Some Network Security Tips For Small Businesses

Because of small business, we cannot relax that your business is at low risk for

cyber-attacks because it's too tiny for cybercriminals to notice, it's time to

change your mind. According to Symantec's 2016 threat data, 43% of cyber

attacks target small businesses. This is a significant increase of 18% in 2011.

Today, many small businesses faces the risk of becoming a victim of

cybercrime, and cybercriminals choose their victims with care when looking for

simple goals.

Make sure your data is safe with the following network security tips for small


Educate employees

One of the biggest threats to cyber security for small businesses is human

error. This may include errors, eg. For example, opening accounts on shared

computers, updating passwords on a regular basis, accidentally downloading

malicious files, and providing information about phishing scams.

Informing your employees about good cyber security can help reduce some of

this risk to the network. Tell them how they recognize the signs of phishing

scams and what they can do if they become victims. The software update is

also necessary for security.

Make sure you have security policies and that your employees understand

these rules. These policies should include provisions for the device and

network access, password strength and frequency of changes, file sharing best

practices, security policy enforcement policies, and security procedures. Report

lost or stolen devices. And more.

Keep The Software up to date

another common threat to small businesses

Another common threat to small businesses is obsolete software. Whether it's a

website content management system, financial tracking or inventory software,

antivirus software, or operating systems, you should focus on updating all your


Older versions of software are more accessible to hack because cybercriminals

have learned where the loopholes are. The updates address these

vulnerabilities and improve features to help protect your business from viruses,

malware, and other forms of hacking.

In some cases, software updates are not available for earlier hardware models.

Therefore, you may need to upgrade your computers and other hardware every

few years.

Protect your Wi-Fi

Your company's WiFi network can serve as an entry point for cybercriminals.

However, you can take steps to protect your Internet connection. In the

beginning, we need to ensure that you are using a firewall and that all your

data is encrypted on the network.

If your business needs a public Wi-Fi option for customers or providers, set up

a second network specifically for that purpose.

However, make sure that employees connect to the secure network, not to the

public system, especially when accessing sensitive business information.

Use a VPN

A virtual private network (VPN) can add an extra level of security to your web

browsing. This is especially true for accessing business files in public or non-

secure networks.

VPN providers first pass their data through their servers and hide their IP

address and encrypt the data to protect their browsing history, passwords, etc.

from potential hackers. Also, you give limited access to a VPN; you can reduce

the risk of intercepting passwords or business files when employees access

their accounts and software while on the move.

many big companies are setting up their vpns

Many big companies are setting up their VPNs. While this is not a practical

option for small businesses, it does not mean that you will suffer a complete

loss. Consider working with a VPN service provider. There are many VPN

services on the Internet, although you want to avoid free services, as free VPNs

may not be reliable.

Use two-factor authentication

If you have the option to use two-factor authentication, use it. Databases in the

cloud are usually hacked when users have not enabled authentication or have

made outdated versions available. According to Symantec's 2017 Internet

Security Threat Report, vulnerabilities in the cloud infrastructure pose a

serious threat.

Final words

Be sure to set up security procedures when using and to access cloud services.

Do not leave the responsibility of security to the cloud provider. Cyber security

is a problem for businesses of all sizes, but taking precautions can

dramatically reduce the risk of becoming the next cyber victim.
