With cyber security threats at an all-time, safeguarding sensitive data from cyber-criminals is vital. From business conglomerates like Sony and Home Depot, hackers are showing the world that no business is immune to cyber threats. To ensure a secure business practice, here are some of our best practices in cyber-security.

Choose Passwords Carefully

Some of the most prominent organizations have weak passwords, making it easy for hackers to attack their systems and retrieve sensitive data. Choose company-wide passwords that are strong, including a combination of lower and upper case letters, numbers and symbols.

Update Old Software

Employees oftentimes postpone software updates because they require time for the computers to update, which equates to less time working. However, these updates are more than annoying reminders. Installing the updates hinder attackers from taking advantage of the obvious problem with the software.

Encrypt Information

Encryption is essential in file protection. Businesses should employ file sharing encryption methodologies to protect sensitive information they don’t want exposed to the public.

Cyber-theft is on the rise and continues to increase as technologies become more intuitive, and hackers along with them. Protecting your business is no longer a precaution—it’s a necessity. Jakoba wants to help your company thrive at every lever. To learn more, reach out to us at info@jakoba.com.
