Now is the time to focus on digital security for your business. Don’t worry, it is not as hard as it sounds. Keep reading for specific ways to safeguard your data and business from implementing data organization technology like Kubernetes AWS to training your employees.

Create a Comprehensive List 

If you want to protect your digital assets, you need to know what you have. Create a comprehensive list of all your assets. Think of anything online, or that is on your business’s server that may have value. You want to include things that your business owns, things no one else has and that they may want to take or buy, and virtually anything of value. Consider if your digital assets were items that were being offered for sale. What would you consider valuable if you were buying your business? This list is invaluable to know what you have and what you need to protect.

Invest in Employee Education 

Today, more jobs than ever before operate remotely. Because of this, you must provide your employees with sign-in information and passwords for some of the assets your business has. In this case, using a password management tool is a smart move. You can store the information online and make sure that employees do not share this information. You also need to invest in employee education. This should include safe digital practices and when and where employees can use their devices to help prevent cases of cybersecurity hacking.

Keep Updated and Secure Your Wi-Fi

One of the most common ways hackers will access your digital assets is through security weaknesses and loopholes. Be sure you have put in proper protections for your digital assets by keeping everything updated. This includes applications, your operating system, and any cloud-based applications you use for storing digital assets.

 

It is also important to secure your Wi-Fi, as this is a huge part of most businesses today. You should follow Wi-Fi security best practices to help ensure your digital assets remain safe. Also, make sure you keep your router somewhere you can secure it. Other steps include changing the name of your network, enabling a strong firewall, and making regular updates to your software and firmware. Keep in mind that this is not a comprehensive list of how you can protect your Wi-Fi signal. Most modern routers provide you with the option to encrypt all data. You should take advantage of this.

Use Protective Agreements

You can protect your digital assets with agreements between people who may steal them. It may be wise to create these agreements between consultants, clients, and employees. You can use non-disclosure agreements, which put other people on notice that if they steal digital assets, it could result in some type of legal action against them.

Purchase Cyber Insurance

Cyber insurance can be a smart investment for your business. It will protect against any type of internet-based risk. This insurance coverage can also cover any costs related to investigations, extortion, and lawsuits. With this coverage, you can feel confident that if an issue occurs, you will be able to get your business back up and running faster than if you did not have it.

Protect Your Business and Digital Assets

You can’t be too careful when it comes to your business’s digital assets. Now is the time to put the proper safeguards in place, which will help ensure that if an issue occurs, you have a plan to mitigate the damage and downtime. While it is not possible to protect your digital assets completely, with the tips above, you are on the right path. You can also hire a third-party professional to help you safeguard these assets.
