Cyber Attacks - How are you protecting your Small Business?

August 10, 2016

Unfortunately, the Australian census website was threatened by Cyber Attacks last night. The Government had to shut down the Census website causing quite a stir across the nation. Do you know that according to 2013 Small Business Technology Survey, National Small Business Association, 44 percent of small businesses reported being the victim of a cyber attack, with an average cost of approximately $9,000 per attack? Imagine this happening to your business. You will quickly lose trust and confidence with your customers not to mention heaps of money.

Here are some simple tips for Small Businesses -

 

1. Make sure all of your organization’s computers are equipped with antivirus software and antispyware. This software should be updated regularly.

 

2. Secure your Internet connection by using a  rewall, encrypt information, and hide your Wi- Fi network.

 

3. Establish security practices and policies to protect sensitive information.

 

4. Educate employees about cyber threats and how to protect your organization’s data. Hold employees accountable to the Internet security policies and procedures.

 

5. Require employees to use strong passwords and to change them often.

 

6. Invest in data loss protection software, use encryption technologies to protect data in transit, and use two-factor authentication where possible.

 

7. Protect all pages on your public-facing websites, not just the checkout and sign-up pages.

 

If you believe you or your business have been threatened by a cyber attack and you are not sure what to do, contact Dunlop IT on Tel: (02) 6559 5444 immediately.
