Viruses are one of the most common threats that hurt a company and often implemented from external hackers. Your employees can easily and unknowingly download a virus just from opening up a fake email or visiting an unsecure website. To prevent this, always train your employees on how to identify phishing emails and how to quickly verify if a site is secure. You can also set up a company network to block users from accessing sites that are not secure and not allow employees to use their personal email while at work. Also, regularly use anti-virus software to detect viruses and ensure all workstations have an active virus scanner in place.
Your company network is the heartbeat of your business. Thus, it’s critical to ensure it is secure and that everyone who has access to it receives security training and is authorized to use it. By taking these measures, you can better protect your computer network.
