How to stay safe on Computer Security Day, 2018

All it takes is one click on the wrong email for your business data to be compromised, and trust us, it has happened. So on Computer Security Day, 2018, we want businesses to make sure they are taking the right steps to ensure their computers are secure. 

1. Lock, log off and sign out
If staff are away from their desks, make sure they know to lock their computers. By doing this, no one can use their computer to access data that they shouldn't. Furthermore, staff need to log off at the end of the day, and if they are using public computers or public WiFi hot-spots for work, they need to log out of everything work related. 

2. Always have backups
Whether you are using a Cloud solution or not, it is crucial that you have a backup of your data and your systems. CSG Computer Services are a trusted provider for IT security and we can help you get the best security measures in place.

3. Train your staff
This is important in any business. Make sure your staff are trained in your cyber security policies, that they know to create difficult passwords, not to share sensitive information via email if they do not know the sender, not to click on any links they are not sure of and that they log off at the end of the day, as all of this could result in a data breach. 

4. Invest in software
Whether you are an SME or a large organisation, the approach to security should be the same. Fail to prepare, prepare to fail. If you don't take steps to protect your company data, you will be soon find yourself the victim of cyber crime

So why not call CSG Computer Services today, to find out how they can help protect your business from phishing, hacking and more!
