Hit Back Hard Against Malware

Hit Back Hard Against Malware

The threat landscape is filled with more types of malware than ever. To keep your business’ network running effectively, it’s important to have a strategy to keep malware out. Today, we’ll talk about a few basics you should know to keep your cybersecurity strategy working properly.

Under A Thumb

Are you aware that there are readily available websites that are strictly devoted to providing the default factory passwords for devices of all types? With these passwords, and a little bit of knowledge about what hardware you have, people could access your network easily?

To combat this, you need to think about every single access point your business has and lock them down. Once they are locked down, you will also need to secure your online accounts and your physical location’s access points. To do this you should take time to document all of your network’s possible entry ways and do what you need to do to secure them. You can do this by ensuring that every access point is secured with different passwords (and two-factor authentication where possible).

Keep Your Antivirus Updated

The antivirus solution you use keeps out unwanted entities. But what happens when malicious entities aren’t recognized by the antivirus solution? That’s right, it passes right by, infiltrating your network. To avoid this scenario, you will want to ensure that your antiviruses, antimalware, and firewalls are all updated with the latest threat definitions. 

Keep a Backup

Most importantly, you may think you are in control, but it only takes one thing to slip by your defenses to complicate things. That’s why you will want to keep routine and periodic backups to ensure that if something does happen that you can restore from backup quickly and get back in business fast.
