1. Educate your workforce

Make sure your employees know a simple fact: no business is ‘too small’ to be targeted by cyber crime.

2. Loose clicks sink ships

It’s a sad truth, the majority of cyberincidents can be traced back to a single mistake made by an unsuspecting person.

3. Close vulnerabilities

Make sure your workforce is equipped with current software, and convey the importance of accepting software updates when prompted.

4. Make sure to backup

The time you spend setting up a data backup system is a pittance compared to the monumental hassle of retrieving data from a broken hard-drive on an employee laptop.

5. Make sure the cure isn’t worse than the problem

Too often, very-small businesses will purchase software designed for much larger enterprises. This can eat-up your time, making the total cost of securing your business much higher than you bargained for.
