How to Keep Your Data Safe for National Cyber Security Awareness Month

Tips to protect your business’s data.

We’re in a tech age, and that means hackers are finding inventive ways to get a hold of and abuse business data. From vendor details, bank account information, employees’ Social Security Numbers, login details, and more, businesses of all sizes are goldmines for hackers. Since October is Cyber Security Awareness Month, we’ve rounded up some tips on what your business can do to keep data safe.

Back Up

Always back up your business data on a secure server. If possible back up to the cloud – and ensure that your login details are safe. Businesses should regularly back up data in case of a disaster, from fire, natural disasters, and cybersecurity breaches.

Limit Access

How many of your employees can access the sensitive information? You may find that it’s surprisingly easy once they are on the system. To safeguard your data, limit who can access the information, restricting it to only the essential team members.

Update Software

Anti-malware and anti-virus software helps to detect threats – so make sure they’re installed and kept up to date!

Secure Cyber Liability Insurance

Cyber liability insurance is designed to help your business if it does fall victim to a security breach. From recovering data to keep your business’s reputation in check, this coverage is valuable to have.
