Most of the IT decision makers agree security is one of their main concerns when it comes to cloud-based services. If you’re a small business owner you most likely think along the same line as the IT pros. However, it’s fairly well understood that most cloud service providers implement and manage considerably better IT security controls than on-premise implementations.
The argument in favor of using the cloud to store information sounds good, but one might ask why do we hear so much about data breaches? The real issue is we’re dealing with more of a business process problem than an IT problem. Without action many business owners will likely encounter some form of a computer virus or malware impacting their business operation in the near future. Businesses just need to put security processes and procedures in place to ensure a sound business future.
Here are some suggestions to get started:
Establish a company policy on computer usage.
Provide periodic cyber security awareness training for employees
Implement a comprehensive plan to secure mobile access to the business computer network.
Make sure all computers are running a good anti-virus program.with automatic updates.
Enable the firewall on all computers.
Periodically backup all computer data.
Generate a disaster recovery plan.
