SAYVILLE, N.Y., Feb. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/
Server Bays, expert providers of IT consulting on Long Island, use their knowledge and experience with cyber security to suggest several ways employees can support and enhance the security of your business online.
1. Develop a schedule of regular backups and maintenance. Data should be backed up regularly. Train your employees on how to backup their data and require they back it up weekly, if not daily. Copies of data should be kept separately, in a secure location, and should be checked regularly to ensure they're in good condition. Regular maintenance should also be done, and employees should be aware of whether their computers and work stations need to be updated. Though they may not be the ones responsible for maintaining the devices, they should be able to detect if something is wrong and submit a service order. Anti-virus and anti-malware should be on all devices and regularly updated as part of a maintenance routine.
2. Require employees to use strong passwords and change them regularly. Strong passwords are those that use letters, numbers, punctuation, symbols, upper cases and lower cases. The strongest passwords may appear as a random string of digits, letters, or symbols. Require employees to change their password every month and do not allow them to use any combination of words, letters, or numbers that they have already used. Employees can enhance the security of your business online by using different passwords for every program and account they use.
3. Ask employees to report suspicious behavior. Employees can be a source of security for the company. Train them on what to look for when it comes to cyber security and ask that they report anything unusual immediately.
4. Require employees to use a virtual private network if one is provided. If employees work in public spaces, use public Wi-Fi, or access information using unsecure networks, have them use a virtual private network. Most employees will appreciate the added layer of security and will be happy to accommodate the request.
