Cyber Security Tips

Cyber Security Tips

  • DO NOT click on links in suspicious emails;
  • DO NOT go to suspicious websites on work computers;
  • DO NOT check unprotected personal emails on work computers;
  • DO NOT save data on local C:\ drive or My Documents; save to network drive (if you are on a server environment) or One Drive folder which gets synced to the cloud
  • Passwords: We recommend changing passwords every 3 months as a minimum. Do not use the same password for everything you do. We do offer a Password Manager program which allows you to not remember any passwords. It uses complex auto-generated passwords, which significantly improves security.
  • Do not give out any server Administrator password to third party software vendors directly. Ask us to create a temporary login that we can disable later.
  • Cyber Security Insurance: no matter how much security we put on, hackers are finding new ways to penetrate your system. We strongly recommend that you speak to your insurer to add Cyber Security cover to your business insurance policy.

 

Cyber Security is our # 1 concern at the moment. Just a few years ago, all your company data and emails resided on your on-premises server in your office. It was much easier to secure your data. As you do more and more in the Cloud, the security risk has significantly increased (and de-centralized).
