Start With The Basics
Start by setting up strong passwords and scheduling a recurrent periods to change company passwords. Set company computers up with protective and preventative services like encryption technology, anti-virus, spam, and spyware.
Keep Your Systems Updated
Software updates can sometimes fix any security problem you may be having. Make sure to stay on top of updates on all company computers to ensure the protection against any cyber threats. By allowing programs to install updates automatically you have no maintenance to worry about.
