Large companies like Target are often the target of hackers for their immense trove of data including over 40 million consumers’ personal information. There is an obvious reason why they would be attacked on a regular basis for the sheer volume and potential value of the stolen data.
But don’t be fooled into a false sense of security just because your business is small. You and your company probably have hundreds, if not thousands, of clients’ information stored away in your systems. Hackers would love nothing more than to breach your systems and make a profit off of any holes in your security.
How do you protect yourself? By limiting what websites your employees can access, ensuring strong passwords are utilized, and always keeping all systems up-to-date on all patches, updates, and software upgrades. Two-step verification also is a great way to beef up your security.
