To protect you against this, we require employees to follow the best practices in password management and incorporate strategies to ensure that weak passwords are never used. Here are some:
- Prohibit the use of the most common passwords. We start with the most commonly-hacked words.

These websites are dangerous because attackers may include spyware, viruses, and worms into the files. When these files are downloaded, your company computer becomes infected which you surely don’t want to happen.

10. [New!] Cyber Security Training for EmployeesYour employees need REGULAR online cybersecurity training to protect themselves and the company against cyberattacks. Security-savvy employees are your primary defense against hacking. Those who aren’t equipped may open an email and attachment without suspecting that such email was infected by a spyware. A popular tactic among hackers is to incorporate malware into a malicious file from unsecured sources. Once it is downloaded by an employee, it can give the hacker complete access to your device, and even the whole network. Yes, you may have firewalls in place, but they’re just not enough. Employees are the most common entry points for ‘phishers’ and investing in their cybersecurity training is one of the best decisions you can make. We provide basic training for this. For example, we educate them how to identify spam content that could be hiding malicious software. The training also includes awareness of the dirty tricks that lead employees to download ransomware, or ‘social engineering’ mechanisms that fake trusted online identities.
11. Maximize Confidentiality of Emails
Employees may send sensitive or confidential company information and documents. Some industries like those in the healthcare service are required to protect their client’s sensitive information. It is a must for employees to know how to secure confidential documents before send the email. We both train employees and arrange email systems to maximize confidentiality in sending or receiving sensitive data.
12. Secure Remote Access Activities
Using remote access tools such as TeamViewer, Anydesk, Remote Desktop pose data security threats to your business. It brings convenience by enabling other users to access from a remote location, but one wrong move can cause your network to fall into the wrong people. Once they gain access, they can cause data theft or deploy ransomware. To mitigate the risks, we introduce solutions such as using a business-grade VPN, limiting long-term access, or introducing reliable intrusion detection systems (IDS) and Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS).
