It’s common practice to use digital technology to enhance your business practices. From billing clients to maintaining employee records, many of today’s business practices happen digitally. However, despite the ease of access and conveniences of these technologies, digital business practices pose a security risk to your business. During National Cyber Security Awareness Month, take stock of your cyber security practices. Invest in cyber liability insurance, and check out these ways to help reduce your risk of a cyber disaster.
If you don’t need it anymore, get rid of it. When it comes to your business practices, it’s imperative that you take every step possible to minimize your risk. However, if you keep old information with sensitive information, you increase your risk for a disaster. Review what you have, what you need, and what you can toss so that you can better manage your cyber security.
As a business owner, you should invest in the most effective security measures such as firewalls, anti-spyware, and anti-malware. However, without regular updates, you leave your company information exposed to a variety of threats. Cyber security is a constant arms race between hackers and the systems that help protect you. As one makes advancements, so must the other. That’s why it’s important always to ensure that your systems are up to date.
When running a business, you give your employees access to a variety of information. However, access to too much information can put the security of your business at risk. Reduce your risk by limiting employee access to information. Keep it on a need to know basis so that you can better control who sees sensitive information.
Ensure that your business is as safe as can be with the right cyber liability insurance. The professionals at Phocus Insurance can find you the best policies for your needs. Located in Phoenix, Arizona we serve all your personal and commercial insurance needs. Contact us for more information.
