Five tips to keep your company safe online

Five tips to keep your company safe online 

With cyberthreats becoming an ever more common problem, let’s look at a number of ways you can keep your company data safe online. 

The internet is a vast space and while it can be indispensable for companies to rely on cloud computing for many aspects of their business, there are some easy tips to follow in order to keep your data safe. 

  1. Use Strong Passwords 

Require your employees to use strong and individual passwords for their work-related accounts, such as email, remote access files and more. Passwords should have at least 8 characters and should include capital letters, numbers and special characters. 

  1. Set Up Two-Factor Authentication 

Most modern-day software – including offerings from Microsoft and Google – allows two-factor authentication (2FA). This means that in order to log in, users need to input a second encrypted code, usually stored on a cellphone. This is basically how we have been using internet banking for years. 

  1. Update Software 

This might be controversial, but many software updates also contain indispensable bug and security fixes which might be exploited by outsiders to gain access to your company’s system. Ask your employees to always install updates to your software as soon as they are available. 

  1. Be careful on public Wi-Fi 

As people are working more remotely, it might be tempting to spend a couple of hours working from the local coffee shop, using their free internet. However, this might cause problems because malicious hackers could get hold of your passwords as you are logging in. If possible, use the private hotspot from your own phone, or download sensitive data onto your laptop before you get there. 

  1. Beware of suspicious links 

Did Betty from accounting just send you a link to see her holiday pictures? If something looks strange, report the email to IT before you click on it. Malicious links could be very difficult to detect but it’s always better to be extra careful. A careless click could spell many problems for your company.

Once the above questions have been answered, a disaster recovery and backup readiness index can be calculated based on the following scale: 

  • Level 1: Inadequate – The organization has significant gaps in its disaster recovery and backup posture.  
  • Level 2: Developing – The organization has some disaster recovery and backup processes in place, but significant improvements are needed.  
  • Level 3: Mature – The organization has a mature disaster recovery and backup posture, but there is room for improvement.  
  • Level 4: Robust – The organization has a strong disaster recovery and backup posture and is well-prepared to address potential disruptions.  
  • Level 5: Exceptional – The organization has a comprehensive and mature approach to disaster recovery and backup. 

The disaster recovery and backup readiness index can be calculated by assigning a score of 1-5 to each question based on the level of readiness demonstrated. The scores are then averaged across all questions in each category to determine the readiness level for that category. The overall disaster recovery and backup readiness index is calculated by averaging the readiness levels across all categories. 

Level 1: Basic
You have minimal cybersecurity processes in place and face a high risk of cyberattacks. Immediate attention and significant improvements are necessary to enhance your security posture.

Level 2: Developing
You have some cybersecurity processes in place but require substantial improvements to reach a mature state. You should focus on strengthening your policies, procedures, and security controls.

Level 3: Mature
You have a solid cybersecurity posture, but there is still room for improvement. You should continue enhancing your processes, monitoring capabilities, and incident response practices.

Level 4: Advanced
You have a strong cybersecurity posture and are well-prepared to address potential threats. However, you should remain proactive and stay abreast of emerging threats and technologies to maintain your advanced level of security.

Level 5: Leading
You have a comprehensive and mature approach to cybersecurity. You are a leader in cybersecurity best practices and continually innovate to stay ahead of evolving threats.
