Your credentials can be phished, period. If you think you’re above being phished, you’re wrong. We all have weak moments and the criminals are really good at praying on our whims and emotions. Trust me, you can be phished. Don’t put so much pressure on yourself. Implement multi-factor authentication (MFA) wherever possible to protect your accounts even if you are phished. This is so important that we put together a video to show you how. Watch this video. Please just give us a call if you want help or want to discuss additional configuration options to ease implementation for your business. We will be happy to help.
If you don’t know anything about Office 365 Multi-Factor Authentication please check out our blog and video from December 2017 for a complete overview https://www.gowestit.com/office-365-multi-factor-authentication.
Your business is vulnerable to cyber criminals, period.
The truth is that no business is fully “secure”. Rather, businesses assume various amounts of acceptable risk. Your responsibility is to figure out where your organization lies on the security spectrum, how much cyber risk you are willing to comfortably assume, and continually act to reduce your risk to those levels.
We understand that most businesses, especially SMB’s, can’t and won’t do everything their IT provider may recommend. This is true for a myriad of reasons including operational efficiency, timing, focus on your core business, and of course budget considerations. We also believe that most businesses do not realize the amount of risk which they current assume. If you did, you would likely already be doing more!
To this end, Go West IT has developed our “Top Ten Task to Mitigate Cyber Risk”
Review your security posture with your current IT provider and discuss how to implement the next best thing you can do to reduce your risk (HINT: If you’ve done nothing to date, start with backups, patching, and multi-factor authentication). If you need help please give us a shout, our experts will help you recognize, plan, and take the steps to mitigate your risk.
Understand where you are today… know where you want to be tomorrow… build the roadmap to get you there. You can reduce your risk, get started today!
