Cyber Security – What You Need to Know

Cyber Security Awareness

National Cyber Security Awareness Month is upon us, but it’s important to #beCyberSmart all year long.  In this post, we share the top 5 things that help keep your business safe and prepared.  For a deeper dive from our experts, watch the video below.

5 Things to Remember to #BeCyberSmart:

1. Managed Firewall

To ensure your firewall remains secure, update and maintain it regularly. A managed firewall solution makes this easy to maintain for businesses.

2. Device Management 

Regular security maintenance are often forgotten. With the help of an agent, General Informatics engineers are notified when a device needs patches or anti-virus updates. Additionally, device management is a remote process that does not impact the user. 

3. Server Management 

Similar to device management, servers need regular maintenance and updates. The General Informatics IT Team makes it easy to ensure your server remains secure.

4. VPN Connection

Whether your employees work from home or in the office, a VPN connection keeps your team connected. Additionally, a secure VPN connection allows employees to directly connect to the office, preventing the threat of an outsider accessing your data. 

5. Phishing Prevention

ThreatWatch 365 services include Security Awareness Training and Advanced Email Security. To prevent a cyber attack, your employees must be prepared. With engaging and interactive courses, your team will know what to look for and how to avoid common mistakes. Equally important is combatting phishing.  To accomplish this, Fortress 365 – Advanced Email Security services preemptively discover and avert phishing campaigns so they never reach your inbox.
