Train Your Employees and Back Up Your Data as a First Line of Defense
Fighting ever-evolving cyber threats involves multiple methods, but your first defense must be deploying a working backup solution and training your staff members to be aware of the major cyber threats roaming the online space.
Micro Visions can provide you with on-demand, interactive employee cybersecurity-awareness training that covers different scenarios and educates your employees on how to deal with and fight common threats. Another method to test your cyber defenses is to perform simulated phishing attacks on a regular basis to identify weak points and users who need even more training.
You can minimize the risk of phishing attacks through employee training but protecting against ransomware and malware is another thing altogether. There is still no 100% protection against ransomware, and the best defense remains the backup of your data on a daily basis and then storing file copies both off and on-site.
A working data backup and recovery strategy is key to securing business continuity, no matter your core business activity. At the end of the day, losing business-critical data such as customer records, financial statements, or a company database is detrimental to business operations and longevity.
