After reading an article in Dark Reading, I was shocked to find out that over fifty percent of small to medium sized businesses (SMB) do not think they are at risk of cyber attacks. On top of that, I found it interesting that seventy-six percent of SMBs were not using multi-factor authentication either for their accounts. While saying this, these numbers may soon change thanks to the government signing in the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Small Business Cybersecurity Act. According to Congress.gov, this bill amends the National Institute of Standards and Technology Act to require the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to consider small businesses when it facilitates and supports the development of voluntary, consensus-based, industry-led guidelines and procedures to cost-effectively reduce cyber risks to critical infrastructure.
In light of these statistics and the recent bill being passed, I have made three tips that I have found most important since I have started working at Jungle Disk earlier this summer.
I believe these tips are fairly easy to follow and will help protect your personal or business data more than it initially would have been. Once again, keep your critical business data protected!
