You may think you are immune to cybercrime because you are not a large, multibillion-dollar company. However, cybercriminals know that many businesses do not have strong security measures, exposing their data to breach vulnerabilities.
Incident prevention best practices
1. Ensure your cybersecurity policy supports remote work
Consider the following:
How will employees access company resources off-site?
What security measures should be put in place to protect company data?
How will remote employees collaborate and share data?
Sydow Inc. will identify support mechanisms for employees struggling to adjust to remote work and create a cybersecurity policy that is productive, seamless, and secure.
2. Provide cybersecurity awareness training for employees
As a responsible business executive, you must provide training for your staff. Sydow Inc. will ensure your program is comprehensive, engaging, and adaptable to new threats.
3. Deploy software patches
Threats to your network security are becoming more prevalent as technology advances. Sydow Inc. has the tools and expertise to update your software with the latest security patches.
4. Have active antivirus and antimalware protection
There are numerous antivirus and antimalware solutions on the market. Our team will design and implement the appropriate solution for you and keep it updated and secure.
5. Implement multifactor authentication (MFA)
Multifactor authentication prevents cybercriminals from quickly accessing your precious data since this security measure requires users to verify multiple forms of identification.
6. Use a virtual private network (VPN)
A VPN encrypts your company's data and lets you control who can access it, preventing data breaches and keeping your information safe. Sydow Inc. will ensure your VPN includes robust security features.
7. Deploy single-sign-on (SSO) and password management
SSO streamlines your users’ login process by allowing them to log in once to a central system and then access all the other necessary applications and techniques. At the same time, a password management solution securely manages their passwords.
8. Encrypt your data
Data encryption prevents unauthorized access to your business information. It is a critical tool in cybersecurity since it reduces the exposure of your data to risks and ensures compliance with data privacy regulations.
9. Have backup and disaster recovery solutions
Backup and disaster recovery solutions are critical in case of system failure or data loss. Sydow Inc. custom designs backup and disaster recovery solutions that will keep your business running smoothly, and will test these solutions regularly.
