It is very important to secure your business from intruder attacks both physically and digitally. The hackers are getting more and more sophisticated with their attacks with time. To combat the advanced methods that they are using, you need to properly apply technology to secure your business.
Use a firewall
You must be using a network to connect all the devices internally in your organization. It is necessary to install a firewall to create a barrier for unauthorized users to enter your network. A firewall is a gate that can be applied using hardware or software or the combination of both to make your network secure and block the entry of any unauthorized users. Now organizations are setting up an internal firewall as well as an external firewall to provide more security to their network. It is a primary defense that can be set up against cyber-attacks. It is useful to install a firewall in a home network also since the hackers can try to hack in your home network if you are working in any key position in an organization to gain entry to the business network of your organization.
Installing physical safety device to protect your network
To provide safety to physical intrusion you can install multiple security cameras around and inside your organization. You can see the activities outside your organization from a control room to detect any threats. You can install an alarm panel that can give alerts to you and your organization in case someone is trying to tamper with the system. This can make it easier to deal with threats as the system will automatically detect an anomaly. Other sensors can be installed in your organization to detect threats and changes in the internal environment of your organization.
Backing up all data regularly
It is a very good practice to keep regular data of an organization and store them properly in a safe location until they are relevant. After they become irrelevant and unnecessary to your organization they can be properly destroyed so they don't fall in the wrong hands. Cloud can be used to back up data regularly or raid configuration can be done in your system to automatically create a backup of every file. It should be done regularly as the data produced are vital to the organization. Properly protecting the data is vital for the well functioning of the organization. It is also important to destroy the data once they become irrelevant to your organization. While it is still irrelevant to you hackers can use the information to detect a weakness in your system and infiltrate the system using the data. To properly destroy the data you can drill holes in the magnetic part of the hard disk drive to make sure that they are properly destroyed.
Installing latest antivirus software
To keep your business secure it is very important to regularly update the latest anti-virus software in your system. Hackers use viruses like a trojan horse, spyware, ransomware, worm, malware, and other types of virus to break down your system or simply to cause harm to your system. The viruses are better programmed by hackers constantly so they can hack the system. So it is very important to regularly update the antivirus system in your workstation so it is safe from any sort of attacks.
Secure the wireless network
If you have guests visiting your organization you can make another network to allow guests to use the internet. Hackers are just looking for ways to enter your network. A wireless network is a great way to get access to your network. You can keep the guest network different from the internal network of your organization so no intruder can enter the main network of your organization. Also, experts should keep track of the MAC addresses of devices that are entering your system.
