How to keep your company’s important data safe?

Nowadays it is very easy to lose important data due to the high amount of hackers. But not only hackers pose a threat to your company. Your data may get lost, accidentally deleted by employees, or corrupted by computer viruses. It can be also damaged during a system crash.

How to prevent this kind of situation and protect your company’s data? There are many ways to keep it safe. Have a look!

Create an appropriate password to keep your company’s data safe.

First: don’t forget about setting complicated passwords. Remember - the more difficult your password is, the safer your data is. Do you know how to make your password not easily guessed? Longer is stronger so create it with more than eight signs. It should contain a combination of random characters - not only letters but also numbers, and some specific characters. You should also change your passwords frequently to keep your data safe. Don’t forget to log off after use and don’t save your passwords in your browser. Keep them in a safe place and make sure no one outside of the company has access to them.

Which place is safe for your passwords? Try out some password managers. They allow you to generate and store all of your passwords for applications and services that you use. We recommend LastPass, sysPass, 1password, Dashlane, or KeePass.

Don’t forget to educate your employees about security.

You should carry out some training for your employees to make sure they understand all the security rules in the company. It’s not enough to conduct this kind of security course only once, at the beginning of someone’s job, during his onboarding - it’s insufficient. You should repeat it more often and regularly!

Update your software to keep your company’s data safe.

If you update your devices and operating system to the newest versions, you can prevent being hacked.

We know that updates take a long time, but they are necessary for data protection. They also occur in unexpected moments but you have to be patient if you want to keep your company’s data safe. Installing an antivirus program on all devices in the company will also be helpful.

Use the cloud to back up your company’s data.

Are you afraid of losing your company’s data? Data loss can happen at any time by human mistake, system failure, or even natural disaster. You will not even have a chance to react. Make a backup of all the files in the cloud so you will be able to quickly and easily get a copy of it in the future. Cloud backup is the most cost-efficient way to store and save data.

Ensure that the old devices are properly cleaned.

Your computers may have a lot of valuable information on them. Always when you’re throwing out old devices, make sure that they are unreadable. How to do that? You can destroy them, clean magnetically or use specific software that will safely make them clean. Thanks to that, the information will not end up in the hands of someone you don’t want to.

Follow the above rules and be sure that your company’s data will remain secure so you can relax and get back to work. :)
