Protecting Your Business And Users Online
With the current unprecedented situation we find ourselves in, our businesses are relying on home and remote working more than ever. Will this become the “new normal”? How do we protect our business and users whilst they are all working elsewhere?
It's critical to understand that a potential cyber-attack could lead to anything from mild inconvenience by disabling you from your devices, to severe consequences like harming your network or opening up client data. Without Anti-Virus Software, Spam-Filtering and Web-Filtering Software in place, these could prove fatal for any organisation.
Here at Profile, we've compiled our 4 top tips to share with your users for identifying the warning signs of a cyber- attack, to help protect you and your organisation online:
- Beware of online requests for personal information – don’t ever share.
- Check for legitimate email addresses/links – they may not be who they say they are.
- Watch out for spelling/grammatical mistakes – often a sure sign of a fake email.
- Avoid all contact that requests you to take instant action – check everything before doing! And definitely don’t open any attachments or links if you’re at all unsure.
As you are aware, IT security is crucial to keeping your business' assets and reputation safe and secure. Profile offers and implements market-leading Anti-Virus Software, Spam-Filtering and Web-Filtering Software.
ESET Endpoint Protection is key to protecting your business from infections which can find their way onto your system through the network or users, and from harmful files that could come from downloads, email attachments or disguised as legitimate software. Whilst Symantec Solutions offer critical protection for every laptop, desktop and server in your business.
Make sure you have the right levels of protection to keep your system safer by making it harder for a threat to penetrate it.
