The average cost of a data breach for small businesses in the United States is $117,000, which can be devastating for most.
So, what can you do?
1. Invest in Effective Endpoint Security
How you protect the corporate network when it’s accessed via laptops or mobile devices.
2. Establish an Incident Response Plan
How you plan to detect, respond to, and recover from security incidents should be discussed and written out with all involved parties.
3. Evaluate Your IT Security Resources
Audit your risk levels associated with enterprise resources and government regulations specific to your industry, and then remediate or mitigate vulnerabilities.
4. Create a Multi-factor Authentication Password Policy
You should require a minimum of 8-12 characters, with a mix of uppercase and lowercase letter, numbers, and special characters, and requiring password changes every couple of months.
5. Constantly Update Your Policies
Hackers are always evolving, and the only way to protect your business is to evaluate and recalibrate your security systems often.
