The digital revolution is a marvel which has allowed communication and trade to open up internationally, changing the way we interact with others irrevocably. Whether it’s a website, online shop or other web based infrastructure, it’s essential for all businesses to be online now.

Get SSL Registered

Having your website incorporate the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser will ensure that data remain private. Seeing the SSL shield will automatically reassure customers that they are safe on your site.

Install Security Software

Ensuring that all company computers are equipped with the latest security software prevents you from getting anything nasty on the system, which could lead to vulnerabilities.

Keep Software Updated

Most software programs automatically update to defend computers against any posed threats, and you should be sure to keep on top of this simple and effective measure.

Employ A Professional

Particularly for those with online shops and ecommerce sites, it is vital to have regular PCI checks on your website. Nettitude offer solutions for analysing, testing and monitoring your security. By identifying vulnerabilities, they help you to create a protection against anything that comes up.

Protect Devices

Anything that connects to the internet exposes you to vulnerabilities, and protecting all devices increases your security. This includes not opening suspicious looking emails, links and exercising caution when using external devices such as USB sticks.

Preventing Phishing Attacks

One of the most common cybersecurity issues is phishing. This can be detrimental to a company, simply because phishers trick your clients by emulating an email from you, trying to ascertain certain personal information.

Some ways to prevent this from happening to you and your business are by monitoring, or if you can afford it, registering sites with similar spelling to yours. This is where phishers lurk! You can also perform regular internet checks for your company logo. Keep access to this limited and if you see it coming up somewhere it shouldn’t, investigate. Use an email address for customers to associate with your brand, to ensure that any communications supposedly from you, actually are!
