October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month

Not sure if you knew, but October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month–and a great time to review your cyber crime prevention efforts.

Cyber crime is growing and any business could be at risk. 43% of cyber attacks are aimed at small businesses, with those in education, research, and healthcare the most vulnerable. There is estimated to be one ransomware attack every 11 seconds.

These statistics show that it’s a matter of when, not if, a cyber attack occurs—so make sure your business is as safe as possible with some basic risk management techniques, and have the right cyber insurance coverage in place to help after an attack or breach.

These cybersecurity tips are a starting point to help begin to protect your business from cyber risks:

  • Train your employees on safe cyber practices, such as avoiding unknown links.

  • Use multifactor authentication.

  • Secure your WiFi.

  • Back up your data.
