“Hot” Cybersecurity Tips to Protect Your Small Business This Summer

While customers are enjoying summer vacations and warmer weather, many businesses might find that their day-to-day responsibilities begin to slow down during the summer months. Rather than sit back and wait for vacation season to pass and business to pick back up, use this time as an opportunity for your small business to get ahead. Here are some cybersecurity tips to make the most of this downtime. 

Revisit your business goals 

 

Meeting with your team to discuss business goals can help you determine what security practices will need to be set to support these goals. If you are unsure where cybersecurity fits into your business goals, consider scheduling a consultation with Blue Layer to gain professional advice. 

 

Educate employees on cybersecurity

 

Many system breaches can be avoided by educating your team. Training your employees to follow basic security practices and setting policies to make them aware of potential threats can prevent common attacks that are easily avoidable. Use this time to refresh your team on basic reminders like the importance of setting strong passwords, best practices for handling customer information, and employee access policies to prevent unauthorized access to secure data. Blue Layer’s Security Awareness Training is an ideal option for making sure your team is best prepared.

 

Get up to date 

 

Ensuring that security software, web browsers, and supported operating systems are up to date is part of your business’s responsibility to defend data from potential threats. Update passwords and consider Two-Factor Authentication to ensure your wifi networks and accounts are secure. If your business has grown faster than your security protocols can keep up, then we recommend our Managed Services to assist in heightening your security.

 

Getting ahead on cybersecurity this summer will ensure your business can keep up when your customers come back refreshed and energized, ready to focus on their goals. To learn more about protecting your business with Blue Layer’s curated set of software and monitoring services, contact us today
