Cyber threats are increasing, and with more and more reports of cyber-attacks and organized crime moving into the business organization arena, companies and executives cannot take these threats lightly.
Here are some tips that can help prevent potential cyber attacks:
1-Double check before clicking or downloading A mouse click is all it takes to inadvertently grant access to your computer, accounts, and information, or unleash malware on your systems.
2-Be wary of short, generic messages Scammers won’t write a long email; they’ll try to pass off something short and generic as harmless, hoping you’ll click quickly without thinking.
3-Watch out for group emails Sending an email “from the CEO” to a staff or employee email list is the fastest way for a scammer to attack and affect an entire business.
4-Write a Cyber Policy for Employees Make sure your company has a procedure for all requests involving sensitive information or payments, and make sure that procedure is followed.
5- Mobile security is as important as Computer Security Mobile threats can be divided into four basic categories: application-based threats, web-based threats, network-based threats, and physical threats.
6- Use enterprise-grade VPNs This will avoid getting snooped on while traveling.
