There’s no question that cybersecurity is an important part of managing a business, especially with so much technology in your office. Yet, the real challenge comes from making sure that your employees know and understand best practices, and are willing to adhere to them. Here are some easy ways that you can help your employees understand just how important IT security really is.
Change Passwords Frequently
Password security is a big problem for both the commercial and domestic computer user. Too often you see stories about users having passwords like “password” or “123456.” To help your team avoid this, create a handout that has the following best practices on it:
Of course, a password manager makes these tips much easier to accomplish; particularly one that allows you to share passwords across your organization’s network. You can group together users and distribute credentials as they’re needed, synced in real time to their devices. As a bonus, you can use complex passwords without the frustrations of forgetting and remembering them.
Watch Out for Spam
Hackers will often spread spam in the hopes that someone will slip up and offer important credentials or personally-identifiable information via email or phone call. We’ve outlined a couple of common spam situations below, so that you know what to look for:
Many of the above email threats can be mitigated with an enterprise-level spam blocking solution. Spam blocking keeps suspicious messages from hitting your inbox in the first place, which increases the chances that your employees won’t see them at all. However, there are still some that might manage to squeeze past filters. Therefore, the only real way to prevent these problems is by taking proactive security measures.
