Stop whatever you're doing and look around for a minute. Do you know how many IT mistakes could be happening on all sides? The number is probably higher than you want to imagine. Today, we're here to help you get the jump on IT mistakes so your data, machines, and company can be safe and sound.
The best way to avoid substantial security issues like hackers and malware attacks is to be prepared--and managed IT is a great place to start. By helping you understand your tech environment, processes, strengths, and weaknesses - managed IT allows you to take control of your habits and make only the best choices when it comes to security, communication, and efficiency. This includes having a robust knowledge of all the latest threats and tricks; you always want to be one step ahead of trouble.
Of course, it's also important to remember that nobody is perfect. So here are a few things you can do to help everyone avoid innocent IT mistakes and work toward a secure, productive tech environment.
- #1: Take good care of backups.
Communication is critical when it comes to protecting backups. You don't want anyone to delete what they think is an accidental copy, only to realize when you need it most that an important backup is nowhere to be found.
- #2: Know the signs of phishing.
Phishing comes in many forms, but its overall goal is to steal information from your company and employees. Make sure everyone knows what to look for--including suspicious links, emails with poor grammar, and unsolicited messages.
- #3: Protect sensitive information.
Whether it's making sure not to leave documents on the printer tray or remembering never to leave passwords where they can be stolen, everyone has a role to play in protecting data.
