NordVPN: Five Simple Steps to Ensure Online Security for Businesses
“Cultivating a secure mindset should be the entire team’s responsibility. Yet many businesses have not taken even the basic steps to protect their customers’ data, resources, or their employees,” says Daniel Markuson, Digital Privacy Expert at NordVPN. “If an attack or data leak occurs, even huge corporations face serious problems, and for smaller ones, it could be the end of the road.”
According to NordVPN’s digital privacy expert, a vast majority of businesses focus on detecting a cyber attack rather than avoiding it in the first place. However, industry analysis shows that usually cyber attacks remain undetected for 5-6 months. During this time the damage is already done.
Tips on how to ensure online safety at work
1. Understand which assets are the most important
Cybersecurity is not just about computer or smartphone. Almost any connected device can be hacked, so you need an accurate list of all work-related inventory and accounts. Each employee must have their own credentials with an assigned role for each account used. Admin privileges are not for all, especially for accounts that have access to the most important documents.
2. Learn how to protect your business assets
Make sure that all of your computers, tablets, smartphones and other devices are updated regularly. Do the same for software. New updates often make you more secure by fixing vulnerabilities and system bugs. Of course, don’t reuse passwords for different accounts or devices and make sure the passwords are strong. Finally, encrypting your data makes it very difficult to hijack and exploit. A VPN service provider, like NordVPN, can easily do that both for small businesses and huge enterprises.
3. Learn how to understand if something has gone wrong
Keep employees informed about the dangers of clicking on links or attachments from unknown sources. Educate them about phishing attacks or social engineering. Create a cybersecurity test or use one provided online to understand how much your employees know about security online.
4. Have an action plan and react quickly to minimize the impact
Nowadays, even small businesses need to have strict, company-wide policies and steps to tackle cyber crimes effectively. If having such strategy sounds complicated, start with using examples provided online. They are better than nothing.
5. Understand what resources are needed to recover after a breach
First of all, regularly back up your data – offsite and offline. If you lose access to important documents or client CRM, you will be able to restore them quickly.
