How to protect your company from phishing attacks

Posted: 25 June 2021


Technology has introduced many opportunities, but it has also made space for security risks. Phishing scams are a threat to businesses but fortunately, there are ways to protect your business data. 

Here are a few tips:



  1. Install security software including antivirus programs, spam filters and firewall programs. As the first line of defence, security software can prevent your employees from accessing malicious websites. 
  2. Make sure that the software is up to date. Outdated software presents a security risk and increases the chance of phishing scams. Schedule regular updates for security software, operating system software and internet browsers and apps.
  3. Look after your remote workers. As remote work increases in popularity, it’s important to allow remote workers safe access to your central server through encryptions and password policies. Educating your team on best practice is equally important.
  4. Schedule regular backups to protect existing information in the case of an emergency. Regular backups will ensure that your company data will be fully recoverable. 
  5. Be strict with password protection. Sensitive business information is often protected by passwords. Enforcing password policies with an expiration date and rules for characters help to make them more difficult to hack. 

While protecting your business from criminals online is crucial, protecting it from physical threats like break-ins is just as important. This week, we profiled three businesses that make use of Storage King’s safe and secure self storage facilities as an added precaution. See who featured below.
