3 Critical Actions to Protecting Your Business’ IT


IT security is constantly changing. New threats are popping up every day, and organizations are regularly upgrading applications and services, which can create opportunities for hackers to enter your network. With some of your applications running in-house and some in a SaaS or Hybrid configuration, being on the forefront of new threats, knowing how to prevent them, and knowing what to do when they happen is imperative to protecting your company from a security breach.

Cybersecurity is important for companies of all sizes. Small businesses are just as at risk for cyberattacks as larger companies, and should be prepared for a breach at all times. Furthermore, according to a report by Keeper Security and the Ponemon Institute, 50 percent of small businesses have been breached in the past 12 months.

Here are 3 actions critical to protecting your business from cyber attacks:

  1. Be proactive
    Through the Microsoft offerings, are the Microsoft patching and apps up to date? Are anti-virus and malware protection in place and working? To best prevent different attacks and potential breaches, it is important to make sure security and software updates are proactively applied as they become available.
  2. Maintain real-time security protection
    Are you running automatic updates? Are they being pushed to all devices? On email, are transmissions encrypted? Do you have commercial grade spam and virus filtering?
  3. Act immediately
    If there is an attack, do you have a plan in place to isolate issues in each workstation? Do you have the ability to deploy software agents on all of systems?

If your answers to any of these questions was “no,” you may be at risk for a cyber attack. Effective cybersecurity is essential to the success and even survival of most companies – make sure your business is protected.
