Cyber security is more important than ever, but it doesn’t have to be complicated.

Just follow these rules and you’ll be well ahead of the game:

  • Only use secure networks.
  • Encrypt your data – it’s easier than it sounds.
  • Install a strong firewall.
  • Install patches and updates as soon as they become available.
  • Do your research on the most common cyberthreats (you’d better know what phishing is).
  • Develop a company-wide cyber security policy.
  • Make sure your business WiFi router is protected by the WPA2 standard. (Look it up.)
  • Install software that insulates you from malware.
  • Get SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) Certificate Protection, especially if you take payments online.
