Close Security Gaps With Security Updates

Businesses need to work hard to protect themselves from the many cyber threats lurking on the web. Security software and proper network configuration are a good start, but there are a few steps business owners and leaders can take to protect themselves as new threats are discovered. Good security habits will keep the company’s data safe and keep hackers out of the system. Most importantly, security updates will keep the operating system free of security gaps and security software up to date on the latest threats.

Network settings are vital to preventing spyware from uploading data to the internet and keeping hackers out. Physical connections are usually safe, but it’s important to check for unknown hardware and ips often. Wireless networks are considered pretty unsafe. WiFi configurations should never be changed by anyone other than the system administrator. Making a single change could leave the system wide open to attack. When the network is deployed, a trained professional should go through the entire system to make sure there are no settings that could allow easy access to the system.

Security software is very important for stopping malicious software of all types. New threats are being developed constantly. Businesses will need to be sure their software includes the latest definitions and is configured properly. The security software should also include heuristic protection for detecting threats that haven’t been defined yet. It’s also important that enterprise-class software is used. Typical off the shelf security software won’t be enough to protect a business. Standard security software simply isn’t up to the task of securing the number or types of network connections businesses use.

Data encryption is the final defense against hackers and malicious software. All storage media should be encrypted to prevent unauthorized access. Physical drives, network drives, and cloud drives should all have enterprise-class encryption installed on them just in case a hacker manages to make a successful attack on the system. The data on these drives should also be encrypted. If a hacker manages to make it through the security system, they won’t be able to use the data without a key.
