If you think that your small-sized business would not attract hackers, think again. Cybercriminals target businesses – big or small, because of the apparent lack in IT security measures.
Small to medium-sized businesses need to think past the size of their organization and realize that everyone is at risk for cyber-attacks: individuals, government agencies, banks, and businesses. Without the right tools and technology to prevent hackers from stealing your information, you are leaving your business prone to a major data breach.

While advanced IT security tools can protect your system from external attacks, majority of the threats are still neutralized by simple office procedures that are often overlooked. Here are 5 simple ways to protect your business:
Never ignore software update notifications. Software updates are not just made to improve the functionality of a certain software; it also serves as a patch for vulnerabilities that can be exploited by hackers. One of the most prolific zero-day exploits came from one of the most well-known software publishers, Adobe – which could have been easily prevented if the users opted to update their software after getting the notification from Adobe.
Keeping track of your passwords can be quite confusing, but that does not excuse you from changing your passwords from time to time. Your password is the easiest way to gain access to your accounts, and it can be easily obtained through social engineering and keyloggers. Ensure that you are always protected by changing your passwords regularly. If you find it difficult to keep track of your passwords, you can opt to use a master password to secure all of your passwords.
Threats to your business are created every day. That’s why antivirus software providers send out updates regularly to keep your system protected from the latest attacks. Allow your antivirus to search for new updates every time you start up your computer.
When an employee leaves your business, ensure that you have taken every step to decommission the digital keys used by your client to ensure that your business is protected. Digital keys can be used to access valuable data that you cannot afford to lose. Keep track of what an employee has access to and immediately decommission digital keys as soon as an employee leaves your company.
Just last year, thousands of systems were infected with CryptoWall, a ransomware that encrypts the files on your system, preventing you from accessing your files unless you pay a certain fee. The prevailing delivery method for Cryptowall is spam email attachments, just like many other destructive malware before it. As a rule of thumb, never open email attachments from people who you do not know. In your business, this means educating your staff about the types of email attachments that they should never open to prevent costly malware damages.

It is refreshing to work with someone who can organize things and describe in plain language. I have a large and growing knowledge base for my work as an architect. I have realized that I can’t do everything, that I do need a team member who can look after this one relatively small by crucial part of my practice.
