Data Protection: Is Your Company Secure?

The rising threat of malicious email attacks comes with a rising level of security concerns.  Is your company protected?   You might want to analyze your level of risk and perhaps implement some added security enhancements to keep your company safe.   Recently, after a security health check, we at HRU implemented some enhancements with the assistance of Providence Consulting (you can visit their website here ). Since the rollout of our newest enhancements, our security posture is better than it’s ever been.     

Cyber Readiness Depends on You!  Here’s a few things you can do right now to help your organization from being a target. 

  1. Have a strategy, even if it means increased security budget or additional resources.
  2. Protect critical assets, information, and applications.
    • Email encryption
    • Two Factor Authentication or Multi-Factor Authentication (2FA/MFA).  This should be required of all users. 
  3. Implement a password management policy.
  4. Employ a backup solution for your information with the ability to recover systems, networks, and data in the event of a compromise or breach.  Regularly and continuously!
  5. Take this threat seriously! IT IS REAL.
  6. Provide ongoing cyber security and cyber awareness training – no less than monthly!
  7. Log off computers EVERY EVENING before leaving the office.
