When a business gets hacked or loses data, it can turn out to be a problem that won’t go away. If your business is seeking to get the security it needs to protect the welfare of your employees, your clients, and your substantial investment, you have to start to look at the bigger picture. The security of your business happens at three levels and you need a plan for each. Today, we’ll take a look at these three levels.
Some people absolutely feed off planning for physical security, some don’t. The ones that do typically understand that there are a lot of people out there who want access to what they have. The ones that don’t focus more on accessibility. Regardless of which type of person you are, you need to understand that without physical security in place, you probably won’t need any other security, because you won’t have a business to secure.
Since it is so important, there are several things you can do to ramp up your business’ physical security protocols. Two of them include:
While physical security is an obvious place to invest, because it doesn’t just keep people that you don’t want in, out, it also can prevent social engineering attacks.
Unfortunately, cybercrime can be perpetrated in many different ways. It can come from inside your office and outside. Most attacks are carried out by people outside of your network, but without the mistakes and negligence of someone with access (as we’ll touch on later), businesses would deal with so many. To completely protect your network you’ll need to incorporate these strategies:
You’ve got all the tools in place, you’ve tested your security, and you are monitoring everything. What’s left to do? The most difficult part, unfortunately.
With so many security breaches being a result of carelessness, having a dedicated plan to train your employees on the best cybersecurity practices will undoubtedly help your overall success. Your business is facing a tough situation. Millions of phishing emails are sent each day, and to keep them from affecting your business, you’ll need a well-trained workforce.
