1. Set a Clean Desk Policy
By implementing a clean desk policy at your business, your employees will limit the chances of misplacing confidential information. Each employee should have at minimum, one lockable desk drawer where they can store sensitive data.
2. Limited Access to Information
In order to help protect your company’s private information, limit who can access records and when these records can be accessed. Controlling this will assist in better management and security.
3. Install Spam, Anti-Malware and Ant-Virus Software
By installing recommended spam, anti-malware and anti-software software in all of your computer systems, you will lower the chance of data hackers being able to access yours and your employees’ information.
4. Strong Passwords
Ensure that all computer passwords are hard to crack. Use complex passwords with a mixture of uppercase, lowercase, numbers and computer symbols, and change the passwords regularly.
5. Monitor Social Media
If your business has social media webpages, make sure that the content you post does not have any important information that others could use for personal gain. Also, be aware of social media users who may ask for important information about your company. If it sounds fishy, it likely is.
