Be cyber secure this holiday season.
During the holidays businesses tend to see an uptick in cyber attacks
and in 2020 we expect it to be (as much of 2020 was) worse than usual.
Here are a few small tips to make your holiday season merry, bright
and cyber secure.
- DO NOT CLICK ON LINKS. When on a work device
or any computer with access to your office network,
online shopping including clicking on links on all social
media platforms is highly discouraged. These links,
emails, and shopping sites are one of the largest
malware sources and can lead to ransomware attacks
- USE STRONG PASSWORDS. Use 2-Factor
Authentication on any program with sensitive data or
access to work networks. Now is a great time to remind
your teams to update their passwords and use long,
complicated and unique passwords for each site login.
- TALK ABOUT CYBERSECURITY. Make sure
employees know they can always come to someone
in the office to report suspicious emails or links.
- UPDATE. UPDATE. UPDATE. With so many
employees working from home, the likelihood
that every device has the latest anti-virus updates,
software updates, or browser updates is very low.
Make sure all employees know when working on
any device (company owned or their own) that
every update is important and should be installed
immediately. These always contain critical security
- START 2021 OFF RIGHT. A cyber insurance policy
can help when the worst happens. Put a cyber policy
in place before the new year and stay protected all
A cyber insurance policy, also referred to as cyber risk insurance, is designed to help an organization mitigate risk exposure by offsetting costs involved with recovery after a cyber-related security breach or similar event.
