurity experts clean up the mess and take care of the harm.

It is crucial to train your employees on what to look for in attachments or emails that seem suspicious or out-of-the normal. Even with the most secure security procedures in place, some attacks are likely to succeed. If an employee is able to recognize the warning signs and knows what to do in the event of compromise it will reduce the time and damage of the attack. This can be done through awareness training and a system that encourages honesty. Businesses should also be able to track and record their employees’ activities on their network and devices to detect any anomalies.
