Cybersecurity is a massive concern for many organizations, irrespective of their size. Cybersecurity threats have amplified as companies extend their commitment to remote workforces. Therefore, enterprises must have a robust cybersecurity strategy and incident response plan to protect businesses from scams and security threats. In this article at IT Chronicles, Pia De Los Reyes shares some proactive and preventive measures to secure your data.
Protect Your Business From Devastation
Consider Cyber Insurance
Cyber insurance helps cover the financial losses resulting from cyberattacks. Remember, the cost of dealing with a cyberattack is much more than just repairing the databases, strengthening security, or replacing the devices. “A cyber insurance company will often take responsibility for recovering data, repairing damaged devices, protecting your company from civil lawsuits, and restoring your reputational damage incurred from an attack,” says Reyes.
Train Your Staff
Your staff members are frontline cyber defenders. Therefore, keep your employees up-to-date on the latest cybersecurity threats. Today, phishing and ransomware attacks are more evolved and dangerous. To keep your business safe, educate your employees on:
