How to Protect your Business from Malware

Enforce Strong Passwords

This seems like an obvious one, but all too often employees are using weak passwords that are the same for various different accounts across the business. It is important to have strong passwords that have no link to anything in the business or yourself so they can’t be guessed easily. As additional security, passwords should be changed frequently (every 3 months maximum) and they should be different for every separate account and every employee.

 Train your Staff

Human error can be one of the biggest security threats. It is very important to train every member of staff on how to detect malware and what to do when it is detected. 

Back Up Files

If the worst still happens, backups (which should also be protected with software and encrypted) will help to bring your business back  to where it was before the attack so you don’t have to start again from scratch. If you backup all of your files regularly, you should be able to get your business back up and running whilst only suffering minor losses.
