Cybersecurity isn’t getting any easier, but with a little bit of research and a few tricks up your sleeve, you can make it stress-free. Today we’ll give you a comprehensive checklist to make sure you’ve got everything it takes to keep your data and devices secure.

Checking the Right Boxes

You could spend years trying to perfect your cybersecurity processes and still end up with a less-than-perfect plan. Why is this? Well, the truth is that cybersecurity isn’t about doing everything; it’s about doing only the right things for your specific needs and goals. Stretching yourself too thin or focusing on the wrong things can sometimes hurt more than it helps.

That’s why it’s best to compile a checklist like this one and refer to it regularly—just to make sure your cybersecurity processes are on track!

#1: Do you have a disaster recovery plan?
Disaster recovery plans are a great place to start because they make you think in a new way. For example, you have to know which systems to prioritize, which devices are easiest to get back online, and what data you have to be able to access—which, in turn, helps you know where to focus your cybersecurity processes.

#2: Is everyone on the same page?
Communicating your security values and encouraging good online and offline habits is a huge part of cybersecurity. Make sure employees are always on the same page—and gentle reminders are always helpful, too.

#3: Do you always update?
Updates are crucial to cybersecurity processes. Remember never to put them off—especially when it comes to your firewalls, network, and anti-virus software.

These are just a few ways to keep your data and devices secure. For more cybersecurity tips, contact us today!
