For many people, the internet is a place of innovation and excitement. However for those in charge of cyber security at Tech Engine Australia, it’s a constant game to stay ahead of hackers who are constantly looking for new ways in which they can exploit vulnerabilities.

In recent years there have been more than 5 million data breaches across different industries with each company losing up to an average $400M worth annually because businesses do not invest enough on this important issue.

If you want to protect your business from cyber threats, it’s crucial that employees are trained in creating a more secure email environment. Your company can be at risk if staff members have no knowledge of the onslaught of online attacks that happen every day.

It is therefore of utmost importance that they are always up-to-date on the best procedures to keep the company safe.

In an effort to save you and your company from the horrors of a cyber-attack, here is a list of tips that help safeguard your business.

  • Never open links or attachments from unknown persons.
  • Don’t respond to emails that request a password change and require you to divulge personal information — no matter how official the source appears.
  • Ensure antivirus and anti-spy software is updated on your computer.
  • Encrypt any emails containing sensitive data before sending.
  • Don’t use your company email address to send and receive personal emails.
  • Don’t automatically forward company emails to a third-party email system.
  • Create strict standards for company-related Mobile Device usage

Mobile devices have become an important tool of the workforce and with them comes another wave of cyber threats. In order to keep mobile data safe, companies should make sure their employees are using password-protected phones that encrypt emails as well as downloading security apps approved by IT personnel in charge for managing such matters.
