5 ways to stay cyber safe
Four in ten businesses have reported a cybersecurity breach in the last 12 months. The risk of a cyber attack is even higher under COVID-19 as businesses are finding it harder to administer cybersecurity.
With October being cybersecurity awareness month we wanted to share some ways you can stay cyber safe.
- Protect your passwords
We may be biased, but tip number 1 for staying cyber safe is to keep your passwords safe. Using a password manager (forghetti) helps you keep your passwords safe, creates strong passwords and allows you to forget your passwords forever.
- Securing remote workers
With working remotely creating a higher risk for cyber breaches, as a business you should provide your remote workers with a virtual private network (VPN). This acts as an encrypted ‘tunnel’ through unsecured Wi-Fi portals.
- Keep your software up to date
Installing the latest software is important for staying cyber safe. Software updates contain vital security updates to help fight against cyber criminals.
- Back up your data
Backing up your data on a offline device or cloud-based system - if the cyber criminal has hacked one thing, they are likely to get into it all.
- Keep your privacy settings on
Hackers can learn a lot from your browsing history and social media profiles! Use privacy-enhancing settings to make your accounts extra secure, make sure you have enabled these privacy settings and keep them enabled!
