10 Effective Ways to Ensure Your Security is Not Compromised

The pandemic forced many businesses to go remote. As the world’s online presence grew, so did the adoption of digital services. At the same time, new devices and technologies are coming out faster and shorter, like cloud computing and the Internet of Things (IoT). Since cybercriminals are a threat, cybersecurity measures are more important than ever to make sure these technologies are always safe. Prevention is the most important thing, and here at ATET Security, we will talk about 10 effective steps you need to take to keep your corporate security safe. 

Cybersecurity is all about securing cyberspace, protecting users and their privacy, and enforcing strict security regulations and protocols that will prevent any form of cyberattack.

  1. Increase Awareness 

In Singapore, there were 137 cases of ransomware in 2021, a 54 percent increase from the year before. This is a sign that cybercrime is getting worse because cybercriminals are getting smarter and using more complicated and advanced tools to attack businesses and people. Businesses are vulnerable to the tricks hackers use to catch people who don’t know what’s going on because they don’t know about security or haven’t been taught about it. ATET Security gives business staff a lot of training on how to protect themselves from cybercriminals. 

Scams and phishing emails can also lead you to websites that look real and try to get you to give sensitive information. Hackers can also use pop-ups to entice you to click, only to steal valuable information. Hence, it’s extremely important to learn how to weed out these cybercriminals, and ATET Security educates on all the information needed to prevent these cyberattacks. ATET Security also has different types of cybersecurity that can help a business manage risk and cyber resources. 

  1. Data Leak Protection 

Data leak protection is another area of concern to make sure that customers and, more generally, businesses are safe and don’t lose their privacy. If hackers get a hold of employee credentials, they could get access to consumer data, business data, and other sensitive information. ATET Security can help recommend data protection tools and techniques to prevent data loss. 

  1. Keep Software and Systems Fully Up To Date 

Cyberattacks can happen when systems aren’t up to date. This leaves businesses open to cybercriminals who take advantage of these weaknesses. They gain access to your network, and once they’re in, it’s too late to take any preventive measures. 

One good way to stop that from happening is to make sure that all systems and software updates are done on time. By making program features better, devices run more reliably and smoothly, which makes the business’s security less vulnerable. 

  1. Install Firewall 

Firewalls are network security devices that watch incoming and outgoing network traffic and filter it based on the security policies of an organization. A firewall is essentially the barrier that sits between a private internal network and the public Internet.  Hence, setting up a firewall will protect against external, unwanted access. This will make enterprise networks much safer and let organizations protect their assets and data from people who want to do harm. But for this, proper firewall configuration is essential. We offer this service and other high-end cybersecurity solutions at ATET Security to make sure that your security is safe. 

  1. Ensure Your Data Is Always Backed Up 

One of the safest ways to make sure you’re being proactive about the security of your data is to back it up. If something unexpected happens, like a person making a mistake, a piece of hardware breaking, a virus attack, a power outage, or even a natural disaster, backed-up data prevents downtime, data loss, and serious financial loss. 

Fortunately, new technology has made it easier than ever to backup data at any time and from any location. Speak with our experts to learn how to instill this in all of your employees. 

  1. Endpoint Security 

Endpoint security involves securing endpoints or entry points between networks and devices. It keeps malicious viruses and campaigns from taking advantage of it and putting the firm’s security at risk. Endpoint protection systems of today are made to quickly find, analyze, block, and stop attacks that are already happening. This is why, as a preventive measure against cyber attacks, endpoint security is critical. For more information on how endpoint protection can benefit your enterprise, contact ATET Security. 

  1. Secure Your Wifi 

If you don’t have wifi security in this day and age, you need to establish one right now. Any device can be left vulnerable to infections through an open network, and said device can easily put a business at risk when sensitive information is exposed to cybercriminals. 

Putting a password on your wifi is a simple and effective way to protect the security of your business. 

  1. Password Protection

A strong and effective password can stop hackers from getting into systems in a lot of ways. In addition to this, setting up different passwords for every application would also benefit the system. Changing these passwords regularly also ensures a higher level of protection against internal threats. Don’t underestimate the power of a good password. 

  1. Access Management 

Businesses use access management solutions to authenticate users, give them permission to use applications and IT systems, and keep track of who uses what. If you give access permissions to anyone in your business, they could install software that could put your systems at risk. So, access management protects the security of your business by letting only authorized people do tasks that need verification and permissions. Closing this gap will benefit your security by safeguarding your business. 

  1. Policy 

Having a cybersecurity policy is a great practice to ensure all staff recognise the threats and risks of potential data breaches, 

Having clear guidelines will help to protect your cyberspace. If you already have policies in place, go through them again to ensure there are no loopholes or gaps that can risk your cybersecurity. In addition, it would be great to have a disaster recovery plan so that staff is not only fully aware of the consequences but also prepared for what to do in case of such occurrences. At ATET Security, we know how to do thorough risk assessments and offer preventative security measures to keep your company’s security in check. 

With cyberattacks on the rise, it’s important to take these preventive steps. Even though you can’t fully protect your business from cybercriminals, there are many things you can do to keep yourself safe. These hackers can take private information, sell it, trade it, or even change it in a way that hurts a business for good. When you hire ATET Security to take care of all your cybersecurity needs, you’ll be able to sleep better at night.
