Most small business owners and managers haven’t had extensive cyber training, and while we all have enough knowledge to be a little dangerous, it’s to your benefit to seek out the help of experts that can put you in the best position to secure your business. With that said, how do you know if you are getting the most out of your cybersecurity strategy? These four areas will have you up to speed in no time. Let’s get started. Understanding the risks Before you can put together a plan, you have to understand the threats to your business. From ransomware and malware to data theft and banking breaches, there are many forms of cybercrime that can harm your company and your customers. Resources from the FBI and the Better Business Bureau can help bring you up to speed on what your company may be vulnerable to and what you should be doing to address the gaps.
