Your files, documents, devices, and protocols have to be protected if you don’t want your business to collapse all around you.
When you run a business, you can’t take security lightly. Your files, documents, devices, and protocols have to be protected if you don’t want your business to collapse all around you. Shady competitors can also access your trade secrets and use them against you if your security is lax.
Here are 3 tips you should consider as far as security for your business is concerned:
Set up “Least privilege” protocols: Make sure your employees only have access to what they need to do their jobs. Don’t open up access to sensitive stuff to every employee. That could be disastrous.
Create a start-to-finish process: Set up a clear process for deciding what kind of network privileges and devices new employees can use or access. Do the same for when employees leave and when they change roles. Block access and retrieve company data once employees leave. Keep in mind that this could be complex if your employees currently use personal devices.
Train, train, train: If your staff doesn’t know the risks and legal requirements surrounding data security, you are inviting trouble and vulnerabilities. Explain potential issues and make sure you train them on best practices.
Hackers are real. Data breaches by old employees are real. Trade secret sale by former employees is a real thing. Don’t sleep on Okada.
