Mastering Cybersecurity: 4 Essential Steps

Mastering Cybersecurity: 4 Essential Steps

Keeping our accounts clean and security measures up-to-date is important, but it can also be overwhelming. That struggle can make it easy for cybersecurity measures to fall through the cracks. Unsure of where to start when beefing up your security? Follow our 4 steps.

Step 1: Start With a Security Audit  

You should perform a security audit to identify potential vulnerabilities in your accounts and technology. This can include reviewing access logs, checking security settings, and updating software and firmware to the latest versions. 

Step 2: Review Your Existing Passwords 

Use strong, unique passwords. It’s essential to use strong passwords that are difficult to guess. This means using a combination of upper and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols. Additionally, each account should have a unique password to prevent a breach of one account leading to access to all accounts.   

A password manager could be an effective tool for your company. It helps by creating and storing complex passwords, so users don’t have to remember them. 

 Step 3: Add an Additional Layer of Security 

Two-factor authentication provides an extra layer of security to accounts by requiring a second form of verification before allowing access. This can include a code sent to a mobile device or biometric authentication like fingerprint or facial recognition.

 Step 4: Schedule Ongoing Maintenance 

An MSP can manage this maintenance of your cyber security such as reminders to update passwords regularly, user awareness training, regular security assessments, and continuous data backup, to name a few. 

By following these 4 steps, your company can begin to secure the technology, passwords, and accounts utilized by the business to ensure the safety of sensitive information. To learn more or for assistance through this process, contact us today at 856-282-1131 or visit us here.
