Anti-virus software

Most businesses these days will be using some sort of computer and IT system. Whether it is an essential part of your business or not, you will be most likely using some sort of IT system. Therefore, it is a way into your business for hackers. Accessing all information on the site and potentially damaging your business. Ultimately, one way to help protect your business is to make sure you have an anti-virus software installed on your IT system and any devices connected to the business.

Hackers can steal your companies’ data, from client information to business accounts. Hackers can also block files and introduce ransomware, meaning they will give you back your data when you provide the money requested.


Strong password policy

As your business grows, you will likely hire more employees. There will be more accounts added to the business all with passwords needed. Therefore, it is essential you keep all passwords in a safe place and update them regularly. Make sure all your passwords are different for each account, making it harder for a hacker for the unfortunate case they do get into your IT system.
