Four ways to help prevent security breaches
1. Use anti-virus software
If you’re not already using anti-virus software, it’s a great place to start. Up-to-date software protects you from the latest malware, and patches help detect the latest malware that comes out.
2. Deploy multi-factor authorization
This is typically two-step authentication where users enter their password and are prompted to finish login on another device or app. Multi-factor authorization is effective because it means a hacker needs to get you twice with different approaches to login or access sensitive information.
3. Create a security-centric culture
Hold meetings and workshops that get all employees onboard with what security looks like and arm them with the tools and knowledge they need to safely browse the web and identify suspicious emails so they can protect themselves and the business.
4. Work with an IT security expert
