  • 7 Small Business Security Tips
  • Use Complex Passwords
    • Greater than 8 characters
    • Changed frequently
    • Unrelated to you, activities or interests.
    • Same password not used on multiple sites
    • Generate a secure password: http://bit.ly/strongpassword
  • Use Updated AV Protection
    • Modern anti-virus scanners protect against multiple threats
    • Only run one AV scanner at a time
    • Recommended:
    • AVG, TrendMicro, MS Security Essentials, AVIRA
  • Secure Your DNS Server
    • DNS resolves domain names to their IP
    • DNS compromises can result in unknown data theft
    • OpenDNS offers stats and malware detection
    • Can aid in filtering unwanted content in your network
  • Lock Your Devices
    • Smartphones give access to TONS of data
    • Passcodes and remote access can aid in loss/theft
    • Set a unique, random passcode and change regularly
    • Lock your computer when you step away
    • Require a password on startup
  • Destroy Sensitive Documents
    • Shred documents securely with any sensitive information
    • Do not keep written password lying around
    • Do not save credit card numbers in unencrypted files
    • Consider using cloud-based data storage & backup
  • Update Your Web Browser
    • Old/Outdated Web Browsers pose major security risks
    • Update any plugins that you have in them
    • Consider keeping multiple browsers on your system
    • Firefox, Chromeand Opera
    • Update Adobe Flash regularly
  • Secure Your Social Networks
    • Leverage Privacy options to remove potentially-risky data
    • Date of Birth, Hometown, Pet Names, Favorite Color, etc.
    • Use secure passwords and change regularly
    • Associate with a monitored email account
    • Be vigilant against scams from ‘innocent’ links
  • Never forget…
    Security is not about making life harder;
    It’s about limiting the scope and impact fromrisks.
    Alwaysthink about how an attackerwillget in, whatthey have access to and how youcanrecoverfromit.
