Protecting Your Business from Cybercrime

If you work from your home or have a small office, you may not have an IT manager to keep your most valuable asset – you and your clients’ confidential and financial data—protected from threats like cyber-crime and data loss. Fortunately, advances in security technology and a little common sense go a long way toward ensuring yours is no one else’s business.

First make sure you install, and keep updated, security software with backup and restore ability to recover any information you might lose. It should come equipped with anti-virus, anti-phishing, anti-spyware and intrusion prevention software to keep bad guys and malicious programs out, and a firewall to keep your data in. Also essential to securing your data is common sense. Don’t visit unknown Web sites or click on suspicious links and attachments—they may be phishing attacks aimed at stealing your info. If you’re even slightly unsure about the authenticity of a link or attachment, even if it’s from a trusted friend, simply pick up the phone and verify the source. Nothing is worth putting you and your customers at risk by exposing private data.Mark Kanok
