Today's business world is changing at a break-neck speed, due mostly to the rapidly developing technologies we use. It's an exciting time to be in business, but it's also a risky time given the constantly evolving security threats. As fast as the Internet and technology change, so do the threats that come along with it.
Today, we rely on the data we collect and store to do business; we live in the information age. That's why hackers, spammers, defrauders and identity thieves are working harder than ever to obtain information. With big-name security breaches in the news seemingly every day, it's imperative that companies take control of their cyber security.
The best approach to keeping your company safe is to diversify your strategy. Combine smart technology with straightforward policies and procedures to develop a sound security plan.
Cyber security isn't only about how you share information on the web; it's also about how your technologies interact with one another of your network. Be sure you work with trusted vendors for secure technologies like multifunction printers and scanners.
Social engineering scams are still a significant issue for companies around the world. Today's phishing scams often make requests for information look benign by hacking an employee's address book. When an employee sees an email that appears to be from a co-worker, friend, or trusted company, they're more likely to "confirm" information that is sensitive or personal.
