Hackers are so last century!

Dangerous Hooded Hacker Breaks into Government Data Servers and Infects Their System with a Virus. His Hideout Place has Dark Atmosphere, Multiple Displays, Cables Everywhere. As technology evolves, so does the knowledge of hackers. Nobody is immune to cyber-attacks, and even the biggest of corporations worldwide are known to fall victim to unwelcome attacks that place their sensitive data at unthinkable risk. Small businesses are at a much bigger risk, as they simply can’t afford the same security measures as global powerhouses.

Did you know that 60% of business who suffer a cyber-attack shut down in just 6 months?

Thankfully, you don’t have to worry – if you follow our advice!

HTTPS & SSL: Do you accept online payments from your customers? Receive their personal information? If so, an SSL certificate should be non-negotiable. This ensures all ingoing and outgoing traffic is 100% secure and can’t be taken hostage by prying eyes. If your site carries an active SSL certificate, your address will automatically change from HTTP to HTTPS.

Change passwords: Using one password for everything is risky business. Having a different password for every site is key! Try including an impossible-to-decipher combination of caps, letters and numbers. Bad memory? There are plenty of top-notch password managers out there.

Back up, back up, and back up some more!

What would you do if, one day, ALL your business information vanished without a trace? Contacts, emails, invoices – the full works? Stay safe by backing up your data at LEAST once a month – onto a hard-drive or offsite storage service like OneDrive.

We hope this helped. In our minds, hackers are “so last century”. By following our advice, you’ll never have to worry about them again. Get in touch with our team today to find out more about what you can do to safeguard the health and prosperity of your business. Good luck!
