As a business owner, securing all of your network’s devices, training employees to be cyber aware, and improving your general security can be a tall task when you want to focus on running your business successfully. It’s not possible for one person to accomplish all of this, especially in an enterprise business with thousands of connections to the internet.

Follow these simple steps to start the path to a more secure network.

Where is your most important data?

Understanding exactly where your most valuable data and digital assets are located is the first step to becoming more secure. This will allow you to make sure your crown jewels are protected and ensure your business can operate even when under fire from threats. It doesn’t make sense to have all of your data in one place where threat actors can do a sweep and exfiltrate it easily.

Implement basic security protocols across the entire organization 

Password management, multi-factor authentication, and employee awareness training will help your organization avoid falling victim to harmful threat actors. When data gets leaked onto the dark web by threat actors, it can contain passwords and login usernames from accounts. Threat actors have the ability to scan for compromised account credentials and implement them across thousands of logins rapidly. Multi-factor authentication will help mitigate the access they’re trying to achieve by notifying you of potentially unwarranted login attempts and adding a second layer to the accessibility.
