As the COVID-19 pandemic put a spotlight on security practices for many businesses, I’d like to share with you some key cyber security preparedness recommendations that we here at Teoma have identified:
Train your employees on basic web and email safety practices. Many cyber-attacks are disguised as links, attachments, or email messages. Are your employees trained to identify suspicious activity?
Maintain an internal cyberattack “task force” and have a solid emergency plan should an attack occur. What happens if you cannot access any files/use computers/use phones for a day/week/month? Do you have a person responsible for assisting in a crisis situation? Do you have contingency plans for what the rest of your employees will do?
Determine the business cost of a cyber-attack. Can you really afford downtime in your business?
Invest in a combination of antimalware software, spam filters, and remote monitoring software. This will help to automate some of the cybersecurity processes. Some software products can even identify, isolate, and solve issues all on its own.
