The 3 Biggest Cybersecurity Mistakes Business Owners Make That Cost Them Time, Money And Aggravation
Want to avoid the most common and expensive cybersecurity mistakes that most business owners experience? We’ve compiled a list of 3 things you should be doing to save yourself a lot of time and money by avoiding a big, ugly technology disaster.
Have an automated off-site backup system in place.
I cannot stress the importance of this enough. Having an off-site backup of your data will be the equivalent of wearing a seatbelt in a major accident. You don’t think much about it until you need it, and then you will thank the lucky stars you had it in place.
Centralize your data on your server.
At one time, servers made sense only for large organizations because of their high cost and complexity. But today, there are very affordable and easy-to-implement server systems designed specifically for any size small business. Depending on your business needs, your server can be in your office or hosted in the cloud. A server will not only speed up your network, but it will also make backups easier, allow secure remote access (allowing you and your employees to work from home or on the road) and make it much easier to share documents, databases, and printers.
Keep your antivirus up-to-date, and perform weekly ransomware tests.
Almost everyone understands the importance of antivirus protection, but many businesses still do not perform weekly ransomware scans. Ransomware can cause a host of problems, including loose of access to your company files, downtimes and data breaches.
