In 2023, Don’t Let Your Business’s Data Be At Risk!

0

After numerous data security concerns in Australian businesses came to light last year, an emphasis has been placed on providing confidence that client information or business information remains confidential and secure.

As businesses continue to engage in the digitisation of their processes, services and engagement, measures need to be in place and taken to address potential breaches before they can happen.

A breach in your security systems or failure to back up could jeopardise your business’ productivity and profitability. Every year you should take time to secure your data to prevent panic should your computer systems fail.

The effectiveness of backups relies on the frequency and the type of technology used. For long-term solutions, avoid using USB and external hard drives as they need to be regularly updated for new files and can easily be lost or misused. Instead, consider switching to cloud storage. Cloud servers allow instant backups and sharing on multiple devices, and you only pay for what you use.

When you update your backups, take stringent security measures to protect yourself against online threats. Viruses, worms and hackers are threats to your data. Conduct a security audit with an IT professional to understand the vulnerable parts of your IT infrastructure. You should encrypt sensitive data, limit employee access to specific files and download anti-virus systems to prevent a security breach.

Taking these measures is only part of the process. Ongoing monitoring is critical to keeping your business digitally safe. Consult with a professional to create a strategy specific to your business needs.
