EDUCATION

 

Educate yourself and employees. Make them aware of the risk and what precautions to take.

 

ANTI-SPYWARE

 

Explore Anti-Spyware programs - but like all things, make sure it is offered by a reputable company

(perhaps the same place you purchase anti-virus software).

 

UNATTENDED LAPTOP

 

When you aren't using your laptop, don't simply leave it around and available for others to use.

 

PASSWORD POLICY

 

Establish a password policy for you and your employees - passwords should be strong, random and it is wise to change them frequently.

 

PAPER FILES

 

Buy a shredder - remember, it is NOT just digital files that are susceptible to cyber crime!

 

ANTI-VIRUS
SOFTWARE

 

Make sure you have an anti-virus program installed and it is kept up to date.

 

DOWNLOADS & LINKS

 

Be careful what you download and what links you click!  This is most important for your employees.  

 

PASSWORD PROTECTION

 

Consider password protection of your computer, key files and wireless (WiFi) connection. 

 

VIRTUAL PRIVATE NETWORK

 

Consider using a "Virtual Private Network (VPN)" to ensure that all your traffic is encrypted when you are on a public wireless network. VPN solutions are available for personal computers and mobile platforms.
