Privacy and security are two growing areas for small business owners. Most businesses have at least some digital presence. Keeping your own data and the information provided by customers safe is crucial. In report by Verizon, they found that there were 53,000 data incidents in 2018, including 2,216 confirmed data breaches. As a small business owner, there are measures you can take to help protect your company from these threats. Install Anti-Malware Software. An anti-malware software is designed to prevent various types of online attacks on your computer. Malware is a general term for a program that can harm your device. It could be a virus, phishing sites, ransomware, spyware, etc. Having this type of software in place is one of the most basic, yet very effective, ways to protect your business from digital threats. If you have more than one computer or device, you should get anti-malware for all of them. Update Your Software. Updating your existing software is another easy but effective measure you can take. When a software has an update, it can provide additional protection from malware. Sometimes, a software might release a new patch. If a new patch is available, make sure to perform the update. It’s a good idea to turn on automatic updates so you don’t have to worry about manually updating all of your software.
