In light of the recent increase in IT security breaches and in an attempt to better serve our clients, Premier Networx is making several recommendations to help you improve your IT security practices. There are reports of data breaches at large corporations almost daily, and those are just the ones that get publicized. So, you might think that large companies are the only target. However, according to a data breach investigation report by Verizon, 43% of breaches in 2018 involved small businesses and 56% of breaches took months or longer to discover. The risk is real, but there are many simple and inexpensive steps that your business can take to minimize it. Our top recommendations are listed below and we would love the opportunity to speak with you about increasing security measures at your business.
Minimize the chance of a compromised password and unauthorized access to your data by requiring users to use complex passwords that are changed at regular intervals.
Ensure that you and your staff are the only ones with access to company email, and other applications, by requiring a secondary code to gain access. Even if your password is compromised, your data will remain private.
Dark Web Monitoring
Know when your credentials or other sensitive information have been compromised, before it’s too late. We can monitor the dark web for credentials and other information about your business and alert you when something is found, allowing you to take action sooner.
Contact us to discuss these and many other security improvements that are available.
