6 Strategies To Help Prevent A Cyber Attack

Strategies to Prevent a Cyber Attack

Is your company at risk of a cyber attack?

Short answer: YES!

We all are.

In fact, the risk of a cyber attack happening to businesses like yours is increasing every day.

Recent research indicates that a hacker attacks a computer with internet access every 39 seconds (on average), affecting one in three Americans every year.

In addition, the average cost of a data breach in 2020 is expected to exceed $150 million.

So what can your business do to help reduce the risk of a cyber attack in your business?

6 Strategies to Reduce the Risk of a Cyber Attack

  1. Firewalls: Make sure all firewalls and routers are secure and kept up-to-date.
  2. Cyber Security Policy: Implement a cyber security policy that educates employees about the dangers of computer intrusion and how to prevent them.
  3. Software Updates: Download and install software updates for your operating systems and applications as they become available.
  4. Password Protection: Implement a strict password policy and have employees change system passwords every 90 days.
  5. Company Data: Limit employee access to company data and information, and limit authority to install software.
  6. Cyber Liability Insurance: Make sure you’re covered by a cyber liability insurance policy.
