3 Key Measures to Protect Your Company's Network and Data

Is someone actively managing your network? Far too often, I talk with companies where no one is managing their networks. Networks are set up and then just left to run on their own.

While networks can work reliably for a year or more after an initial setup, it’s risky to leave it to chance. To ensure your network is reliable and protected, make sure these key measures are taken:

1) Maintain Security

Security vulnerabilities are regularly found and hackers frequently exploit them. To protect your network, you need to regularly update your anti-virus software and other programs. Also, you want a firewall to protect your network while permitting employees the access they need.

2) Manage Access

Appropriate access controls make sure employees can only see those things to which they should have access. Without appropriate controls, a tech savvy employee can often get access to sensitive information, such as other employee’s salaries or company financials. You can protect your company from problematic situations by managing access to your network and servers in a way that protects sensitive data.

3) Regularly Check Backups

Backup systems do fail. The biggest problem is that companies do not find out a backup is not working until it is too late. To avoid this problem, someone needs to regularly check backups to ensure that the data you think is getting backed up really is.

By implementing these three measures, you can be much more confident that your network will not fail your business.
