Your company’s information is extremely valuable and it is important to protect it from outside threats. Now is a perfect time to take a step back and evaluate whether or not your network and data are secure enough. Many companies are more vulnerable to cyber-crime than usual and may not be as prepared for a cyber-attack as they think they are.
Amidst the coronavirus pandemic, an increase in cyberattacks is likely. Here are two reasons why we expect to see this:
1. Professionals in all fields are increasingly depending on digital tools.
2. Cybercriminals have an opportunity to catch people off guard in the middle of a crisis. People may make mistakes or overlook something they normally would not due to distractions.
Having access to digital devices and internet is more important than ever, and companies must take measures to keep this access, and their sensitive data, from being compromised.
The graphic above displays five categories of a cybersecurity system that are essential for protecting your company from a data breach. Damage control after such an attack can be financially draining and difficult, or impossible from which to recover.
Web Security protects your network by automatically detecting and blocking risky websites and online threats. Even legitimate websites can have a virus or worm. Having Web Security services ensure that unknown sites are tested before employees can have access.
Email Security not only requires the right software, but the right education for your employees. It is important to teach employees how to recognize fake emails and phishing. They may be tricked into clicking something that could lead to a virus. Employees may even receive a fake email asking for confidential company data and not even realize it because it looks so real. GFI Digital can help with all of this. Our award-winning hosted spam filtering will block spam, viruses, phishing schemes, offensive content, hacking attacks, and other threats. Spam is filtered before going to your network, keeping your on-site network resources from being impacted in any way. You can be assured you will receive valid emails with the most accurate spam filtering possible.
If your office burned down or your network was hacked, would your company still be able to run? Backup and a Disaster Recovery planning is the key to safeguarding important data. Many people have experienced a time where one of their devices broke, was hacked, or obtained a virus and they lost data they had stored on it. Having all of your data in one place puts the entire business at risk. GFI Digital provides options for a backup and disaster recovery plan to prevent losing data when something unexpected happens.
Additionally; Firewall, Antivirus, and Antispyware Malware are all forms of protection that can shield your company from unwanted attacks. Only the most sophisticated anti-malware techniques can detect & remove malicious programs such as viruses, worms, Trojans, rootkits, dialers, spyware, and malware that are constantly evolving and becoming harder to find and remove from your computer. Our network services are updated regularly to quickly detect, destroy, and prevent malware.
Along with having employees change their password regularly, implementing Multi-Factor authentication can help prevent password phishing. This requires additional information, along with the password, to gain entry. Usually, multi-factor authentication is done by verifying your identity by entering a username and password and confirming your identity again on another device. Without physically having this other device, a hacker cannot pretend to be you. Companies commonly have their logins set up so that an employee enters a username and password on their computer and verifies it on their phone, whether it be via app or text message.
