Good Cybersecurity Practices — How To Protect Your Digital Assets

What Are Digital Assets

Backup Your Data

Secure Your Network And Devices

  • Set up a firewall to examine and filter all the information coming through your Internet connection. A firewall is the first line of defense because it can stop malicious programs or attackers from gaining access to your network and information.
  • Install business security software on all of your company’s computers and devices to protect against viruses, malware and spyware.
  • Update your software regularly including your operating system and security software. Regular updates will ensure that your software is protected against the latest cybersecurity threats.

Manage Your Organisation’s Passwords

Educate Your Staff And Establish Policies

  • How to maintain strong passwords.
  • Best online practices when using work computers, devices and emails.
  • How to treat fraudulent emails.
  • Their responsibilities and rights when using the company’s secure network and computers.
  • How to report suspected security threats.

Other Measures You Can Take

  • Consider getting cyber liability insurance for your business. While it may not directly protect your digital assets, it will cover the cost to recover from a virus, cyberattack or data breach, and the resulting legal claims.
  • Invest in a secure online platform for customer transactions and make sure it stores customer information safely.
  • Consult a professional to conduct cybersecurity audits for your company. Professionals such as Lateral will thoroughly review the quality of your business’s software code, data storage, encryption and communication, as well as provide solutions to fix any security issue that are discovered.
