An anti-virus is your defender:

Computers are vulnerable to viruses and malware. But anti-virus software can be a saver for the data and paves the path for the smooth running of the operating systems.

Many software are available online but be picky while choosing it. Install the anti-virus of a credible company and keep a check on it for update and expiration.

 

Go for strong passwords and data security policy:

There are many guess based or social engineering techniques which are used frequently by the hackers to breach the security.

Strong passwords are the first line guards of your system. So always create a strong and unique password that is not easy to steal.

You might work with the partners who need data sharing or in some cases, the sharing of customer information. When any third party is involved then you have to be more cautious. Choose the businesses which ensure the safety of your data and has strong data security policy.

 

 Train your employees well:

  • They should know that clicking on suspicious or fake websites and bad links, downloading from untrusted sources and clicking to the links which redirect to the unknown website could be a cyber-threat.

 

Be aware of social media and unnecessary web surfing:
