Data is your second most valuable asset in your business.

If you own a business, you need to put a plan in place to protect all forms of data. Does your company plan know how to recover lost or hijacked computer data?

We have all read the articles and heard many folks describe a horrible experience with lost business data. A disgruntled employee deleted all the engineering drawings, the backup has failed for the last two months, someone opened an email and now the company share has been hijacked for a bitcoin payment.

Lost data can be avoided and you can feel more confident about it. We share and implement many of the solid strategies that have led to successful data protection. A process in place that manages your business data can allow you to rest easily knowing that you can continue regardless of what hackers choose to throw your way.

1. Determine what you need to protect. I agree that most companies are compelled to fix their process for data protection because the SEC, Investor or Bank has asked you how you do it. An owner becomes highly motivated when a fortune has been spent on an ERP, CRM or Order Processing software solution. Identifying the data you need to protect, making sure you know where and how it is created or collected, and who can access it next, goes a long way towards protecting and completing your Data Protection Process.

2. Conduct a security audit. An audit by a Technology security professional can help you identify what parts of your business are vulnerable and what data needs to be protected. It goes beyond revealing weaknesses at different points in your business infrastructure (computers and servers, networks, laptops, and mobile phones). A Technology Audit helps to reign in and control these assets.

3. Have you considered the human factor. Malicious intent, human beings represent the most significant threat to data security. Setting aside time to train employees on protecting their work has the greatest impact on keeping data safe. A trained employee has a better chance of knowing to question an attachment or stop from opening a corrupted URL of a compromised website. The employees share their stories with each other, building crucial tribal protection knowledge.

4. We have all heard of businesses closing after a breach or loss of their data. Why would you want to disregard the steps necessary to keep it safe? Why would you want to join the negative percentage and must tell your employees to go home? Why not have a leg up on mother nature and her entourage of flooding, fires, and power outages?

5. The process is not over, it requires continual management. Quarterly testing, monthly patching and daily prevention tools keep data protected. Reviewing a tested Incident Response Plan helps businesses keep the costs down on Data Protection.

We are your partner in this epic challenge. Allow us to lead and keep you safe from cyber dangers. Don’t get knocked out of the business game with a hacker sucker punch.
